Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar keeps place on Foreign Affairs Committee despite her anti-Semitism

Omar apologized as a means to lighten the pressure from an onslaught of criticisms she didn’t expect, even from her own camp, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on her to apologize. But it is noteworthy that she was not dropped from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar has “suggested that Jewish money was behind American elected officials’ support for Israel,” specifically the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. “Members of the American Jewish community, including from the left, criticized Omar’s comments….as blatantly anti-Semitic.”

Omar is also vehemently against two anti-BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) bills “that are being pushed in Congress,” and has referenced Israel as the “apartheid Israeli regime.”

BDS is intended to delegitimize the Jewish state and erode it economically. Ilhan Omar once stated that: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” When called out publicly for her words, she disingenuously apologized as expected. But she suffered no consequences, which is in itself telling.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
