Nadler Joins Some Dems In Condemning 'Anti-Semitic Tropes' In Omar's Tweet”

The American Jewish Committee promptly responded to Omar, also on Twitter, positing that: "Suggesting that a Jewish organization is buying off American politicians is both demonstrably false and stunningly anti-Semitic".

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, reportedly retweeted then deleted a Twitter post that accused her of anti-Semitism after she was called out from both sides of the aisle for tweeting that the US relationship with Israel is "all about the Benjamins, baby".

Shapiro said he and others "remained uncomfortably quiet after her [boycott, divestment, sanctions] BDS flip-flop &other offensive remarks because we were aware of efforts to work with her: by colleagues, party leaders, her local Jewish community in MN".

Fox News reached out to Omar's office early Monday and did not get an immediate response.

Asked by Forward opinion-editor Batya Ungar-Sargon who is "paying American politicians to be pro-Israel", Omar replied, "AIPAC!". "Bad form, Congresswoman. That's the second anti-Semitic trope you've tweeted". "So that means she's supportive of these actions" by Omar.

AIPAC's own website explains how its Congressional Club members must "Make a minimum financial commitment of $2,500 a year, or $5,000 per two-year election cycle, to pro-Israel politics", and commit to "giving political contributions in a clearly pro-Israel context to candidates running for the United States House of Representatives and/or United States Senate". "This is anti-Semitic", Daily Wire journalist Kassy Dillon wrote. Last month, she acknowledged that she "unknowingly" used an anti-Semitic trope after a 2012 tweet surfaced in which she said, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel". She's made herself a lightning rod. "The Congresswoman's statements do not live up to that do not live up to that cherished ideal", Rose said.

Even Chelsea Clinton accused Omar of anti-Semitism.

He went on to emphasize in a further tweet that now she will have no influence in her party on the issue, but that it could have been different "Had she come to DC, shown sympathy and empathy for Israelis and Palestinians, learned to assign responsibility in appropriate measure to both sides, considered the totality of U.S. interests in the region, maybe taken a trip to learn".

"I know Congresswoman Omar, I don't believe that she would harbor those sorts of views as they've been characterized", he continued.
