Ilhan Omar Quacks Like a Duck

Some people say Jews are too paranoid about anti-Semitism, but given the history, can you blame them? Should they remain silent while the Democratic Party is taken over by “progressive” Jew-haters?

A dozen Jewish Democrat House members are calling out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her comparison of the United States and Israel to Hamas terrorists.
Rep. Brad Schneider (D-IL) led the coalition that includes Reps. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Lois Frankel (D-FL), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Kathy Manning (D-NC), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Dean Phillips (D-MN), Kim Schrier (D-WA), Brad Sherman (D-CA), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and issued the following statement:

Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided. Ignoring the differences between democracies governed by the rule of law and contemptible organizations that engage in terrorism at best discredits one’s intended argument and at worst reflects deep-seated prejudice.
The United States and Israel are imperfect and, like all democracies, at times deserving of critique, but false equivalencies give cover to terrorist groups. We urge Congresswoman Omar to clarify her words placing the U.S. and Israel in the same category as Hamas and the Taliban.

Omar made the remarks while questioning Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a hearing and expanded on them on Twitter Monday . . .

This is a problem caused by our immigration policy. Beginning in the 1990s, America took in many thousands of refugees from Somalia, and guess what they brought with them? The same evil culture of hatred that had turned their country into one of the worst Third World hellholes.

If you had told me 30 years ago that Minnesota would elect to Congress someone like Ilhan Omar, I would have thought you were crazy. Her presence in Congress is not only a stain on the reputation of Minnesota, but also on the Democratic Party in general. How can it be that, in a congressional district of more than 700,000 people, Democrats could not find any decent, intelligent person to nominate to Congress?

But how many congressional districts could we say the same about? Certainly the 14th District of New York comes to mind:

Wait a minute, you dimwit: Who is vilifying whom here?

Who is putting whom in danger?

Oh, that would be Ilhan Omar, vilifying Israel and putting Israeli lives in danger from her Jew-hating Hama terrorist allies. Democrats are on the wrong side of Genesis 12:3, and ought to fear God’s wrath.
