“Shameful” Omar rips group of Jewish Democrat colleagues who criticized her, calls them “islamophobic”

Rep. Ilhan Omar fired back at Jewish Democrats for their recent criticism of her comments that compared the U.S. to terrorist organizations.

The group of Democrats had blasted Omar’s comments, saying “equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided.”

Omar has now writted:

It’s shameful for colleagues who call me when they need my support to now put out a statement asking for “clarification” and not just call.

The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive. The constant harassment & silencing from the signers of this letter is unbearable.

Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the ICC isn’t comparison or from “deeply seated prejudice”. You might try to undermine these investigations or deny justice to their victims but history has thought us that the truth can’t be hidden or silenced forever.
