Jewish Leaders Aren’t Buying Ilhan Omar’s Apologies


Not for the first time, Rep. Ilham Omar (D-MN) found herself accused of anti-Semitism this week when she insinuated that Republican politicians were being bought by Jewish lobbying groups so that they would continue to support Israel. The tweets that caused the controversy involved Omar telling journalist Glenn Greenwald that for the GOP, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” When asked specifically who was paying the Republican Party to support Israel, she replied: “AIPAC!”

This drew condemnation from across the political spectrum, and Omar – under pressure – released what the called an “unequivocal” apology. Even so, her apology demonstrated the very definition of equivocating. After saying she was sorry for offending Jews with her “THEY CONTROL THE WORLD WITH MONEY” conspiratorial tweets, she said, “At the same time, I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be Aipac, the N.R.A. or the fossil fuel industry.”

But not CAIR, we assume.

In any event, President Trump was not impressed with Omar’s apology. Calling it “lame,” the president said Omar should consider stepping down.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress,” Trump said Wednesday. “I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the foreign affairs committee.”

This drew Omar out of apology mode real quick.

“Hi @realDonaldTrump,” she tweeted. “You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”

But while Omar says she’s learned from her mistakes, Jewish leaders in her home state beg to differ. According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Minnesota State Sen. Ron Latz and other Jewish leaders held what amounted to an intervention for Omar last year before her election to Congress.

“Over the course of about two hours, we shared with her our concerns for things, including language that has references and meanings beyond just the meanings of words,” Latz said. “Tropes, dog whistles — call them what you will. We explained to her how hurtful, and factually inaccurate, they were.

“Most of us came out of that conversation very troubled by the answers we received,” he continued. “I was not convinced she was going to give a balanced approach to policy in the Middle East, and I was not convinced where her heart is on these things.”

Of the latest controversy, Latz said: “At some point, it becomes a little tired to hear her say she’s being ‘educated.’”

Oh, but we don’t doubt that she is being educated – namely, educated in how to better hide her hatred of Israel and the Jews…until the time is right.

What do you think?

    • If the jew’s are so smart why do they keep voting for socialist’s they don’t like jews never have, look at obuma,he hated them,but they voted for him because he was a democrat.Go figure.Sometimes stupid cant be cured!

      • I agree. The American Jew is one who believes in socialism and many also adhere to the concept of communism as per the Rosenburg’s, Fuch’s and of number of others who held no allegiance for this country. The same cannot be said of the Israeli Jew, at least not for many years now since they changed from living in Kubutzes to a rather capitalist society.

    • BEWARE !THE DEMOCRATS ARE USING AOC AND OMAR FOR WHAT THEY ARE. DOING UNDER COVER TOO AMERICA. DEEP STATE SWAMP OWNERS AND MEDIA. ARE PUSHING THEM.NOTICE THESE RADICAL MARXIST SOCIALISTS ARE LIKE FLEAS. ALL BLOOD SUCKRRS BEFORE THE DISEASED TICKS PLAGUE .

    • PROBABLY BELONGS TO ISIS,WITH LIBERALS BACKING HER I HAVE NO DOUBTS.SHOULD BE TRIED FOR TREASON OR IMPEACHED NOT FOLLOWING OATH OF OFFICE.TYPICAL LIBERAL LIAR.

  1. She is not here to assimilate, she is here to further the Sharia Law agenda, One World Caliphate and the extermination of ALL infidels. She should be removed from office and deported (along with her family & associates) back to Somalia where she belongs!

    • Yes most definitely get her ass out of this country and out of our government her and the whole damn family! We let her come here as a refugee and look at the shit she’s doing Time to kick her ass out

    • Absolsutely we have no tolerance for her kind of intolerance. She is despicable and as you say, all of her kith and kin should be removed back to Somalia. We absolutely do not need her kind here

      Alernatively let us go as a huge group of people to Somalia and enjoin them in becoming Americans, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, and whatever else including Wiccin. Then watch the blood shed.

    • Ii is too late for Minnesota, where a large Muslin minority, or maybe even majority, is voting this state into a Muslim enclave.
      The camel’s nose of Islam is into the Wisconsin politics, there is nothing to prevent this state to be turned into a radical Muslin enclave, a seed pot for conquering the rest of America for Islam.
      Islam has been at war between the two main sects, Sunnis and Shias, since the death of the Founder of Islam, Mohammad, in the year of 632, over who was the real successor of Mohammad.
      Even during the war in Iraq under George H W Bush, this war continued unabated, with destruction of Mosques being the highlighted in Western media.

      Unless America refuses acceptance of Islam in all it’s versions, this nation will self destruct.
      POTUS Trump may be the last chance America has to save this nation.

    • MOST DONT KNOW BUT OBAMAO PUT 70,000 SOMALIANS IN MINNESOTA. NOW IT A TERRORIST TRAINING CAMP ALL ON TAXPAYER WELFARE. OBAMAO ALSO FORCED OTHER STATES TO TAKE THOUSANDS. MICHIGAN IS THE ARAB MUSLIMS TERRORIST TRAINING CAMP. DEARBORN MUSLIMS NOW CONTROL WITH SHARIA LAW.. UNDERGROUND MILLIONAIRE MUSLIM BANK. BUT IN DAYLIGHT 4 WIVES OR MORE 100’s of kids all on welfare. AND THE MEN WALK THE STREETS IN GANGS.

  2. I wonder how many of the Jewish leaders who ‘intervened’ with Omar BEFORE she was elected, voted against her, and how many of them voted a straight democrat party ballot. Yes, she is a racist. So, how did she get elected in the first place?

  3. These people are less than human and they want to rule the World!! Why are they allowed in Congress? That is my question? Did she swear on the Bible to uphold the Constitution when she took office? If not, WHY NOT? My guess is that she used the Quran and that is not acceptable by any standard of OUR culture. I would venture to think she didn’t win the election fairly either, I do not think anyone in Minnesota or anywhere else in America would want this woman representing them as she definitely does NOT represent FREEDOM!!

    • She was apparently elected by the like minded. What was once unthinkable is slowly becoming common coinage in our culture. She may not represent freedom but those who voted for her don’t see it that way.

  4. My guestion exaxly! How did she get elected? There is something going on here, just like New York, how did she get elected and that other one get elected. Where did their funding come from? They made it clear while running that they were intent on radically changing America! That should be grounds for an investigation!

    • exactly, these people complain about whites b n racist towards blacks yet she is racist towards Jewish people – can you say hypocrite

  5. this anit American is only apologizing bc she has too. why she was ever voted in is beyond me. Jewish leaders come over to the good side which is Republican. Trump truly cares about this country and always has. You are smart people and will do the right thing

  6. There needs to be a petition to have her removed or recalled. And deported back to where she came from. Enough people in the United States should be able to pull this off. We have a Enough terrorist in this country that we don’t know about versus the one we do know about.

  7. I can tell by these emails that the people get it and think this Idiot should be out of politics as well as this country. I’m with the people that are onto this politician.

  8. It’s only racist if you say something towards certain people.

    How many people (especially in entertainment industry) have lost their jobs and careers because they tweeted out something that some people thought was wrong. The entertainers would apologize, but it doesn’t matter. They said it, and they are not on the left.

    These people (and I use the term loosely) are getting me so pis**d off every day. I am very afraid of where they want to bring this country.

  9. She is a piece of trash and I think she needs to taken to the airport by Air Marshalls who should escort her out of the country and she should be on a watch list and not allowed back in this country ever.

  10. Another Muslim trying to destroy America from within, of course along with the DNC, this peace of garbage should have never been allowed to even run for anything in America and surely never be elected, kick her A$$ out alone with the rest of her kind.

  11. What is Minn (D-MN} makes you people vote for someone in a high office that wants to commit murder on all infidels that don’t agree with the Quran … What are you Smoking up there ?

  12. I see this as getting what you ask for. My grandparents were farmers and they had a saying about making sure not to put a ‘fox in the hen house’ because the fox would kill all the chickens and eat all the eggs, leaving no survivors. Democrats and RINO’S who thought it was a good idea to have a wide range of diversity, especially as to gender, race, county of origin and religious identity would vote to put Osama bin Laden in office were he still alive. What they have done resulted in the chickens having come home to roost in a hen house that has been invaded by the enemy. They gave birth to this debacle but have no clue of the danger they have placed America and Americans in. Maybe they succeeded in proving that America is a diverse Nation but at what cost? ilhan Omar can apologize for the Anti-Sematic remarks she spewed but I am not hearing any sincerity in her apology. She did not even take the oath of office using the Bible, which is Traditional in America. To me that indicated that even before she was sworn in she was going to be divisive, radical and dismissive of our Constitution and what is actually becoming a joke amongst Democrats which is their ‘Congressional ethics/code of conduct’.

  13. She got elected, not by your average Democrat or Republican Minnesotan voter, but because she represents an area of Minneapolis that has tens of thousands of Somali refugees. Of course they voted for a fellow Somali – another example of the Democrats “assimilation”.

  14. This muslim dog woman needs to be censored and impeached for treason racist liberal scumbag trash mouth filthy female dog is irrelevant to the American people. Lock her up.

  15. IT IS CALLED “MURUNA” JIHAD (Muslim Trojan Horse) DESTRUCTION FROM WITHIN & PAVING THE WAY FOR *ISLAM* TO TAKE OVER! (OBAMA / CLINTON ISLAMIC CALIPHATE) OPENED THE PORTALS TO HELL FOR *8 LONG DIABOLICAL YRS.* !!! ONLY GOD CAN “DELIVER” ALL THOSE *ENSLAVED* TO THE

  16. Send this idiot back where she came from Tired of these outsiders coming into our countrey and trying to take over. Telling us what to do.en in our counrty Muslems have no place in conress or even in our country. Is she even a citizen ?

  17. You asked if she swore on the bible her oath of office. Silly question, don’t be offended, just think about it. I read an article written soon after all the new rookie congress members took their oaths. She did use the Quran instead of the Bible. The book she placed her filthy hand on came from Thomas Jefferson’s collection. (It belonged to a founding father and calling from memory I’m 98% sure it was T.Jefferson) The idiot said the fact that a founding father owned the Quran means America was founded by, for and because of Muslims. That is a crock of canal scathology. Thomas Jefferson himself said to fight an enemy you must know and understand that enemy. At that time one of Americas main enemy’s were the Muslim pirates around northern Africa, the Barbary Pirates, who,by the way,were also the main source of African slaves sold to Europe, England and into the western himisphere. Jefferson purchased the Quran so he could learn more about Muslims and know how to fight them. The Muslims were amung Americas worst enemys and things haven’t changed all that much in 240+ years. I know not all Muslims are evil sacks full of camel dung like the congresswoman from Minnesota but she sure gives a bad impression of typical Muslims. I am sorry if I drifted off from the main purpose of this message. I simply wanted to thank the one true God for providing us with a great country to live in and to raise our families in. While accepting what God has provided, we must accept certain responsibilities, just like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and all the other founders did. We must fight for and defend our hard won and dearly held freedoms. Our US Constitution and its Amendments, especially the first ten, “The Bill of Rights”, must be held in the highest regard. Any person or group of people who seeks to disregard our Constitution or to sneek around it claiming its only ” common sense” or for any reason is and must be held to be an enemy of The United States of America, no exception allowed. If there comes a real need to change the Constitution there are proper, legal ways to do so. They must be followed to the letter, no shenanagens behind closed doors and no money changing hand.
    Now, after getting all that off my chest, we should form a vigilante group, just like the old days and go get rails, tar and feathers and make a list of guests of honor. All Muslim representatives or senators, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton, Nancy Pisslosy, AOC, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, SOROS and minions, damn, if they are demafarts hang’em, get a rope we’re running out of feathers.

  18. The only difference between Muslim and CATHOLIC “C” is the continent they destroy. Trump was the first AMERICAN elected as pres. since 1960! . The only difference between Muslim and “C” is the continent they destroy … The clear and imminent danger to the USA is here and now!………Catholics want the INVASION, CONQUEST, SUBJUGATION, THEN ELIMINATION TO CONTINUE. ….. Look south of the USA. This has been the plan for a thousand years….. Know who the real enemy is. … Vote for ANY “C” and you vote for a traitor. and the invasion will never stop.

    • Al, what have you been smoking to give you that idea? Where did you crawl out from under? Your blog is utter N O N S E N S E! ACTUALLY IT IS THE RAVINGS OF A MADMAN! ARE YOU OFF YOUR MEDS Al? Time to get your drugs big boy calm yourself down and take a CHILL PILL!

  19. So now this person is in power what are the Jewish people going to do about it. Maybe they need to get a petition up and have all their people sign it . This person is not going to get any better they need to act now . How could Jewish people vote for Democrats who want to destroy them I’m confused .

  20. Omar is but one muslim woman. Not only are the odds stacked against her, but many in her own party don’t like nor trust her and her Latina friend Cortez isn’t looked at fondly either. Two foreign women spells disaster in Congress!
    Certain factions are already trying to recall Cortez, perhaps the next Omar opens her big muslim mouth and inserts her foot AGAIN, the Democrats will ask her to leave…or not.

    I believe this is going to turn ugly fast and neither of those clueless broads will ever see it coming until It’s just too late to run!
    KARMA IS A BITCH…It is what it is!

  21. I find it hard to believe the people of Minnesota actually voted FOR this thing. Maybe it’s another case of voter fraud or something, I’m kinda thinking it happened a lot more than we knew during the last 3 election cycles. Maybe here in Oregon too, we’ve had our share of impeachment or removals which tells me we the people were not responsible for them being in office in the first place. I don’t know anybody that likes or wants Kate brown but she got it somehow. I’m thinking with everybody focusing on the federal elections, nobody was paying attention to their local elections. One thing I did notice is it seems like the only states or jurisdictions with issues are those run by democrats, kind of funny isn’t it?

  22. Neither am I? Muslim people lie and deceive and it is in their NOT SO HOLY QUR’AN!! They are told in their own Qur’an to LIE is necessary!! Please read their UNHOLY BOOK!!!! Unfortunately, I am a Christian and, was unfortunately, born and raised in one of their countries and KNOW WELL what I am talking about!!!!
