The Democratic Party's Smoldering Antisemitism and Affinity with Islam
Apparently the condemnation of anti-Semitism is now something the Democrats are now trying to avoid.
This is a rather sudden shift, because Jewish Americans have been a reliable Democratic voting bloc for decades.
But the Democrats are in a political bind, because two of the most recently elected Representatives in Congress
are Muslim women.
The Democrats are trying to pander to Muslims because the Muslim demographic is expanding rapidly,
especially because the Muslims are being invited to this country with no expectation that they will
assimilate. Enclaves with nicknames like "Little Mogadishu" and "Dearbornistan" are the direct
result of the Democrats' efforts to import Muslims, get them signed up for welfare, and have them
register to vote. There is little incentive to learn English, and even less incentive to
give up the barbaric
7th-century traditions of the countries from which
= the New Nazi. Comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Jim Clyburn and Rep. Rashida Tlaib display
contempt for Jews — in Rep. Clyburn's case, for victims of the Holocaust. Heavily Democratic
legislatures in New York, Illinois and Virginia perpetuate the wanton destruction of human life by passing laws allowing
abortion to the moment of birth. In Virginia, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said a woman can choose whether a baby
who survived a botched abortion should live. False flags are cynically organized to delude the unsuspecting and promote
an agenda. Behind those developments is the pervasive identity politics that defines some groups as inherently better
than others. In those four areas — anti-Semitism, genocide, false flags and identity politics —
do "democratic socialists" and Nazis share more than the former want to admit. Contempt for Jews is not limited to
Nazis or "democratic socialists." But by embracing Islam in their politics of "diversity" and "inclusion," the
"democratic socialists" tolerate Islam's anti-Semitism.
Hypocrisy on Condemning Anti-Semitism Is Becoming Tiresome. As an American Jew who retired after 30 years of
practicing law in order to fight anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, including spending the past 15 years working with many
Jewish and non-Jewish organizations on these issues, I am disgusted at the hypocrisy of Democrat lawmakers and liberal Jewish
leaders who are blind to anti-Semites in their midst while using anti-Semitism on the right as a political tool for
grandstanding and self-promotion. I have written extensively over the years about rising anti-Semitism in the Democrat
Party and on the left more generally. Yet American Jews continue to remain tethered to the party that refuses to
denounce Jew-hatred in its midst while embracing lawmakers who are raging anti-Semites, including Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib,
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Pramila Jayapal, Betty McCollum, and Keith Ellison, to name a few.
Can Georgians Be Foolish Enough
to Vote for a Hate-Filled Lying Phony Like Warnock? Of course Raphael Warnock has no business running for a
serious political office. Still, he certainly is allowed to try. [...] For years Warnock would get up in church, week
after week, and attack Jews in Israel, accusing them of horrific things that have no relationship to reality. It was
safe for him to do so. He was preaching in a Black church. Jews don't attend Black churches in any particular
numbers, if at all, so there is nowhere safer to beat up on Jews. Compare us to Nazis — who is going to
take umbrage? Tell a Black audience that Jews in Israel are like those who imposed Apartheid against Blacks in South
Africa. Who will stand and exclaim, "You are a liar!" In a room where even Waldo will not be found, it is safe to
slander Jews and Israel. So, with no Jews in the church to bear witness to truth, this anti-Semite compared the prime
minister of Israel to... former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, the ultimate racist encountered by Blacks in southern
segregationist states like Georgia and adjacent Alabama. Warnock used his Black church pulpit for years to attack Jews,
to attack Israel. Who can know or gauge how many truly decent, kind-hearted Black Americans in Georgia have been
converted for life into Jew-haters for life by this evil man? Preachers carry enormous influence.
am appalled at the election of Raphael Warnock. As an American who reveres our country, our founding, and our
Constitution, I am appalled at the election of Raphael Warnock. His beliefs, as declared over the course of decades,
about this country, race, Israel, and a host of other issues are frightening. As a Jew, Warnock's relentless
anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements are shocking, yet they represent a growing view within the Democrat Party, the Left,
and the media. And those statements were never condemned by Democrat Party leaders and the media. In fact, Joe
Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned hard for Warnock, and this morning the media are touting his historic victory without
comment about what the election of such an extremist and anti-Semite means for the future of the Democrat Party and the nation.
Perfect Patsies. Are the Jews to blame for spreading COVID-19 throughout New York City? That's what Mayor
Bill de Blasio suggested in an inflammatory tweet back in April, which, in his typical bumbling fashion, he defended for six
months before kinda, sorta walking it back. Never mind all that. The city is serious! It believes in
science! Earlier this week, the mayor's office launched its "NYC Vaccine for All" campaign, announcing that it will
begin offering the COVID vaccine soonest. Who will get it first? Naturally, the neighborhoods "hardest hit" by
the pandemic, the mayor's office assured us, 27 of them in total. Hallelujah! So now we have an official record
of the hardest hit corners of New York, which means that if the mayor's criticism was correct, we should find many familiar
ZIP codes among those singled out for urgent care. Let us, then, turn to the list and search for the neighborhoods
heaviest populated by Orthodox Jews, the clear target of the mayor's ire.
Latest Autobiography Rewrites Israeli History to Make You Hate the Jewish State. Whatever the merits or lack
thereof of Barack Obama's presidency, he certainly leads all other presidents in the number of autobiographies he has
written, with three compared to a number of his peers who are tied at one. However, his latest one, A Promised Land, is
more than just an update on the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of the Most Undeservedly Celebrated Man on the Planet; it's
a full-on apologia for his policies as president, and a program for his impending third term, aka the Biden administration.
Denounce Raphael Warnock for 'Antisemitic Rhetoric'. The Coalition for Jewish Values, a group of traditional
rabbis, accused Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock of "antisemitic rhetoric" on Friday
[12/18/2020]. The group, which represents "over 1500 traditional rabbis in matters of public policy," also accused
liberal Jews from the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) of trying to "whitewash" Warnock's views by circulating a
petition claiming that he was the victim of "baseless claims and attacks."
There Anti-Semitic Tropes in Obama's Memoir? Writing in The Australian, economist Henry Ergas noticed
something in Obama's memoir that has so far been ignored by the mainstream media. Or perhaps it was just never seen
before because, really, how many people who bought Obama's absurd book (which is only the first volume of his presidential
memoirs) actually read the thing? According to Ergas, "The silence that has greeted the former US president's
description of Nicolas Sarkozy in his book reflects the normalisation of casual anti-Semitism on the 'progressive' side of
politics." What did Obama say about Sarkozy? [Book excerpt and discussion omitted for brevity.] The political
left assumes a moral high ground on diversity, so ready to be offended at words so innocent they have to be dubbed "micro-aggressions"
so they can virtue-signal their own "anti-racist" bonafides. In fairness, Obama's casual anti-Semitism during his eight years
at the White House makes his unflattering depiction of Sarkozy seem trivial by comparison, but imagine if Donald Trump wrote such a thing.
Tlaib, Sarsour to headline Georgia Senate event as Warnock fights anti-Semitism claims. Democrat Raphael
Warnock was already struggling to beat back allegations of anti-Semitism, and then Linda Sarsour and Reps. Ilhan Omar
and Rashida Tlaib jumped into the Georgia Senate election picture. The Georgia chapter of the Council on
American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] plans to hold Sunday evening a virtual "vote-a-thon" aimed at encouraging Georgia Muslims
to vote in the Jan. 5 run-off elections, an event featuring the Democratic congresswomen as well as Ms. Sarsour.
All three have expressed support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment cause, and all three have been embroiled
in recent years in headline-grabbing anti-Semitism controversies. All three deny being anti-Semitic or anti-Jewish.

Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock Spread Fabrication that Jesus Was a "Poor Palestinian". Groucho Marx once
famously quipped, "If you've heard this story before, don't stop me, because I'd like to hear it again." Reverend Raphael
Warnock — senior pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta (where MLK Jr. and Sr. served as co-pastors) and
Democratic candidate for Senate — seems to have adopted Groucho's joke as a personal mantra: like Yasser
Arafat, Ilhan Omar, Linda Sarsour, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, The New York Times, and many others before him, Warnock has
attempted to rewrite history, claiming that Jesus of Nazareth was "Palestinian."
and Tlaib Headline Anti-Israel Hatefest. Democratic representatives Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.),
and Betty McCollum (Minn.) headlined a conference this weekend run by one of the nation's most prolific anti-Israel advocacy
groups, lending their support to an organization that champions boycotts of Israel and has partnered with individuals tied to
terrorism. The lawmakers, known for their anti-Israel rhetoric and promotion of anti-Semitic materials, appeared at the
American Muslims for Palestine's (AMP) annual conference, which was held virtually over Thanksgiving weekend. The
conference featured outspoken critics of Israel, including those with reported ties to the Hamas terror group. AMP,
which itself has been tied to terror financiers, is a leading promoter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement,
which seeks to wage economic warfare on Israel by boycotting Jewish-made goods.
Obama's Visceral Dislike of Israel, the Jewish State, Revealed in his Latest Book. Though we have not over the
years accused Barack Obama of anti-Semitism, we did feel even prior to his election in 2008 that Obama was uncomfortable with
the idea of Jewish sovereignty, as well as Jewish rights in and of themselves, disconnected from intersectionality. In
his recent book, Promised Land, it is crystal clear that Obama is uncomfortable, perhaps even hostile to a specific Jewish
state in the Land of Israel and used his tenure as president to undermine the proud and glorious history of Zionism. He
spent excessive zeal and capital to reshape American and world policy so as to establish the Palestinian Arab narrative as
the only legitimate political outlook and forum. Had his book been written by someone else, many would have easily
characterized the author's anti-Zionism and non-regard for the right of the Jewish people to possess and control their land
as bordering on anti-Semitism.
Tlaib Reacts to Likelihood of Jewish Secretary of State With Textbook Antisemitism. Fresh from being announced
as a panelist on a "Dismantling antisemitism" panel, congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has gotten back to work, showing how her
expertise on antisemitism comes from personal experience[.] Antony Blinken is Jewish. Tlaib's first utterance to
him being the likely US Secretary of State is concern he will be pro-Israel. Of course to those of us paying attention
(or who care), this is not Tlaib's first time perpetuating the antisemitic dual loyalty canard. She simply cannot help herself.
de Blasio Has Sent Spies With High Power Lenses Into Jewish Neighborhoods To Catch Them Congregating. These two
New York City workers were caught taking photos with high power lenses of Jewish apartments to catch them congregating in
apartments. Indoor gatherings in New York are limited to 10 people max and masks must be worn at all times. This
comes only a month after Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted he and his administration should have done a better job of communicating
the dangers of the coronavirus to the city's Orthodox Jewish communities. de Blasio [has] caught heat for singling
out the Jewish community in a tweet about people who are not following the city's social distancing rules earlier this year.
U professor hates Israel so much she erases Jews from her photos of "Palestine". About a week ago, Ariella
Aisha Azoulay of Brown University gave an anti-Israel lecture at Cornell. One of the attendees described the lecture
this way: ["]Today I attended a lecture given by Brown University professor Ariella Azoulay who had been invited to
talk to a Cornell class in the school of architecture. This lecture was afactual, ahistorical and steeped in
antisemitic narratives to the extent that all photographs showing Jews or Israelis she had erased the image of the people
because 'I can't bear to look at them.' Deeply disturbing and profoundly depressing.["] Sure enough, Azoulay
tweeted her photos that she showed at the lecture, and they show all Jews who were the early pioneers of modern Israel are
deliberately blacked out of the photos.
doctor who boasted she would give Jews the wrong medications loses license. The State Medical Board of Ohio
permanently revoked the medical training certificate of a doctor who was fired from two residency programs after old
anti-Semitic tweets surfaced — including one in which she threatened to give Jews the wrong medications.
Lara Kollab is permanently prohibited from practicing osteopathic medicine or surgery in Ohio, Cleveland.com reported.
She surrendered her certificate prior to its revocation August 12, according to the report, and cannot participate in
another medical training program in the state.
features performance by rapper who has promoted infamous anti-Semite Farrakhan. During Night 4 of the
Democratic National Convention on Thursday, the Democratic Party featured an artist with ties to a known anti-Semite.
Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., better known by his stage name Common, performed a song celebrating the 1965 Selma to Montgomery
voting rights marches. Common has promoted the work of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whom the Anti-Defamation
League describes as "quite possibly America's most popular anti-Semite."
uneasy coalition already fracturing over DNC featuring a Palestinian anti-Semite Tuesday night. Forget the happy talk of
the mainstream media. The Democrats are a coalition of mutually antagonistic factions, united only by their hatred of President
Donald Trump. They couldn't even keep a lid on the conflict between the dominant radicals and the pseudo-moderates propping up
senescent Joe Biden as a putative centrist. Don't look for the mainstream media to mention this, but the Biden campaign actually
disavowed one of the speakers during last night's Democratic National Convention internet TV show, Linda Sarsour and she is muttering
about retaliation at the polls. Remember her? [...] Sarsour's Jew hatred is so toxic that she was forced out of her leadership
role in the "Women's March on Washington" last year.
Bass Denies Links To Nation Of Islam, Despite Photos And Event Appearances, But Doesn't Disavow Radical Group.
Rep. Karen Bass, a top contender to become presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's running mate,
appeared at Nation of Islam events, posed for a picture with a top Nation of Islam official, and attended a forum in 2013
hosted by the organization's official mouthpiece. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has referred to Jewish people
as "satanic," blamed them for the Holocaust and the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, and once praised Adolf Hitler as a
"very great man." Farrakhan has also denounced interracial marriage, which he said has "mongrelized" the black race.
The Nation of Islam holds that white people were created 6,000 years ago as the result of a selective breeding program by a
black scientist called Yakub.
Pelosi Stands with Anti-Semites. Last Wednesday [7/29/2020], Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi endorsed
Rep. Rashida Tlaib in her August 4 Michigan Democratic primary rematch with Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones,
whom Tlaib narrowly defeated in 2018. Similarly, for the August 11 Minnesota primary, Pelosi endorsed another of
Congress' three Israel-boycotters, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been enthusiastically praised by David Duke, and was voted
2019 Antisemite of the Year in a poll by stopantisemitism.org. What is Pelosi's motivation in supporting them? Is
it identity politics? In Omar's race, Pelosi had the option of endorsing her progressive African-American opponent, who
opposes the Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) campaign to isolate and destroy Israel. In Tlaib's race, where opponent
Brenda Jones is a staunch ally of Rev. Louis Farrakhan, Pelosi had the option of staying neutral.
and bigotry on the Syracuse University campus. What appeared to be a noble effort to discuss bias at Syracuse
University ironically turned into a vicious exercise in bias and bigotry as the conversations turned into an anti-Semitic
witch hunt. A few students recently created multiple Instagram pages, inviting fellow students and faculty to post
stories about incidents of bias on campus. Those who share their stories are permitted to remain anonymous, but the
students and professors accused of perpetrating bias are freely and fully identified — and targeted. One of
the pages has warned their viewers to look out for "openly Zionist" professors on campus, naming one professor in particular
and attacking students who support the faculty member.
interviewing with radical anti-Semite Linda Sarsour now. Renowned anti-Semite Linda Sarsour was the interviewer
during a recent phone call by Joe Biden to the nation's largest Muslim-American PAC. It was televised from his
basement. He promised her he would end the Trump travel ban and 'Islamicphobia'. As an aside, the Trump travel
ban was similar to the Obama travel ban and the Bush travel ban. "If I have the honor of being president, I will end
the Muslim ban on day one, day one," Biden said during the "Million Muslim Votes Summit" call hosted by Emgage Action which
endorsed his White House bid in April.
Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Blasts Anti-Semitism in Black Lives Matter Movement. One of the greatest basketball
players of all time has given an insightful and eloquent warning that the lack of attention to anti-Semitism is helping to
perpetuate racism in America. Los Angeles Lakers all-star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a columnist for The Hollywood Reporter
and wrote a stern warning this week that there was an alarming connection between hatred of Jews on social media and Black
Lives Matter. "Anti-Semitic tweets and posts from sports and entertainment celebrities are a very troubling omen for
the future of the Black Lives Matter movement, but so too is the shocking lack of massive indignation," Abdul-Jabbar wrote.
Liberals Sure Hate Jews. That the political left is a cesspool of hatred and bigotry is nothing new, a simple
Internet search about college campus life over the past few years turns up disgusting, violent attacks on anyone not deemed
"woke" enough. Not bowing down and kissing the boots of the Marxist ANTIFA or "Black Lives Matter" or whatever
fascistic flavor of the moment Democrats are embracing to terrorize the public into submission has become so "normal" that
even when it takes out a fellow useful idiot in the media, it barely registers as a news story anymore. But there is
one form of hatred that doesn't rate a blip on the radar of the leftist media, mostly because it is a pandemic among their
fellow travelers: anti-Semitism.
Cannon propagated antisemitic conspiracy theories on his podcast. Actor and TV host Nick Cannon has been seen
spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories and praising Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in a video that has resurfaced
and been circulated on social media, Jewish Insider reported. [...] The actor and TV host also said that "it's never hate
speech, you can't be antisemitic when we are the semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be.
That's our birthright," adding that "we are the true Hebrews." Cannon also spoke about conspiracies linking Zionists,
the Rothschilds and the Illuminati, and praised controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, saying "every time I've
heard him speak, it's positive, it's powerful, it's uplifting... for whatever reason, he's been demonized."
Reaction to the article immediately above: Nick Cannon propagated
antisemitic conspiracy theories on his podcast. BLM's antisemitism destroys their entire mission by
objective. The normalization of Jew-hatred in America's Black community should not come as a surprise. The Black
Lives Matter movement is totally aligned with the BDS (Boycott the Jews) Movement. In addition, America's Leftist Black
leaders such as Louis Farrakhan, Cornel West, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson are virulent anti-Semites. It is sad that
the profound contributions made by Jewish Americans to the civil rights movement have been forgotten.
is coming to America. Time after time for the past four decades my liberal friends and relatives have refused
to believe anything I say to them — always based on actual events — about politics and the growing
corruption and bigotry within the Democratic Party. Like those decent Germans in the 1930s, these decent Americans find
reasons to quickly dismiss what I say, without making any effort to find out if there is any merit to it. [...] At one point
I made mention to my brother, who remains a very typical Jewish liberal, the growing pro-Democrat partisan extremism of
modern American journalism, to the point of blackballing conservative writers. He immediately told me that couldn't be
true. When I then told him I have experienced this shunning personally because of my political positions, often
resulting in the loss of jobs and the rejection of my writing, he shrugged, giving me that same look of dismissal that I am
sure that German woman in 1930s Germany saw many times. What I said was simply too unbelievable to be true, even
though I had actually experienced it.
BLM Rallies in U.S. Call for 'Death to Israel, Death to America'. At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies
in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for "Death to Israel," "Death to America" and "From Gaza to Minnesota,
globalize the Intifada!" Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a "Day of
Rage" event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West
Bank and the Jordan Valley. Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and
anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the United States of America and
its "puppet governments," the liberation of "Palestine," and for Korea to "be one again."
You Really Believe Black Lives Matter, Stop Supporting Black Lives Matter. BLM, like the Women's March, has
from its start been ardently antisemitic. Members of BLM carried out a pogrom in the Los Angeles area in May during the
Jewish holiday of Shavuot. You probably never heard about it because in the intersectional left-wing milieu, Ashkenazi
Jews sit at or near the apex of the privilege pyramid. That is, the descendants of Eastern European Jews, 6 million of
whom were massacred during the Holocaust, are considered by BLM and its ideological cohorts to be the world's greatest
victimizers. For the like-minded media, covering such atrocities would only undermine the narrative and hurt the cause,
so they remain silent. For BLM, antisemitism is not a cancellable offense. As we have seen across America these
past weeks, like other left-wing, antisemitic movements, BLM justifies violence and resorts to it. Marxists using race
as a cover for revolution ought to be condemned for cynically exploiting the deaths of Americans. They are not
condemned, however, as too many people consider it politically unacceptable to do so.
Black Lives Matter's
Anti-Semitic Platform. Black Lives Matter, the revolutionary, anti-American and anti-Semitic movement at the
heart of the riots and the intellectual terror in the United States today first published its charter in August 2016. Jewish
organizations from left to right condemned it for its slanderous accusation against Israel which it accused of committing
"genocide: and claimed was an "apartheid" regime that had passed 50 discriminatory laws against Palestinians. BLM's
charter also endorsed and joined the movement to the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment and sanctions operation against Israel
and its American Jewish supporters.
The Oldest Hatred Rears
Its Head. It's been more than two days now since the New York Times opinion page, policed closely by the
paper's readers and employees for evidence of bigotry, published an op-ed that approvingly cites the black anti-Semitism
explained away in a 50-year-old essay by the writer James Baldwin. We've been waiting for the reference to spark some
sort of backlash and outcry from the paper's reporters, for the Twitter hashtag decrying the insensitivity, for the internal
finger pointing about who dropped the ball and allowed the publication of a piece that could make American Jews feel so
unsafe. Are you surprised to hear it never came?
Blasio Orders Gates Welded Shut at Jewish Park While Approving Mass BLM Gatherings. New York Mayor Bill de
Blasio ordered gates at a park in a Jewish area welded shut to keep people out despite simultaneously approving numerous mass
gatherings of BLM protesters. "Bill de Blasio is Welding the gates at the biggest park in the Jewish community,
(Borough Park, Brooklyn) So your child shouldn't try to break in," tweeted Joel Fischer. "While Hundreds of thousands
of people gathered yesterday at Brooklyn Museum."
Rioters Destroy New York, Cops Kick Jewish Families Out of a Playground. Jewish community leaders are
condemning New York Mayor Bill de Blasio for a "blatant double standard." He singled out the Jewish community in enforcing
coronavirus restrictions, yet defended protesters who violated social distancing rules in order to protest the heinous police
killing of George Floyd. In fact, videos showed police officers dispersing Jewish mothers and their children at a
playground while a larger group of protesters gathered in violation of lockdown rules.
Blasio Broke Up a Jewish Funeral a Month Ago — But Today Allows Thousands at George Floyd Funeral Service in
Brooklyn. In late April New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sent the NYPD in to break up the funeral for a
popular rabbi in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (Democrat) issued a warning to the "Jewish community"
that he would arrest them for gathering in public as they did for a rabbi's funeral in the Williamsburg neighborhood in late
April. [...] But today [6/4/2020] thousands of New Yorkers attended a memorial service for George Floyd. De
Blasio spoke at the funeral. The city is still under de Blasio's quarantine.
Blasio's Jew hunters nabbed Rabbis studying with masks. Why are Americans allowing this? Rabbis sitting a
distance apart studying — with masks — were busted by de Blasio's enforcement squad, which used to be
the NYPD. They used to arrest criminals, but no need for that now. New York City doesn't have criminals, they only have
victims who need reform. The Rabbis were given summonses up to $1,000. Even if you're not Jewish, even if you are
a Democrat, can't you see how wrong this is?
real reasons De Blasio and leftists target Orthodox Jews. New York Mayor De Blasio has shown his true blue
color in harassing Orthodox Jews in New York. The Mayor threatened to arrest those who gathered to bid a final farewell
to a religious leader. The Coronavirus pandemic has allowed blue state governors and mayors to follow Rahm Emanuel's
political advice to never let a good crisis go to waste. What people do not realize is that Emanuel's advice is based
on Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Red state governors are already beginning to open up their states for business,
while blue state leaders are locking down, clamping down, and cracking down hard.
Blasio's Tweet against Jews Is the Tip of the Iceberg. Mayor de Blasio of New York City recently tweeted what
has become a controversial tweet. After hearing of a large gathering of Chasidic Jews in Brooklyn attending a funeral
for a well known neighborhood rabbi, de Blasio tweeted: "My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is
this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even
arrest those who gather in large groups." While I don't think de Blasio is an anti-Semite, nonetheless, I would wager my
last subway token that he would never publicly tweet against the Muslim, Hispanic, or black community in the general terms he
did just now regarding the Jewish community. He was wrong to extrapolate regarding the entire Jewish community based on
something done by a subset — namely, the Chasidim of Brooklyn's Williamsburg and Boro Park sections.
Sanders would be 'most anti-Israel president in the history of this nation'. Making the case for U.S. President
Donald Trump's re-election, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned on Monday that if elected, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
would be the complete opposite of Trump as it pertains to the U.S.-Israel relationship. "We must ensure that the most
pro-Israel president in history must not be replaced by one who would be the most anti-Israel president in the history of
this nation," said Pence at the annual AIPAC Policy Conference, where he slammed Sanders for calling Israel "a racist state"
and defaming AIPAC as "a platform for bigotry."
and Those Who Support It. On March 6, 2019, Britain's Equalities and Human Rights Commission launched a probe
into claims that the country's Labour Party, currently led by the lifelong Trotskyite Jeremy Corbyn, is "institutionally
anti-Semitic". We are all too familiar with the development that the conflation of antisemitism and antizionism may be
found today within politics. Challenging this distortion remains a priority in Western countries. Fortunately, as
recent events within Britain's Labour Party have shown, many constituents are rejecting the overt antisemitism and
anti-Israel extremism of the groups who have often underhandedly taken control of their party. It increasingly seems as
if one source of antisemitism — as shown by more than one survey in Europe and in the United States —
is that there often seems to be widespread antisemitism within Muslim communities.
Tlaib to speak in Missouri at event for American Muslims for Palestine. U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.,
is scheduled to speak Saturday [2/29/2020] in Missouri at the annual gala of the state's chapter of American Muslims for
Palestine (AMP), according to the group's website. The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza St. Louis Airport
Hotel in Bridgeton, northwest of St. Louis. AMP is considered an anti-Israel group that has expressed support for
the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish State, the Jewish News Syndicate reported.
Imam at a Bernie Rally Had Called for the Destruction of Israel. When Imam Omar Suleiman appeared at a Bernie
rally in Mesquite, TX, the hateful Islamist cleric spoke in front of a backdrop of giant American flags and signs urging
donations to Sanders. Before Bernie took the stage, he called for an, "America where we uplift our most vulnerable,
celebrate our diversity." The Imam did not mention, as he has before, that he believes that, "Zionists are the enemies of
God." By "god", the Imam meant Allah. The occasion for that hateful outburst was Operation Protective Edge which
began after Hamas kidnapped and murdered three Jewish teenagers. One of them American.
Trashes 'Racist' Israel. Strong words; to my knowledge Bernie hasn't called any other U.S. democratic ally's
government or leader "racist." Although he says that he's "very proud to be Jewish and I look forward to becoming the first
Jewish president in the history of this country," he seems to single Israel out. But are his words true?
Happened When a Jewish Activist Confronted Tlaib's Jew Hatred at Rutgers. On Sunday [2/9/2020], Rutgers
University hosted the 14th Annual Interfaith Prophet Muhammad Conference. The speakers were Rep. Rashida Tlaib,
who had just falsely accused Jews of a blood libel, Craig Considine, a Catholic apologist for Islam who supports BDS, and
Imam Sayed Moustafa Al-Qazwini, an Iranian-trained Shiite cleric who had accused Israel of being behind ISIS. This panel
of Jew hatred was a project of Muslims 4 Peace promoting Islamic migration. But the founder of Americans Against
Anti-Semitism instead showed up to ask them some tough questions about hate. "What about your anti-Semitism?" Dov
Hikind, a former elected Democrat official who now takes on anti-Semitism in his former party, challenged Rep. Tlaib as
she declaimed about racism in America. Hikind was immediately confronted by a man in a keffiyah. Rutgers police
officers surrounded the founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism and escorted him out of the room for asking an elected
official about anti-Semitism at a state university funded by the taxpayers of New Jersey. The "Interfaith" Mohammed
conference had consisted of two Muslim panelists and one token Christian who spends much of his time promoting Islam and
bashing Israel. There had not been a single panelist of another religion.
Democrat Dov Hikind booted from Rashida Tlaib event: 'What about your anti-Semitism?'. Former Democratic New
York state assemblyman Dov Hikind was escorted by police out of an event featuring Rep. Rashida Tlaib after he shouted a
question about anti-Semitism. Ms. Tlaib, Michigan Democrat, was the guest speaker at an event Saturday [2/8/2020]
at Rutgers University, titled "A Global Crisis: Refugees, Migrants, and Asylum Seekers — Lessons from the
Prophet Muhammad," which was organized by the group Muslims4Peace, Fox News reported Monday. Mr. Hikind tweeted a
video of the moment when he interrupted Ms. Tlaib's speech and was immediately manhandled by an attendee and eventually
escorted out of the room by police. In the clip, Mr. Hikind is able to stand up and say, "What about your--,"
before a man comes up from behind and forcefully grabs him.
Agrees with Supporter that AIPAC is 'Unholy Alliance of Islamophobes'. Fading presidential candidate Elizabeth
Warren raised eyebrows among Democrats across the country this week; seemingly agreeing with a supporter who described the
American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, as an "unholy alliance of Islamophobes and White Supremacists."
"I'm terrified by the unholy alliance that AIPAC is forming with Islamophobes and anti-Semites and white nationalists," one
attendee began as Warren nodded in agreement.
Democrat Party's Third Rail: Israel. The 2020 election is presenting the electorate with Democrats of
both the extreme and "moderate" varieties who hold starkly different views than Republicans on America's relationship with
Israel. American Jews, who for decades have felt at home in the Democrat Party, are now facing a predicament as
Democrats become more comfortable taking anti-Israel positions and making statements previously unheard. When Obama
entered office, he made it clear that the new sheriff in town would insert daylight between the U.S. and Israel. He
distanced us from our most strategically important ally in the region and realigned diplomatic relationships while removing
the pax-Americana that had maintained stability for decades. What followed was eight years of a deteriorating
U.S.-Israel relationship as Democrats moved away from supporting Israel. This was on full display at the Democrats'
2012 convention at which thousands of delegates booed when leadership reinserted language in the party platform pertaining to
G-d and Jerusalem as Israel's capital. It was an omen.
Named 2019 Anti-Semite of the Year. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) was named the 2019 anti-Semite of the year
by an organization that seeks to combat the spread of anti-Jewish bias. The organization StopAntiSemitism.org chose
Omar, who has repeatedly spread anti-Israel and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, following a public nomination and voting period.
Left Goes Over the Edge. Anti-Semitism [...] has always been the last refuge of the political fanatic, and the
current murder campaign against American Jews over the past few weeks is no exception. These attacks have largely been
carried out by sheltered minorities, triggered by BLM and assorted Islamists, and egged on by the likes of Sandy O, Tlaib,
Omar, and De Blasio, whose People's Republic has hosted most of the atrocities. We can take some small comfort in the
fact that these campaigns often mark the last spasm of the movements carrying them out.
A Democrat Blames His Democratic
Party For Upsurge In Antisemitism; He's Right. Saturday night [12/28/2019] saw the seventh violent anti-Semitic
attack in recent days. A machete-wielding attacker stabbed five people in the home of Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg during a
Chanukah celebration in Monsey, New York. Perhaps the most honest reaction to the anti-Semitic attack came from a member
of the Democratic Party. Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind said what most pundits are afraid to say, the
Antisemitism originates with members of Mr. Hikind's own party, the Democrats: [Video clip]
War Against the Jews. Soros' Jewish problem was generational. He grew up in, in his own words, a "Jewish,
anti-Semitic home[.]" He had adopted his father Tivadar's worldview, that God was a human invention. It was
Tivadar who forged and sold documents to Jews trying to escape the Holocaust, charging "wealthy clients", as he put it,
"whatever the market would bear". And it was Tidavar who found his teenage son a place with a Hungarian fascist official who
was confiscating Jewish property. In his biography, Tivadar later described the trip to confiscate Jewish property as a
move by the "kind-hearted" Nazi collaborator to "cheer the unhappy lad up" where after a dose of watching the persecution of
Jews, "he quickly regained his spirits". Soros would later describe this, a period that most Jews remember as a time of
utter horror, as "the most exciting time of my life" or an "adventure".
liberals are allowing anti-Semitism to flourish. [Scroll down] "Anti-Semitism is an attack on the values
of our city — and we will confront it head-on," De Blasio tweeted after this latest round of violence against
Jews in the city. He has to stop beating around the bush. These attacks aren't an attack on "our values."
They're attacks on visibly Jewish people. Even Sunday [12/29/2019], after the Monsey stabbings, he blamed Trump and
"Washington" for creating "an atmosphere of hate." De Blasio needs to stop trying to find a "them" to be the opposite of
his "us." His juvenile obsession with having the right adversaries allows anti-Semitism to flourish.
Left Lines Up With the Terrorists. Britain's voters rejected soundly the Labor Party, whose former leader
Jeremy Corbyn has called Hamas and Hezb'allah terrorists "his friends" and for whom Hamas expressed reciprocal support.
Americans must similarly ostracize and marginalize politicians, organizations, and religious institutions that give tacit
support to Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezb'allah, and other terrorist organizations. There is a huge legal difference (no
criminal liability versus up to 15 years in prison), but little moral difference, between giving material support to
terrorists and seeking to damage Israel's economy through boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Jeremy Corbyn, supports BDS, as do Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and 14 other House Democrats.
So does Jewish Voice for Peace, which I call "Jews for Jihad."
Booker's statement on Jersey City slaughter doesn't mention Jews or antisemitism. New Jersey Senator Cory
Booker delivered a slap in the face of Jews everywhere with his statement on the horrific attack on his constituents in
Jersey City targeted because they were Jews. Not a word about Jews or Jew-hatred, or the spread of violence directed
against Jews. Nothing! Booker is traveling the same road as his buddy Barack Obama, who could only bring himself
to condemn "zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris," on the parallel targeted
slaughter of Jews in Paris at a kosher supermarket. They were not "randomly" targeted, and to pretend that Jew-hatred
was not the motive is dishonest and dangerous. Booker is equally irresponsible, using only the word "residents" to
describe the victims. At least he didn't call the slaughter random, but he gave no reason behind it, calling it merely
"senseless," as if there were no motive behind it.
Tlaib Headlined Anti-Semitic Hate Fest. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) was the keynote speaker at a
conference hosted by a Muslim organization that traffics in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and that counts among its
supporters many who seek Israel's destruction. Tlaib headlined the American Muslims for Palestine's (AMP) 2020 election
conference late last month in Chicago. The freshman lawmaker, known for her routine criticism of Israel and its
supporters, shared the stage with a who's who of leading anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists, including Bernie Sanders
surrogate Linda Sarsour.
Equals Jewish 'Supremacy': Linda Sarsour Again Stoops To Antisemitism. Former Women's March leader and current
Bernie Sanders campaign surrogate Linda Sarsour attempted to explain controversial comments she made at the 12th Annual
Conference for Palestine, which took place in Chicago this past weekend. True to her noxious brand, the
Palestinian-American activist compared Jewish self-determination to white supremacy in a full-throated speech that only a
hateful artist of her caliber could manage.
Democrats ignore Israel.
Last week, Israel once again faced a barrage of rockets from Gaza while most of the mainstream Democratic candidates whistled
and looked away. Candidates don't have to comment on every event happening around the world, but the silence of much of
the Democratic field feels like more than passing disinterest. And when Vice President Joe Biden offered even a bland
message of support for Israel that would have been unremarkable a few years ago, he got massive pushback from the left on Twitter.
Raheel Raza: 'I
will Not Be PC About Anti-Semitism'. There has been mass immigration to the West from countries that have
institutionalised anti-Semitism and teach hatred for Jews even in their school curricula. So those who have grown up on
a diet of hate and conspiracy theories bring this ideology with them. We are witnessing this from elected
representatives south of the border in America. With the rise of immigration patterns, the demographics have
changed. Western politicians are not only ignoring the rise of anti-Semitism but siding with those who perpetuate
it. Adding insult to injury, the Left and Islamists have joined hands to weaponize anti-Semitism. Islamist
organizations host the hateful Al Quds Day rally in major cities. Recently, there has been an increase of anti-Semitic
attacks by neo-Nazis and white supremacists, who are now using the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Socialism becomes the anti-Semitism
of the enlightened. [Scroll down] Today, the Socialist International, which once honored former Israeli
President Shimon Peres as one of its leaders, is a bastion of the BDS movement and therefore opposes the Jewish state's
existence. Sanders embodies the irony that the man who stands a chance of becoming the nation's first Jewish or
Socialist president is someone who gave up the practice of Judaism and is not supportive of Israel. Nor is it
irrelevant to point out that the greatest enemies of Israel and the most blatant purveyors of anti-Semitism in our political
system, like AOC's fellow "Squad" members Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.),have endorsed him.
a List of 100 Members of Congress Supporting CAIR. Ahead of the Council of American-Islamic Relations' 25th
Anniversary Gala event last Saturday, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization boasted that "120+" members of Congress had
sent them letters of support. We never saw those letters, however, thanks to Clarion reader Viola Rose, we were
directed to a list of 100 members of Congress who voiced their support of CAIR in 2018. The list was published by the
Investigative Project on Terrorism, along with the letters of support. The list includes Democrat presidential
candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar. Ninety-seven out of the 100 names on the list were Democrats;
three were Republican.
Democrats Call for Conditioning Military Aid to Israel. At the J Street conference last week, Sen. Bernie
Sanders (I., Vt.) demanded that Israel "fundamentally change" its approach to terrorist-controlled Gaza, adding, "I think it
is fair to say that some [U.S. military aid to Israel] should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza." Israeli officials
believe such moves would enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war.
Omar Knows Exactly What She is Doing When She Engages in Antisemitic "Dog Whistles". [Scroll down] Nope,
I believe Omar is very cunning and knew exactly what she was tweeting and implying. I posit she deliberately
tweets and says things that can be interpreted as being antisemitic, because knows she can turn any accusations of
antisemitism around and go on the counter-attack with accusations of Islamophobia and racism against her detractors.
and CAIR. In 2018, Democratic lawmakers and a few Republicans openly supported the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR), congratulating the organization on its 24th year of operation. Furthermore, sixteen likely Democrat
presidential candidates are endorsing CAIR. For instance, "Elizabeth Warren sent in a video message threatening to cut off
aid to Israel unless it surrenders to Islamic terrorists. Then she promised to divide Jerusalem, turning half the ancient
holy city into a killing ground for the murderous terrorists already occupying Gaza and portions of the West Bank." Thus,
the majority of the 2020 Democrat presidential field have aligned with CAIR, an anti-American and anti-Israel organization.
Moreover, it is now patently clear that the "Democratic party's celebration of Linda Sarsour... exposes the poison" that has
enveloped the party.
Releases Brutal Ad Hitting Democrats For Anti-Israel Agenda. The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) announced on
Monday [11/4/2019] that it was kicking off new campaign ads to re-elect President Donald Trump by hammering Democrats for
"turning their backs on" and "threatening" Israel. "The RJC, which is backed by billionaire GOP donor Sheldon Adelson,
has spent millions over the past two presidential elections, leading the Republican Party's outreach to Jewish voters," Axios
reported. "In April, the RJC board authorized its largest ever campaign budget: $10 million."
Lowlife Jew-Hater Sharpton Says Trump Needs
To Fight Antisemitism. If there is a Nobel Prize for mendacity or an Oscar for hypocrisy, this statement by Al
Sharpton would get the award. This scumbag who calls himself a Reverand and a Human Rights leader has spent a lifetime
spreading Antisemitism but never acknowledged or apologized has the nerve to talk about the need for Trump to fight
Jew-hatred. Just the fact that he mentioned Antisemitism gave me the creeps.
Will Not Abandon the Democrats, Even as the Democrats Abandon Them. Nothing seems to dissolve the sinew that
ties Jews to the Democrats. President Obama's association with the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright brought a
collective yawn. Photos of Barrack Obama embracing the Rev. Louis Farrakhan, who compared Jews to termites, did
not concern them. The anti-Semitic diatribes of the so-called "Squad" have been dismissed as a minority voice among the
Democrats that would be easily controlled by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The House resolution condemning boycotts,
divestment, and sanctions against Israel was showcased for having been passed, while ignoring that of the 17 votes
against it, 16 came from Democrats.
Camp Includes Hatred of Israel. Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels purportedly said, "Accuse the other side of
that which you are guilty," a principle the Democrat Left puts into practice with unfounded accusations that Donald Trump
supports racism, white nationalism, and anti-Semitism. The anti-Israel organization If Americans Knew praised Democrat
front-runner Elizabeth Warren by stating, "She said 'yes' to pressuring Israel to end the occupation. Keep saying yes,
and add some teeth to it." The same web page adds, "Israel has been a 'foreign policy problem' for years, but also —
especially recently — it has become a diplomatic albatross around America's neck." The political Left, rather than
Donald Trump, has a problem with our fellow democracy Israel to the extent of excusing, ignoring, and whitewashing behavior similar
to that of which they accuse Trump: Palestinian discrimination against and even physical abuse of women, religious minorities,
and LGBT people.
Warren issues a threat to Israel over Palestinian land!. Senator Elizabeth Warren is saying she's open to
making aid to Israel conditional on whether the government ceases settlement building in the West Bank. Speaking to
reporters on Sunday [10/20/2019], Warren said by increasing settlements, Netanyahu does not move in the direction of a
Warren warns she may cut off US aid to Israel if elected. Did Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., just touch
one of the third rails of American politics? Speaking with reporters in Iowa, the 2020 Democratic presidential
candidate stated that if she becomes president, cutting off U.S. aid to Israel is a very real possibility if Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu does not stop building settlements in the West Bank. Warren was asked if she would make U.S. aid
conditional on settlement building and she was unequivocal in saying that "everything is on the table." Democrats are
searching for quid pro quo, how's that fit the bill?
Warren on Israel aid:
'Everything is on the table'. Senator Elizabeth Warren is saying she's open to making aid to Israel conditional
on whether the government ceases settlement building in the West Bank. Speaking to reporters on Sunday [10/20/2019],
Warren said by increasing settlements, Netanyahu does not move in the direction of a two-state solution.
Squad Obtains Antisemitism Cloak In Endorsing Bernie Sanders. Three of the four members of the infamous
all-female House "Squad" are gearing up to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for the 2020 Democratic presidential
nomination. While Rep. Ilhan Omar has formally expressed her support for Sanders' candidacy, reports indicate that
Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are expected to publicly throw their weight behind the 78-year old
Vermont senator soon. Omar's ringing endorsement letter was shared by the official "People4Bernie" Twitter page late
Tuesday night following the primary debate. It highlighted the various projects Omar and Sanders are working together
on — including legislation to "cancel" all student debt and provide every student in America "free" breakfast,
lunch, and dinner (words such as "cancel" and "free" are friendly euphemisms the left uses to justify forcing people to pay
for others' expenses).
Sanders's Anti-Semitic Surrogate. Senator Bernie Sanders's announced last week that Palestinian-American
activist and Women's March co-chair Linda Sarsour would be joining his presidential campaign as an official surrogate.
Sanders is in a fierce competition with Senator Elizabeth Warren and other Democrats for the votes of the party's left-wing
base, which united behind him in opposition to Hillary Clinton four years ago. So it says something important about the
tone of the nomination battle that Sanders and his team think Sarsour will help them more than her baggage will hurt
them. Sarsour became a celebrity in the months after Trump's election as one of the organizers of the Women's March,
which mobilized the "resistance" to the new administration even before it took office. The group gave her a prominent
platform, but from the very start of the massive anti-Trump rallies that launched it on the day after Trump's inauguration,
it was clearly tainted by anti-Semitism.
Rashida Tlaib Met with Members of Terrorist-Supporting, Pro-Palestinian Group. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)
recently met with members of the terrorist-sympathizing, anti-Israel group Palestine Youth Movement, according to a picture
on social media featuring the lawmaker with supporters of the organization. The Washington Free Beacon first reported
on Tlaib's visit with members of the group. It reportedly took place at the Arab Texas Festival of Dallas, according to
social media posts.
Jews Are in Total Denial about the Democratic Party. Not a day goes by without Jews being shot in their
synagogues, stabbed, bludgeoned by blocks, physically attacked, pushed to the ground, spat on, and cursed; without graffiti
on the walls of Jewish institutions, graffiti on the walls of synagogues; without victims killed, maimed for life,
traumatized, hospitalized, extended rehabilitation. [...] American Jewry, being so closely associated with the Democratic
Party, seem to suffer from perpetual numbness. It seems as if almost no one in the Democratic Party will stand up for
American Jews despite the obligatory calls for tolerance, yet any real action is clearly missing and not a part of the public
discourse concerning the epidemic of anti-Semitic attacks throughout America.
Anti-Zionism Is Anti-Semitism.
Progressives — those who view mainstream liberals as too centrist and moderate — have a bizarre,
illogical obsession with Israel and Zionism, one that causes them to invoke conspiracy theories about the Jewish state
controlling media, banks, even American foreign policy, and to portray Israel as the most wicked country on earth. The
core feature of anti-Semitism is accusing Jews of cosmic evil. How is accusing the only Jewish state of cosmic evil not
anti-Semitic when that state is, in reality, a vibrant, tolerant democracy and when, by all relevant standards, other
countries are far more deserving of such condemnation? History shows that anti-Semitism is a virus that mutates with
time to conform to what is socially and culturally acceptable: Falsely describing the Jewish people as devilish and
guilty of mass slaughter is deplorable today, but describing the Jewish state in such terms is fine — in
some circles, even woke and intellectual.
Herald Columnist Echoes Farrakhan's Antisemitism, Smears Jewish Conservative as 'Termite'. Miami Herald
columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr., used what many conservatives and Jewish leaders are saying is an antisemitic attack against
those working to expose the media, calling in a just-published column those involved in the effort, such as GOP strategist
Arthur Schwartz, "termites." Schwartz, the only person Pitts, Jr., names as involved in the effort, is a Jewish
conservative and ally of President Donald Trump. The use of the word "termites" echoes antisemitism from Nation of
Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has recently used the word to attack Jewish people.
Zeldin: New York Times' Double Standard [is] 'Crushing Their Credibility'. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY)
charged on Sunday that the New York Times' double standard on racism and antisemitism is "crushing their credibility."
Zeldin lashed out at the New York Times in the wake of a Breitbart News investigation which found that the newspaper's
politics editor Tom Wright-Piersanti wrote racist and antisemitic comments on Twitter. The Times admitted Sunday
[8/25/2019] that the comments were racist and antisemitic. The paper also admitted that Wright-Piersanti's remarks were
in "violation" of its standards.
York Times Admits Editor's Comments Were Racist and Antisemitic. The New York Times has, several days
after Breitbart News first exposed politics editor Tom Wright-Piersanti's racist and antisemitic comments on Twitter,
admitted the comments were in fact racist and antisemitic. A piece the New York Times released on Sunday
[8/25/2019], which described a broader operation of loosely organized supporters of President Donald Trump fighting back
against the media with aggressive new tactics, was the first time the newspaper in its own pages addressed the scandal
Continue Normalization of Anti-Semitism. Democrats have been continuing a long trend of normalizing
anti-Semitism in their party. Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib had been leading the charge on Capitol Hill to
deploy anti-Israel legislation with the goal of weakening Israel. They put forth legislation to support the abominable
Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, whose ultimate goal is to handcuff and damage the Middle East's sole
democracy. It's so noxious that it drew the fire of even liberal Bill Maher. The two congresswomen followed up this
action by announcing a trip to a nonexistent "Palestine," knowing that Israel would have no choice but to reject their request.
flashback that isn't: EU set to require warning labels on Jewish products. Some Americans may find modern
day concerns about anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli sentiment overblown, especially if they haven't experienced some centuries
of religious discrimination. Such concerns typically appear when Israel is in the news, as it is this week by denying
entry to a pair of Muslim congresswomen. Now, comes the European Union with a clever idea to add consumer warning
labels to products from Israel as being from that Jewish state. No, seriously. Of course, this is not the first
time Jews have been singled out for such public alerts.
Rashida Tlaib's "grandmother"
trick — nice try. Some of us remember it as the excuse we gave for playing hooky for class or for
work, "I had to go visit my sick grandmother." It's always been the classic routine to gain sympathy, and no one does
it better than BDS-flavored Palestinian Arabs, or more cynically than Rashida Tlaib, who was elected to represent Michigan's
13th congressional district, largely Detroit. Imagine the surprise, among voters, to listen to her say, "When I won, it
gave the Palestinian people hope..." Wasn't she elected to give the "Michigan people hope?" [...] Then what about
grandma? She seems awfully spry at 90 for someone living under "oppression." It is a statistical fact, by the
way, that Arabs living under Israeli "oppression" live longer, healthier, happier lives than anywhere in the Arab world.
On Losing or Saving
our Country. There is no Democrat(ic) Party anymore. It has gone full-tilt to the Socialist/Marxist/Communist/Islamist
etc. party. And, it appears that all of the Socialist Democrat Party — the Democrat Party has already died and been
buried — leaders have achieved the level of total corruption, now, with their anti-Semitic and anti-Christian screeds.
California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu accused US Ambassador to Israel of dual loyalty and not supporting the USA when he said that his
"allegiance should be to America, not to a foreign power." This followed the ambassador's remarks in support of Israel's decision
to bar entry to two anti-Israel congresswomen, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib." Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono defended the anti-Semitic
speech of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) and accused the GOP of "hate speech" for criticizing the Congresswoman. [...] There are many more
Democrats who appear to be "converting" to the new and regrouping and regrowing religion of anti-Semitism each day. This bespeaks
a growing extremely ominous for our country.
Be Thrown by the Left Wing-Islamist Alliance. Why are some of the most famous names in the Left wing in America
today aligning themselves with Islamists, the Muslim religious Right? Islamists believe in things no sane Left winger
would ever endorse: strict gender roles, the authority of scripture over human reason and law, and a rigid hierarchy based on
religious faith and practice. The Left wing is largely atheist and opposes any sort of governmental role for clerics.
Yet Left wing socialists like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez routinely rub shoulders with Islamist apologist Linda Sarsour.
Omar and Rashida Tlaib's Shameful Lie-Fest. In case you missed it, congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib
hosted a press conference yesterday [8/19/2019], to speak about their banning from Israel. As expected, it was an
Israel bashing-fest, replete with lies.
Pelosi is surrendering the Democratic Party to the Jew-haters. A historic transition of the American political
landscape is underway, as the older of our two parties is embracing antisemitism and moving away from support of Israel,
driven by the personal ambition of a craven politician clinging to power. Nancy Pelosi's desire to remain Speaker of
the House is why she is surrendering the Democrats' party to the Jew-haters, with the highly visible, openly antisemitic
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib becoming the real face of her party.
Democrats [are] Now Lining Up to Punish Israel on Behalf of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Last week the Israeli
government officially announced Democrat Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib would not be allowed to enter the country
due to their pro-BDS activism. Israel has a law that bars those engaged in the movement, which is aimed at eliminating
the country, from admission. However, Tlaib was granted a humanitarian visa to visit her grandmother in the West Bank,
which she turned down. [Tweets] Also keep in mind the organization sponsoring Omar and Tlaib's trip celebrates
suicide bombers and the murder of Israeli children.
The Unmasking of BDS. After
fourteen years of being lulled by propagandists into believing that their boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign (BDS)
is a human rights movement, we're finally waking up to the deception. The U.S. House last month overwhelmingly passed a
bill opposing BDS efforts to target and delegitimize the State of Israel. Last February, the Senate passed a bill,
never taken up by the House, legalizing the right of state governments and employee benefit plans to refuse to do business
with companies boycotting Israel, thereby protecting the 27 states with anti-BDS legislation. Concerned about BDS
similarity to Nazi boycotts and incitement of anti-Semitism becoming "the breeding ground for escalations to violence," the
German parliament recently passed a resolution declaring BDS anti-Semitic.
Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib Share Antisemitic Cartoon by Participant in Iran's Holocaust Denial Contest.
Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) both reportedly shared an antisemitic cartoon by an artist who
participated in Iran's Holocaust denial contest on their respective Instagram accounts on Friday, according to Forward editor
Batya Ungar-Sargon. Ungar-Sargon noticed that Omar and Tlaib had each shared the image on their Instagram "stories."
Both were barred from entering Israel Thursday because of their support for the "boycott, divestment, sanctions" (BDS) movement.
Democrats will retaliate after Israel block of Tlaib and Omar: Report. Reports on Saturday indicated that
House Democrats could be interested in pursuing retaliation against Israel's decision to block Reps. Ilhan Omar and
Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. Senior congressional Democrats are said to be considering legislative action
against Israel's ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer and David Friedman, the U.S. ambassador to Israel. Sources
told McClatchy that close to 12 Democratic lawmakers are considering action against Dermer and Friedman for their
roles in blocking the congresswomen from traveling to Israel.
Has Every Right To Block Rashida Tlaib And Ilhan Omar. Israeli officials have decided to block U.S. Reps.
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering their country, a reversal of policy that President Donald Trump seems to have
prompted. Should Israel have taken the high road and issued the duo visas for their propaganda visit? Probably.
It usually does in these cases. Allowing foes to enter the country reflects the strong liberal values that make Israel a
unique place in Middle East. However, the notion that obstructing the two anti-Semitic terror apologists from entering
Israel is an attack on liberal democracy, or the United States, or that such a move is accelerating the corrosion of the
Democratic Party's support for Israel, is absurd.
Omar, Tlaib's 'Sole Objective' for Trip Was to 'Harm Israel'. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said
the "sole objective" for Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) and Ilhan Omar's (D., Minn.) trip to Israel was to deny the
country's legitimacy in a lengthy Twitter thread explaining the decision to deny them entry into the country. "Only a
few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole
objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel's legitimacy," the prime minister's official account tweeted.
Omar and Rashida Tlaib Partnered with Vicious Anti-Semites to Plan Their Trip to Israel. To the extent that I
care at all about Israel blocking entry to two U.S. congresswomen who partner with anti-Semites who seek its destruction, I
agree with critics who argue that Bibi Netanyahu should not appear to bow to Donald Trump's tweeted demands and that blocking
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting Israel handed them a short-term propaganda victory. But that's not the most
important part of the story. The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen
shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on an independent trip to Israel sponsored by vicious
anti-Semites. Another important element of the story is that, as of today, the mainstream media have whitewashed Omar
and Tlaib's vile associations.
what Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were going to do on their trip to Israel and the West Bank. By now it seems
clear that Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are not going to be visiting Israel or the Palestinian areas of the West
Bank. Israel's government announced Thursday that it would not allow the Democratic congresswomen to make their
scheduled visit this weekend because both have declared support for the Israel boycott movement. A 2017 law entitles
the state to deny entry to boycott activists.
Rashida Tlaib rejects Netanyahu's terms and forgoes trip to visit grandmother. Rep. Rashida Tlaib will
forgo a trip to see her aging grandmother in the West Bank after the Israeli government said it would allow a visit on
"humanitarian" grounds. In a reversal, Tlaib rejected the conditions laid out by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu for the humanitarian visit, namely, that she not broadcast her support for boycotting Israel over its actions
against Palestinians during her stay.
The Editor says...
Mr. Netanyahu doesn't need my advice, but I would deport the grandmother!
BDS against Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib and their anti-semitism. Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are
not welcome in Israel. The congresswomen were seeking to tour the West Bank and East Jerusalem, according to the
country's deputy foreign minister. The decision to bar entry was made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Foreign
Minister Israel Katz and Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan.
Sanders threatens to 'leverage' US aid to combat Israel 'racism'. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., threatened
Tuesday to use billions of dollars in aid to Israel as "leverage" to combat what he called "racism" from the Jewish state's
government, while going so far as to compare America's Israel alliance to its relationship with Saudi Arabia. Sanders,
one of the leading candidates in the Democratic presidential primary race and an increasingly vocal critic of the Netanyahu
government, said during a New Hampshire town hall event that the U.S. should take a broader view of the Middle East —
and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular — and not always side with Israel.
Al Sharpton is not a lifelong fighter for justice.
Al Sharpton — who should still be seen as a notorious hate figure but has somehow escaped that fate —
practically tripped over himself trying to get Trump's attention. It worked. "Al is a con man, a troublemaker,
always looking for a score," Trump tweeted. "Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates
Whites & Cops!" Then ensued one of the more depressing news cycles of the year, as major Democratic presidential candidates
praised Sharpton to the heavens. [...] Calling Sharpton a lifelong fighter for "justice" ignores his history of race-baiting and
deadly anti-Semitic incitement.
You, Representative Ilhan Omar. As a congressional representative, Ilhan Omar has masterfully manipulated
American freedom in order to make anti-Semitism a more accepted idea. She has admirably done the work of the Muslim
Brotherhood in normalizing anti-Semitism in the land of the free. By cloaking the evil as merely an expression of her
freedom of speech, she has removed the "racist portrayal of Jews from the neo-Nazi fringe into the mainstream." She has
mastered the art of psychological warfare as she couples "Muslim anti-Semitism with the American left's vague notion of
'social justice.'" She has shown her bona fides as a representative of the jihad on free speech while vigorously claiming
this vital freedom. As Ayaan Hirsi Ali notes, Omar hails from Somalia, where anti-Semitism is taught at an early
age. Thus, she was taught that to destroy the Jews, the Zionists, and the state of Israel is a worthy goal.
Omar: American Congresswoman or threat to America? Ilhan Omar is either the most admired or vilified
member of Congress. You like her or you don't. She is totally anti-American or just what America needs.
There is a good reason for the mixed response to the pixieish Somalian. Those that support the Somali immigrant see her
as a fighter and agree with her goal of transforming the US into a socialist country. To others, Ohmar hates America,
white men and people of Jewish heritage. She is a supporter of Islam and Palestine. Omar is an anti-semite,
proven by her BDS resolution.
Tapper Questions Rashida Tlaib About BDS, Israel's Right To Exist. When I hear Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)
speak, I can't believe she was ever elected to public office. The Palestinian-American Congresswoman recently
co-sponsored a resolution in the House with her great pal Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to support the anti-Israel Boycott,
Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Last week, she was one of 17 lawmakers to vote against a House resolution to
condemn BDS. She compared the BDS movement to the American boycott of Nazi Germany. Tlaib spoke to Jake Tapper
on CNN's "State of the Union" this morning. Even Tapper was a bit ruffled by several of Tlaib's replies.
champ Ilhan Omar powers her website through Israeli company. Jew-hating Rep. Ilhan Omar has a hypocrisy
problem. She was last seen sponsoring a boycott-divest-sanction (BDS) measure against Israel in Congress to try to free
the path for pressure groups to force boycotts of Israeli products onto leftists the next time one of them feels it's
necessary to virtue-signal. Her measure failed miserably, but not on account of supposed logic. Actually, she's a
pretty impressive hypocrite. Here's what someone, probably in Israel, spotted about her website, according to Breaking
Israel News: ["]Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D, MN), who introduced legislation that seeks to protect those who want
to boycott, divest and sanction (BDS) Israel, uses an Israeli company to power her own website.["]
CNN Personality's Antisemitic Tweets Unearthed: 'I Love You Hitler'. Another CNN personality who was presenting
on the CNN Arabic network as recently as last week appears to have expressed a series of antisemitic sentiments on Twitter,
even praising Hitler. This follows the recent resignation of a CNN editor, whose past antisemitic statements surfaced
vs. Alan Dershowitz. Alan Dershowitz is a lifelong liberal, but in recent years he has diverged from the
left-wing line on a few issues, including Israel and, to a degree, the Trump administration. That has brought the
knives out. Liberal anti-Semites, in particular, are out to get him. The New Yorker, a disgusting rag, has been
"researching" a hit piece on Dershowitz for some time.
Editor Resigns After History of Antisemitism Resurfaces. An editor at CNN has resigned after a series of
antisemitic comments he made resurfaced on Thursday. [...] CNN's statement accepting the resignation of the editor makes
clear the editor had worked at CNN for some time, and had made the antisemitic statements back in 2011.
Left So Despises Donald Trump. The far-left faction of the Democrats, led by congresswomen Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, have with this big, very white, rigorously politically
incorrect billionaire, what they believe, tactically and by uncontainable impulse, is the target of their political
dreams. Mr. Trump is the personification of every policy they hate and every human trait they despise; to them, he
is a monster of ignorance, greed, bombast, bellicosity, and racist bigotry. [...] All four of them qualify as
anti-Semites. As has been widely mentioned, the president is doing what he can to help make these four the best
publicly known face of the Democrats.
Passes Anti-Boycott Israel Resolution by Large Margin; Three of 'The Squad' Vote No. The U.S. House of
Representatives on Tuesday night passed by an overwhelming margin a resolution opposing the anti-Israel boycott, divestment
and sanctions (BDS) movement, with three of the four Democratic freshmen known as "the squad" voting against the majority of
their colleagues. Sponsored by Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.), and co-sponsored by almost 80 percent of the House
(175 Republicans and 174 Democrats), H.Res. 46 passed by 398 votes to 17. The measure opposes the BDS movement,
calls on Israelis and Palestinians to resume direct negotiations, reaffirms support for the so-called "two-state solution" to the
conflict, and — in response to a key complaint of opponents — affirms U.S. citizens' constitutional right
to free speech.
Fawning of Omar Has Made Her More Aggressive. Most of the Jewish community has feverishly and piously supported
last week's Democrat-sponsored Resolution condemning President Trump's remarks against Ilhan Omar. Omar, of course, is
a notorious, unrepentant anti-Semite and daily demonizer of Israel. But she has become, for many Jews, a heroine, a
civil rights star, a noble cause. Enjoying such support, Omar rewarded the Jewish community by immediately announcing,
after the Resolution's passage, a piece of legislation demanding that Congress vote in favor of BDS against Israel and her
Throw Her Out. The four Congressional
vipers now known as "the [Odd] Squad" came to Washington this January, swinging. Two of them came swinging at Jews
right away. Rashida Tlaib is a Jew-hater with a long resume and Twitter history to document that hate, and with a
filthy mouth to boot. The "M-F" word she used to describe the President of the United States — my president,
your president, and her president — instantly defined her as trash. In this country, even if you do not like
the president — even if you despise him to your utmost innermost core, as I despised and still despise Obama —
he still is your president. I never have used such a word to describe Obama. Tlaib reflected herself as trash by
speaking in such a way about the president of this country. Ilhan Omar is a vicious Jew-hater, an anti-Semite.
I often describe her as a Nazi. Not all Nazis murdered Jews or even touched Jews. Some just lined the streets
to cheer Hitler's passing motorcades. Her litany of anti-Jewish tweets by now is legendary.
Omar proposes resolution supporting boycott of Israel. US Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week
supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet
Union. Omar's resolution seeks to push back against US laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of
Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they wish. While the resolution doesn't explicitly name Israel
or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns
the Jewish state.

Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the
Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Omar's resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws

Omar Pro-BDS Bill Compares Israel To Nazi Germany. Democrats can't stop arguing that any criticism of
Rep. Ilhan Omar is a victim any time that she's criticised. Meanwhiile none of her anti-Semitic antics merit
criticism. Like introducing a pro-BDS bill that compares Israel to Nazi Germany.
Admin Tackles Rising Anti-Semitism. The Trump administration is working on multiple fronts to investigate and
combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism in America that top officials warned is spreading across the country via a network of
far left, anti-Israel activists, who seek to mainstream hatred against Jews at the nation's college campuses and
elsewhere. During a daylong conference, the first of its kind for this administration, senior administration officials
from across the government gathered with legal experts and scholars to address the growing threat of anti-Semitism, which has
resurged in America and across the globe in recent years.
McCaul on Antisemitism in Congress: 'Omar Has to Go'. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said on Monday [7/8/2019] at the
Christians United for Israel summit in Washington, DC, that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) should be removed from the House Foreign
Affairs Committee for her antisemitic remarks about Israel and the Jewish people. McCaul, who is ranking member on the committee,
made the remarks in an interview with Michelle Makori, anchor and editor-in-chief at the Israeli news outlet i24 NEWS.
are eating their friends as well as their enemies. [Scroll down] Speaker Nancy Pelosi is constantly being
undercut by House Dems who want to impeach Trump yesterday, making her look weak and leading her to make wild accusations of
criminal conduct against Trump to prove she also hates the president of the United States. Others in her caucus,
especially rookie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are pushing Pelosi to the left with their nutty Green New Deal, which would
destroy the economy if enacted. And the two Muslim women in Congress, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, keep infuriating
many of their fellow Dems with their obvious hatred of Israel.
Levin Lights Up Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Like a Christmas Tree at Chernobyl. This Democrat Party is a horrid
party. It is a party of hate. It is a party of racism. It's a party of anti-semitism. It's a party of
un-Americanism, which perhaps explains why the media are attached at the hip to the Democrat Party. There is a
revolution taking place. Over the years I've called it a counter-revolution to the American revolution. It's been
going for a hundred years and you're seeing its progeny right now. The Democrat Party has always been a hateful
party. Slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and now today. If you're an anti-semite, you can find a home in the
Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is the modern home to anti-semitism. As I said, this party has become a
poison. It's the party of the New Left and the old Reds.
attack group targets top Dem — who voted with her 96% of the time but criticized Omar. A far-left
group backed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is supporting a political newcomer to unseat a 30-year Democratic New York
congressman who called out Rep. Ilhan Omar over anti-Semitism. Justice Democrats, a group that initially recruited
Ocasio-Cortez to run against former Rep. Joe Crowley, is targeting Rep. Eliot Engel. The candidacy of Jamaal
Bowman, a 43-year-old public middle school teacher, was put forward by Justice Democrats in a continued effort to elect more
progressive Democrats to Congress, the New York Times reported.
The Editor says...
Who is Jamaal Bowman? Two minutes of research turned up this, from November 9, 2015:
says standardized testing is 'modern-day slavery'. In an online rant, a Bronx public school principal has
likened standardized testing to slavery, redlining and crack cocaine in damaging the lives of minorities. "Public
school high-stakes standardized testing is a form of modern-day slavery, and it is designed to continue the proliferation of
inequality," Cornerstone Academy for Social Action Middle School Principal Jamaal Bowman says in an Aug. 31 blog entry titled
"The Tyranny of Standardized Testing." "America was born of horror for black people and that horror continues today for
brown and poor people as well. Slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, crack cocaine and now standardized testing were all sanctioned
by the American government. All designed to destroy the mind, body and soul of black and brown people."
of Antisemitic Attacks in US and The Antisemitism Most Won't Dare Talk About. In the past year or so, there
have been a spate of antisemitic attacks in the US, especially NYC. [Numerous video clips] Do you notice a pattern
with these attacks I have highlighted? Without putting too fine a point on it, the perpetrators have all been African
Americans. And it is no coincidence. This uptick in Black attacks on Jews coincides with an escalation in the
rhetoric of prominent activists in the intersectionality movement. Activists like Linda Sarsour who compares "Zionists"
to "White supremacists[.]"
in America is an apolitical cancer. Anti-Semitism is a serious and deadly disease in the United States.
And in many ways, it is getting worse. Anti-Semitic attacks neared a new record last year as assaults against Jews more
than doubled, according to the Anti-Defamation League. Just last year alone, there were 1,879 recorded attacks on Jews
and Jewish institutions, the most notable being a deadly mass shooting by a white supremacist at a synagogue in Pittsburgh
that left 11 people dead and more injured. There is a sickness in this country that our leaders must work to
heal. Some have risen to the occasion. Others, sadly, have fallen far short of the mark.
The Editor says...
The writer goes on to say, "Anti-Semitism is a cancer that plagues both the American Left and the Right."
But the only example in the whole article of antisemitism coming from the political right was David Duke.
With the exception of that one politician, antisemitism always comes from the political left.
America Experiencing Europe's Growing Anti-Semitism? Is America experiencing Europe's growing anti-Semitism?
That was the central question at the Hudson Institute last Tuesday afternoon. As Hudson Institute CEO Ken Weinstein noted
in opening remarks, it's a question we never thought we'd have to ask. Yet, in 2019, it's an unavoidable, even urgent
question. After deadly attacks in Pittsburgh and Poway, along with openly anti-Semitic rhetoric in the U.S. Congress and
anti-Semitic imagery in The New York Times, the climate has clearly changed.
Gay Pride March Bans Israeli Flags, Allows Palestinian Ones. A Washington gay pride parade is banning
participants from brandishing Israeli flags, Israeli pride flags, or any "pro-Israel paraphernalia" during its event on
Friday [6/7/2019]. Yael Horowitz, a Jewish organizer of the D.C. Dyke March, said organizers had decided to ban
"nationalist symbols," including flags and banners that represent "nations that have specific oppressive tendencies."
Palestinian flags would be allowed, however, the Forward reported.
March bans Israeli and Jewish Pride flags; Palestinian flags still OK. The D.C. Dyke March, which is being
billed as an all-inclusive celebration of underrepresented people, is banning Israeli and Jewish Pride flags but allowing
Palestinian flags during Friday's [6/7/2019] event. The march, which is returning to Washington after a 12-year hiatus,
is seeking to be more radical than its previous version, including LGBTQ people of various races, religions, socioeconomic
classes and gender identities, organizers told The Washington Post.
The Editor says...
How odd. They banned Israeli flags to avoid representing certain people at an event that's all about under-represented people.
don't want no Jew state," shouts Leftist speaker in the middle of Times Square. Public displays of virulent
Jew/Israel hatred by Muslims and their useful idiots from the far left aren't only in 'Dearbornistan' in Michigan, but also
in the heart of New York City, home to the country's largest Jewish population. Yet NYC Commie Mayor Bill De Blasio
still insists that ALL anti-semitism is coming from the right.
whitewashing on anti-Semitism. Here's what's been happening in New York City over the past year: Jews who
are visibly Jewish have been getting assaulted in record numbers. We've seen numerous videos of these assaults, in
which a bearded man in a yarmulke is smashed in the head or knocked down or otherwise physically set upon by one or two
African-American men. We've also seen videos like the one in which Rabbi Uriel Vigler took care to photograph the
menacing conduct of a man who followed him along an Upper East Side street, taunting him and then calling him the "devil"
as he fled once Vigler pointed him out to the security guard at his synagogue. Don't worry, says our mayor —
the real danger Jews face is from the right wing.
Ilhan Omar To Join
Black-Jewish Caucus Despite Repeated Allegations Of Anti-Semitism. The office of Democratic Minnesota
Rep. Ilhan Omar revealed Thursday she will be joining the House's newly formed Black-Jewish Caucus. A spokesman
for Omar confirmed to Jewish Insider that Omar intends to join the bipartisan committee a day after the Minnesota
congresswoman expressed her support for it on Twitter. [...] Omar, and fellow Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan
became America's first Muslim congresswomen and their time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism and
to Blame for Rising Anti-Semitism? As anti-Semitic incidents proliferate in Western Europe, the burning issue
seems to be: who is to blame? Should we all blame right wing populists like the German AfD and the French Marine LePen
or should we blame the politicians, like German Chancellor Merkel, who opened her nation to Muslim anti-Semites?
Obviously, the leftist media is spinning as fast as it can. It's true enemy is the radical right, and thus, anything
bad must be the fault of the right.
Out Anti-Semitism Isn't 'Islamophobic'. irginia State Delegate Ibraheem Samirah is the poster child for a new
crop of Democratic politicians. He's young, charismatic, and very progressive, with a history of activism that began in
his student days on the campuses of Boston University and American University. Samirah has spent his brief time as a
Virginia delegate hawking a "Green New Deal" for Virginia in the Washington Post. But Samirah also has a history
of shockingly antisemitic and virulently anti-Israel statements and troubling associations, and he doesn't take kindly to
those who point it out.
Group Applauds Rep. Ilhan Omar's CAIR Speech, Calls Pro-Trump Protesters 'Fascists. Rep. Ilhan Omar
(D-MN) spoke on Saturday [5/25/2019] at a Washington branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser in
Seattle, Washington, where security was tight and protesters showed up in support of Omar and others came to condemn her
antisemitic remarks. On Monday, Liberation, the Newspaper of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, announced it was
behind the pro-Omar protests.
Calming Feeling as Jew-Hate Now Takes Deeper Root in the Democrat Party. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has logged tomes
of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish tweets and rhetoric. Those tweets initially outraged Democrats no less than they did
Republicans. And then the Democrats started counting votes. [...] The initial outrage felt among Democrat leaders when
Omar and Tlaib tweeted Nazi tropes is no more. The turning point came when the Democrats prepared to condemn
anti-Semitism within their ranks, then learned that they could not pass such a resolution, that the Old Timers had lost
control of the ship, that the new trope driving discrete small but influential primary voting blocs is that Israel and Jews
do not fit into the world of contemporary Intersectionality. Rather, as the vile Jew-haters who lead "The Women's March"
have demonstrated, Israel-hatred and Jew-hatred is cool. The Left has adopted hatred of Israel as a new sacrament.
Talib and the Democrat sanctioned Revision of Democrat history. [Scroll down] Unfortunately, her
clarification and early comment taken at face value present other problems every bit as severe. For one thing, Talib's
claimed sympathy for Jewish victims of the Holocaust comes up rather empty, particularly inasmuch as her own website supports
BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction of Israel). According to the Jerusalem Post, BDS has connections with the
terrorist group Hamas which calls openly for the complete and utter destruction of Israel. Talib also wrote a column
for Luis Farrakhan's publication in 2006. While she claims that is not an endorsement of the man, any association
at all should raise eyebrows. After all, Farrakhan calls Jews "termites" and says Hitler was a "great man."
Islamization of Minnesota Media. [Scroll down] Before even being sworn in, [Ilhan] Omar began making her
demands, specifically that the longstanding rule banning the wearing of head coverings on the U.S. House floor be overturned
so she can appear in her hijab. That change to a 181-year old rule is part of a package of rules changes introduced by
Democrats, to be voted on in January 2019. Additionally, Omar already has appeared on the cover of Time magazine,
been a guest on several late-night television shows, and is active on the CAIR fundraising circuit, both on behalf of herself
as well as fellow Muslim candidates. Minnesota media consistently decline to report on these activities. Omar,
however, allegedly has violated Minnesota House ethics rules by taking honoraria from schools that she oversees in one of her
legislative capacities. Alpha News was the news outlet that broke the story and a fellow House member brought the
violations to the wider public. The evidence is strong that Omar intentionally timed the filing of her disclosure
reports with state authorities in order to avoid being found out while the legislature was in session. She's somewhat
infamous, of course, for allegations of committing immigration fraud by marrying her brother. This too was a subject
that local media only reluctantly covered, giving her every benefit of the doubt and not asking probing questions. The
best examination of her sham marriage came from Powerline's Scott Johnson and Alpha News' Preya Samsundar.
The former has credited the latter with uncovering the strongest evidence that Omar married her brother by combing through
various social media accounts. Those accounts were quickly deleted or made private when Samsundar's reporting became known.
is Al Sharpton, inciter of Crown Heights, speaking at a Jewish conference in Washington? The disgraceful
decision by the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism to have Al Sharpton speak this morning at a plenary session of its
conference in Washington, D.C., (titled "Consultation on Conscience") sends a very dangerous and intolerable message to the
anti-Semites among us. Anti-Semitism is on the rise, not just in the form of shouts or graffiti but also the murder of
Jews. It is thus incomprehensible how the Religious Action Center could have ever made this decision.
Rally Round Their Anti-Semites. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and the Democratic Party leadership
defending her indefensible comments on the Holocaust are now promoting the Big Lie about Arabs as innocent victims of World
War II. Nazism was widely popular among Palestinians, who played a key role in the Holocaust. Adolf Eichmann himself
went to Cairo to train the Muslim Brotherhood in anti-Semitic propaganda, military sabotage, and terrorism —
launching the modern jihadi movement in the process. Without Arab Nazism, 6 million Jews would not have been murdered.
Rashida Tlaib Reaps
the Rewards of Anti-Semitism. If you harbor any doubts that the Democratic Party has fully embraced anti-Semitism,
you can put them to rest by tuning in to C-SPAN and watching the replay of a single congressional session that began at
3:30 p.m. Wednesday [5/15/2019]. The representative standing at the Rostrum, proudly presiding over the floor
proceedings for the United States House of Representatives was none other than Rashida Tlaib. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer have gone beyond their disgraceful defense of Tlaib's grotesque distortions of Middle East
history and have decided to rub the electorate's face in a calculated exercise in bigotry.
With Love. Congresswoman Rashida Talib has been in the news as a result of a Yahoo News podcast in which she
participated. The podcast, titled "Skullduggery," is an anti-Trump hatefest. This episode began with the hosts
discussing the desirability of impeaching President Trump. Then they welcomed Tlaib as a guest, and talked about
impeachment some more. (Tlaib is an enthusiastic advocate.) Next they turned to foreign policy, specifically the Middle
East. This is where the interview turned controversial. Numerous Republicans, including President Trump, have
denounced Tlaib's comments, some because they interpreted them as anti-Semitic. The majority view, however, is the
one expressed by Paul, who termed Tlaib's musings on the Middle East "not anti-Semitic" but "blatantly false."
Calm Feeling about the Holocaust. Nothing very new here. A Democratic Congressperson utters some
blatantly anti-Semitic remarks. Republicans denounce her. Democrats rush to defend her... on the grounds that her
remarks were taken out of context. You see, it's the context that matters and only the context.
The Rot Is Irreversible. Disease is reversible —
rot isn't. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib brought the disease of anti-Semitism into the upper echelons of
the Democratic Party when they were elected in November. The party could have fought the disease. It chose
instead to nurture it. And that's when the irreversible rot set in. The rot explains why Democrats, from Speaker
of the House Nancy Pelosi on down, are vigorously defending Tlaib's recent lies about Arabs welcoming Jews after the
Holocaust. It doesn't matter what Tlaib or Omar say, how blunt their Jew-hatred is, or how often it's aired. A
defense pact is already in place that covers all calumnies against the Jews. Both the Democratic leadership and the
liberal media establishment will back these bigots against any and all charges of anti-Semitism in return for smooth
relations with the social-justice left. It's a monstrous deal made by people too weak to defend their party and speak
Tlaib's Lies Remind Us Why Israel Must Exist. During a recent SkullDuggery Podcast on Yahoo!, Rep Rashida Tlaib
dropped a few historically illiterate thoughts on the Holocaust and Israel. None of it was especially surprising to
anyone who's followed far-left or Palestinian rhetoric for any amount of time. For Tlaib, the Holocaust was primarily a
tragedy for the Palestinian people, who were unable to repel Jews' immigration and stop the formation of a Jewish
state. Her words are a helpful reminder of not only why Israel exists, but also that the tragedy of the Palestinian
people is neither the fault of the Jews, nor the British, nor the Holocaust. Tlaib offers two important revisionist
claims: The first revolves around the contention that Palestinian Arabs were not only welcoming of the Jews, but
actually sacrificed their own dignity and lives so Jews could be safe. The second revolves around the notion that Jews
were, or would be, safe under Palestinian rule.
Rashida and her homies are complaining about people taking her words out of context and using them to stoke racial hatred for
political reasons. To be clear, that technique is only acceptable when applied to a President you don't like.
The Rantings of Rashida.
For once, I find myself agreeing with the contemptible Rashida Tlaib, the freshman Democratic representative from
Michigan. Her vile comment that she gets a "calming feeling" when she thinks about how Palestinians allegedly offered
refuge to Jews fleeing the Holocaust indeed was "twisted" and "taken out of context," as she tweeted over the weekend.
In fact, what she said in a May 10 podcast interview is much worse — and it wasn't a gaffe or even an
example of her propagating the myth that Palestinians aided European Jews after World War II. Tlaib knew exactly what she
was talking about.
Florida Democratic Party's Own Muslim Anti-Semite. Anti-Semitism is quickly on the rise within the Democratic
Party, and the poster children for it are two high-profile freshmen US Representatives, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida
Tlaib of Michigan. Florida, too, has its own Democrat Islamist anti-Semite, anti-Israel activist Rasha Mubarak.
Mubarak is on a mission to destroy the Jewish state, Israel, and she is taking the Florida Democratic Party with her.
Omar Viciously Attacks Liz Cheney For Calling Out Tlaib's Anti-Semitism. On Monday [5/13/2019], after Rep. Liz Cheney
(R-WY) (who is fearless in calling out anti-Semitism) had properly called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her latest display of
it, Tlaib's good friend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Cheney with a tweet that was both vicious and self-pitying, ranting,
"Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didn't want to vilify! Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be
a tool to rally your base, but won't get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal."
Tlaib Says She Gets a 'Calming Feeling' From the Holocaust. Democratic Party Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-MI)
has said she feels a "kind of calming" when she thinks about the Holocaust, according to her own words from a new episode of
the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery. [...] Asked about her position on the latter, she explains her support for a "one state
solution" — a proposal also backed by terrorist faction Hamas. While Tlaib explains she does not believe in
violence like Hamas does, she explains around the 28 minute mark that she gets a "kind of calming feeling" when thinking of
the violent murder and extermination of six million Jews: [...]
of Representatives' opening prayer given by militantly anti-Semitic preacher. A Muslim cleric who called for
violence against Israel and expressed support for Hamas gave the opening prayer before the House of Representatives Thursday
[5/9/2019], angering several representatives. Omar Suleiman, an imam and president of the Yaqeen Institute, delivered
the invocation at the invitation of his congresswoman, Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, according to the
Jewish Telegraph Agency. Republican New York Rep. Lee Zeldin, who is Jewish, decried the invitation in light of
the fact that Suleiman has repeatedly called for a third Intifada against Israel, referred to Jews as "Zionists" and called
them "enemies of God," and defended the terrorist organization Hamas on social media.
Pence Calls for Ilhan Omar to Be Removed from House Foreign Affairs Committee. Today [5/10/2019], in an
interview with Fox News, Vice President Pence called on the Democratic House leadership to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar
(D-Minn.) from the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee. "Ilhan Omar has made statements, anti-Semitic comments
against our most cherished ally, Israel, that ought to be rejected by every American," Pence said in the interview.
"And frankly the fact that very recently, she's been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and the
poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela tells me ... Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has no place on the House Foreign
Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her."
Rashida Tlaib Attacks Fellow Democrat As A 'Bully' Over Meeting To Discuss Anti-Semitism. This story is about a
meeting between Democrats which took place back in February. Rep. Josh Gottheimer and Rep. Elaine Luria held
a private meeting with Rep. Rashida Tlaib to express their concern about some of the things she (and others) had said
which were deemed anti-Semitic. Yesterday, the Intercept published a story in which Tlaib claimed that during the
meeting she realized Rep. Gottheimer was a "bully."
Omar Boasts: I'm Trump's 'Biggest Nemesis'. Speaking with The Huffington Post, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who
has made numerous anti-Semtic and anti-America remarks, bragged that she is President Trump's "biggest nemesis." Omar
boasted, "This is a president who has come to power because he was very much willing to vilify and demonize immigrants and
refugees. He so proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country. He clearly has a disdain for black
women who see themselves as equal to him. And so, for many people, it's not a surprise that he finds his biggest
nemesis in me. Clearly, I am a nightmare — because he can't stop really thinking about ways that he can
continue to use my identity to marginalize our communities."
Crenshaw Pushes Back at 'The View' Hosts: Yes, What Omar Said About 9/11 Was Awful. Conservative congressman
Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) knew he was sitting down at a majority liberal coffee table on "The View" Monday morning [5/6/2019], but he
willingly debated the hosts on his ideals, a certain controversial freshman lawmaker, and, of course, President Trump. Since
entering Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has uttered a string of what many would call anti-Semitic remarks and has also made
an outrageous comment about September 11, which she defined as, "some people did something." Crenshaw shared his frustration
with her rhetoric on Monday and Democrats' inability to call her out. He mused that while some Democrats may disagree with Omar
behind closed doors, in public they are "playing a team sport." Even the party's attempt to pass an anti-hate resolution
ended up being watered down because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently didn't want Omar to be singled out.
Jasser: 'Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Are Normalizing' Radical Islamism. [Alex] Marlow invited Jasser's
comments on a Friday report of a video depicting Muslim children wearing Palestinian attire and singing jihadist songs and
shared on the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia's (MAS Philly) Facebook page. "People see these
clips and they think it's just an aberration or a one-off," said Jasser. "Even the bizarre Philadelphia Enquirer had
the temerity to have a reporter report after this was going viral that the heads of the school said this was an oversight and
it wasn't properly vetted. The only thing that wasn't properly vetted was that some parent posted that."
The One in Every Generation. In the past few years a virus-like, anti-Israel malady has been brewing on college
campuses across the United States. It has targeted pro-Israel, Jewish students, faculty members and speakers brought on
campus to educate anybody willing to listen about Israel realities. In the beginning, the confrontations appeared
relatively civil. However, as coverage by press and television crews expanded, the rhetoric appeared to intensify.
The hostile exchanges that followed were largely ignored by campus authorities among others. Characterized as "mere"
anti-Israel policy actions, angry protestors could be heard spouting recognizable anti-Semitic characterizations, some laced
with intimidation and some with violent threats.
Rashida Tlaib's Loyalties Do Not Lie With America. She Just Made That Explicitly Clear. The usual
suspects came out in support of the people who launched rockets at Israel over the weekend. Sadly, it is not surprising
to see the likes of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) or Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) siding with terrorists. It
should, of course, be surprising — shocking, even — for members of the United States Congress to
express such views, but we are far past being shocked over terror-sympathizing among Democrats.
Omar, Rashida Tlaib Stand with Iran Over Terror Attacks in Israel. Controversial Democrats Ilhan Omar and
Rashida Tlaib have stood with Iran's regime in support of Palestinian terrorists attacking Israel.Minnesota Rep. Ilhan
Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, two of three Muslim members of Congress, expressed their support for the rocket
attacks against Israel over the weekend.Since Friday, the Palestinian terrorist groups Islamic Jihad and Hamas fired over 700
rockets into Israel during unprovoked terrors attacks.
Anti-Semitic Swine Blame Israel for Terrorist Attacks. There's little in this world that evokes a more visceral
reaction in me than bigotry and racism, which is why the two evil, anti-Semitic sows in Congress — Ilhan Omar and
Rashida Tlaib — bring out my worst, most enraged persona to the surface. This weekend, the terrorists in
Gaza decided to violate yet another ceasefire and began a wholesale attack against Israeli civilians. [...] HAMAS and PIJ
went on the offensive in Israel, lobbing more than 600 rockets at innocent Israelis, provoking a decisive response from the
Israel Defense Forces (IDF), who attacked 350 HAMAS and PIJ targets, including rocket launch sites, terrorist operatives,
HAMAS cyber offensive sites, weapon storage facilities, and military compounds. Israel's restrained response brought
out the virulent, anti-Semitic sows Omar and Tlaib, along with their sister in Jew hatred Linda Sarsour, who instead of
standing in solidarity with innocent people being attacked by terrorists, immediately trotted out the "poor, put upon
Omar Wrongly Refers to Gaza as 'Occupied'. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) wrongly referred to Gaza as "occupied"
in a tweet supporting Palestinian terrorists against Israel on Sunday [5/5/2019], as hundreds of rockets were fired at
Israeli civilian population centers, killing four Israelis.
Is Ilhan Omar's Collusion With Islamists Acceptable? Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has distinguished
herself with often offensive, outrageous, and unpatriotic rhetoric. One week she invokes classic anti-Jewish
tropes. The next she trivializes the September 11 jihadist attacks. Another it is unearthed that she espouses
morally relativistic if not overtly anti-American views about U.S. soldiers, the very ones who fought to defend civilians in
her native Somalia to boot. Omar's penchant for provoking millions of Americans with odious words has masked the
related, equally if not more troubling, elements of her associations, ideology, and background.
New York Times and the Climate of Anti-Semitism. [Scroll down] Before the second cartoon hit the wires,
Times opinion writer Bret Stephens called out the paper for its anti-Semitic cartoon while describing the accusation
that the Times was purposefully anti-Semitic as a "calumny," a false and despicable accusation. Stephens'
colleagues rose almost immediately to deny the Times' obsession with depicting Jews in the vilest ways, its
description of the Arab/Israeli conflict as resting solely on the shoulders of Israel, and its role as a bully pulpit for the
emergent anti-Semitism of the left. Despite years of documentation of these trends by Honest Reporting and
Algemeiner, Stephens' colleagues dismissed his observations as fantasies. Fantasies? This is a newspaper
that attributed the measles outbreak in New York City to Orthodox Jews. While the views of Orthodox Jews on vaccination
are perfectly fair game, it is interesting that the Times barely noted outbreaks in other communities that have
resistant attitudes toward vaccination — such as the Amish or the Somalis in Ilhan Omar's congressional
district. Rather it is the historic Jew as the transmitter of disease and the infamous black death that the
Times seizes upon.
anti-Semitism festers in online sewers — and the pages of The New York Times. The San Diego
synagogue shooter was self-radicalized on a right-wing message board on the website 8chan, posting before he went on his
rampage a thank-you to the board's users: "What I've learned here is priceless." The attack, which killed one and
injured three, came six months to the day after the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11. The
San Diego shooter declared the Pittsburgh shooter — also a creature of fringe internet culture — one of
his heroes. Anti-Semitism is a millennia-old phenomenon, and anti-Jewish shootings in the US aren't new, either
(several occurred while George W. Bush and Barack Obama were president).
Der New York Stürmer.
The New York Times? How about more accurately calling it Der New York Stürmer? This despicable
anti-Semitic publication has been attacking Jews mercilessly for more than half a century. Now its Jew-hatred has been
translated into pictures for those neo-Nazis of the Left and Right who have difficulty keeping up with words that are spelled
with letters. In a vicious, unforgivable cartoon over the Passover holy season, the international edition of Der New
York Stürmer published a cartoon depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog — a dirty
Jew dog — with a big Jewish Star of David hanging from its neck. Get it? Jew dogs?
Get it? A Star of David? Get it? Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) surely got it.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) certainly got it.
Omar Allowed To Talk To Elementary Students Behind Closed Doors — Parents & Press Allegedly Not Allowed.
On Friday [4/26/2019], jihad Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) visited elementary and middle school students in Minneapolis, but allegedly,
parents and the press were allegedly not allowed to attend. However, not to miss a moment in the spotlight without any serious
questioning of her clear Islamic agenda, Omar posted video of her arrival at Anne Sullivan Community School. "One of the best
parts of my job. It's so rewarding to be back in-district visiting with dedicated staff and curious students," Omar wrote on
days after synagogue shooting, Buttigieg kisses anti-Semite Al Sharpton's ring. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
D-Calif., boasted this month that there is "no taint" of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. She may want to tell
that to her colleagues, especially the 2020 presidential candidates, many of whom continue to kiss the ring worn by noted
race hustler and anti-Semite, Al Sharpton. On Monday [4/29/2019], just two days after a gunman opened fire at a San
Diego synagogue, killing one and injuring three others, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg dined with Sharpton in New
York. The two spoke at length about the upcoming presidential election and homophobia in churches and faith-based
Peculiar Progressive-Islamist Alliance. After Congresswomen Ilham Omar's and Rashida Tlaib's incendiary
anti-Semitic rants directed at Jewish Americans and American ally Israel, the Democrat House "progressive caucus," led by
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, rallied around to protect and support them. The progressive media chimed in, supporting the
Islamist congresswomen. Even after Rep. Omar dismissed the 9/11 attacks as "someone did something," Democrat
progressives defended her, accusing the president of religious bigotry when he objected. Not to be outdone, the ever
more progressive and pro-Islamist New York Times published a political cartoon that even they admit is anti-Semitic,
as well as an article claiming that Jesus was a Palestinian, which was applauded by Ilhan Omar! The anti-Semitic
congresswomen and media were right in tune with the powerful "Women's March" leaders, who allied with notorious anti-Semite
Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, calling him "The greatest of all times."
Dem Senators Sell Out Jewish Terror Victims to Restore Cash to Islamic Terrorists. [Scroll down] Last
year, the Palestinian Authority informed the United States that the terror group would no longer accept any aid from the
United States that would expose it to ATCA lawsuits. The terror group's letter suggested that it might revisit its
refusal if the law were changed. That's just what 6 Democrat senators, led by Senator Dianne Feinstein have set out to
do, using the false claim of a humanitarian disaster. "President Trump's refusal to provide humanitarian aid to the
Palestinian people is a strategic mistake," Senator Feinstein claimed, accusing him of "denying funding for clean water,
health care and schools in the West Bank and Gaza." Senator Chris Coons urged that, "It is critical that we restore
lifesaving aid to the West Bank and Gaza." Senator Jeff Merkley insisted that, "Aid to innocent civilians should not be
caught up in broader geopolitical battles. We can and should restore aid to children and other vulnerable populations
at the same time as we stand steadfastly by Israel's security." But the real agenda revealed by their resolution shows
that it's not about humanitarian aid, but about restoring funding to the Islamic terrorists of the Palestinian Authority.
Omar Attacked US Soldiers Who Died Fighting in 'Black Hawk Down' Operation. A newly unearthed tweet shows
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar attacking the U.S. soldiers who fought and died in the Battle of Mogadishu.
"In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day!
#NotTodaySatan," Omar wrote in a tweet in October 2017, uncovered Monday [4/22/2019] by John Rossomando of the Investigative
Project on Terrorism. Omar was responding to another tweet about the Battle of Mogadishu, a 1993 humanitarian operation
by the U.S. military that sought to save starving Somalis by preventing food and aid from being captured by enemy combatants.
Caucus In The House. Representative Ilhan Omar is a Minnesota Democrat who has been in Congress four months
and, courtesy of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she has privileged access to
classified American secrets. Omar recently caused a stir — one of many that have made her a focus of national
attention — by describing the attack on America on 9/11, as an attack on Muslims. The 9/11 attack — the
worst by foreigners on American soil since the British burned the White House in 1814 — was in fact the work of Islamic
supremacists engaged in a global jihad or "holy war." This war had been unilaterally declared on America —
"the land of Jews and Crusaders" — by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist army, al-Qaeda three years earlier. Omar's
reference to the tragedy that befell Americans in September 2001 was revealing in itself. She prefaced it by complaining
that Muslims in America were "second class citizens" who were denied the civil liberties afforded to other ethnic and religious
groups. This was one of many lies in her brief comments.
Tlaib Hosted Activist Who Called Palestinian Terror Attack 'Heroic'. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.)
hosted an extremist anti-Israel activist who has openly and explicitly endorsed terrorism at her congressional office in
mid-April to celebrate the American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day. The organization American Muslims for Palestine
(AMP), which organized the meeting, posted a photo on its Facebook page of Tlaib standing next to Joe Catron, a veteran
anti-Israel activist who has openly praised various Palestinian organizations for committing acts of terrorism.
Begin Refunding, Rejecting Donations From Ilhan Omar. Democrats in the House of Representatives have started to
reject and refund campaign donations from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over Omar's anti-Semitism scandal and her recent
trivialization of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Washington Free Beacon reported on Wednesday [4/17/2019] that the
reelection campaign for Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA) left a $2,000 contribution from Omar off its quarterly fundraising report,
and, when pressed by the Free Beacon, admitted that they left the money off the report because they decided to reject it.
The Congresswoman From Somalia.
If a politician of Japanese extraction were addressing a "largely Japanese-American audience" and characterized the December 7,
1941 attack on Pearl Harbor as "some people did something," would you think that those words diminished the loss of life and of
property suffered by our country 78 years ago in the Pacific Ocean? I would, but apparently Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
(D-Minn.) would not. She thinks it is a perfectly respectful — and accurate! — way to refer to the
9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. by 19 Muslim terrorists in 2001. She characterized the 9/11 attacks in
this way just last month to a largely Muslim audience saying, "some people did something." What the terrorists did, for
those who might have forgotten, was murder 2977 people, injure countless thousands more, and cause billions of dollars of
Gabbard: Trump, 'Al-Qaeda's Big Brother,' Turned U.S. into 'Prostitute' of the Saudis. A presidential
campaign video by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) in which she calls President Donald Trump "al-Qaeda's big brother" in Syria
caught the eye of Iran's state-run PressTV on Wednesday [4/17/2019], which highlighted her "Twitter attack" in defense of
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). President Trump called Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to the U.S. House of
Representatives, "extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country" this week after video surfaced showing
the lawmaker describing the September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda attacks as "some people did something" at an event hosted by the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
'We have no taint' of anti-Semitism in the Dem party. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed claims by President
Trump and asserted that there is "no taint" of anti-Semitism within the Democratic party. Pelosi slammed President
Trump for being "bankrupt of any ideas" in his accusations of an anti-Semitic agenda by the Democratic Party, staunchly
defending her party and freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar during an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
Rep. Ilhan Omar a Victim. It isn't so obvious that rhetoric produces violence, but we are within our
rights to ask which unhinged leftist incited James Hodgkinson to open fire on a softball team made up of Congressional
Republicans. Obviously, no one cares any more, but still. Now, the armies of the left are out in force defending
poor put upon anti-Semite, Rep. Ilhan Omar. You know about Omar, she of the repeated insincere apologies.
Along with her partners in crime, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Tlaib, she has made the Democratic party the epicenter
of American anti-Semitism.
Surface Revealing 2017 'Closed-Door' Meeting Between Rep. Ilhan Omar and Turkish President Erdogan.
Conservative Review reporter Jordan Schachtel recently came upon an interesting tidbit in the Tusmo Times, a publication that
covers the Somali community in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, area. He found a story there by the Somali-language paper's
founder and editor, Abdirahman Mukhtar, about a "closed-door meeting" that took place in New York City in September 2017
between visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a then-relatively unknown Minnesota state representative named
Did Obama Import a Somali Muslim Congressional District for Ilhan Omar to Represent? [T]he Democrats couldn't
bring themselves to pass a resolution denouncing anti-Semitism. Until, that is, they'd diluted the resolution by
including almost every other kind of prejudice, including the made-up, politicized crime of "Islamophobia." It had just a few
exceptions. White people, males, and Christians are not included among the groups that Congress forbids you to hate.
That exclusion is telling. It tells you that the ideology reigning today has no interest in fairness. Or even in
fighting hate. It wants to direct that hate toward acceptable targets.
Awful People. Ilhan Omar, the well-known anti-Semite and freshman Democratic Congresswoman, makes the list this
week, in part for her declaration that "Stephen Miller is a white nationalist." Miller is Jewish, which might have something
to do with Omar's hatred of him, so proclaiming him a "white nationalist" is particularly hilarious. Not that she'd let
something like reality bother her. But it's not just her Tourette's-like radar for hating Jews, but the casual way in
which she referred to the September 11th terror attacks. "Some people did something," she told a group at a Council on
American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser. It's hard to say what they did, or why, but know that these random people
woke up one morning and decided to do whatever it was they did and, as a result, "all of us were starting to lose access to
our civil liberties," she told the group. [...] She doesn't mention which civil liberties she and her audience lost, mostly
because there aren't any, but she thinks she's the real victim in all this "something" that happened.
O'Rourke's Israel Comments Are Astoundingly Bad And Only Help Antisemitic Radicals. Former Texas Congressman Robert "Beto"
O'Rourke has proven he's willing to jump in radical camps when it comes to various issues, but the latest one falls in line with a
problem of antisemitism that the Democratic party has been having lately. To be clear, I'm not accusing O'Rourke of being an
antisemite himself, but he seems to be playing right into their hands. According to O'Rourke Israel is too in league with
Republicans and following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu down a bad path because, as O'Rourke claimed, Netanyahu is racist.
says Dems have let anti-Semitism 'take root' in their party. President Trump said Saturday that Democrats have
allowed anti-Semitism to "take root in their party and their country" as the party's base is pushing it to the left and to
positions more critical of Israel. "They've become the party of high taxes, open borders, late-term abortion, crime,
witch hunts and delusions, and now the Democrats have even allowed the terrible scourge of anti-Semitism to take root in
their party and in their country," he said in a speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas. "They've
Protesters Interrupt Trump Speech to Jewish Republicans. A group of protesters — at least one of
whom was wearing a swastika T-shirt — interrupted President Donald Trump's address to the Republican Jewish
Coalition (RJC) on Saturday before being ejected by security. The demonstrators clambered on top of their seats in the
ballroom at the Sands Expo and began chanting slogans against the Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank. (Israel
considers the area, which Jews calls Judea and Samaria, to be "disputed," not "occupied.") At least one of the
protesters, who happened to stand up a few rows in front of this reporter, was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a
swastika — perhaps intended ironically, since some of the protesters unfurled a banner against "white
Sorry You're Offended,
But 'Palestine' Does Not Exist. In progressive America, an official elected in a predominantly Jewish district
in the country's largest city can be punished for asserting an indisputable historical fact if it happens to offend the
sensibilities of hard-left activists. In this case, Kalman Yeger, a councilman from Brooklyn, in a back-and-forth about
Rep. Ilhan Omar, tweeted that, "Palestine does not exist. There, I said it again. Also, Congresswoman Omar
is an antisemite. Said that too." Mayor Bill de Blasio quickly issued an ultimatum to Yeger demanding he
apologize, or else. After he refused, NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson booted Yeger from — what I assume is
a wholly useless — city immigration committee. "I found Council Member Yeger's comments completely
unacceptable..." Johnson explained. "They were dehumanizing to Palestinians and divisive, and have no place in
New York City."
Tlaib on Obama Meeting: He Told Me 'I'm Proud of You'. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) revealed Thursday
[3/28/2019] that former President Barack Obama said he was "proud" of her during a meeting this week with House Democrat
freshmen in Washington, D.C. "President Obama met with us new members of Congress and it was a thoughtful discussion.
The best part was when he looked straight at me and said, "I'm proud of you," Tlaib wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of her
posing with the former president.
Rhodes Blames Jewish Donors for Obama Not Being More Anti-Israel. Ben Rhodes, a former national security aide
to President Barack Obama, told the New York Times this week that the "donor class" had prevented Obama from taking
more anti-Israel steps than the administration had wanted to take. Rhodes spoke to author Nathan Thrall for a feature
article titled, "How the Battle Over Israel and Anti-Semitism Is Fracturing American Politics." The headline describes
"politics," but Thrall focused on policy debates within the Democratic Party, which has seen the rise of an assertive
anti-Israel constituency in recent years.
Many Are Ignoring the Rise of Anti-Semitism on the Left. During the last two years, the media have been reporting
about a rise in anti-Semitism. When the media write and speak about it, their focus is almost exclusively on "right-wing"
anti-Semitism. Most of the establishment Jewish organizations, well known for their political liberalism and identification
with the Democrat Party, similarly focus on anti-Semitism from the right and give only rare lip service when anti-Semitic writings
and attacks come from the political left. (The Ilhan Omar case is a mild exception, though not generating anywhere near the
determination and demonization if she had been from the political right). As each day goes by, guided by their own left-wing
outlook as well as the hit-lists coming from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the category "right-wing" has expanded to include
almost anything conservative or nationalistic, so that even expressed love of many aspects of America's historic culture can confer
on one the status of "white supremacist," i.e., anti-Semite.
Licensed to Ilhan.
I am unwilling to surrender this deep and true sense of the blessings of the United States to the grotesqueries of a freshman
member of Congress who wants the world to believe that the Jewish people are working behind the scenes to silence her and
people with her views — using their $100 bills ("all about the Benjamins") as lure and bait. If what Ilhan Omar says she
believes about the Jews were true, she would be sitting in a Twin Cities living room in deserved obscurity, left to rot there
by the very conspiracy she claims is so powerful. If the Jews were indeed "hypnotizing the world," as Omar claimed in
2012, then Israel wouldn't be the subject of more hostile United Nations resolutions than every other nation on earth
combined. And if moneyed American Jews were so powerful that they could successfully suppress views hostile to
Israel, she wouldn't ever have gotten to Washington in the first place.
Harris mobbed on Twitter after meeting with California AIPAC leaders. Despite not attending this year's
American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference, California Sen. Kamala Harris met with California
AIPAC leaders in her Senate office Monday, much to the dismay of critics of Israel, many of them progressives. [...]
American-Israeli relations and AIPAC have also faced increased scrutiny from the left after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)
criticized American politicians for supporting Israel with language that many deemed anti-Semitic.
March Leader Apologizes for Sharing Post Blaming 'American Jewish Establishment' for New Zealand Shootings.
Women's March co-chair Bob Bland shared a Facebook post last week blaming the "American Jewish Establishment" for the deadly
attacks at the two New Zealand mosques, but later apologized by blaming her two kids for her not being "mindful" when sharing
the post. Bland shared a Facebook post by Jesse Rabinowitz, a social justice advocate, that likened the language used
against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) to that used against the 54 Muslims who were killed in New Zealand, according to the
Jerusalem Post. "The same language and hate that folks spew against Sisters Linda Sarsour and Rep. Ilhan
Omar (D-Minn.) killed 54 Muslims in New Zealand. You can't stand in solidarity with the Muslim community and
simultaneously disavow Muslim women for speaking their truths. American Jewish Establishment, I'm looking at you," the
Facebook post read.
to AIPAC: Democratic Lawmakers, Politicians Mainstreaming Anti-Semitism. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
declared on Monday that growing anti-Semitism across the globe, including in the United States, will not be tolerated by the
Trump administration and that efforts to delegitimize Israel will not be tolerated, according to comments before a pro-Israel
crowd at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) annual gathering in Washington, D.C. Pompeo, in some of
his clearest remarks on the rise of anti-Semitism worldwide, said that anti-Zionism is tantamount to anti-Semitism, despite
claims from many on the far-left that attacks on Israel are not anti-Semitic in nature. With freshman Democratic
lawmakers like Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), and others trying to turn support for Israel into a
partisan fight, Pompeo told AIPAC that "anti-Semitism is a cancer metastasizing again in the Middle East, in Europe, and here
in the United States."
Omar and the New Flock of Congressional Doves. For the cover photo on its current issue, Rolling Stone
gathered together House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-CT), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) under the headline "Women Shaping the Future." The inclusion of Omar was bold given the
controversy over her repeated anti-Semitic remarks and how Pelosi stumbled in her attempt to separate the Democratic party
from them. Yet, Omar's views have long been known. In 2012 she called on Allah to "awaken the people and help
them see the evils of Israel." Yet, Democratic leaders appointed her to the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) and
are rejecting calls for her removal. This is because her world view is embraced by her left-wing colleagues who now
Democrats want to Make the Iran Deal Great Again. Several major 2020 Democratic presidential candidates want to
resuscitate the Iran nuclear deal, the controversial Obama-era agreement that President Trump withdrew from in May 2018.
Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told the pro-Tehran Al Monitor that
they would support re-entering the nuclear agreement with the Iranian regime.
Democrats abandon pro-Israel pretense, refuse to speak at AIPAC conference. AIPAC, a bipartisan pro-Israel
organization that advocates for the strengthening of the U.S.-Israel bond, is the opposite of a fringe group. In fact,
many in the pro-Israel community have become frustrated with its watered-down stances in order to accommodate Democrats'
increasing abandonment of the Jewish state. If anything, AIPAC has become what can be fairly labeled a center-left
pro-Israel organization. AIPAC has continuously appeased liberals through its support of the two-state solution and
continuing engagement with the Palestinian Authority.
Ilhan Omar faces hundreds of protesters outside CAIR fundraiser in California. U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar faced
hundreds of protesters Saturday outside a Southern California fundraising event for the local chapter of a major advocacy
group representing Muslim-Americans. "Burn the Quran!," "Ilhan Omar, go to hell!" and "Shame on you, terrorists!" were
among some of the messages shouted outside a Woodland Hills hotel where the Minnesota Democrat spoke at a fundraiser for the
Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles, according to a report. The town is about 25 miles
northwest of downtown L.A.
Protests Against Ilhan Omar Speech at Los Angeles CAIR Event. A large protest was held outside the Hilton hotel
in Los Angeles where Ilhan Omar will be speaking Saturday night at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of
Greater Los Angeles's fourth annual Valley Banquet. The protesters lined the sidewalks waving Israeli and American
flags and held up signs saying "Omar equals hate" and various other slogans, supporting Israel and denouncing Omar.
Protesters staying at the Hilton hotel waved large banners saying "CAIR hates Jews" and "Ilhan hates Israel" from their
balconies. [...] CAIR has a long history of affiliation with the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. CAIR members
have often defended the actions of Hamas in Gaza.
Holding Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror. Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.,
Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism,
appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. The content of these speeches, given to
predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar's critics to express concern about the type of
rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker's repeated use of anti-Semitic
tropes in public.
Democratic presidential candidates to skip AIPAC's pro-Israel conference. The annual conference of the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is generating plenty of controversy even before it starts on Sunday [3/24/2019].
At least nine candidates for President from the Democratic primary have issued statements in the last 48 hours, announcing
that they will be skipping the AIPAC conference. The move is in of itself unusual, given that primary candidates don't
traditionally speak at AIPAC, but have decided this year to make a political point and note their absence from the pro-Israel gathering.
AIPAC Boycott and Obama. NBC News reported Thursday [3/21/2019] that "several Democratic presidential
candidates will skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's policy conference this year after a prominent progressive
group called on them to boycott the event." This has been a rapid descent. In 2017, Kamala Harris said it was "an
honor" to speak before AIPAC. But as quickly as the Democrats' Jew-hatred is being normalized now, it has also been a long
Globalism Drives Ilhan Omar's Politics of Affectation. The world," "the planet," and "other nations" get a lot
of mentions in the speeches of newly elected members of Congress such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar
(D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Each of them focuses on what can be done globally, usually at the expense of the
United States. This calls into question whether they are here to represent their district constituents or if they are
on a mission to submit America to global governance. Like a misguided college undergraduate, Ocasio-Cortez awkwardly
intones the alleged merits of socialism, conveniently ignoring the death toll. Or perhaps, like many undergraduates,
she believes that gulags were "educational camps." Tlaib is openly more proud of being Palestinian than about being
American. And like Ocasio-Cortes and Tlaib, Omar uses worn out clichés about what's wrong with America.
Not coincidentally, fixing those things means embracing a globalist ideology.
Shares Praise for Democrats Boycotting AIPAC. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) appeared to take credit on
Twitter for the Democratic Party's decline in support for Israel Thursday [3/20/2019]. She shared two tweets from
progressive organization MoveOn and from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D., N.Y.) chief of staff that praised
Democrats for not attending the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) annual Policy Conference. MoveOn is
circulating a #SkipAIPAC petition asking Democratic presidential hopefuls to avoid next week's massive annual event. At
present, none will attend.
Trump: Democrats Have Proven to Be Anti-Israel... Frankly I Think They Are Anti-Jewish. President Trump
spoke with reporters briefly on Friday morning before departing for Mara-lago for meetings this weekend. On Thursday
[3/21/2019] President Trump announced the Golan Heights belonged to Israel — another historic move for the most
pro-Israel president in US history. But on Friday a liberal reporter asked him about his comments on the Democrat Party
and his comments on their recent behavior.
CAIR's dirty deeds.
One of the most vocal critics of policies to guard American sovereignty is radical Somali-born Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar,
D-Minn. CAIR leaders and members poured thousands of dollars into her campaign. This weekend, the America-bashing,
Israel-deriding congresswoman will headline a sold-out fund-raising banquet in Southern California. It will be a triumphant
celebration, no doubt, of Rep. Omar's escape from Democratic leadership sanctions (with an invaluable assist from the CAIR
lobby) for her nasty swipes at Republicans, Jews, and, of course, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump. While they drape
themselves in the mantle of "civility," the CAIR brigade speaks viciously and cavalierly about their enemies. Omar says Trump
is not "human." On an Arab-American talk show, she mocked a college professor who treated terrorist organizations al-Qaida
and Hezbollah with gravity. She cackled at how he named them with a sternness in his voice and questioned why the words
"Army" and "America" are not uttered with equal contempt.
Omar's Anti-Semitic Comments 'Abhorrent'. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in his first public comments on the
matter, forefully condemned Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D., Minn.) use of anti-Semitic tropes, calling them
"abhorrent" and condemning her repeated anti-Semitic declarations as contributing to the rise of anti-Semitism across the
globe. Pompeo, who is in Israel for meetings with top officials, was asked during an interview in Jerusalem about
Omar's repeated declarations that influential Jewish people control politics and foreign policy. Pompeo did not mince
words, calling Omar's rhetoric "deeply troubling" and inappropriate for a member of Congress.
Democratic Presidential Candidates to Attend AIPAC Event. No Democratic candidate for president has yet agreed
to attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's annual Policy Conference next week. According to Politico,
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) confirmed through an aide Thursday that she will not be attending. Sen. Elizabeth
Warren (D., Mass.), former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D., Tex.), and Howard Schultz will reportedly do the same. A
representative for former Rep. John Delaney said he had hoped to attend, but could not.
They Come for the Jews, They Won't Ask Questions. [Scroll down] We have our own anti-Semitic scandal with
newly elected congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D), a Somalian hijab-wearing Muslim who tweets anti-Semitic tropes "without sinister
intentions" or retractions. Democrat leadership won't condemn, censure, or remove her from the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, leftist Jews have defended her, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi excused her inadvertent offense. Yes,
Congress passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and anti-everything else, without singling out Omar and the Jews.
Thus, the Democratic Party is falling farther left toward Islamic ideology.
It's Omar's party
now. When freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar came out with smears whose anti-Semitic nature couldn't be denied,
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer responded rapidly, with unequivocal denunciation. But when Pelosi tried to steer a
resolution condemning anti-Semitism through the House, her party's young radicals, who rightly view themselves as
representative of the Democrats' base, rebelled. Omar and her fellow "progressives" won the day, and Pelosi replaced
her anti-Semitism resolution with one so anodyne that Omar happily voted for it. Yesterday [3/20/2019], the arch-leftist
group MoveOn denounced the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which has until now enjoyed broad bipartisan
support, and urged Democratic presidential candidates to boycott AIPAC's upcoming conference.
curious case of Ilhan Omar. Ilhan Omar has refused to answer substantive questions regarding her marriage to
husband number 2, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. I think is fair to infer that Elmi is her brother and that she entered the
marriage for some dishonest purpose. If so, the dishonest purpose would likely have something to do with student
aid while she and Elmi went to college in Fargo at North Dakota State University. If Omar is not Elmi's sibling, the
marriage nevertheless appears to involve some serious dishonesty she has concealed.
Jeanine and the paradoxes of the post-9/11 world. Saturday before last, Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose weekly hour
on Fox News airs immediately before Gutfeld's, opened her show with a powerful editorial about the pathetic failure of the
House of Representatives to properly chastise freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her repeated expressions of
anti-Semitism. In the course of her editorial, Pirro made a thoroughly legitimate point: "Omar wears a hijab,
which according to the Koran 33:59 tells women to cover so that they don't get molested. Is her adherence to this
Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States
Constitution?" It was a perfectly fair question, based on an understanding of Islam that's presumably not shared by the
non-Muslim residents of Minnesota's fifth district who voted for Omar last November — or, for that matter, by the
Michiganders who elected Omar's fellow Muslim Rashida Tlaib. A hijab is, quite simply, a declaration of adherence to
sharia law, and sharia law is antithetical to the Constitution.
Ignorance of Israel at the Washington Post. Today's Washington Post includes a story about a meeting among Muslim and
Jewish Democratic members of Congress that took place on March 5. The story got a lot of play, but it included an
extraordinary error — an error that was mostly covered up, rather than revealed, by the correction the Post subsequently
ran: [...] Rashida Tlaib is the newly-elected Michigan Congresswoman who is, among other faults, viciously anti-Israel.
But the Post's correction didn't explain what, exactly, was wrong with the original story.
Omar Doesn't Represent American Muslims, She Represents Islamists. When the newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar
kicked off her acceptance speech with "As-Salaam-Alaikum," I felt a space of belonging. There was a feeling that
American Muslims had arrived — but what arrived with them, and which version of Islam was going to be represented
through her and fellow Muslim freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib? As-Salaam-Alaikum means "peace be with you," but how
Omar has carried herself in the weeks that followed has been anything put peaceful. Here's a quick rundown of her
recent actions. Omar accused American Jews of holding dual loyalty toward Israel. However, there was no word of
her loyalty to Islamist supremacism and its gold star prize of advancing the Palestinian cause by decimating the Jewish
state's right to exist. [...]
Cannot Bury Our Heads in the Sand about Ilhan Omar. [Scroll down] [R]ather than being seen as a threat,
many see Rep. Omar as a victory of American culture over the inherent divisiveness of a hate-filled world.
However, her many anti-Semitic comments since she has taken office intensify the debate. She talks about the Jewish
power through "Benjamins" ($100 bill pictures of Ben Franklin), about AIPAC buying illegitimate influence, and about Jewish
dual loyalty to Israel as well as the USA (with no mention of her possible triple loyalty to the USA; Somalia; and Islam,
which is as much a political as a religious system). Her defenders, like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, say these comments are
reflections of mere rhetorical inexperience, and not of deep-seated anti-Semitism. Does she not know that the USA was
the first country to recognize the existence of Israel as a nation-state? Does she not know that when Jews were
disparaged and worse in Europe, they found a haven in these United States going back to the 17th century because freedom of
conscience was so valued? Acceptance of Jewish people is not just a matter of current events, but part of the
foundation of liberty in this country.
Socialist and Muslim Lies About Racism. Last week a vote was taken on a resolution in the House of Representatives.
The resolution was to condemn Ilhan Omar for the anti-Semitic tropes she has used since coming to Congress. An avid Muslim and
Anti Semite, Omar has forced the government to change rules that have been in force since time immemorial. The anti-Semitism
condemnation never passed but a diluted resolution against hate was passed. The new resolution that passed is one claiming the "hate
groups" against virtually every identity group that the Democrats need to win an election. It was passed in an attempt to endear the
leftists to homosexuals, blacks, Muslims, and illegal immigrants. However, there a few marginal groups that were not mentioned and
will continue to be ignored by the progressive socialists. Christians and white males. Hey, progressive socialists, care to
explain to me why this isn't the leftist form of racism?
Pelosi, your excuses for Democrat anti-Semitism are un-American. Last week's House resolution began because of
clear and unequivocal anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a Somali-born Muslim who has been called to
account before on her anti-Semitism by Jewish leaders in her own district. But Speaker Pelosi tried to act as though
Omar was simply unaware that her comments would be taken as anti-Semitic and therefore should be given a pass. The
Islamist activist Omar is an anti-Semite because she is an Islamist activist. Pelosi has held positive views of the
mutual enemies of Israel and America.
Lies of Ilhan Omar and the Progressive Socialists. There are those in our country and in our Congress actively
working against the principles that have made this country great. They continually work against the people of this
country and have malice for those who disagree. Using the false idea that they know better than those whom they are
supposedly governing they cannot understand the alienation that the American people feel or the violence that will come if
the people continue to feel alienated. One of the people is terrorist sympathizer Ilhan Omar. Many points in her
past have come to a pinnacle of deception. In the past, she has sided with terrorists rather than those who elected her
Lawmakers Admit During Private Meeting They Don't Know What Anti-Semitism Looks Like. A meeting of Democratic
lawmakers about anti-Semitism in the party included anti-Semitic jokes and unapologetic members of Congress, the
Washington Post reports. In the wake of anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and several
closed-door conferences by Democrats to discuss related issues within the party, Rep. Andy Levin (D., Mich.), a former
synagogue president, organized a meeting as "a more formal event that would focus on anti-Semitism." The March 5
meeting of Muslim and Jewish lawmakers was a "moment meant to be about listening and learning" about the "raw experiences"
of the elected officials, according to the Post. Levin invited Omar and her allies Reps. Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) to attend.
Obama's Radicalism Laid The Groundwork For Ilhan Omar's. Rep. Ilhan Omar's controversial comments are not
limited to anti-Semitic attacks on supporters of Israel. She recently took flak from Democrats for criticizing former
President Barack Obama: [...] Omar is not wrong to note Obama aggressively used drones and caged kids at the border, neither
of which were covered by the establishment media with the hysterics accompanying similar stories about the Trump
administration. In general, however, Omar's critique resonates only with her fellow travelers on the identitarian
left. It is more accurate to say that Obama laid the foundation for the Party of Omar.
Democratic Party's Anti-Semitism Problem Is Obama's Legacy. Why does Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) still have her
position on the House Foreign Relations Committee? House Republicans stripped Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) of his
committee positions after making his own controversial remarks. Omar should have met the same fate. But
considering recent history, it's not surprising that Omar remains unpunished. It's just the latest example of their
party turning a blind eye to the rise of anti-Semitism in their ranks over the years — if not embracing it at
times. [...] Prior to being elected president of the United States, Obama spent twenty years in the congregation of Jeremiah
Wright. Wright's anti-American and anti-Semitic remarks became a liability for Obama during the 2008 election but
didn't matter enough to the people who voted for him. Obama may have been forced to quit his church and distance
himself from Wright, but that didn't change who Obama was at heart — and it presented itself once he showed up to
the White House.
grovels - to defender of Jew-hating Omar. [Scroll down] Her apology was not only cowardly, but also bad
stuff for her supposed "brave" stance condemning anti-Semitism in the wake of Omar's revolting statements, giving a few
inches to her defenders, presumably in the interest of "civility." You never give anti-Semites so much as a millimeter
of ground, and she ought to know it. It just goes to show how weak and tenuous the Democratic elites' claims to
supporting condemnation against anti-Semitism really are. Chelsea Clinton folded like a cheap suit, when she should
have pulled out her inner attack dog.
is Congress Ignoring Alleged Congressional Terrorist Ilhan Omar? When Glenn Beck is good (and there can be little doubt
that he sometimes is) he's brilliant. In a stunning video, posted on Front Page Mag today, Beck calls out Minnesota Representative
Ilhan Omar for what she appears to be in her new-found political life, a terrorist or an in-the-closet propagandist for the amped-up
advance of terrorism. "Is Congresswoman Ilhan Omar a Jew-hating, America-hating terrorist? Watch the video and decide for
yourself, "FrontPageMag.com asks today [3/15/2019]. In his spellbinding video, Beck proves point by point that CAIR (Council on
American-Islamic Relations) is nothing but "the propaganda arm for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas", and advises viewers to follow their
fundraising efforts: "Please do you own homework".
see bigotry everywhere — except where it actually is. As a proud American Jew, I don't look for
anti-Semitism around every corner. But I didn't have to look hard to see it in the ongoing and egregious case of
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Her overt Jew hatred keeps slapping me in the face. At first, the Democratic Party
just ignored Omar's blatant bigotry. Then, Democrats twisted themselves into pretzels to avoid naming her in their
feckless resolution, which eventually sounded like all of their other clichés. Did they hope we wouldn't notice
that she was the reason for the resolution in the first place? The left has worked so hard at its agenda of identity
politics, and has stereotyped everyone according to various groupings, that when it's time to admonish one person in a
specific case, the leftists fear the very behavior that they themselves planted — that everyone belonging to that
group will revolt as the "victims" they've been taught to be.
How Do You
Solve a Problem Like Rashida? [Scroll down] The object of the freshman Michigan Democrat's derision was,
of course, President Trump. This sentiment naturally got whoops and cheers from the guests at a MoveOn.org reception,
who were there to celebrate the election of the Muslima from Dearbornistan, one of two female followers of Mohammed —
the other is Ilhan Omar — now occupying chairs in the Capitol. The triumphalism was multi-layered: not only
had the Democrats — thanks, Paul Ryan! — retaken the House by both hook (free stuff for everybody except old
toxic-male white guys, served up piping hot by the media) and crook (ballot harvesting in California that delivered once solidly
Republican Orange County over to the Democrats) but, in the guise of "diversity," they had also put two more co-religionists of
the 9/11 hijackers into the Congress. Tlaib and Omar have wasted no time in getting to work against American norms and the
Jews and Supporters Stage Sit-in at Nancy Pelosi's Office. Jexodus is the new movement urging Jews, especially millennials,
to exit the party of the Democrats because of that party's increasing willingness to excuse bald antisemitism amongst its ranks.
Now comes an appeal to all Jews to stand up to the Democrats' leadership and demand they "stop this anti-Jewishness dead in its tracks."
Therefore, in response to what it calls the failure of the Democratic leadership, the National Conference of Jewish Affairs (NCJA) has called
for a sit-in at the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, March 14, at 1:00 p.m. The sit-in will be followed by a
Ilhan Omar, Barack Obama Mainstreamed Anti-Semitism In The Democratic Party. D.C. is still reeling from last
week's debacle involving Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has made a series of statements many have criticized as anti-Semitic.
In 2012, she tweeted, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of
Israel." In February, Omar had tweeted that support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins baby," prompting charges
she was raising anti-Semitic tropes involving Jews and sinister financial machinations. Two weeks ago, she raised the
issue of dual loyalty, and old anti-Semitic canard, before a D.C. crowd: "Nobody ever gets to have the broader debate
of what is happening with Palestine. So for me, I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says
it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country."
Democrats Go Anti-Semitic As They Turn Socialist. American socialism traces its ideological ancestry to Charles
Fourier, a French socialist bigot who declared that Jews were the embodiment of capitalism, "parasites, merchants, usurers",
and the "incarnation of commerce: parasitical, deceitful, traitorous and unproductive". Even the term 'anti-Semite'
was popularized by Wilhelm Marr, the socialist founder of the League of Antisemites. The inventor of anti-Semitism's
arguments were the same ones put forward by Marx, Fourier, H.G. Wells, Lenin and countless other socialists. The
Jews were all about the 'Benjamins'. They started wars. They were disloyal and manipulated society. They were a
dangerous foreign element.
Barack Obama Legitimize Anti-Semitism? Is it conceivable that the Democratic Party became the epicenter of
American anti-Semitism without this having something to do with Barack Obama? Did Obama make it safe to be anti-Semitic
and a Democrat? Such is the argument made by Mark Hemingway in The Federalist. We have made a similar argument
here, but Hemingway has amassed the evidence. We might begin with the fact that Palestinian terror group Hamas endorsed
the Obama candidacy in 2008. And of course, Obama's favorite pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright hated Israel, hated Jews and
supported Hamas: [...] And then there was the matter of Obama's close relationship with one Rashid Khalidi, a supporter and
sympathizer with Palestinian terrorism: [...] One notes that, to this day, we have not heard the tape of Obama's remarks at
Khalidi's departure dinner. The Los Angeles Times is holding them in its safe, and no one seems to care about
pressuring them to spit them out.
The Democrats Have a Race Problem.
Consider last week's uproar in the House of Representatives, where Democrats attempted to pass a resolution condemning
anti-Semitism, but instead were forced to pass a watered-down statement against "hate," generalized to the point of
incoherence. That debacle was made necessary by the anti-Jewish rhetoric of Rep. Ilhan Omar, the newly elected
Democrat from Minnesota's 5th District. Omar is a Somali immigrant who represents an area of Minneapolis known as
"Little Mogadishu" that has become a prime U.S. recruiting ground for Islamic terrorists. Dozens of Muslims from Omar's
district joined ISIS in Syria, so that her repeated smears of American Jews and her Hamas-style rhetoric against Israel
cannot be dismissed as incidental or harmless. However, as Abraham Miller noted last week ("Institutionalizing
Anti-Semitism in the Halls of Congress"), because the Black Caucus "ran to Omar's aid and defended her vile anti-Semitism,"
Speaker Nancy Pelosi was unable to get a straight-up vote on this crucial issue. If any Republican had demeaned Jews
the way Omar did, the outrage of liberals would have been thermonuclear in its intensity, yet Democrats bent over backwards
to make excuses for her. Pelosi asserted that Omar failed to understand "the full weight" of her own words, claiming
Omar was ignorant of the "cultural impact" of what she said.
Dual Loyalty Detectives.
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) recently bashed those U.S. Senators who voted against Boycott Divestment and Sanctions
(BDS) legislation, charging that "they forgot what country they represent." In similar style, Rep. Ilhan Omar
(D-Minn.) cited political influence "that says it's OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country." Omar is
also on record that "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of
Israel." Millennials and their younger siblings may not have heard such charges, so they might consider ways to detect
dual loyalty. First, check for American politicians who claim there is no distinction between the United States and
Israel. At the same time, look for American politicians who bring Israeli candidates to the United States to help them
campaign in U.S. elections. Understand that these politicians are open to charges of dual loyalty.
Strikes Again: Trump Is Not A Human. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made dehumanizing remarks about President
Donald Trump on Monday when asked about an interview she gave last week, saying that the president was not human. Fox
News' Guerin Hays asked Omar, who has been engulfed in an anti-Semitism scandal, about an interview she gave to Politico last
week where she attacked former President Barack Obama and suggested that he was a murderer. Omar came out after the
interview was published and claimed that Politico was lying about the interview and that she did not make those comments.
Omar tweeted an audio clip of that segment of the interview that she thought exonerated her but it ended up proving that
she did say it. After being mocked online she deleted the tweet.
says 'Islamophobia' among Dems may be why Omar was criticized by own party. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, defended her
colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar from backlash within their own party regarding the Minnesota representative's controversial remarks deemed
by some to be anti-Semitic. Omar suggested on Twitter that pro-Israel politicians are bought by groups like AIPAC and that those who support
Israel have an "allegiance to a foreign country." Her remarks sparked much condemnation, including several of her Democratic colleagues.
Warns Americans to Visit Ilhan Omar's District: You Won't Think It's America. Middle Eastern Women's
Coalition (MEWC) director Nahren Anweya on Wednesday warned Americans who visit Minnesota's 5th district, Rep. Ilhan
Omar's district, the 2016 "terrorist recruitment capital of the country." "You won't even think you're in America," she
said of the district that elected Ilhan Omar. MEWC Director of Speical Projects Anweya was speaking at an MEWC press
conference calling for Rep. Omar to resign. She said she has cousins and family members "called whores for
showing" part of the back of the arm in Iraq, "a country where one day they were wearing mini skirts."
Jews Better Wake Up Before It's Too Late. Back in Berlin in the 1920s and well into the 30s, many, if not most,
Jewish liberals of that time and place thought it could never happen to them. They were good Germans, after all,
culturally advanced members of a sophisticated society much like today's Manhattan. As we all know, they were dead
wrong. Hitler put the atheist communists and the ultra-orthodox Hasidim on the same trains to Auschwitz. He could
not have cared less about what side of what they were on[.] At first glance, it might seem excessive to reference such
extreme events, but you don't have to be Yogi Berra to see the potential for déjà vu all over again.
Americans And The Democrat Party: Time To Go? Since Donald Trump's election, we've seen the beginning of
a shake-up in at least a couple of longtime Democratic Party constituencies. Candace Owens heads up "Blexit," a
movement by black Americans who, having recognized the damage done to them by the Great Society and its aftermath, are
leaving the Democratic plantation. Then there's Brandon Straka, a gay guy and former hard-core lefty and Trump-hater
who, after the 2016 election, realized he'd been served a bill of goods by the mainstream media and Democratic Party and is
now, with his WalkAway campaign, helping other disillusioned former progressives — including many gays who now
grasp the existential danger that Islam represents to them — to shake off identity politics, victimhood rhetoric,
speech suppression, and incipient socialism. Given the apparent success of these initiatives, it occurred to me, after
reading Roger Simon's piece, that a similar group targeted especially at Jews might not be a bad idea. I even came up
with the perfect name for it: Exodus. But hallelujah! A quick Google search revealed that somebody else is
already on the job.
Dems add anti-Semitism accusation to party's troubles. Ibraheem Samirah, Democrats' candidate in a special
election for a state House seat later this month, apologized Friday [2/8/2019] for anti-Israel comments from earlier this
decade, saying that while he made them, the fact that they are rising now is a "slander campaign." Dr. Samirah,
who was born in the U.S. but calls himself a "second-generation Palestinian refugee," said he wrote the offending comments
five years ago on Facebook, and says they were the musings of his college mind, which "I sincerely regret and apologize for."
Intra-party friction: The
offspring of Trump Derangement Syndrome is Pelosi's triple nightmare. First, can you imagine how the leftist
mob would have reacted if a conservative had posted something about President Obama "caging the kids"? My guess is that
Facebook or Twitter would have deleted the remarks for being unsuitable for the community. I wonder if Omar's Twitter
account will be shut down! Second, I wonder how many from the left agree with Omar's anti-Obama remarks. My guess
is that many do but were afraid to say it. After all, President Obama never closed Gitmo or stopped the drones, and
indeed, he put a lot of kids in cages. These three ladies are Pelosi's nightmare because she can't stop them.
They owe nothing to the party leadership, and I wouldn't be surprised if they think of Pelosi what Omar thinks of Obama.
You Solve a Problem Like Ilhan Omar? Conservatives are accustomed to leftists hiding their true motives and
feelings as they attempt to claw their way to political control over all of us, but Omar is different in that she makes no
attempt to disguise her true feelings, either about America or the Jews. Anti-Western to her core, she rewards the
generosity of the Americans toward the Somali Muslim community by spitting in our faces. As I wrote recently at PJ Media,
there's something about the Somalis that makes them different from other cultural aliens who have arrived in — or, in
the Somalis' case, been deliberately imported to — the United States. An ethnic group low on its share of geniuses
but long on violence, the Minnesota Somalis have the disgraceful distinction of sending more men and boys to join foreign
terrorist organizations such as al-Shabab and ISIS over the past dozen years than any other place in the country. And
this, of course, is Omar's district — why would we have any doubt that she will represent it faithfully?
Dems revolt against Pelosi over resolution to condemn anti-Semitism. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "taken
aback" by the growing dissent and anger among rank-and-file Democrats over a possible resolution to formally condemn
anti-Semitism, a Democratic source told Fox News on Wednesday — highlighting Pelosi's tenuous grip on control over
the House and underscoring the growing power of the party's nascent far-left progressive wing. Pelosi even reportedly
walked out of a meeting Wednesday [3/6/2019] with Democrat House members, setting down her microphone and telling attendees,
"Well if you're not going to listen to me, I'm done talking." The stalled resolution originated after freshman Democratic
Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, for at least the second time in recent months, ignited an uproar for echoing tropes critics
have deemed anti-Semitic.
Ilhan Omar To Fundraise
For Islamic Terror-Linked Palestinian Organization. Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is scheduled to
raise money in March with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) only a week after she used an
anti-Semitic trope to claim Israel has paid for GOP support. Omar will be the keynote speaker at CAIR's 4th Annual
Valley Banquet on March 23 to discuss advancing justice and empowering Muslims, according to the organization's
invitation. Single tickets start at $55 per person and a table can cost upwards of $500. Hassan Shibly, the
chief executive director for CAIR-Florida, will also be speaking at the event.
Omar Runs From Reporters. That's not a woman who looks sorry to me. That is not a woman who looks like
she made a mistake — this is something she knows she's going to get away with. Why? Because the
Democratic Party is increasingly anti-Israel and, thereby, through that an anti-Semitic party.
Omar to keynote event alongside antisemite days after AIPAC rant. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar will be a keynote
speaker at an Islamic Relief USA emergency fundraising dinner for Yemen in Tampa, Florida, on February 23. Omar will be
speaking alongside a well-known Islamic Relief USA official, Yousef Abdallah, who has advocated for violence against Jews and
has shared antisemitic sentiments on his social media pages. The Middle East Forum's Islamist Watch blog highlighted
this address, and reported several instances in which Abdallah posted or shared stories of incitement. This includes
his captioning and sharing a "very beautiful [folk] story" about "martyrs" who provide guns to "kill more than 20 Jews" and
"fire rockets at Tel Aviv."
Tlaib wrote column for Louis Farrakhan publication in 2006. Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib once
wrote a column for the Final Call, an official publication of the Nation of Islam and its notorious leader Louis
Farrakhan. Tlaib, a Palestinian American, has been facing criticism ever since her arrival in Congress and promise to
impeach President Trump using profane language. She later came under bipartisan criticism from Jewish groups for
appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during her swearing in ceremony in Michigan, with some activists previously
praising terror group Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists, and saying that Israel has no right to exist.
Dem leaders condemn Rep. Omar for 'anti-Semitic' language. In an unprecedented rebuke under the new Congress,
House Democratic leaders on Monday roundly condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for statements about supporters of Israel
that were widely viewed as anti-Semitic and called on her to apologize. The statement issued by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
and the rest of the Democratic leadership team followed the latest in a string of controversial comments from the freshman
lawmaker — as well as pressure from Republican leaders to speak out.
Dems just can't bring themselves to condemn antisemitism. If the Democratic Caucus that controls the House of
Representatives could be said to have a soul, this would be a battle for it. The new version of the Democratic Party,
the one that embraces identity politics — a coalition of aggrieved parties who unite under the doctrine of
"intersectionality" — no longer considers Jewish Americans worthy of care, protection, or even consideration.
Regarded now as Caucasian oppressors, Jews can be attacked for "dual loyalties" and as craven manipulators using money to buy
support from non-Jews — classic attacks used for centuries to justify persecution and even extermination.
Yesterday [3/5/2019], a planned vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism — with no mention, much less
condemnation of Rep Ilhan Omar for her repeated invocation of antisemitic tropes — was mysteriously cancelled.
But a good clue as to what happened can be inferred from the startling change by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), who only a
few days ago was attacking Omar for her "vile antisemitic slur."
Democrats Normalize Anti-Semitism, a Jexodus Momentum is Building. Rep. Ilhan Omar played a game of
chicken with the Democrats, making a series of anti-Semitic statements and betting that they would blink. And the blink
has all but happened. The second toothless resolution condemning anti-Semitism, but not Omar, is stalled. A high
pressure media campaign has rolled out across major papers, the New York Times, the Washington Post, not to mention the usual
digital media smear sites, normalizing and defending Rep. Omar's anti-Semitic comments. The Progressive Caucus is
standing by her. As is the Congressional Black Caucus, which has met with Farrakhan, and has its own issues with
Trump Rips Anti-Semitic Democrat Ilhan Omar. Anti-Semitic Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was back in the news
this week for a new batch of anti-Jew remarks. The Muslim Democrat from Minnesota revived an old trope about divided
loyalties among Jewish-Americans when she criticized the idea that it's "OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign
country." Jewish Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) lashed out at the anti-Semitic representative on Friday [3/1/2019] in a
statement. Rep. Ilhan Omar is a radical anti-Semitic wildcard for Democrats.
get ready to issue anti-Semitic Ilhan Omar their 'stern warning'. [Scroll down] That's the proverbial
"stern warning," following on from Pelosi's earlier "yelling at" statement to Omar for the second incident, yet the press
reports it's somehow unprecedented. Actually, they're doing nothing, and Omar can see they're doing nothing, not even
naming her for her statements, which are the reason the resolution is coming out in the first place. She's an odious
anti-Semite; she's proven it with her statements, covering the map of the anti-Semitic universe — from Jews rule
the world to Jewish money controls politics to Jews having dual loyalties — and now she's doubling down on it,
refusing to apologize.
The Anti-Semitism of
AOC, Omar, and Tlaib. That fractious coven of freshman Democrats so beloved of the media —
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib — have been patiently indulged by the leadership of their
party. The obvious reason for putting up with the antics of these three involves the hope that they will help get out
the millennial vote in 2020. But this trio of weird sisters is now stirring up such a bilious brew of dissension in their
caucus and bad PR that prominent Democrats are starting to complain, particularly about the anti-Semitism of Omar and Tlaib.
Jewish Groups Demand Anti-Semitic Omar Be Removed From Foreign Affairs Committee. A group of leading Jewish
organizations petitioned the House of Representative's top Democrats on Monday, demanding that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.,
Minn.) be removed from her position on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee in light of her numerous anti-Semitic remarks
and ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Jewish people, according to a copy of a letter exclusively obtained by the
Washington Free Beacon. Omar, who has been singled out multiple times in her short career on Congress due to several
anti-Semitic comments, continued to double down on her belief that pro-Israel members of Congress are more loyal to Israel
than America on Sunday [3/3/2019].
Actions speak louder than words. These are just words. House
Dems plan to introduce resolution condemning anti-Semitic comments amid Omar controversy. House Democrats are
drafting a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and plan to introduce it on the floor later this week in the wake of controversial
comments made by freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. While it is not clear whether the resolution will specifically
condemn Omar's remarks, a senior House Democratic aide told Fox News that a draft of the resolution was worked on over the
weekend by the staff for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi along with those of Reps. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.,
Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Ted Deutch, D-Fla. Despite only being in Congress since January, Omar has been the center of
controversy over numerous remarks she's made that have been labelled anti-Semitic.
Ilhan Omar's denunciation of anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan? Three days ago, Nation of Islam pooh-bah Louis
Farrakhan praised Rep. Ilhan Omar's revoltingly open Jew-hating tweets and offered her some unsolicited advice: not to
apologize. [...] On her Twitter feed, she's instead got tweets about her advocacy for Liberians about to be deported for
overstaying their welcome; a video featuring herself as the embodiment of Black History Month — odd, for someone
who's been in the U.S. for only two decades — a link to a leftist essay defending socialism; and, in that
mirthless mocking way of hers, a selective quote from Abraham Lincoln about people who deny others freedom not deserving
their own freedom. There's also her pinned tweet at the top showing her well heeled arrival to Congress, citing her
refugee roots. But not a word about Farrakhan, which would be a golden opportunity to dissociate herself from him and
actually prove she's not an anti-Semite.
Omar's Hateful Anti-Semitism and Anti-Americanism. Watching the recent fallout from Rep. Ilhan Omar's
latest anti-Semitic tweet, in which she claims that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee buys congressmen's support
of Israel, several thoughts struck me. The first was that despite the existence of internationally and nationally
recognized definitions of anti-Semitism, pundits and journalists either remain willfully ignorant when confronted with this
millennia-old hatred or intentionally whitewash it for personal, ideological, and political reasons. Both explanations
are dangerous. Reading headlines and watching news accounts regarding Omar's tweets, I was disgusted at phrases such as
"some call these anti-Semitic," "these may border on anti-Semitism," "considered to be anti-Semitic by some," "possibly
anti-Semitic," and similar permutations that leave open the question of whether her tweet was actually anti-Semitic.
Has Ties to Radical Anti-Israel, Anti-American Group. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has ties to a group that
includes numerous radical anti-American and anti-Israel activists on its board of directors. Notes of support posted to
the controversial congresswoman's door include a message from the organization Witness for Peace. [...] Witness for Peace is
now led by a group of radical board members who have taken positions against America, Israel, democracy, and capitalism.
Members of the board include activists who have called for efforts to "dismantle U.S. militarism," accused Israel of inflicting
"institutionalized racism that equates to modern day apartheid," and pro-Maduro activists who write "dear comrade" letters
calling for war against capitalism. One board member has ties to a group founded by a Palestinian activist who called
for the "eradication of Israel."
Nancy Has Lost Control of Her Crazy Party. The only thing that should keep you from roaring in laughter as
Nancy Pelosi freaks out trying to keep a lid on the freak show that is the Democratic caucus is the knowledge that the
freshmen freakettes giving her fits would impose an ideology of tyranny and murder if given the chance. [...] This was on
display as the Democrats struggled to find a way to publicly pretend to condemn their superstar bigot's hatred of Jews
without annoying all the Democrats for whom hatred of Jews is a key component of their intersectional web of leftist
prejudices. Nancy essentially tried to excuse it by explaining that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Berlin) is too stupid to
know she's anti-Semitic which, to be fair, is plausible.
data shows Ilhan Omar's district is terrorist recruitment capital of the US. One of two newly elected Muslim
congresswomen, both of them known antisemites, reportedly grew up in what has been dubbed the terrorist recruitment capital
of the United States. "More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined, or attempted to
join, a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country," Fox News reported
Saturday [2/16/2019], citing data from the FBI. The data specifically shows that over the past 12 years, a total of 45
Muslims have departed from the Minnesota city to go join a radical Islamic troop, be it ISIS or al-Shabab. And of this 45,
roughly a dozen Somalis left as recently as 2018 and some even reportedly this year.
the Democrats Go Socialist, They Go Anti-Semitic. American socialism traces its ideological ancestry to Charles
Fourier, a French socialist bigot who declared that Jews were the embodiment of capitalism, "parasites, merchants, usurers",
and the "incarnation of commerce: parasitical, deceitful, traitorous and unproductive". Even the term 'anti-Semite' was
popularized by Wilhelm Marr, the socialist founder of the League of Antisemites. The inventor of anti-Semitism's
arguments were the same ones put forward by Marx, Fourier, H.G. Wells, Lenin and countless other socialists. The Jews
were all about the 'Benjamins'. They started wars. They were disloyal and manipulated society. They were a
dangerous foreign element. These are the same tropes that were put forward by Rep. Ilhan Omar and defended by her
socialist allies in the House Progressive Caucus and across the media. Anti-Semitism is one of the meeting points
between socialists and Islamists. The more anti-Semitism she spews, the more Rep. Omar unites the identity
politics caucus of minority group racial nationalists and Islamists, with the traditional Left.
lightning rod effect: How Rashida Tlaib is being used as an Islamic agent provocateur. Down in little
Hallandale Beach, Florida, a local city commissioner is in big trouble because she had the audacity to voice her opinion
about the outspoken new Muslim Congresswoman from Michigan, Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib, as everyone knows by now, became one
of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in November, the other being Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Soon after
being sworn into office, Tlaib wasted no time introducing herself to America by publicly calling for the removal from office
of President Donald Trump in the most vulgar terms imaginable, sharing at a news conference that she had told her young son,
"Don't worry honey we're gonna impeach [Trump]!" Tlaib also is known to be rabidly anti-Semitic. A map of the
Middle East in her office has a sticky note pasted over the state of Israel that says "Palestine" and she is friends with
pro-Sharia activist and Women's March co-founder Linda Sarsour.
not be funding this anti-American hate-spewer. With the fierce Twitter tirades she routinely unleashes against
ideological foes — particularly American patriots and supporters of Israel — Linda Sarsour could be
the scariest political player you may never have heard of. Until now. Sarsour, a Muslim activist and ally of Mayor
Bill de Blasio, blasted into the mainstream in August with a fawning profile published in The New York Times headlined:
"Linda Sarsour is a Brooklyn Homegirl in a Hijab."
of the Democrats. In America's current political climate, Democrats are making frequent use of terms they
understand poorly at best. To silence debate and criticism, Democrats routinely employ labels such as "Fascist,"
"Nazi," or "racist" to shut down and intimidate their political targets. Ironically, however, as Democrats engage this
way they are quickly adopting the very characteristics of those groups they supposedly despise. Most notably, the
Democrats increasingly display anti-Semitism along with their hostility to Christianity, traditional American values, and
individual liberty. The recent revelation that Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) tweeted in 2012 that Israel had
"hypnotized the world" is a clear indication of where the Democratic Party is headed — and why Americans should worry.
Pelosi Must Rescind Ilhan Omar's Foreign Affairs Post. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has spent two weeks proving
that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made a big mistake promoting her to the House Foreign Affairs Committee —
an error that is hurting her party and the country. [...] The result has been a public relations mess for Democratic Party
leaders. They have been at pains this week to defend Omar as well as fellow first-year Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI),
as the Capitol Hill press corps has finally begun to ask whether their hostility to Israel goes too far.
Sarsour Outs Herself as an Anti-Semite on Holocaust Remembrance Day. On Sunday, Women's March leader Linda
Sarsour effectively outed herself as an anti-Semite. Ironically, her statement for Holocaust Remembrance Day in 2019
did the very thing she denounced in 2017 as the "definition of anti-Semitism" — she did not mention the
Jews. "May the memories of those who perished inspire us to love and protect one another. May we never forget
history so that we may never repeat it," Sarsour wrote in a Facebook post.
Denies Reports That She Was Sworn In On Thomas Jefferson's Quran. Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib
on Saturday denied recent reports that she was sworn in with former President Thomas Jefferson's 18th-century Quran.
Tlaib insisted that she instead used her own copy of the Islamic scriptures to make her ceremonial swear-in "more
personal." "I used my own *personal Quran* that my best friend of 25 years gifted me to use for the ceremonial
swear in (basically a photo with Speaker Pelosi). [...]"
Rashida Tlaib Unleashes Anti-Semitic Slur Against Congressional Colleagues, Says They Have Dual Loyalties.
Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is creating fresh controversy in her second week in the House of
Representatives, but this time it's over a shocking, anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their
support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the
anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement. Phil Klein in the Washington Examiner reports that Tlaib
"charged that supporters [of the anti-BDS] bill" were torn by their "dual loyalty" to both Israel and the United States, and
claimed that the bill's supporters "forgot what country they represent."
Tlaib: 'We Have to Fight Against Transphobia, Homophobia, Racism, Anti-Blackness, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, Antisemitism,
Sexism — You Name It'. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D.-Mich.) spoke at the National LGBT Task Force's
Creating Change Conference in Detroit on Saturday where she said that transphobia, homophobia, racism, islamophobia,
antisemitism and sexism "are intertwined," according to a video of her remarks posted by the National LGBTQ Task Force.
She also said: "I want you all to know that I will continue to fight for LGBTQ rights in Congress." "We have to
fight against transphobia, homophobia, racism, anti-blackness, islamophobia, xenophobia, antisemitism, sexism —
you name it," Tlaib said. "Because we know that these things are intertwined. They are so connected. We
know that those that advance hate are trying to deny it for all of us, they are trying to deny all of our existence."
The Editor says...
It sounds like she lives in a really messed-up little world, because I don't see any such problems. At least not in substantial quantities.
Omar, Our Crazy Little Congresswoman from Minnesota. Muslim Democratic Socialist/Communist Ilhan Omar has been
sticking up for Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela's Democratic Socialist/Dictator. In tweets, she condemns the President's
so-called support of a coup in Venezuela, ignoring the fact that the people are starving and the election of Maduro this past
week was a fraud. Also, there is no U.S. coup. It's not unusual for this far-left religious fascist to take the
wrong side. There is no way she should even be in Congress. Omar doesn't like the United States.
Ilhan Omar facing new scrutiny over past effort to win leniency for 9 men accused of trying to join ISIS.
Embattled congressional freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., once asked a judge to show leniency toward a group of
Minnesota men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terror group. "The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system
of compassion," she wrote at the time. "We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we
should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation." The nine Minnesota men were facing decades in prison after
being accused in 2015 of making plans, including buying fake passports, in an effort to travel to Syria and fight for ISIS,
which was at its peak level of activity and held territory in Syria and Iraq.
Dem leaders condemn Rep. Omar for 'anti-Semitic' language. In an unprecedented rebuke under the new
Congress, House Democratic leaders on Monday roundly condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for statements about supporters
of Israel that were widely viewed as anti-Semitic and called on her to apologize. The statement issued by House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic leadership team followed the latest in a string of controversial comments from
the freshman lawmaker — as well as pressure from Republican leaders to speak out.
Omar's Anti-Jewish Views Are Typical For Democrats' Congressional Black Caucus. A House vote on a resolution to
condemn anti-Semitism met fierce pushback from various factions within the Democrat Party this past week, leaving many to
contemplate at what precise point in politics the condemnation of anti-Semitism became a controversial notion. We
couldn't agree last week that allowing a breathing, injured baby to be denied the care of a hospital was criminal.
Apparently, we also can't agree that hating Jews is despicable. As David Marcus of The Federalist remarked darkly,
"Hatred of the Jews is nuanced." As the Democrats' indulging of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) reveals, perhaps to
the left it is. Or, more perniciously, what we have witnessed this past week is a highly public fight for the soul of
the Democrat Party, a sort of forced reckoning with the wildly left elements of the party that seem intent on dragging the
party to the depressing depths of their ideology.
anti-Semitism poses grave danger to Dems' 2020 election chances. President Trump wasted no time Friday [3/8/2019] in
attacking Democrats for their refusal to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for her anti-Semitic comments when the House passed
a resolution condemning a broad range of bigotry. The president clearly sees an opening to pick up votes of Jews —
and non-Jews who support them and Israel — by portraying Republicans as their true friends. And the opening is indeed
there. By failing to specifically condemn Omar in the resolution and by failing to remove her from the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, Democrats have not fulfilled their responsibility to take an unequivocal and tangible step to right Omar's anti-Semitic wrong.
says Omar isn't anti-Semitic: 'I think she has a different experience in the use of words'. House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, speaking Friday at an Economic Club event, said she doesn't think embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is anti-Semitic.
"I don't think our colleague is anti-Semitic, I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn't understand that
some of them are fraught with meaning that she didn't realize," Pelosi said. Pelosi defended the congresswoman a day after
the House passed an anti-hate resolution, prompted largely by a series of perceptibly anti-Semitic comments made by Omar.
Rep. Ted Deutch Slams Inability to Condemn Antisemitism Alone. Florida Democrat Rep. Ted Deutch in an
emotional speech on the House floor on Thursday slammed his fellow Democrats for tolerating antisemitism, after Democrats
changed a resolution against antisemitism to one that condemned all hatred. Deutch was one of three Democrats who had
first called for a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, after his fellow Democrat colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) made
comments suggesting that some lawmakers had "allegiance" to Israel, which smacked of the antisemitic trope of American-Jewish
citizens having "dual loyalty."
Pelosi Appoints Anti-Israel Radical Ilhan Omar to House Foreign Affairs Committee. Speaker of the House Nancy
Pelosi appointed anti-Israel radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday
[1/17/2019]. Omar confirmed the appointment on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. Omar supports the boycott,
divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, which has been called antisemitic because it singles out the Jewish
state for isolation and ignores the Palestinian side.
Sarsour Explains How She Influenced Democratic Leadership To Scrap Original Anti-Semitism Resolution. Women's
March co-founder Linda Sarsour explained Friday [3/8/2019] how she and other left-wing organizers influenced the final
language of the "anti-hate" resolution that passed the House Thursday night [3/7/2019]. The resolution, initially
launched as a rebuke exclusively against anti-Semitism following remarks made by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar,
was later broadened to include all forms of bigotry. Sarsour in her video took credit for convincing House Democratic
leadership for "expanding the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry."
Campaign Calls For End To US/Israel Special Relationship In Fundraising Appeal. AOC's campaign sent out an
email on Thursday claiming that AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) is coming after them. "It's
official — AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan and Rashida." The email continued, "Rashida, Ilhan and
Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And
now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it." Perhaps most significant of all, referring to
the US/Israeli friendship, it said, "In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status."
activist posts photos with Rashida Tlaib at swearing-in ceremony. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigan Democrat,
was called out Monday after Palestinian activist Abbas Hamideh, a staunch defender of the terrorist group Hezbollah, posted
photos of the two of them posing at her swearing-in ceremony in Detroit. [...] Critics were quick to point out that
Mr. Hamideh, a co-founder of the pro-Palestinian group Al-Awda, which means "right of return," has a history of
praising Hezbollah leaders such as Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and declaring that Israel has no right to exist.
Rashida Tlaib Delights CAIR.
On September 11, 2001, anyone who said that Americans would one day vote for this would have been torn apart by an enraged
mob: [...] CAIR is a terror-affiliated expansionist Islamic outfit that specializes in lawfare and propaganda. You
might call it the Islamic equivalent of the ACLU.
Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,
and the collapse of the center-left. A real treasure, Omar is. A typical freshman congresswoman sees her
mission as — forgive the expression — bringing home the bacon for her district. Not Ilhan.
Her project is to mainstream anti-Semitic rhetoric within the Democratic Party. Once upon a time, you'd have to visit
the invaluable website of the Middle East Media Research Institute to hear such tripe. Now you just need to flip on
C-SPAN. And Democrats are powerless to stop it. They're tripping over themselves, making rationalizations, dodging
reality, and trying to clean up this anti-Semitic mess. Omar is new to this, they say. She never intended to come
across as anti-Semitic. She can't help it. "She comes from a different culture." She didn't know what she was
saying — she's a moron! She's just trying to "start a conversation" about the policies of Israel's government.
And why are you singling her out, anyway. "She is living through a lot of pain." She's black, she's a woman, and she's
Muslim. You can't condemn her without also condemning white men of privilege. What are you, racist? Islamophobic?
Omar Affair is a turning point. The world's oldest hate finally, officially has found purchase in America with
the support of the world's oldest political party, the Democratic Party of the United States. Yesterday's shameful
House resolution was not so much a turning point for American Jewry as a view of the turning point in the rear view
mirror. Faced with clear examples of Ilhan Omar's Jew-hatred ("anti-Semitism" is a wishy-washy 19th-century British
euphemism that implies that the same people equally hate Jews and Palestinians because they are both Semitic; claiming "dual
loyalties" is not about legitimate criticism of Israel's policies), House Democrats chose to condemn not her, but
"white supremacists" and "Islamophobia."
Omar Supporters Slam Democratic Leadership: 'It is No Longer Political Suicide to Criticize Israel'. Rallying
in support of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), under fire for comments about Israel and Jews, Muslim, left-wing Jewish and
other figures said Wednesday the U.S. was undergoing a time of transition, with criticism of Israel no longer "taboo" or
"political suicide" for members of Congress. At a press event on Capitol Hill, they took the House Democratic
leadership to task for plans to put forward a resolution condemning anti-Semitism — arising from Omar's
controversial remarks but not mentioning her by name — and demanded that the measure be broadened to cover bigotry
of other kinds. Palestinian-American activist and Women's March co-leader Linda Sarsour said the Democratic leadership
should expand the language of the resolution beyond anti-Semitism, to include "Islamophobia, anti-black racism and xenophobia."
Analyst Doug Schoen: Trump Could Get 40% of Jewish Vote. Jewish-American political analyst Doug Schoen
joined Stuart Varney on Friday to discuss the Democrat Party's failure to pass a stand-alone resolution condemning
anti-Semitism by Rep. Ilhan Omar. Schoen told Varney and Co. that if Democrats do not nominate a pro-Israel
candidate Trump could get up to 40% of the Jewish vote and people like him won't be voting for the Democrat.
Democrats Searching for Primary Challenger to Ilhan Omar. Some Democrats have had enough of the repeated
antisemitism coming from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and intend to primary her out of office, several sources familiar with
an effort to recruit a candidate to run against her tell Breitbart News. Several Democrats, speaking on condition of
anonymity, described Omar's repeated antisemitic episodes as "the elephant in the room" distracting from what Democrats are
trying to do in their first few months of a new House majority heading into the all-important 2020 presidential election.
As such, these Democrats say, they are seeking out a primary challenger in Minnesota's fifth congressional district to
remove her from office in the 2020 congressional elections.
Stark Choice Facing Jewish Democrats. The week of March 4, 2019 will go down in history as the week that the
Democratic Party wholly, completely, and unequivocally sold out its Jewish supporters. There is truly no other possible
conclusion. The Democrats' profound moral cowardice and shameful obfuscation this week was, at its core, not about criticism
of the State of Israel's (entirely lawful and morally just) presence in the historical Jewish heartland of Judea and Samaria.
It was not about what Sen. Bernie Sanders (Communist - VT) so mendaciously and disingenuously calls "legitimate criticism of
the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel."
Campaign Emails 'The Jews Are Out To Get Us'. You just can't make this stuff up. At almost the exact same
time Speaker Nancy Pelosi brings an anti-bigotry resolution to the floor for a vote, representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
sends out a campaign email proclaiming the Jews are out to get her.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Minn.) wore the Palestinian flag on election night and a
Palestinian thobe to the House offices, clearly stating where her alliances lie. Islam Enters
Congress. On January 3, 2019, new members of Congress arrived at their Longworth House offices radiating a
contagious excitement. Scores of political fans from Muslim districts in Michigan and Minnesota greeted each other in
Arabic, smiling as if Uncle Sam were Santa Claus bringing gifts to greet the first female Palestinian and the first Somali
members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
This Is Not JFK's Democratic Party. Speaker Nancy Pelosi's House has more women, persons of color and LGBT
members than any House in history — and fewer white males. And Thursday, the day Rashida Tlaib was sworn in,
her hand on a Quran, our first Palestinian-American congresswoman showed us what we may expect. As a rally of leftists
lustily cheered her on, Tlaib roared, "We're gonna impeach the (expletive deleted)!" Not only was no apology forthcoming,
the host of the New American Leaders event where Tlaib spoke warmly endorsed her gutter language.
Dem reps have close relationship with anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, but we're not supposed to notice. It seems no
one celebrated the election of the first two Muslim women to Congress more than highly controversial Linda Sarsour. The
Palestinian American activist and co-organizer of the feminist Women's March on DC was invited to attend the swearing-in
ceremonies of one of the women, fellow Palestinian American Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. [...] Sarsour is considered a
fierce anti-Semite, with rocker Courtney Love going so far as to call her an anti-Semitic terrorist in a series of
tweets — a display of a map in Tlaib's office showing a slight alteration to Israel may convince you that the
newly elected congresswoman shares Sarsour's attitude.
"Make History" in Foreign Garb, Swearing Allegiance on a Quran. Democrats say nothing about the anti-semitism
of new congresspeople in the House as they take an oath which means nothing to them. They are the face of the New
Democratic Party. Ilhan Omar is taking over the seat previously held by Rep. Keith Ellison. The corrupt
media and fellow Democrats portray her as a force against bigotry even though that isn't true. She is an ardent
supporter of anti-Semite, America hater Linda Sarsour and she backs the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel,
despite denying it until she was voted into office.

Ilhan Omar: 'As long as I breathe I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible'. A video
posted Tuesday [3/5/2019] shows a defiant Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) telling a room of supporters not to worry about her and vowing,
"I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible." [Video clip]
The video was posted by Rasha Mubarak, president of the Young Democrats of Orange County (Florida) and has received over one million
views. Mubarak did not post the context of the video, but its posting comes in the midst of a firestorm about Omar's questioning
the loyalty of Jewish-American supporters of Israel. A Democrat resolution against anti-semitism inspired by Omar was postponed
from a planned vote on Wednesday after being fought by progressive and Islamist activists.
Tlaib wrote column for Louis Farrakhan publication in 2006. Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib once
wrote a column for the Final Call, an official publication of the Nation of Islam and its notorious leader Louis
Farrakhan. Tlaib, a Palestinian American, has been facing criticism ever since her arrival in Congress and promise to
impeach President Trump using profane language. She later came under bipartisan criticism from Jewish groups for
appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during her swearing-in ceremony in Michigan, with some activists previously
praising terror group Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists, and saying that Israel has no right to exist.
at the Crossroads. [T]he inconsistency between the views and associations of the [women's] march leaders and
the useful idiots who followed their call was highlighted in recent weeks when the media were compelled to finally report
what had been known for a long time but kept hidden from credulous consumers of their pap: the Women's March leaders were
linked inextricably to Louis Farrakhan, an anti-Semite, anti-homosexual, anti-white propagandist who spreads lies about
slavery — ignoring the most significant role of Moslems in it even to this day. And the press hid the fact
that women like Linda Sarsour were all in for Sharia, the religious-legal system that more than any other punishes women,
gays, and blacks. Sharia creates the submission culture that keeps the poor at the bottom with little chance of upward
mobility and society at such a low level of productivity that environmental protection and proper healthcare are unaffordable,
and legitimizes slavery, which continues in places like North Africa. Indeed, her anti-American point of view was known
months before the march in 2017 but barely, if at all, covered by the mainstream media.
Candidate for Governor Linked to Nation of Islam. Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed was recently
a special guest speaker at a fund raiser for a Nation of Islam (NOI)-affiliated mosque. The Muslim Center Mosque and
Community Center states that it was "founded under the leadership of the late Imam W. Deen Mohammed, a Nation of Islam Leader
and son of its founder, Elijah Muhammad." This is not the first time El-Sayed has spoken at a fundraiser for the mosque.
In October 2017, El-Sayed spoke at their annual fundraiser, alongside radical left-wing activist and sharia apologist Linda
Sarsour. NOI has a long history of extremism. Imam Deen Mohammad's former assistant Imam Mubarak affiliates himself
with the mosque and regularly posts to the Center's Facebook page, including posts describing Jews and Christians as untrustworthy.
Ilhan Omar Knows Exactly What She Is Doing.
There's an old joke about upper-class British anti-Semitism: It means someone who hates Jews more than is strictly
necessary. Ilhan Omar, the freshman representative from Minnesota, more than meets the progressive American version of
that standard. Like many self-described progressives, Omar does not like Israel. That's a shame, not least
because Israel is the only country in its region that embraces the sorts of values the Democratic Party claims to
champion. When was the last time there was a gay-pride parade in Ramallah, a women's rights march in Gaza, or an
opposition press in Tehran? In what Middle Eastern country other than Israel can an attorney general indict a popular
and powerful prime minister on corruption charges? But America is a free country, and Omar is within her rights to
think what she will about Israel or any other state. Contrary to a self-serving myth among Israel's detractors, there's
rarely a social or reputational penalty for publicly criticizing Israeli policies today. It's ubiquitous on college
campuses and commonplace in editorial pages.
Criticism' of Israel is Democrats' Phony Excuse for Ilhan Omar's Antisemitism. House Democrats failed Wednesday
to introduce a resolution condemning antisemitism, which had been promised in response to the latest antisemitic remarks by
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tried to contain the political damage, claiming
that repeat-offender Omar was not "intentionally antisemitic." Other Democrats found another excuse: they claimed
criticizing Omar would stifle "legitimate criticism" of Israel.
Clyburn digs Dems deeper, makes 'offensive' Holocaust comparison to defend Ilhan Omar. In the running list of
excuses made by the left for Rep. Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitism, Rep. James Clyburn just offered his stunning
addition. The South Carolina Democrat suggested Wednesday [3/6/20109] that Omar's experience of escaping violence in
Somalia where she was born was "more personal" than that of Jews who had parents survive the Holocaust, The Hill reported.
Collaborators. If the Democrats have a minor socialist problem, they have a major problem in the form of
Jew-hating weirdos, preeminent among them the Reverend Louis Farrakhan of the so-called Nation of Islam. Farrakhan has
been an out-and-proud Jew-hating weirdo for many decades now, but Democrats still feel the need to make gestures of obeisance
before him: Anti-Trump leaders such as Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour of the Women's March have embraced Farrakhan
and courted his favor. Barack Obama came a-calling in 2005 when he was ramping up his political career. The
Congressional Black Caucus has consulted him. Bill Clinton stood alongside him at Aretha Franklin's funeral, implicitly
elevating the cult leader. California Democrats Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters attend Farrakhan's public events, and
Obama-administration veteran Eric Holder recently posed for a picture with him.
refusal to call out Ilhan Omar's anti-semitism is just appalling. It's really not hard to get to the bottom of
this: When you say that Jews have magical hypnotic powers to control other people, you're an anti-Semite. When
you say Jews control other people through money, you're an anti-Semite. When you say Jews have conspired to force you
to apologize for saying anti-Semitic things, you're an anti-Semite. Ilhan Omar is an anti-Semite. Now what?
Well, now nothing. For a while this week there was a thought that the House of Representatives, where Omar serves as a
freshman from Minnesota, might vote on a resolution condemning her anti-Semitism. Then it was thought that maybe said
resolution would come up for a vote but wouldn't mention her name and instead condemn anti-Semitism generally.
Congresswoman Swears to "Transform Our Democracy". Communist/Democratic Socialist Ilhan Omar, who appears to
have married her brother while married possibly as part of an immigration scam, plans to bring 'resist' to congress to
'transform' the USA through legislation in order to "transform our government and our democracy". 'Democracy' is the
buzzword of the Socialist/Communist. We live in a constitutional Republic. Omar said, "And so we are just
really excited to get to work and make sure that the words we said on the campaign trail transform into legislation that will
transform our government and our democracy."
Cardoza-Moore claims Ilhan Omar may have ties to Muslim Brotherhood. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations called on the US Justice Department "to launch a full and thorough investigation"
into Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) "possible connections to the Muslim Brotherhood." Cardoza-Moore, an
Evangelical leader who hosts the popular Christian television program Focus On Israel, which reaches nearly two billion
viewers globally, said on Wednesday that "while she has already established her credentials as a vehement antisemite, Ilhan
Omar is far worse than that." "Omar may be in violation of a federal statute for fundraising for two Muslim Brotherhood
charities that seek to destroy America," she claimed. She made it clear "Omar's antisemitic comments do not reflect the
values of Americans," adding that the people of America "demand that the Justice Department conduct a full and thorough
investigation into her possible connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates."
Pelosi Overrules Engel's Call for Ilhan Omar to Apologize for 'Vile Antisemitic Slur'. House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday did not call for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to apologize for her latest anti-Jewish remark,
overruling House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY), who demanded the freshman congresswoman apologize for
her "vile antisemitic slur" last week. Speaking before reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday [3/7/2019], Pelosi said she
doesn't believe Omar suggesting pro-Israel groups pressure lawmakers into hold "allegiance" to a foreign country was made
with "any antisemitic attitude."
Democrats accuse Pelosi of rushing resolution over Omar tweets. House Democrats confronted Speaker Nancy Pelosi
and other party leaders Wednesday, accusing them in a closed-door meeting of rushing a resolution that would indirectly
rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar for her comments about Israel. The bickering broke out at a Democratic caucus meeting in
which some Democrats faulted Pelosi for failing to handle the controversy and for not keeping lawmakers in the loop.
Rep. Jahana Hayes of Connecticut was among those pressing Pelosi about why they weren't consulted about the response to
Omar before hearing on cable TV what would happen.
have only themselves to blame for Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments. With zero apologies to the
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the chickens of the Democratic Party are coming home to roost. Dems are now squawking mad
over the overtly anti-Semitic comments of freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. With some fanfare, Speaker Nancy
Pelosi said the House would pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, citing charges Omar has raised repeatedly, including
"the myth of dual loyalty." Unfortunately, Omar's colleagues are not mad enough to name the very person whose conduct
they are denouncing. Nor, as it turned out, did they have the votes even to do that. Their latest plan is to
water the resolution down to mush by also condemning other forms of hate, including Islamophobia.
Andrew Gillum Attends Event Hosted
By Anti-Israel Organization Following Mass Attack On Jews. Florida's Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum spoke
at an event hosted by an anti-Israel organization the day after the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. Gillum and his
running mate, Chris King, spoke at a "Muslims for Gillum" rally Sunday [10/28/2018] at Apna Bazar in Orlando, Florida. The event
was co-hosted by Emgage, an American Muslim lobbying organization. Only a day earlier on the Jewish Sabbath, 11 people perished
in the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after an individual carried out a mass shooting while reportedly shouting, "All Jews must
die." Emgage has been a vocal supporter of Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, and repeatedly endorsed his candidacy for governor
Cory Booker Backtracks
After Being Photographed Holding Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Israeli-Wall Sign. Senator Cory Booker was photographed
holding a sign bearing a pro-Palestinian movement slogan. The image appeared on the Twitter feed of the U.S. Campaign
for Palestinian Rights, a self-described "coalition of 330+ groups" working "for a US policy toward Palestine/Israel based on
freedom, justice, and equality." "From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go," the sign read.
Democrats' Ties To Anti-Semite Farrakhan. The New York Times whitewashed several Democrats' ties to Nation of
Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in an article that ran in Wednesday's paper. Farrakhan is a notorious racist and
anti-Semite who has praised Adolf Hitler as a "very great man," called white people "devils," blamed Jews in Hollywood for
gay marriage and described Jews as "satanic." Several congressional Democrats have ties to Farrakhan and the leaders of
Women's March have publicly declared their support for him.
Ilhan Omar's Experience 'More Personal' than Holocaust Is to Many Jews. House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC)
on Wednesday [3/6/2019] defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her latest antisemitic outburst, arguing that her experience of
fleeing violence in Somalia is "more personal" than Jews whose parents survived the Holocaust. Omar is facing blowback
after suggesting last week that pro-Israel groups pressure members of Congress to pledge "allegiance" to a foreign country.
In an interview with the Hill, Clyburn criticized reports omitting mention of Omar escaping Somalia and spending four years in a
Kenyan refugee camp before immigrating to the U.S. "There are people who tell me, 'Well, my parents are Holocaust
survivors.' 'My parents did this.' It's more personal with her," said Clyburn. "I've talked to her, and
I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain."
8 Most Twisted Policy Positions of Your Modern Democrat Party. [#5] The Farrakhan Lovers: While serving
in Congress, eight Democratic members of the House of Representatives met with Louis Farrakhan, who has been labeled "the
leading anti-Semite in America" and praised Adolf Hitler as "a very great man." [#6] Hatred for Midwesterners:
Prominent Democrats have engaged in disdainful and divisive rhetoric towards conservatives: Barack Obama said
small-town voters across the Midwest "cling to guns and religion" while Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump supporters
"deplorables" and implied states that voted for Trump were "backwards looking," sexist, and racist.
Farrakhan, The Left, and
Anti-Semitism. As documented here many, many times, "playing the race card," as racism is politely called these
days, is part and parcel of the Left in America and always has been. What once was slavery and segregation are now
laughably called "identity politics." And most assuredly, a thorough going part of that racism is anti-Semitism. And
when the spotlight is turned on, in this case on a leader of the so-called "Women's March" and various members of the Congressional
Black Caucus or various other lefty Democrats, there is much hemming and hawing at having been caught in the act. But the
"why" behind all of this latest go-round over left-wing support for Farrakhan — the man who once proclaimed that
"Hitler was a great man" — is simple to understand. This streak of racism is part of the larger racial agenda
that the Left has been preaching for decades. To wit: divide by race. Win elections. And if, in
this case, it means hanging with one of the most vicious anti-Semites of the day? So be it.
The New Democratic
Party. [Bernie] Sanders said the US is "complicit" with Israel's "occupation" of Judea and Samaria and
Gaza. He said that he would consider cutting off US military aid to Israel. He argued the US should take a more
evenhanded approach to Israel. No similar statements have ever been made by any major presidential contender or
political leader in either party. And yet, they have raised no outcry among his fellow Democrats. Sanders's rise
has unleashed forces in the party such as former Nation of Islam spokesman Rep. Keith Ellison and BDS activist Linda
Sarsour. Both have been outspoken in their antisemitism. Both routinely defame and delegitimize American Jews who
support Israel. And both are all but unanimously embraced as leaders by their partisan colleagues.
Muslim Face of the New Democratic Party. [Scroll down] One case, among countless others: The
anti-Trump women's march was co-led by an Islamist in a hijab. It is well worth reading the front-page exposé on
Linda Sarsour, because she is a leader of so many of the causes that Obama promoted as president: Occupy Wall St., BDS,
Black Lives Matter, the Muslim Brotherhood. After 9/11, Sarsour rose in power by promoting the jihadi fiction of
"Islamophobia." The Democratic Party uses this accusation to fight Republican national security measures and accord itself
unmerited moral superiority. Sarsour's Islamic group was a big success. It prevented the New York Police
Department from conducting surveillance of Muslim groups and mosques the police suspected of promoting terrorism. For
her work, Ms. Sarsour was honored by President Obama as a "White House Champion of Change" and was invited to the White
House seven times. [...] She did not sneak into the White House or get placed on the podium of the Women's March by
mistake. The Democratic Party rejects moderate Muslims and is happy to ally itself with Muslim-American radicals.
Democrats Are Normalizing Anti-Semitism In Democratic Party. A trio of far-left Democrats are normalizing
blatant anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party as leaders in the party idly stand by and refuse to condemn their actions and
statements. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — all new
members of Congress — have all defended anti-Semites or espoused anti-Semitic positions over the last several months.
sign up with the anti-Semites. It is important that support for Israel in
the US Congress is bipartisan. … Regrettably, this bipartisan support appears to be
slipping away. A year ago, I wrote an article titled Why the left hates
Israel, pointing out how the biggest threat to the Jewish state today comes
from the political left. But I noted then, that at least in Congress, where
support for Israel might be a bit stronger among the GOP than among Democratic
members, the fever swamps of anti-Israel hate had not yet reached into the Democratic
side of the aisle, with the exception of a very few members such as Cynthia McKinney,
Jim Moran, and Fritz Hollings.
Liberation Theology and Antisemitism. Until I started following the threads of Obama's Chicago
history, his church, his other associations, especially the religious ones, I honestly didn't think anyone but
the scantiest few fringe neo-Nazis or throngs of Middle-Eastern Muslims still harbored Jew hatred. But
when I read the Black Liberation Theology books of James H. Cone, I saw a subtly disguised, resentful kind
of antisemitism which I had never encountered before.
Wright: 'Them Jews' Keeping Him from Obama. A day before an anti-Semitic gunman shot and killed
a guard at the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, controversial Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright was making
news with some anti-Jewish comments of his own. In a Tuesday evening [6/9/2009] interview, Wright told a
Virginia reporter that Jewish members of the White House staff had kept him from talking to his former church
member, President Obama, since last November's election.
Obama and 'Them Jews': Do you remember Jeremiah
Wright, the long-time pastor, mentor and spiritual guide to Barack Obama? ... Well, the good reverend is back in the news.
Asked by a reporter if he had recently spoken to the president, Wright said, "Them Jews aren't going to let me talk to him."
"Them Jews" was an apparent reference to several top Obama aides, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
Obama's Pastor Yelps: "Them Jews Aren't Going to
Let Him Talk to Me!". Rev. Wright, who served for many years as Mr. Obama's pastor at the Trinity UCC in
Chicago, said in an interview this week that President Obama had not spoken with him recently because "them Jews aren't
going to let him talk to me." He added: "Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing of the
Zionists is a sin and a crime against humanity."
Rev. Jeremiah Wright and 'them Jews'. What, exactly, did
Wright mean with his remark? Well, at least two things. The first is that Obama is not a man who
knows his own mind or can make his own decisions. He's merely a puppet in the hands of "them Jews."
The second is the premise of all classic Jew-baiters and anti-Semites: That Jews control the economy and
the government and that there is some sort of Jewish cabal that seeks to run the world.
