Ilhan Omar defends comments comparing Israel, US to Hamas, Taliban

CNN’s Jake Tapper called out Omar’s original tweet, which drew criticism from members of Congress, asking if she regretted sharing it with the public.

Rep. Ilhan Omar  defended her statements comparing Israel and the United States to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Taliban, in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Following the 11-day escalation in May between Israel and allied terror groups in the Gaza Strip, Omar attempted to draw comparisons between the war in Afghanistan and the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stating atrocities have been committed by all sides and each should be held accountable for their “crimes against humanity.”
Tapper called out Omar’s original tweet, which drew criticism from members of Congress, asking if she regretted sharing it with the public.
“I don’t,” Omar replied on Tuesday. “I think it’s really important to think back to the point that I was trying to make. Obviously, I was addressing Secretary of State [Antony] Blinken.”

Tapper then questioned whether Omar understood why these comments and her track record of anti-Israel rhetoric could be seen as antisemitic by her fellow Jewish congressional members, onto whom she then shifted the blame.
“I’ve welcomed any time my colleagues asked to have a conversation to learn from them [and] for them to learn from me,” replied Omar. “I think it’s really important for these members to realize that they haven’t been partners in justice.
“They haven’t been engaging in seeking justice around the world and I think I will continue to do that,” she said. “It is important for me as someone who knows what it feels like to experience injustice in ways that many of my colleagues don’t.”
