Jewish House Colleagues Blast Rep. Omar For Comparing Israel To Hamas & Taliban
Outspoken ‘Squad’ members have once again sparked controversy dividing Democrats in Congress – this time over support for Israel, particularly coming off last month’s eleven-day bombing of Gaza in retaliation for thousands of Hamas rockets launched. The inter-party controversy is spilling over into rare public turmoil and heated accusations.
A statement from a dozen Jewish House Democratic lawmakers has slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar for “equating the US and Israel to Hamas and Taliban” and is further demanding she “clarify” her words which came in the following tweet earlier this week…
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan)
