Democrats Again Show Their Antisemitism with Placement of Terror-Tied Ilhan Omar On Foreign Affairs Committee

In the new Democrat House, Omar is being rewarded rather than censured and investigated.

The Washington Examiner reported Thursday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), whose open hatred of Jews should have rendered her unelectable to Congress, has instead been rewarded with a plum appointment to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

This shows the extent to which open anti-Semitism has become mainstream and normalized on the Left today. In fact, it is likely that Omar’s paranoid hatred of Israel, rooted in Islamic anti-Semitism, made her a good candidate for this position in the eyes of Democrat leaders, who have been following a consistent anti-Israel line for years.

“Israel has hypnotized the world,” Omar wrote in a now-infamous weet. “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”

Trying to explain that tweet, Omar only made matters worse. She told Christiane Amanpour that while her language was “unfortunate,” those were “the only words” she could find to do justice to how she felt about Israel’s defensive action in Gaza in 2012. Then she told Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto: “I don’t know how my comments could be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

The hijabed (and therefore pro-Sharia) Omar was less delicate when she fired back online at a man who challenged the tweet: “Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness.”

All this is just the tip of the iceberg regarding Ilhan Omar. Adam Kredo reported in the Washington Free Beacon last August that while she was serving in the Minnesota state House, Omar “once voted against a state bill to stop insurance payments to those convicted of terror acts, adding more fuel to accusations the candidate represents a fringe, anti-Israel section of the Democratic Party. Omar, a Muslim Somali-American who has come under fire for her harsh criticism of Israel, was one of just two lawmakers in 2017 who voted against a Minnesota bill to deny life insurance payments to any person convicted of aiding or committing terror acts, according to official vote tallies.”
