To say Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is a friend of the Jews is like admitting Alec Baldwin does a good Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.”
It’s just not true, no matter how anyone attempts to spin it.
In New York City, hundreds of Jews took to the streets to protest the embattled Congresswoman.
Here’s the scoop…
From Daily Wire:
Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!”
“Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.”
If she isn’t removed, & Jewish Reps remain silent their seats won’t be safe in 2020. Silence is complicity & the Dems seem to have placed their bet on the antisemitic horses! pic.twitter.com/KbdarvT3Bs

Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror.
Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?”
Food for thought, at the very least.
From Free Beacon:
Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view.
Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.
Vice President Mike Pence often remains quiet while working on behalf of the nation as the president’s right-hand man.
However, the VP decided to make it known back in February that he was ticked off with Ilhan and her anti-Semitic tweets.
Pence says Omar must “face the consequences.”
In other words, she needs to resign.
.@IlhanMN tweets were a disgrace & her apology was inadequate. Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress, much less the Foreign Affairs Committee. Those who engage in anti-Semitic tropes should not just be denounced, they should face consequences for their words.

President Trump, too, said Omar needs to step down.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D), who is Jewish, got in on the fun…
Rep. Omar’s use of an anti-Semitic stereotype was offensive and irresponsible.
This kind of intolerance has no place in Congress—or anywhere in American society.
No one should invoke anti-Semitic tropes during policy disagreements.

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.
GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy threatens punishment for @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib over their criticisms of Israel. It's stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans https://t.co/It1fGm1b70
— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) February 10, 2019
Equating @IlhanMN & @RashidaTlaib's criticism of Israel to Steve King's long defense of white supremacy is obscene (McCarthy said it's worse). In the US, we're allowed to criticize our own government: certainly foreign governments. The GOP House Leader's priorities are warped.

Sorry, but you're not going to turn the two first Muslim women to serve in the US Congress into overnight Jew-haters because of their criticisms of Israel. What's actually anti-Semitic is conflating the Government of Israel with Jews, so those of you doing that should stop.

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic sterotype:
If not blatantly obvious to the untrained eye, here’s the problem with her tweet:
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Omar said, a reference to Jewish people and money. A typical antisemitic stereotype.
She then retweeted a “hook-nosed” tweet:

Defending Israel from antisemites is “all about the Benjamins”? Really? It’s about money?
Another antisemitic trope for @Ilhan Omar? She’s like an antisemitic pinball machine that spits out old canards as the ball bounces around her brain.
She’s the gift that keeps on giving! https://t.co/w5HWhLqyWd

You are an anti-Semite.
