12 Jewish House Democrats issued a statement condemning Omar’s recent comments equating the U.S. alongside terrorist organizations including Hamas and the Taliban.
The group wrote that “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided…The United States and Israel are imperfect…but false equivalencies give cover to terrorist groups.”
This was the original video/ tweet that set off the firestorm.
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
