Dem Rep Defends Omar’s Tweets: ‘I Wouldn’t Take It as Anti-Semitism’

Dem Rep Defends Omar’s Tweets: ‘I Wouldn’t Take It as Anti-Semitism’

Fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Max Rose of NY called the comments "deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself", according to Politico.

Omar doubled down on her notion that Jews pay lawmakers to be pro-Israel and tweeted that "AIPAC" is an example.

The first anti-Semitic trope Ungar-Sargon referred to was when Omar said in 2012 that "Israel has hypnotized the world".

"At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise in the US and overseas, Rep. Omar is promoting the ugly, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Jews have an outsized influence over politics", Jonathan A. Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of ADL, said in a written statement.

Omar on Sunday responded on Twitter to a threat two days earlier by Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to take action against her because of her past statements on Israel by saying, "It's all about the Benjamins baby", a reference to $100 bill featuring Benjamin Franklin.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leads a group of top Democrats calling on Omar to apologize. I will make the case to Members on both side of the aisle that our alliance and friendship with Israel are important to our countries' shared interests, security, and values.

When asked about his colleague Rep. Max Rose (D., N.Y.) calling out Omar's tweets as "hateful and offensive", Kildee said people generally should tamp down the rhetoric in today's political discourse.

"She's talking about the influence of Israel and this immediately gets twisted into antisemitism", one man wrote in comments retweeted by Omar. There should be NO home in U.S. politics, college campuses, or halls of Congress for ANY of this garbage.

Omar's Sunday tweet was not her first anti-semitic display.

"It is deeply disappointing and disturbing to hear Representative Ilhan Omar's (MN) choice of words in her exchange with a journalist yesterday, wherein she appears to traffic in old anti-Semitic tropes about Jews and money", Nadler said in a statement.

Omar sidetracked the conversation, ignoring the direct criticism for her antisemitic remarks.

In response, Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin slammed Tlaib and Omar's open support for the BDS movement, urging his colleagues to "to reject the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred that we are starting to see infiltrating American politics and even the halls of Congress".

"We ought to be careful not to construe in that anything other than a concern about the fact that money has undue influence on political decision making", Kildee said.

She was subsequently criticized by prominent public figures including Chelsea Clinton.
