Minnesota Democrat and exposed anti-semite Rep. Ilhan Omar is once again exposing her bigotry toward the Jewish people and their country.
On Tuesday, Omar sat down for an interview on Yahoo News’ “Through Her Eyes” with Zainab Salbi, and claimed that Israel was not a Democracy like the kind seen in Iran, and suggested that Israel should not be able to exist as a Jewish state.
“How can America work productively towards a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians in your opinion?” asked Salbi.
“Most of the things that have always been aggravating to me is that we have had a policy that makes one superior to the other and we mask it with a conversation that’s about justice and a two-state solution when you have policies that clearly prioritize one over the other,” Omar responded.
Salbi asked her to elaborate, prompting Omar to respond “our relationship, really with the Israeli government and the Israeli state.”
“And so when I see Israel institute law that recognizes it as a Jewish state and does not recognize the other religions that are living in it and we still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East, I almost chuckle because I know that if, you know, we see that in any other society we would criticize it.”
“We would call it out,” Omar continued. “We do that to Iran.”
This is, of course, absurd. Israel makes room for other religions to exist freely within its borders while recognizing that it’s a country of Jewish origin and residence. Meanwhile, she seems to be sympathetic toward Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, much of which makes it a point to kill Jewish people and wipe Israel off the map.
Israel is a true Democracy that welcomes all faiths, which can still be done while recognizing that it is a state created by and for the Jewish people.
None of this should be surprising, however. This is the same Omar who defended the Black Hebrew Israelite hate group that was shouting vile, racist things at the Covington Catholic kids, and consistently proves herself to be a rabid anti-semite, as the Daily Wire highlights:
Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel notes that Omar “came into the House of Representatives with a lot of baggage. She may have committed massive immigration fraud in reportedly marrying her brother. She is accused of committing several campaign finance violations. She cozies up to the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). She engages in conspiratorial anti-Semitism and supports a movement that seeks to eliminate the world’s lone Jewish state. “
