Per Fox News “Omar has faced scrutiny in the past for a slew of anti-Israel comments, which led to the House passing a resolution to condemn “anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism and other forms of bigotry.”
Here are some of Omar’s controversial now deleted tweets from the past.
Omar is joined by fellow squad members AOC and Rashida Tlaib in their view of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., fired back after President Biden’s statement on the current violence, saying that he gave little context to the situation and was “siding with the occupation.” Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., on Monday said Israel is “promoting racism and dehumanization” under an “apartheid system” that discriminates against Palestinians,” the report adds.
