The Democratic Party's Smoldering Antisemitism and Affinity with Islam


Introduction:
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 they came.

Overview:
'Progressive' = 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.

Rashida 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.

Israel 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.

Here's 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.

Leading 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.

Ilhan 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.

The Democrats 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.

RJC 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.

Jews 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.

Anti-Trump 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.

Liz 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 two-state solution.

Elizabeth 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.

Far-Left 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).

Bernie 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.

Report: 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.

American 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.

Miami 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.

Lee 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.

New 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 regarding Wright-Piersanti.

Rep. Mo Brooks:  "Growing Influence Of The Islamic Religion In Democratic Party" Fuels Anti-Israel, Anti-Jewish Views.  Wednesday during an appearance on "The Jeff Poor Show" on Alabama's WVNN radio, Rep. Mo Brooks warned that the "growing influence" of Islam in the Democratic Party will eventually lead to the party becoming "very strongly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel."  "Keep in mind — Muslims, more so than most people, have great animosity towards Israel and the Jewish faith," Brooks noted.

Democrats 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.

A 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.

Don't 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.

Ilhan 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.

Why 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.

House 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.

Report: 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.

House 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.

McCarthy on the Antisemitism 'Growing Around the World': 'We Haven't Seen Something Like This Since the 1930s'.  On Wednesday's [8/14/2019] broadcast of Fox News Channel's "Special Report," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) appeared on location in Israel to discuss that trip he was on with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.  McCarthy told host Bret Baier that he and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) wanted to show those members the threats from Hezbollah to Israel.

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.

Netanyahu: 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.

Ilhan 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.

Here's 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.

Rep. 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!

Israel's 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.

Bernie 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.

Thank 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.

Ilhan 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.

Sanders says he would 'absolutely' consider cutting US military aid to Israel.  U.S. presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says while he is "not anti-Israel," America "cannot just be pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel," but has to be "pro-region."

Jake 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.

BDS 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.["]

Another 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 Thursday afternoon.

The Left 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.

CNN 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.

Why the 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.

House 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.

Jewish 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 Jewish inhabitants.

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.

Ilhan 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.

Omar introduces resolution defending boycott of Israel, likens it to boycotts of Nazi Germany, Soviet Union.  U.S. 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 banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so 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. 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.

Omar to Introduce Resolution Declaring Support for Anti-Israel BDS Movement.  Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) will introduce a resolution this week declaring support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to elevate the Palestinian negotiating position vis-a-vis Israel through an international pressure campaign.

Trump 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.

Rep. 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.

Warren: I Would Push Israel to End Occupation of Palestinian Territories.  2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) told activists at an event Monday that she supported pressuring Israel to, in their words, "end occupation" of Palestinian territories.

Liberals 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.

Mark 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.

AOC 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:

Principal 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."

Spate 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[.]"

Anti-Semitism 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.

Is 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.

D.C. 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.

Dyke 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.

"We 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.

De Blasio's 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 anti-American sentiments.

Who's 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.

Calling 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.

Socialist 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.

The 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.

Rashida 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."

The 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.

Why 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.

Democrats 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.

Sorry, Rashida Tlaib:  Israel was not a consolation prize for Jews after the Holocaust.  Recent assertions made by Rep. Rashida Tlaib regarding the Holocaust and the establishment of the State of Israel have no foundation in the historical record.  In this imagined version of history, after the Holocaust, the Jews were awarded a consolation prize — the establishment of Israel — at the expense of those already living there.

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.

From Rashida 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."

A 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 the truth.

Top Democrats' defense of Rashida Tlaib's Holocaust inversion and revisionism is unforgivable.  Tlaib falsely portrayed Palestinians as the true victims of the Holocaust who suffered by providing Jews 'safe haven' during and after the Holocaust.  Yet Nancy Pelosi and Stenny Hoyer demand an apology not from Tlaib, but from her critics.

Rashida 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.

Anti-Semites R'us.  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.

The 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.

Ilhan 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."

Congresswoman 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: [...]

House 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.

Mike 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."

Rep. 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."

Ilhan 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."

Rep. 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.

Zuhdi 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."

Omar: 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.

Rep. 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.

Ilhan 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.

Virulent 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 Palestinians" card.

Hey, Congressmuslim Ilhan Omar, are there any Islamic terrorists you don't support?  'How many times will YOU defend TERRORISTS'?! Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) rightly attacks Ilhan Omar for blaming Israel for attacks on Israel by Hamas.  Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) attempts to educate this little Somali Muslim infiltrator.

Ilhan 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.

'What's Pelosi going to do?' Rudy Giuliani asks, after Tlaib calls Palestinians 'our people'.  Rudy Giuliani has pointedly asked, "What is Pelosi going to do?" about Rashida Tlaib.  Giuliani was referring specifically to Tlaib's tweet of support for the Hamas terrorist 700-rocket barrage on Israel this weekend that killed at least 4 Israeli civilians and injured dozens.

Why 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.

The 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.

Today's 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.

Ilhan 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 Twitter.

Also posted under Islamic indoctrination in schools.

Two 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 communities.

The 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."

6 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.

Report: 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.

The Terrorist 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.

Rashida 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.

Democrats 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 property loss.

Tulsi 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).

Pelosi: '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.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brands Benjamin Netanyahu a 'Trump-like figure' and says that America should consider cutting military and economic aid to Israel.  Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for being an authoritarian, 'Trump-like figure' while suggesting that US military and economic aid to Israel should be cut.  The Representative for New York, a rising star in her party, has insisted that the idea of cutting aid to Israel should 'definitely be on the table'.  The 29-year-old has been criticised by the Jewish Democratic Council of America for the comments, with the organisation saying that US-Israel ties 'must supersede politics'.

Making 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.

Photos 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 Ilhan Omar.

Why 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.

Truly 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.

Beto 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.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke Calls Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu a 'Racist'.  Democrat presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "racist" on Sunday, telling an audience in Iowa that the U.S.-Israel relationship must "transcend a prime minister who is racist."

Trump 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 allowed that."

Swastika-Clad 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 nationalism."

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."

Rashida 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.

Ben 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.

Too 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.

Kamala 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.

Women's 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.

Pompeo 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."

Rolling Stone cover
Rep. 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 dominate policy.


2020 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.

More about Obama and Iran.

2020 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.

Rep. 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.

Heavy 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.

Omar 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.

Nine 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.

The 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 time coming.

Hollow 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.

Omar 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.

President 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.

Pompeo: 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.

No 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.

When 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.

The 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.

Freshman Dem Rep. 'Horrified' by Ilhan Omar's Antisemitic Comments.  Freshman Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) on Tuesday apologized to his constituents at a town hall who were offended by Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) latest antisemitic outburst, saying he was "horrified" by his colleague's controversial remarks.

Judge 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.

Bizarre 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.

Ilhan 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. [...]

We 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.

Progressive 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?

Nancy 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.

The 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 in Minnesota.

Dem 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.

Barack 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.

The 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.

Dem Rep. Tlaib:  Ilhan Omar Is 'an Easier Target' Because She's Black and Muslim.  Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said the bipartisan outrage over controversial remarks made about Israel by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was "because she's Muslim and because she's black, she's an easier target for them to attack."

Chelsea 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.

Why 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".

Leftists 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 republic itself.

Outraged 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 press conference.

Before 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."

The 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.

Did 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.

Omar 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.

Tlaib 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.

Assyrian 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."

Liberal 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.

Jewish 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.

Virginia 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.

How Do 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?

Rank-and-file 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.

Ilhan 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.

Ilhan 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."

Ten Years Ago Today:  Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar Marries Her Biological Brother from Somalia.  Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.  The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

Pelosi Releases Weak Statement on Anti-Semite Democrat Ilhan Omar, But Won't Kick Her Off Foreign Affairs Committee.  Anti-Jew Democrat lawmaker Ilhan Omar continued her string of anti-Semitic tweets on Monday morning following a night of controversial statements.  Rep. Ilhan Omar has a record of radical statements and positions.  Ilhan Omar also called for a lenient sentence against an ISIS supporter in Minnesota just three years ago, in 2016.  And Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar blamed the US for the al-Shabab attack at a Kenyan mall killing nearly 70 people.

Rashida 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.

Pelosi, 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.

House 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."

As 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 anti-Semitism.

President 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.

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.

Leading 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.

Where's 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.

Ilhan 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.

Omar 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."

Nervous 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.

FBI 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.

Ilhan Omar [defies] Pelosi and the DNC bows to Islam.  It has begun.  It will not be long before DNC meetings begin with the Islamic call to prayer.  Nancy Pelosi has surrendered her party to Islam.  No matter what Pelosi says, Ilhan Omar is now in command.

As 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.

The 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.

Taxpayers should 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."

The Nazification 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.

Nancy 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.

Linda 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.

Tlaib 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). [...]"

Dem 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."

Ilhan Omar Suggests Israel Should Not Be Allowed To Exist As Jewish State, Suggests Not A 'Democracy'.  Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggested in an interview this week that Israel should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state, Israel is not a democracy, and compared Israel to Iran  — which is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Rep. 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.

Red 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.

Rep. 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.

Pelosi, 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.

Ilhan 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.

Omar's 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.

Pelosi 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.

Democrat 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."

Nancy 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.

Linda 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."

AOC 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."

Rep. Tlaib Guest Praised the Murderer of a Jewish 4-Year-Old Girl.  The media isn't outraged over this.  It's refusing to report it.  Meanwhile it's outraged that someone suggested that Rep. Tlaib might be a terrorist because of her association with terrorist supporters.

Pro-Hezbollah 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?

The 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."

Ilhan 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."

Jewish 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.

Some 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.

Trump says Democrats have become 'anti-Jewish' party, calls bigotry resolution a 'disgrace'.  President Trump accused Democrats on Friday [3/8/2019] of becoming an "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish" party, after the House passed a broad resolution that called out bigotry of all kinds without directly condemning freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar for allegedly anti-Semitic remarks.

The 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."

AOC 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.

No, 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.

New 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.

Leftists "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.

Defiant 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.

Rashida 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.

Intersectionality 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.

Michigan 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.

'Legitimate 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.

Anti-Semite Linda Sarsour and CAIR Hold Rally in Washington DC for Ilhan Omar, Abuse Reporter.  Women's March founder and noted anti-Semite Linda Sarsour and Niwad Awad, the Executive Director of CAIR, held a rally today in Washington DC in support of Rep. Ilhan Omar.  Sarsour was asked if she believed the nation of Israel has a right to exist — She refused to answer.  The group then walked the halls of Congress in support of Ilhan Omar.

Rep 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.

Anti-Semitism's 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.

Democrats' 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.

Subversive 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."

Laurie 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."

Nancy 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."

House 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.

Ilhan Omar will remain on the House of Foreign Affairs Committee.  Rep. Ilhan Omar will keep her position on the House Foreign Affairs Committee despite demands that she step down for making remarks considered anti-Semitic.

Dems 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 Marches With Anti-Semitic Racist Who Led Anti-Semitic Pogrom.  If the left really cares about anti-Semitism, maybe it should stop palling around with anti-Semites?

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 of Florida.

6 Liberal Democrats Photographed With Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.  Here are five photos of prominent Democrats with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam — a man who recently compared Jews to termites.

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.

NYT Whitewashes 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.

Clyburn: 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."

The 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.

The 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.

Far-Left 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.

The Democrats 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.

Obama, Black 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.

Jeremiah 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.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright says "Jews" are keeping him from President Obama.  Same brashness.  Same spontaneity.  Same lightning-rod remarks.  If you were thinking the Rev. Jeremiah Wright had been tempered by a national backlash that nearly derailed Barack Obama's trip to the White House, guess again.

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.
