Muslim Congresswoman Omar ACCUSING Pro Israel Americans Of Being Against The United States! (VIDEO)
There are two words that some in Congress are confusing the meanings of. Those happen to be friendship and allegiance.
Friendship is what we have with countries like Israel where if someone messes with them we are going to make sure that those people regret ever deciding to do it.
Allegiance is to put our interests aside and make sure that Israel is taken care of before people in the United States or spending more on to help the people of Israel than our own.
People confuse these words because they want to confuse people into thinking the wrong thing.
It’s the reason why Ilhan Omar keeps spouting off about Israel every chance that she can get despite even the most liberal in Congress telling her that it would be a pretty good idea if she shut up.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is being accused of antisemitism again after accusing pro-Israel Americans of “allegiance to a foreign country” at an event on Wednesday evening in Washington, DC.
Laura Kelly, reported at the Jewish Insider that Omar told an audience of supporters at the Busboys and Poets café: “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” meaning Israel.
Omar’s remark appears at 4:08 in the video below:
The idea that Americans who support Israel owe “allegiance” to Israel, or are guilty of dual loyalty, is a familiar antisemitic theme — and has been roundly condemned as such in the past.
(Ironically, Omar once referred to Somalia as “our country” in blaming U.S. foreign policy for terrorism in 2013.)
Omar was seated at the event next to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who made a similar comment earlier this year when she said that members of the U.S. Senate who supported a pro-Israel bill “forgot what country they represent.” Her remark drew complaints from Jewish organizations, including the nonpartisan American Jewish Committee.
At the café on Thursday, Omar also accused her Jewish colleagues of Islamophobia, saying that she feared they would interpret every criticism she and Tlaib made about Israel as antisemitism, “because we are Muslim.”
Jonathan Chait, a liberal writer who has been skeptical of accusations of antisemitism against Democrats in the past — he defended Obama from such claims during the debate over the Iran deal, for example — wrote Thursday that Omar’s latest remarks were “much worse” than her false accusation earlier this month that a pro-Israel group paid off members of Congress.
