“In the situation of Palestine, what we are doing right now is having hypocrisy in not celebrating non-violent movements there and condemning it,” said Rep. Omar.
“That’s what we’re dealing with in the Halls of Congress. That is in the media, in regards to people who are not-violently wanting to resist and fight for the liberation of the Palestinian people. That hypocrisy needs to end,” she added.
Ilhan Omar made national headlines earlier this year for a series of anti-Israeli controversies; accusing American politicians of holding a secret allegiance to the world’s only Jewish State.
Omar also defended Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent controversial Holocaust remarks last Friday; saying people are “in camps” and being “concentrated,” therefore they are “Concentration Camps.”
“When you look at what is taking place, people are being put in camps. And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition,” Omar said during a recent interview.
“I think a lot of people are conflating what a death camp looks like or a specific removal of people. These people are coming to the border. We are removing them from the border. We are placing them in camps. Some of them are being removed from communities and being put in what we’re calling detention centers — but are essentially camps,” she added.
