Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest remarks about Israel, the United States and Jewish Democratic members of Congress made during a Tuesday CNN interview with Jake Tapper have sparked outrage.
During the segment, the Minnesota Congresswoman defended a recent statement comparing Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban, saying she did not regret the comparison.
When she was asked if she understood why Democrats, especially fellow Jewish Democrats, found her previous comments on Israel to be anti-Semitic, Omar shot back that they were not “partners in justice.”
“I think it’s really important for these members to realize that they haven’t been partners in justice, they haven’t been equally engaging in seeking justice around the world, and I will continue to do that,” she told Tapper. “It is important for me as someone who knows what it feels like to experience injustice in ways that many of my colleagues don’t.”
The interview was quickly condemned on social media.
“Omar’s comments draw on classic anti-Semitic themes about Jewish clannishness, the notion that Jews only look out for themselves. They’re also plainly false,” said the American Jewish Committee’s Avi Mayer. “Jewish lawmakers have been on the front lines, fighting for human rights in America and globally.”
The Republican Jewish Coalition urged their counterparts, the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA), to join them in “calling out Ilhan Omar for saying Jewish members of Congress aren’t ‘partners in justice.’ Or, is the JDCA and @HalieSoifer going to show us all, once again, that they’re frauds?”
Jay Sekulow, attorney for former President Donald Trump and conservative media host, said that Omar
“is past due to be censured & removed from committees.”
He described the two-term rep. as “a repeat offender for anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
Comments Omar has made in the past include her claiming that politicians only support Israel because it’s “all about the Benjamins,” implying politicians only support Israel for financial reasons, and in 2012, tweeting that Israel had “hypnotized the world.”
Seth Mandel, the executive editor of the Washington Examiner, wondered how long it would take before Omar crossed the line for most people.
“Every time this happens a couple more ppl are like ‘That’s it, I’m out.’ At some point it just gets too exhausting to keep giving her mulligans. Last ones off the sinking ship will be ADL and JDCA, to our ppl’s everlasting shame,” he tweeted.

This woman has diarrhea of the mouth and loves Media attention. The more bizarre the statements she makes, the better she likes it. I pay no attention to anything she says because I have come to realize that she has nothing to say. Everything that comes out of her mouth is offensive, divisive, and purely attention-getting.
Notice this is exactly the hateful character of the dishonorable Democrat Party, the political party of hate.
The Democrat Party’s Chutzpah Knows No Bounds.
The definition of “chutzpah.” It’s someone killing his parents and then falling on the mercy of the court on account of his being an orphan.
The dishonorable socialist Democrat Party revolves around and its philosophy is based on Control, Hate, Lies, Cons, Deceptions, Immorality and the lack of Integrity, Ethics or Honor.
And the Democrat Party supports hate groups, i.e.
“Yusra Khogali, leader of the “anti-racist” “Black Lives Matter” movement, does not hide her hatred of white people in her comments on social media. “Plz Allah give me strength to not kill these men and white folks out here today.” Yusra Khogali wrote on Facebook that “Whiteness is not humxness” and that “white skin is sub-humxn,”
To fully advance the demonic, dishonorable Democrat Party’s destructive agendas of Socialism, divide our citizens with hate, open borders, gun control, radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, the LGBTQ lifestyle, unfettered sexual identity, transgender “gay marriage” and the like, the pagan Liberal left Democrats must do away with our Constitution, GOD, common sense, morality, Christian values and free religious exercise altogether.
Under the guise of “anti-discrimination.” 🙁 🙁 🙁
I wonder. DOES SHe think her fellow mudslimes who STONE rape victims to death, who hurl gays off rooftops, and who PAYS the family of Suicide bombers, rather than THEIR VICTIMS, are “partners in justice”???
that kraphole in her ugly face never stops projectile vomiting. perhaps it should be sewn shut. the head is already shrunken. I don’t ever want to see or hear about her again apart from reading her obituary.
I’d prefer to Superglue it shut, with Industrial strength glue!
i hope minnesotastan is proud to have her represent them.
send her back to somalia her 15minutes of fame are over
So, let’s just compare Israel and Somalia, and the contributions made to ,mankind during the past 4000 years. Where are the Somali Rocket scientists, Masters of Movies and literature, not to mention theology? Where are the Somali 10 commandments that set the stage for half the worlds standards of Justice and morality? Name me one great thinker that has advanced human society to a higher level? No, all we got are social parasites like Omar, who take and consume that, which others have created, and contaminate in attempts of fake Justice the things they touch, that create what she claims as her partners in justice, that turns everything they claim into INJUSTICE.
To this miseducated beyond her ability to comprehend Somali Einstein wanna-be, E=mc2 is defined as a scientific equation that shows that political energy equals the amount of mass media, times the speed of lies squared.
Don’t forget all the piracy.. ALL we seem to get out of somalia is DEATH, depravation and crime..
A firing squad for those enemies of this country like she is is what is needed. Guess Minnesota voters are as brain dead as those from Brooklyn are with their stooge AOC.
To me, those ‘voters’, there SHOULDN’T BE VOTERS, as most are here under “Refugee/asylum status’. THEY ARE NOT US Citizens, ergo shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
why is she still here?
when will she be shipped back to that 3rd world craphole she is so proud of?
leave PAGANS OUT of this, we have NOTHING to do with it or her
Maybe the Jewish Lobby in congress will send in Mossad to “take care of business”..
I’d laugh if they did!
Islamist Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar’s condemnation of leftist Jews as not being “partners in justice” should serve as a warning to Democrats that they will be tolerated by America’s growing Islamist movement only if they promote its anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American policies. Otherwise, those Democrats who fail to support radical Islamist causes will become the targets of Islam’s violent jihad against America just like the rest of us.
I wonder, how long it will be, before she PUSHES for sharia law to rule in congress.
what are we doing exactly? apart from the outrage and embarrassment of seeing our magnificent republic fall apart into a sewer. the new home for sewer rats. we are doing nothing more than we did when obama was insinuated into our body politic like a flesh eating disease. because we didn not stop him we are living in a fascist state. we are living with tyranny., you don’t vote out tyranny. hasn’t that become abundantly clear yet. think of something else.
Sharia Law is exactly what this piece of human garbage Racist would love to see in America !
Enough with this BS you’re elected to do your JOB, not represent “some people” get over yourself! People of America are suffering and it’s people like you that do NOTHING to help America!
So this is what Minnesota is all about. Whatever this one person says is what every citizen in Minnesota is saying – how sad.
Omar claims “injustice” upon her? How? She came to the US as a child under refugee status. How has the US mistreated her? Hamas and its’ Military Wing is listed by the US and 8 other countries as a terrorist organization. Omar equates the US as a similar organization so it would beg the question as to why she would choose to remain in a terrorist country. When she speaks of Israeli “atrocities,” she should list them but Hamas fired 4000+ unguided rockets at Israel-these are similar to the Nazi “buzz bomber” fired into England in WW2-Unguided Missiles that cannot be loaded with a specific target, therefore are “Civilian killers.”
Except for Israel having an effective Iron Dome Missile interception, they could have suffered thousands of lives of innocent civilians.
Then there is the ICC in the Hague for prosecution of crimes against humanity (US not a member).
Omar has no place in a civilized country such as ours and she should be removed from the congress.
AND Since part of WHY SHE got refugee status, was she was FRAUDULENTLY MARRIED TO HER brother, THAT STATUS should be, rescinded IMMEDIATELY!
It’s not Omar’s fault that she grew up being told all these lies by her culture/religion.
It’s entirely Omar’s fault that she didn’t grow out of them. And entirely her constitutents’ fault for putting her and her backward ideas in Congress.
