Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been in Congress less than 7 months but she's managed to upset many by repeatedly demonstrating her blunt anti-Semitism, while at the same time denying she’s an anti-Semite.
Some of her anti-Semitic remarks include:
A tweet about Israel hypnotizing the world
Her accusations of Jewish American Citizens having dual loyalties to Israel
Her support of the anti-Semitic BDS movement
And the comparison she made between Israel and Nazi Germany.
Appearing on CBS This Morning on Wednesday July 17th, Omar was asked by host Gayle King if she was sorry for these comments, she emphatically stated "I'm not."
On Tuesday July 16th, Congresswoman Omar used her legislative powers to promote her antisemitism even further. Despite her pre-election position of not supporting the BDS Movement, which was just labeled as illegal by Germany for being antisemitic, Congresswoman Omar introduced a pro-BDS House Resolution (HR 496).
HR 496 supports the vile antisemitic Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Movement which is a forefront of terror organizations in the U.S. that promotes violence against Jews and advocates for the annilhation of the state of Israel.
In her House Resolution, Congresswoman Omar goes one step further and compares the boycott against Nazi Germany to a boycott of Israel in a clear violation of IHRA's definition of antisemitism.
