Rep. Omar has a long history of anti-semitic comments and actions. Now, she is scheduled to speak on Feb. 23 with Yousef Abdallah, a senior official of Islamic Relief Fund USA who is also hosting the event.
Abdallah has openly shared of “beautiful stories” of martyrs providing guns to kill Jews and has numerous Facebook posts that call Jews “stinking”, calling for them to be lit on fire, and even asks God to “revenge on the damned rapist” Jews.
Rep. Omar’s commitment to this event comes shortly after she falsely tweeted that elected officials are Pro-Israel because The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is paying them. Just before that, she retweeted a tweet that indicted she is calling Jews hooked nose, thus endorsing the notion.
Rep. Omar has been condemned by some of her democratic colleagues, including Rep. Max Rose (D- NY) who said in a statement “our leaders should not be invoking hurtful stereotypes and caricatures of Jewish people to dismiss those who support Israel.”Sam Westrop, director of the Middle East Forum’s Islamist Watch, told the Daily Wire that Rep. Omar’s involvement with this event and Abdallah will “pose some deeply troubling questions for her Jewish constituents and Jewish Democratic Party members everywhere.
