But its the “Jewish lobby” that is the problem. That’s her jihad. And of course — what else could it be? Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the Quran. Ilhan Omar claims here that she doesn’t hate Jews and is merely a critic of Israel, but make no mistake: if the Jewish state is further demonized and ultimately destroyed, millions of Jews will be murdered. And the BDS movement, which she supports, is openly pushing for the Nazi tactic of boycotting Jewish businesses. She is excited about emulating the Nazis.
“Omar Received Tens of Thousands of Dollars from PACs and Lobbyists,” by Lori Lowenthal Marcus, SaraCarter.com, February 13, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
Arlington, VA/USA – January 10, 2019: Rep. Ilhane [sic] Omar (D-MN) speaking at the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), congressional reception for newly elected Congressional representatives
Look away for a few minutes and you miss the latest jabs. In one corner is Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, spouting and repeating anti-Semitic and anti-Israel smears. In another corner are old-guard Democrats whose younger party members are proudly waving around their anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bona fides, potentially hurting the party with historically stalwart supporters.
In still another corner there are Omar’s supporters. They claim Omar is the victim of racism, sexism and whatever-other-isms are available. Many of Omar’s supporters demand to know why she should be forced to apologize for saying wealthy Jews use their influence to bribe congressional members.
In the final corner are the Republicans, gleeful that someone else is finally on the hot seat, accused of spouting bigotry in public.
HOUSE LEADERSHIP DEMANDS APOLOGY FROM OMAR FOR ANTISEMITISM
On Monday afternoon the Democratic House leadership called out Omar for writing that the American Public Affairs Committee uses its “Benjamins” (i.e. hundred dollar bills) to coerce members to support Israel. AIPAC is not actually a PAC at all, so it doesn’t donate any money directly to candidates; and much of the money its biggest supporters donate goes to Democrats.
In the public reprimand issued by Democratic House leadership, Omar was instructed to “immediately apologize” for stepping beyond the bounds of legitimate criticism and descending into “anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations” about congressional supporters of Israel.
OMAR RECEIVED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FROM PACS AND ALSO FROM LOBBYISTS
One PAC from which Omar received thousands of dollars in 2018 is the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2009 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.
And CAIR not only has a PAC, it is a lobbying organization. On Jan.10, CAIR hosted the Community Congressional Reception at which Omar spoke.
In all, Omar received tens of thousands of dollars from lobbying groups. None of her money came from AIPAC or the NRA or the fossil fuel industry; That must be a coincidence.
