Ilhan Omar is a 37-year-old Somali-American from the most heavily Islamic extremist recruiting area in all of America.
Prior to her election, Omar traveled to South America with an anti-American socialist organization.
Many believe that it was due to her anti-American, anti-Semitic and radical Islamic beliefs that got her elected to the US House.
Knowing Omar’s strong anti-Semitic views, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appointed Omar to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
After Omar continues to post anti-Semitic statements, a number of Jewish groups are demanding that Omar be removed from the committee because of her strong anti-Semitic comments.
The Washington Free Beacon – Exclusive: Leading Jewish Groups Demand Anti-Semitic Omar Be Removed From Foreign Affairs Committee – Jewish groups slam Omar’s anti-Semitic language, ties to groups advocating terrorism – A group of leading Jewish organizations petitioned the House of Representative’s top Democrats on Monday, demanding that Rep. Ilan Omar (D., Minn.) be removed from her position on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee in light of her numerous anti-Semitic remarks and ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Jewish people, according to a copy of a letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Omar, who has been singled out multiple times in her short career on Congress due to several anti-Semitic comments, continued to double down on her belief that pro-Israel members of Congress are more loyal to Israel than America on Sunday.
In yet another tweet alleging that those who support Israel are not loyal to America—an age old anti-Semitic canard that has earned Omar rebukes from Democrats and Republicans—Omar made clear she will not support the historic U.S.-Israel as a member of Congress.
Omar’s continued use of anti-Semitic smears has now led a group of leading Jewish organizations to take action. They sent a letter early Monday to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Elliot Engel asking them to immediately strip Omar of her seat on the committee, which plays a key role in supporting the U.S-Israel military alliance…
Placing Omar on the House Foreign Affairs Committee is like placing a habitual pedophile on the staff of a daycare center.
Placing Omar on the House Foreign Affairs Committee is like placing a known enemy agent on the intelligence Committee.
I agree with the Jewish organizations that Omar should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
However, I go a step further by saying that her anti-American activities should also warrant her removal from the US House.
