Ilhan Omar is being condemned yet again for her anti-Semitimic remarks about her Jewish Congressional colleagues. While on CNN the radical progressive representative expressed zero remorse for her recent remarks comparing Israel to terrorist organizations like the Taliban and Hamas. Despite the immediate outcry from Democrat colleagues and being pushed to “clarify” her remarks Rep. Omar only got a slap on the wrist.
According to Fox News:
In a CNN interview on Tuesday, Omar said she does not regret her tweet from earlier this month in which she lumped Israel, the U.S., Hamas, and the Taliban together. When asked if she knows why fellow Democrats – particularly Jews – found previous comments of hers about Israel to be anti-Semitic, Omar accused them of not being “partners in justice” while claiming that she herself “knows what it feels like to experience injustice in ways that many of my colleagues don’t.”
Rightfully, critics immediately called Omar out for her statement and called for her to be censured.
Asra Nomani, vice president of Parents Defending Education and co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement harshly condemned Omar.
This is what a modern day Muslim Supremacist looks like. Ilhan Omar speaks to @jaketapper + rebukes Jewish Democratic colleagues for failing to be “partners in injustice.” Her wound is bigger than their wound—a wound collector in the Oppression Olympics. pic.twitter.com/IaPPJ1LqFU

Avi Mayer, who is Jewish, slammed the radical Rep’s anti-Jewish remarks.
Omar's comments draw on classic antisemitic themes about Jewish clannishness, the notion that Jews only look out for themselves.
They're also plainly false.
Jewish lawmakers have been on the front lines, fighting for human rights in America and globally.https://t.co/FEJmwu1JeT

The Republican Jewish Coalition called on their Democratic counterparts to “join us in calling out” Omar.
Jay Sekulow, attorney for former President Donald Trump, similarly said that Omar “is past due to be censured & removed from committees,” calling her “a repeat offender for antisemitic rhetoric.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar is a repeat offender for antisemitic rhetoric & is past due to be censured & removed from committees.
Recently she went as far as comparing the U.S. & Israel to the Taliban & Hamas terrorists. Fight back against antisemitism – sign. https://t.co/1oGpimh73y
