Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5) has been making the rounds in the news for her radical statements and views, like tweeting about how “evil” Israel is.
But now the Freshman Congresswoman is doubling down on her attack of Israel.
And what she just said in an interview with foreign media showed her true colors.
Representative Ilhan Omar has faced backlash over her criticism of Israel as a Muslim woman herself.
She recently had an interview with Yahoo! News where she compared Israel to Iran.
She also said she “chuckles” at the idea of Israel being referred to as a democracy.
Fox News reports:
Embattled congressional freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is facing backlash after comparing Israel to Iran and said she “almost chuckle[s]” when the Jewish state is described as a democracy.
The Democrat, who’s already been criticized both for her loose language and support of American adversaries such as Venezuela, made her controversial remarks during a Yahoo! News interview published on Tuesday.
When asked about how the U.S. can facilitate peace between Israelis and Palestinians, Omar went to criticize the U.S. for not having “an equal approach” in dealing with both sides.
“I mean just our relationship with the Israeli government and the Israeli state. And so when I see Israel institute laws that recognize it as a Jewish state and does not recognize the other religions that are living in it,” she said.
“And we still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East I almost chuckle because I know that if we see that any other society we would criticize it, call it out,” the lawmaker continued. “We do that to Iran, we do that to any other place that sort of upholds its religion. And I see that now happening with Saudi Arabia and so I am aggravated, truly, in those contradictions.”
Ilhan Omar’s latest comments are outrageous.
She clearly exhibits a bias against Israel because of her religious background.
Israel has been one of America’s closest allies for several decades now.
They are regularly harassed by Muslim middle eastern nations.
Radical Democrats are calling to “free Palestine from the river to the sea” and wipe out Israel.
In fact, Iran, to this day, calls for the death to Israel and the entire Jewish state.
They don’t think Israel has a right to exist.
And Democrats have been caught red-handed time and time again siding with the terrorist-supporting nations like Iran.
It was Obama that funded Iran with $150 billion in sanctions relief and turned a cold shoulder on Israel.
The Democrats praised the effort.
