Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just can’t stay out of trouble these days.
Long before she won election to Congress, Omar had a notorious reputation for being an anti-Semite.
In 2012, Omar tweeted out a message of hate that she refuses to apologize for to this day.
“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) November 16, 2012
Today, she’s doubling-down on her original anti-Semitic message, which is even more disturbing now that she’s a sitting member of Congress.
From The Daily Wire:
Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggested in an interview this week that Israel should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state, Israel is not a democracy, and compared Israel to Iran — which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
Omar made the shocking remarks during a Tuesday interview on Yahoo News’ “Through Her Eyes” with Zainab Salbi. …
Here’s part of the transcript:
SALBI: “I want to talk about Israel because it has been a point of contention. How can America work productively towards a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians in your opinion?”
OMAR: “Most of the things that have always been aggravating to me is that we have had a policy that makes one superior to the other and we mask it with a conversation that’s about justice and a two-state solution when you have policies that clearly prioritize one over the other.”
When asked for any examples of what she was talking about, Omar responded: “Our relationship, really with the Israeli government and the Israeli state.”
OMAR: “And so when I see Israel institute, um, law that recognizes it as a Jewish state and does not recognize, um, the other religions that are living in it and we still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East, I almost chuckle because I know that if, you know, we, we, we, we see that in any other society we would criticize it. We would call it out. We do that to Iran.”

There’s more, from The Daily Wire:
Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel notes that Omar “came into the House of Representatives with a lot of baggage. She may have committed massive immigration fraud in reportedly marrying her brother. She is accused of committing several campaign finance violations. She cozies up to the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). She engages in conspiratorial anti-Semitism and supports a movement that seeks to eliminate the world’s lone Jewish state. “
Schachtel adds that “on an almost daily basis, Omar has revealed disturbing biases and appears to be unable to separate friends from foes or free states from totalitarian dictatorships. Putting aside her smearing of the Covington Catholic teenagers and her politicization of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Omar has committed several major foreign policy blunders that may lead even Democrats to question whether she is suited for a congressional foreign affairs committee.”
