Republicans Introduce Measure to Censure the ‘Squad’ After Rep. Omar’s Israel Comments
House Republicans are demanding radical Rep. Ilhan Omar and her close allies be held accountable for helping spur anti-Semitic violence in the U.S. Last week, Rep. Ilhan Omar received a slap on the wrist after making comments equating the United States and Israel to dangerous terror organizations like Hamas and the Taliban.
House Republicans have just introduced a resolution to censure Rep. Omar and other radical “Squad” members Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.
Fox News reports:
Leading the way are Reps. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., Jim Banks, R-Ind., and Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., who are introducing a resolution to censure Omar, D-Minn., and her three closest allies in the “Squad.” The resolution alleges that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Omar have said things that “publicly support the actions of a recognized terrorist organization.”
The resolution also says “Omar accused the United States of backing crimes against humanity,” notes that “Ocasio-Cortez accused the Government of Israel of committing ”human rights abuses,’ says “Tlaib accused the Government of Israel of ‘ethnic cleansing’ against Palestinians,” and accuses Pressley of equating support of Israel to “supporting oppression, violence, and apartheid.”
“We cannot turn a blind eye to Members of Congress openly defending terrorist attacks by Hamas against our close ally Israel nor their dangerous rhetoric which has contributed to anti-Semitic attacks across the country,” Waltz said in a statement.
“I’ve seen firsthand gross atrocities against women and ethnic minorities at the hands of the Taliban. I’ve personally been fired upon by terrorists hiding behind women and children and seen the Taliban place suicide vests on teenagers,” Waltz, who is a former Green Beret, added. “For members of the U.S. Congress to make equivalencies to Israel and the American military, which puts its own soldiers at risk to avoid civilian casualties, is ignorant of the facts, shameful, and should be condemned in the strongest terms.”
The resolution stands little chance of passing and wouldn’t carry any official consequences, however, would make it clear that Congress condemns Omar’s statements. Last week, Omar issued a clarification on her comparison of the U.S. to terror organizations and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems to wants to put the issue to bed.
