Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar refused to condemn her previous comments that accused Israel of “hypnotizing the world” Thursday; saying she was unsure why “Jewish-Americans” would find her statement “offensive.”
Omar was speaking with CNN when she defended her vicious rhetoric against the Jewish State back in 2012 when she posted “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

“I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish Americans. My comments are precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza War. I’m clearly speaking about the way the Israeli regime was conducting itself in that war,” said Omar.
