    Freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar accused of sending 'anti-Semitic' tweets

    Freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress last fall — is accused of sending a string of "anti-Semitic" tweets regarding the Israeli lobby in the U.S.

    Omar, a proponent of the BDS — Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions — movement aimed at putting economic and political pressure on Israel over its treatment of Palestinians, first tweeted Sunday night that money was driving U.S. politicians to defend Israel.

    Omar, a Somalian refugee, came under fire from some Democrats.

    BTW, this is the person that replaced Keith Ellison (first Muslim Congressperson).

    Statements aren't good enough, if Pelosi really had concerns, she'd kick this Jew hater off the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    Not good enough. She needs to be removed from the foreign relations committee and censured. When she does it again...and she will...she needs to be expelled from the house.

    "As Americans and Jews, we expect our politicians to condemn bigotry, not to fuel it. Words matter. At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise in the U.S. and abroad, Rep. Omar is promoting the ugly, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Jews have an outsized influence over politics," Jonathan A. Greenblatt, CEO and national director of the ADL, said in a written statement.​
