Former President Barack Hussein Obama’s senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has made it clear that she fully supports the glaring antisemitism of newly elected Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

The revelation was unveiled in a tweet she posted Wednesday.

“Shake him up, @IlhanMN! We have your back,” she tweeted to the Muslim congresswoman, referencing Omar’s Twitter fight with Republican congressman Lee Zeldin.

The fight started Tuesday when Zeldin took to Twitter to lament the fact that Omar, an antisemite and terrorist sympathizer, had been given a role on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“Was just selected as Ranking Member of the @HouseForeign Subcommittee on Oversight & Investigations! Just learned Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar was also put on this committee w oversight of US foreign policy. Crazy to watch what House Dems are empowering/elevating,” he wrote.


Omar responded the next evening by tweeting, “Don’t mind him, he is just waking up to the reality of having Muslim women as colleagues who know how to stand up to bullies!”

“It’s gonna be fun watching him lose his marbles,” she added.


It was this tweet that Jarrett had been responding to. It’s unclear whether she ever saw the reply that Zeldin issued in response to Omar’s rude and unprofessional mockery.

“Those poor innocent ISIS fighters & Palestinian terrorists right? Give me a break!” he wrote, highlighting the time three years ago that the Muslim congresswoman wrote a letter to a Minnesota judge asking him to show leniency to men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terrorist network.

“That’s a problem no matter your religion or gender Ilhan. Your anti-Semitic & anti-Israel hate is strong & wrong & those terrorists have US blood on their hands as well.”


Omar is also a rabid antisemite who makes highly controversial and oftentimes disparaging remarks about Israel on a near-daily basis. It’s unclear whether Jarrett is simply unaware of Omar’s antisemitism and terror sympathies, or whether she just doesn’t care.

Just this week she suggested in an interview with Yahoo News that Israel shouldn’t exist as a Jewish state, that Israel isn’t a democracy and that Israel is somehow equivalent to Iran, an Islamic country where homosexuality is punishable by death.



This comes amid her reportedly hijacking Holocaust Memorial Day, calling Israel an “evil” state that has “hypnotized the world,” pushing a homophobic conspiracy theory about Sen. Lindsey Graham, hobnobbing with notorious antisemite Linda Sarsour and siding with a hate group.

This is the unscrupulous woman whom Jarrett has chosen to defend. If you’re stunned, have no fear — you’re not alone. Look at the reaction on social media below:

Ultimately, Jarrett’s defense of Omar isn’t surprising given the anti-Israel administration she once worked for.
