She is a dangerous anti-Semite. To make matters even worse is that the Jewish Democratic Council of America is too gutless to endorse her primary opponent. Antone Melton-Meaux is a friend to Israel and to American Jews. Yet the JDCA will still not endorse him. Shame on them.
Pro-Israel Jewish Americans should not give the JDCA any of their money. In fact, no Jewish American should support the Democrat Party in any way. Rest assured that the corrupt MSM will give Omar a pass for her latest act of vile Jew-hatred.
This is disgusting. @USJewishDems will do nothing. They'll continue to implicitly support @Ilhan by not endorsing her serious primary challenger. They won't demand that Pelosi and other major Democrats pull support & condemn @IlhanMN. #Feckless @HalieSoifer call your office! https://t.co/z5p6Wi0bQJ

.@IlhanMN you promised to learn about “the painful history of antisemitic tropes.” When you say that your political opponent is in the pocket of "Wall Street" and then only list Jewish donors, you have once again crossed the line. Why is this so difficult?https://t.co/oTDvoqoXZY

Rep. Ilhan Omar Comes Under Fire for Mailer That Names 3 Donors to Her Challenger, All Jewish
By Jewish Journal, July 23, 2020
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Rep. Ilhan Omar has come under fire for a campaign mailer that names three donors to her Democratic primary opponent, and they are all Jewish.
“Can We Trust Antone Melton-Meaux’s Money?” said the mailer obtained by Vice News, which posted a story on Thursday.
The flyer features quotes that have appeared in national media from people outside the Minnesota congressional district who are giving to Melton-Meaux, Omar’s challenger in the Democratic primary on Aug. 11. It also cites others.
Among those mentioned are billionaires Seth Klarman, a hedge fund executive, and Jonathan Gray, president of the Blackstone Group private equity firm. Those quoted include Stanley Weinstein, a retired real estate executive from Miami Beach, and someone named Michael of Scarsdale, New York, also likely Jewish.
Rabbi Avi Olitzky of St. Louis Park, a Minneapolis suburb, who has defended Omar against previous claims that she is anti-Semitic, told Vice News he was “beyond dismayed.”
“Most disappointing were the presence of tropes that we’d personally discussed as hurtful, as offensive, and that I received a commitment not only would it not happen again but education would take place to learn more as to why it’s a problem,” said Olitzky, who had met with Omar last year after she was criticized for a number of statements in which she imputed undue influence to pro-Israel groups. She apologized for some but not all of her remarks.
Omar is leading in the only known poll by double digits, but Melton-Meaux has outraised the incumbent: $3.2 million to less than $500,000 in the last quarter. The challenger, a lawyer, is drawing support from pro-Israel donors. Omar is one of two representatives in Congress who back the boycott Israel movement; the other is Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.
