Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) proves time and again she despises Israel, one of the United States greatest allies.
Omar showed her true colors by introducing a pro-BDS movement resolution. Afterward, numerous high-ranking Democrats in the House all but called her an anti-Semite for doing so.
Omar must have mistaken the support her fellow Dems offered her after she was criticized by Donald Trump as some sort of green light to go after Israel again.
So, she introduced a House resolution backing the radical Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel.
This movement, more commonly known as the pro-BDS movement, is not exactly welcomed by most members of our government, including a majority of Democrats. It would more or less end Israel, something that was noted by Rep. Lee Zeldin (D-NY)
As you may recall, Zeldin and Omar have sparred on numerous occasions. Their jousts usually end with Omar accusing Zeldin of being a bigot because he disagrees with her.
Comparing Israel to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union was clearly going too far, even for Omar.
In the eyes of most people, there were no more two despicable governments than that of Nazi Germany and the old Soviet Union. Yet, this is what Omar compared current-day Israel to…

An effort to back the BDS movement is akin to backing Hamas, a terrorist organization that also hates Israel and the Jewish people.
Zeldin did not mince words and called out Omar on this very subject, stating, “Hamas uses women and children as human shields. They declared Jihad as an obligation. They denied humanitarian aid to their own people. They deny human rights, launching rockets from Gaza into Israel, killing innocent civilians.”
This is the group a sitting member of Congress is openly supporting, yet the media just let it slide.
The time has come for our members of Congress to take a deep, hard look at where Omar’s loyalties lie because not a single action she has taken has been to benefit America, the American people, or America’s allies.
