Ilhan Omar singles out those ‘evil’ Jews who owe allegiance to a foreign power

Anorak Tuesday, 12 February 2019 ()
Ilhan Omar singles out those ‘evil’ Jews who owe allegiance to a foreign powerIlhan Omar has done her bit to prove that the far Rights doesn’t have monopoly on antisemitism. Omar, one of just two Muslim women in the US Congress and a Somali refugee, posited the considered and not in the least bit racist views that support for Israel among her fellow politicians was fueled by money from a pro-Israel lobby group.

Ms Omar represents the state of Minnesota. But, as with so many on the Left, her thoughts are dominated by Jews. She tweeted: “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” That’s a reference to $100 bills, which feature an image of Benjamin Franklin (not a Jew). A kind heart on Twitter asked her who she thought was behind US politicians’s support of Israel.

Ms Omar was quick to the punch. “AIPAC!,” she exclaimed, a reference to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat speaker of the House, express an opinion: “Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologise for these hurtful comments,”

The speaker added that she had spoken personally to the congresswoman and they had “agreed that we must use this moment to move forward as we reject anti-Semitism in all forms”.

Omar is on a journey – a middle-aged woman elected to represent people claims ignorance as defence

Mrs Pelosi, the top ranking Democrat, made her intervention less than 24 hours after Ms Omar’s comments, as she tried to contain the controversy.

Eliot Engel, Democrat chairman of the House foreign affairs committee, called it “shocking to hear a member of Congress invoke the anti-Semitic trope of ‘Jewish money.'”

Ms Omar, 37, instantly resigned. No. Of course not. She muttered: “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”

Not as a whole.

Adding: “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologise.”

It’s not her. It’s you. The sympathetic backstory; the call look to yourself; the non-denial detail. It’s all there in a few mealy-mouthed words.

And that’s the same Omar who backs the censorious BDS movement. Omar who said Israel “has hypnotised the world”, and that Israel was “evil”. Those comments were made in 2012. They did not stop her becoming an elected representative. Why? Because to most people, Jew hatred doesn’t. matter.
