The time has come to demote Representative Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“During the campaign, Rep. Ilhan Omar was identified as having a proclivity for making antisemitic remarks refusing to condemn terror groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas.” When Rep. Omar was elected to the House of Representatives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed her to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which is crucial in guiding America’s foreign policy. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s antisemitism has persisted and even escalated since taking office. She blamed Jewish money for America’s pro-Israel foreign policy and used Benjamin’s Baby as an anti-Semitic trope aimed at Jared Kushner.”
However, after intensifying its attacks on Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has been accused of Islamophobia and incitement.
