Here is yet another example of the norming of Jew-hatred by the Democrat Party. Ilhan Omar has accused Israel of “evil doings” in Gaza and called Israel an “apartheid state.” It isn’t surprising that Ilhan Omar would think this way. She is a hijab-wearing, devout Muslim, and Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. What is shameful about this is that her views are mainstream in the Democrat Party today and are now being awarded with a plum appointment to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She should never have been chosen as a candidate for Congress with the hateful views she has, but this is the way the Democrat leadership, and the Democrat base, thinks. That’s why she won. The left wants candidates like Ilhan Omar, as Nancy Pelosi has here demonstrated. This is their base today.
“Rep. Omar Defends Invoking Allah To Combat ‘Evil’ Israel,” by Benny Johnson, Daily Caller, January 17, 2019:
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar defended asking Allah to help the world see how “evil” the actions of the nation of Israel are and how Israel has “hypnotized” the people of the world during a segment on CNN Thursday.
Hosts brought up a tweet the freshman congresswoman posted in 2012: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

“You wrote Israel has ‘hypnotized the world,’” CNN host Poppy Harlow asked Omar. “I wonder what your message is this morning to Jewish-Americans who find that deeply offensive.”
The new representative said that the question was “regrettable” and that she does not know how her comments would be “offensive” to Jewish people.
“That’s really a regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans. My comments precisely are addressing what was happening during the Gaza War,” Omar said.
The Somali-American congressman said she was criticizing the “Israeli regime” for how it was conducting itself.
Moments later in the interview, Omar called for GOP Rep. Steve King to be censured by Congress for “racism and bigotry” over controversial remarks made to the New York Times recently….
