Neo-Nazi Ilhan Omar goes on antisemitic twitter rant

I first began exposing and reporting on Ilhan Omar back in 2014 when she instigated the violent outbreak at a recent Democratic caucus meeting in Minneapolis. Somali Muslims brawl abruptly ending Democratic caucus. The media gave her the knowing wink and ignored it. The incest (she married her brother despite she already being married), working in the cause of ISIS recruits, opposition to anti-FGM legislation, and the ongoing Jew hatred have made her a darling of the left. And, as is their fashion, American Jewish groups like ADL, stay silent while attacking proud Jews like my colleagues and me.

Jewish News: The American Jewish community seems to be facing a threat that it appears quite content to ignore.

Not since the aviator legend Charles Lindbergh gathered fellow American Nazis together and others condemned American Jews as being a “fifth column” has the American Jewish community faced such a threat as it does today from openly anti-Semitic candidates recently elected to Congress.

If the past is any way to predict how Jews will respond to this threat, sadly, the vast majority will probably remain indifferent to the ominous political changes now taking place around them. Their indifference, however, is likely to come with an eventual cost.

Today’s Congressional freshmen class includes Democrats who clearly seek to upend the belief held by members of the Jewish community that they are a respected minority within the American society. These newly elected members seem to be trying to isolate the Jewish community from their political base by engaging in the traditional canard used by past demagogues, from Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s tweet accusing Jews of dual loyalty to the age-old lies that Jews conspire to control the media and finance.

These anti-Semitic falsehoods are being promoted against a backdrop of increased assaults on members of the Jewish community at a rate not seen in generations (most recently here and here).

And Dem leadership rewarded her by giving her a coveted spot on the House Foreign Relations Committee. Sign this petition.

Omar has previously taken heat for her views regarding Israel.

By Allan Smith, NBC News, February 11, 2019:

Freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress last fall — is accused of sending a string of “anti-Semitic” tweets regarding the Israeli lobby in the U.S.

Omar, a proponent of the BDS — Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions — movement aimed at putting economic and political pressure on Israel over its treatment of Palestinians, first tweeted Sunday night that money was driving U.S. politicians to defend Israel. then tweeted that AIPAC — The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee — was paying politicians to support Israel.

Omar, a Somalian refugee, came under fire from some Democrats

AIPAC, a non-profit that does not donate directly to candidates but works to promote a staunchly pro-Israel message in Washington, D.C., responded to Omar, tweeting that it is “proud that we are engaged in the democratic process to strengthen the US-Israel relationship.”

“Our bipartisan efforts are reflective of American values and interests,” the group’s tweet continued. “We will not be deterred in any way by ill-informed and illegitimate attacks on this important work.”

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, tweeted that she would reach out to Omar’s office on Monday to discuss “anti-Semitic tropes.” Omar tweeted that she would be happy to chat with Clinton.

Omar, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, was originally responding in her earliest tweet to criticism from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy over her prior comments regarding Israel. McCarthy and other Republicans have called on Democratic leadership to “take action” regarding Omar and fellow Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, another recently elected Muslim woman, over their criticism of Israel. McCarthy compared it to Republicans having taken action regarding the racist remarks made by Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa.
