Dem Rep. Retweets Statement Alluding to Anti-Semitism

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) inexplicably retweeted a criticism accusing her of spreading an anti-Semitic stereotype as pernicious as calling Jewish people “hook-nosed.” (The Daily Caller)

The criticism came after Omar accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of buying pro-Israel support from members of Congress in a post on Twitter, for which she received serious backlash on the social media platform.

A number of people weighed in on Omar’s claim.

Joshua Zeitz, a contributing editor at Politico Magazine, tweeted, “I’m one of those American Jews who opposes the occupation, laments Israel’s anti-democratic drift, and doesn’t regard the country as especially central to my Jewish identity. And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us hook-nosed.”

She then retweeted Zeitz despite the seemingly critical nature of his tweet.

Several prominent Democrats expressed outrage at Omar’s tweets, including Congressman Max Rose (D-NY) and Chelsea Clinton.
