Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar may have escaped being held accountable for her repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes by her own Democratic Party, but that doesn’t mean she is completely off the hook for her hateful rhetoric just yet.
The leader of a pro-Israel evangelical Christian organization has demanded the outspoken Muslim congresswoman face retribution for her remarks, and even used Omar’s own words against her in a fiery statement of condemnation.
Called Out over Anti-Semitism
The Jerusalem Post reported that Laurie Cardoza-Moore, head of the non-profit group Proclaiming Justice to The Nations, spoke out against the congresswoman once again following the sudden decision over the weekend by Fox News to temporarily suspend popular Saturday host Judge Jeanine Pirro for comments she had made in regard to Omar the week prior.
Cardoza-Moore has already spoken out against Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic behavior in the recent past, and she has also been pushing a petition — with tens of thousands of signatures thus far — demanding Omar’s expulsion from Congress.
On top of that, Cardoza-Moore has also sent letters to both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Attorney General William Barr requesting investigations into Omar’s potential fundraising ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamist political and social front with ties to known terrorist organizations.
In this most recent statement against Omar, Cardoza-Moore said: “Americans will not tolerate antisemitism, whether delivered from a Christian Nationalist, a member of the KKK or an Islamist. Ilhan Omar is waging an unholy war to sanitize antisemitism and we the people will not tolerate her veiled antisemitic threats.”
She went on:
It is our mission to stand-up and defend the Jewish people and Israel against the rise of global antisemitism, no matter where it comes from.
“Omar may have hypnotized some members of Congress,” Cardoza-Moore said in reference to a 2012 tweet from Omar, “but American patriots will not tolerate her attempts to normalize antisemitism.”
Referring to Israeli military operations against Hamas terrorists in Gaza, Omar wrote in 2012: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
As it turns out, God may very well have awakened the world — or at least much of the United States — to the “evil doings” of anti-Semites in America.
The Democratic Party and their media allies may want to continue to turn a blind eye to Omar’s blatantly transparent anti-Semitism.
But if there continues to be significant pressure on that front from Cardoza-Moore’s group and others like it, the Democrats and media may not be able to ignore Omar much longer.
