Plenty has already been written about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s antisemitic tweets. But what was the reaction in her home state of Minnesota?
One standout piece in the local media appeared courtesy of the Minnesota Star Tribune, where Ahmed Tharwat — described as the host/producer of the Arab American TV show BelAhdan — said some very disturbing things in defense of Omar.
According to Tharwat:
In the end, Omar caved in, surrendering to the intimidation of a system that demonizes any critic of Israel, a system full of hypes, hypocrisies and dishonesties.
