Ilhan Omar pushes for Anti-Israel BDS Movement

Ilhan Omar pushes for Anti-Israel BDS Movement

It was simply a matter of time before Rep. llhan Omar (D-MN) shown her true colors, as a confirmed enemy of Israel the only true democracy within the Middle East.

The House Foreign Relations Committee that Omar sits on brought forward a non-binding resolution condemning the anti-Israel Boycotts, Disinvestments, and Sanctions movement.

However Omar defended the movement comparing it to our Boston Tea Party then arrogantly introduced her own anti-Israel resolution in support of the movement which promotes boycotting, divesting and sanctioning the Jewish-State.

“We are introducing a resolution . . . to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor. “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”

Omar’s resolution was  warmly greeted by the pro-Palestine anti-Israel organization “The BDS movement for Palestinian rights warmly welcomes the resolution introduced by Congress members Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and US civil rights veteran John Lewis “Affirming that all Americans have the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights.”

The announcement of the dueling resolutions comes on the same day that the House Foreign Affairs Committee, plans to vote on their  non-binding resolution explicitly condemning the BDS movement as an attempt to “undermine the two state solution” by demanding “concessions of one party alone and encouraging Palestinians to reject negotiations in favor of international pressure.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) wasn’t having any of Omar’s anti-Semitic crap, which apparently House Democrats are fearful of condemning outright.

“Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats. Shame on Rep @Ilhan Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.”

The anti-BDS resolution further notes that the movement’s founder, Omar Bharghouti, has openly dismissed the possibility of reaching any settlement that allows the state of Israel to retain its sovereignty.

Omar was the lone vote against the anti-BDS resolution, further demonstrating her anti-Israel stand and the obvious divide that exists between herself and the rest of the lawmakers within House Foreign Affairs Committee.

After the vote Rep. Zeldin once again tweeted out, “Great News! @HouseForeign just passed HRes246 opposing the BDS movement, which is a blatantly anti-Israel & anti-Semitic effort that targets Israel & the Jewish people. The full House should pass this reso ASAP & then do something about it by passing S-1/HR336 as well!”

For those not familiar with this anti-Israeli movement, its intent is to bankrupt Israel by attempting a worldwide boycott of Israeli goods and services, cultural exchanges, divestment of holding in foreign counties, through punitive sanctions. With their ultimate demand the “right of return” for all Palestinians everywhere. In shot the complete abolishment of the Jewish State.

Several months ago (seems like an eternity), Rep. Eliot Engel, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called out Omar for making another anti-Semitic remark, then Engel called for the Minnesota lawmaker to apologize

“I welcome debate in Congress based on the merits of policy, but it’s unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow American citizens because of their political views, including support for the U.S.-Israel relationship,” the New York Democrat, who is Jewish, said. “Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”

One needs to ask why is this avowed enemy of Israel allowed to sit on the Foreign Affairs Committee.

    One needs to ask why is this avowed enemy of Israel allowed to sit on the Foreign Affairs Committee. I was wondering the same thing. How can a newly elected rep. get put on this committee with her background unless the Dems placed her on the committee knowing her Anti-Israel stance..

    Rep. llhan Omar does not listen to the history of the conflict over there at all.

    Every time Israel has responded to an attack by Palestinians who want to destroy Israel not the other way around!!!

    If the Palestinians stop! shooting they will have place and not before! this is the only way to have a resolution to this!!!
