Ok, ilhan omar’s apology tour – the one-time, not-quite-direct apology for her latest anti-Semitic tweet – is over. Back to business as usual.
Excerpted from Sam Westrop’s article at Islamist Watch:
Despite battling accusations of anti-Semitism, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) is due to speak this month at a fundraising event alongside a senior charity official who has published social media posts praising the killing of Jews.
Islamic Relief USA is hosting a fundraising dinner for aid to Yemen on February 23. Rep. Ilhan Omar is due to speak alongside senior Islamic Relief USA official Yousef Abdallah, who was widely criticized in 2017 after the Middle East Forum found he had expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social media accounts.
Abdallah, who serves as Islamic Relief USA’s “operations manager,” shared a “very beautiful” modernized version of a Palestinian folk story about a ‘resistance hero’ named Zharif al-Tawl, who took revenge against Jewish “gangs” – which had purportedly attacked a Palestinian village – by providing guns to “kill more than 20 jews” and “fire rockets at Tel Aviv.”
Other posts referred to Jews as “stinking,” and claim “the Jews put the outside wall of Al Aqsa [the mosque in Jerusalem] on fire.” Abdallah also ‘liked’ a comment on his Facebook post that calls on God to wreak “revenge on the damned rapists Zionists. O God they are no challenge for you . Shake the Earth beneath their feet and destroy them as you destroyed the peoples of ʿĀd, Thamud and Lot.”
Is that telling enough for you? Sickening enough for you? I would hope so.
But just in case it isn’t, read about omar’s lame attempt to pretend this never was going to happen:
UPDATE: After the story below was covered by Jerusalem Post,Washington Examiner, Daily WIre, JNS and other publications, Islamic Relief removed Yousef Abdallah’s name from the event. Then, Jeremy Slavin, who claims to work for Rep. Omar, publicly messaged us to claim that: “This story is inaccurate. Yousef Abdallah will not be speaking or attending the event with Rep. Omar and was never scheduled to do so. Please correct.”
This is astoundingly incorrect, and appears to be a deliberate attempt to deceive. Unfortunately for Mr Slavin, we have copies of the original poster as it appeared (as recently as) this morning.
Is THAT telling enough? Is THAT sickening enough?
Rep. ilhan omar (D-MN) is an Israel-hating, Jew hating anti-Semite. No different from her soul sister Rep. rashida tlaib (D-MI). And, sad to say, they are not bizarre anomalies within the Democrat Party, they are part and parcel of where today’s Democrat Party is quickly drifting.
And, yes, ilhan omar has still not been stripped of her committee assignments. She is still a member in disgraceful standing, of the Foreign Affairs Committee: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) still gives her a vote on all our policies toward Israel.
The “Lost Tribe” Jews and non-Jews who support Israel will have to work double-overtime to pretend/rationalize this away and still remain solid Democrats.
But don’t worry Ms. Pelosi, and House Majority Leader Hoyer and Senate Minority Leader Schumer. Lost Tribers have demonstrated over and over again that their capacity to do so is nearly unlimited. So it is an excellent bet you and your anti-Semites are home free.
And as for our wonderful “neutral” media? The ones who would go bat-excrement crazy if this were a Republican? They largely remain in protect-Democrats mode and will make little or nothing of it.
Well, at least they can argue that “suppressed news” isn’t quite the same as “fake news”…
