Omar is a despicable hater, and Newsweek gives her the cover — of all the people in all the world. Why? Because she is a front for their Jew-hatred — if they norm her, they norm Jew-hatred and the genocide of the Jewish people. And who do they have speak for her? Terror-tied CAIR, never mentioning that CAIR was founded by members of the Islamic Association for Palestine, which was shut down as a Hamas front group, or that CAIR was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation’s largest terror funding trial, the Holy Land Foundation trial, an Islamic “charity” that was funneling money to Hamas. Nor do they mention the many terror convictions of CAIR officials.
When people wonder how Hitler, the SS, the SA, the Brownshirts, etc. succeeded — and got elected — this is your answer.
“Rep. Omar Featured on Newsweek Cover: ‘Changing the Conversation on Israel,’” by Aaron Bandler, Jewish Journal, April 9, 2019 (thanks to Mark):
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is being featured on the cover of Newsweek’s April 19 issue, with the story talking about how she is “changing the conversation about Israel.”
The Newsweek story, which was published online on April 9, states that Omar was frequently targeted by Republicans in speeches during the AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs) conference in March for “using language easily regarded as anti-Semitic.” The article refers to AIPAC has having a “formidable political operation” that has promulgated “a decidedly unequal view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
The article goes on to describe Omar “as the most voluble—and visible—of Israel’s critics.”
“She appears to embrace the role of a political provocateur, particularly when it comes to foreign policy,” the article states. “Omar articulates a view that is rarely heard from a sitting member of Congress, one that has been forged from her first-hand experiences of war and exile.”
Among those coming to Omar’s defense in the piece are Nihad Awad, the executive director of Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), stating that Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) are “not trying to fit into the historical Washington mindset, which has been unjustly pro-Israel for decades. And they represent a whole new generation of progressive activists nationwide.”
Some Democrats are concerned about Omar, as the Newsweek article notes that the Democratic Majority for Israel was recently formed by veteran Democrats to support pro-Israel Democrats in response to concerns “that the influence of Omar and other progressives will erode support for Israel within the Democratic Party.”
The Newsweek article touts “Omar and her progressive supporters” as “the first credible challenge to” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policies and the “occupation of the West Bank.”
“Their successful effort to produce a resolution that condemns all forms of bigotry, instead of only Omar and anti-Semitism, was no small accomplishment, given the strength of Israel’s supporters among Democrats,” the article states, referencing the March resolution condemning various forms of bigotry….
