Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to AIPAC Tuesday; accusing the organization of opposing “efforts to guarantee peace and human rights in the region.”
“I —like so many others—have not criticized AIPAC because of its membership or the country it advocates for. I’ve criticized it because it has repeatedly opposed efforts to guarantee peace and human rights in the region,” posted Omar on social media.
“AIPAC and Netanyahu vigorously opposed President Obama’s efforts to secure the Iran nuclear deal ⁃AIPAC and Netanyahu openly opposed the Oslo Accords— and the 1993 peace process,” she added.
