This is why American cities our now dangerous for Jews. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer refuse to take any disciplinary action against the Squad for their overt and vile anti-Semitism. And then they condemn AIPAC when they (finally) launch an attack ad against a Squad member. Naturally, Rep. Tlaib and Rep. Pocan accused AIPAC of Islamophobia for launching the ad.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide anymore.
Who sides with the Nazis?
Who throws the beleaguered Jew under the bus?
Democrat party is evil.
Jewish Americans will need to make a choice: they can either abandon the Democrat Party and fight the hideous Left with everything they have, or they can continue to support the Democrat Party and be relegated to second-class status.
And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
Nancy Pelosi calls out AIPAC over ‘deeply cynical’ and ‘inflammatory’ ad attacking Ilhan Omar
By Insider, May 20, 2021
- Pelosi and Hoyer defended Omar against an ad attacking her over criticism of Israel.
- “It’s very disappointing to see deeply cynical and inflammatory ads twisting her words,” Pelosi said.
- There’s a growing rift in the Democratic party over US-Israeli relations.
Top Democratic leaders in Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on Wednesday criticized the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) over an ad associating Rep. Ilhan Omar with Hamas.
“I don’t agree with Congresswoman Omar’s comments, but it’s very disappointing to see deeply cynical and inflammatory ads twisting her words,” Pelosi said in comments to reporters.
“As we always respect Israel’s right to defend herself, there must be a serious effort on the part of both parties in the conflict to end the violence and respect the rights of both the Israeli and Palestinian people,” Pelosi added.
The AIPAC ad was in response to a recent tweet from Omar in which she said, “Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid.”
Distorting Omar’s words while superimposing her image over Hamas rocket fire, the AIPAC ad said, “When Israel targets Hamas, Rep. Omar calls it an act of terrorism.”
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer was also critical of AIPAC’s move.
“I disagree with the statements made by the members, but attacking them in ads does not advance the goal of increasing support for Israel,” Hoyer said. “AIPAC ought to be making the case to the American people not only for Israel’s right to protect the lives of its citizens, but why they have a moral responsibility to do so and its value as our ally and national security partner.”
Progressive Democrats like Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin also defended Omar, who is Muslim, accusing AIPAC of Islamophobia.
Too bad @AIPAC fans the flames of Islamophobia, rather than peace, with deceitful graphics and rhetoric like this. If only they supported Israelis and Palestinians like @IlhanMN. They could learn from her. pic.twitter.com/Y6LEh0BxXa

Shame on @AIPAC. To launch such a blatantly Islamophobic attack on @Ilhan right now is reprehensible. I stand with her to oppose the violence Israel's apartheid government is perpetrating. You will not silence those who stand for human rights. pic.twitter.com/PoNnJLIO9r

The willingness of top Democrats to criticize AIPAC, which is extremely influential in Washington, DC, is indicative of the growing schism in the party regarding US-Israeli relations.
In 2019, Omar sent tweets about Israel and AIPAC that led to widespread allegations of anti-Semitism as well as public criticism from Democratic leaders — including Pelosi and Hoyer. Omar at the time suggested that support for Israel among Republican members of Congress was motivated by money, and subsequently suggested AIPAC, a pro-Israel lobbying group, was paying US politicians to support Israel.
Omar subsequently apologized, saying, “Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes … This is why I unequivocally apologize.”
