A group of Jewish organizations has just released a notice calling for the removal of Freshman Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Omar sparked rage within the Jewish community due to a slew of anti-semitic tweets. Omar has only been an acting member of Congress for two months but has managed to make a name for herself for frequent twitter tirades.
The Millennial darling has on different occasions alleged that the US-Israel relationship is “all about the Benjamins” and that “Israel has hypnotized the world”, among other incendiary statements.
Ilhan Omar’s infractions went beyond anti-Semitic tweets, appearing as a keynote speaker before Islamic Relief USA. Islamic Relief USA has ties to anti-Israel terrorist organizations. Omar’s position as a member of a committee that plays an important role in the US-Israel relationship is making Jewish groups understandably angry.
The coalition of Jewish organization’s petition stated that “in light of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s recent anti-Semitic tweets, statements, and address before Islamic Relief USA […] we, the undersigned organizations, request that you immediately remove her as a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”
In her short career, Omar has racked up a long list of offenses. The letter accompanying the petition declared that her actions reflect “poor judgment and shows she is unfit to sit on one of the most important committees in the United States Congress.”
