OMAR SHOCKS: Ilhan Says Jewish Members of Congress Not ‘Seeking Justice Around the World’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.30.21

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar sparked a furious backlash Wednesday after she appeared on CNN; telling host Jake Tapper that Jewish Members of Congress are not “partners in Justice” and are not “equally engaging in seeking Justice around the world.”

“In 2019, you said lawmakers support Israel because it’s ‘all about the Benjamins.’ Which implies they only support Israel because of the money… Do you understand why some of your fellow House Democrats -especially Jews- find that language anti-Semitic?” asked CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I welcome any conversation, to learn from them, for them to learn from me. It’s really important for these Members to realize that they haven’t been partners in Justice. They haven’t been equally engaging in seeking Justice around the world. I will continue to do that,” said Omar.

“Omar’s comments draw on classic antisemitic themes about Jewish clannishness, the notion that Jews only look out for themselves. They’re also plainly false,” said Avi Mayer of the American Jewish Committee. “Jewish lawmakers have been on the front lines, fighting for human rights in America and globally.”

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Blames Border Crisis on ‘White Nationalism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.29.19

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in on the country’s escalating border crisis this week; baselessly blaming the migrant caravan’s arrival in El Paso on “white nationalism.”

“This is abhorrent and inhumane. It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better,” tweeted Omar.

The embattled legislator made national headlines weeks ago when she accused American politicians of supporting Israel due to secret campaign donations and a “dual loyalty” to the Jewish State.

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Claims Israel Denying ‘Freedom’ to Millions, Mocks Their ‘Democracy’

Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to escalate her fiery rhetoric against Israel this week; saying their government is denying “freedom” to millions of Palestinians while mocking the Jewish State’s “Democracy.”

“We in the United States have a constructive role to play. We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East,” mocked Omar.

“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid,” she added.

Omar posted a massive, anti-Israeli tirade on social media Friday, just hours after she was denied entry into the Jewish State for her outspoken support of multiple boycott initiatives.

“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress. But since we were unable to fulfill our role as legislators, I am sharing what we would have seen,” she posted on Twitter. “First, I planned to hold meetings with members of the Knesset (both Jewish and Arab) along with Israeli security officials.”

“The humanitarian crisis in Gaza is one of the worst in the world—with 97% of water unfit for human consumption and on the verge of collapse. Most of the people in Gaza are children,” she added. “77% of shops have closed bc of military occupation. Palestinians walk with garbage nets above their heads, put up to catch trash thrown by settlers. Violent attacks on Palestinians are routine.”
