Rep. Omar said the U.S. should reconsider giving aid to Israel in a movement that challenges the established a 10-year spending commitment, the reports from the Obama administration, John Roberts.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is not happy to blame that a top house Democrat, appeared together with President Trump, the dissemination of anti-Semitic messages.

In a series of tweets Friday, the Congressman called it “sickening to watch people false equivalences between the open bigotry and hatred of this President and the Progressive.”

Omar’s comments came a day after the house-judiciary-Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, called on members of both parties – including trump, Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and suggested they have promoted the anti-Semitic language.


“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repulsive,” Nadler tweeted. “@realdonaldtrump the comments about infidelity are a malicious and dangerous anti-Semitic trope. Carlos Latuff-cartoon redirected from @RepRashida and @Ilhan, can be sure to read for his heinous underlying message.”

Nadler was referring to Omar and Tlaib recently, the publication of a cartoon on your Instagram stories which do the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu silencing Tlaib by covering her mouth, and Trump the same to Omar.

In a tweet on Friday, Omar argued that he had talked about the “rise in anti-Semitic violence” and said she defended, “all religious minorities — at every turn.” In relation to the past, the accusations of anti-Semitic remarks, she said she is also engaged in the “accounting for and learning from my own mistakes to be a better ally.”


“But now is not the time for false equivalences is not,” Omar said. “Our President is an attack on the fundamental values of religious pluralism. Either you are serious about the protection of religious minorities of all stripes, or you are not serious about all of them.”

Tlaib and Omar, the impose already in the news about Israel’s decision to significant limitations on their planned visit, held a press conference Monday in protest. Omar and Tlaib has been an outspoken critic of the Israeli policy and its support for a boycott of the country. They were also known for their anti-Trump activism.
