Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin, who’s Jewish, called out Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her nonstop anti-Semitic rhetoric, noting that she continues to support anti-Jewish groups linked to the terrorist group Hamas.
Zeldin was reacting after Omar gave a speech during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing supporting a resolution promoting the BDS movement. The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is a Palestinian-led campaign promoting punishment of Israel.
“The BDS movement has not distanced itself from Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization,” Zeldin said. “BDS supporters individually are not distancing themselves from Hamas, either.”
Omar won’t condemn Hamas official who wants death of all Jews
Zeldin pointed out that a top Hamas official called for the death of all Jews last week. Predictably, anti-Semites like Ilhan Omar refuse to condemn this violent rhetoric.
“There are members of this House who continue to prop up the BDS movement and blame Israel for all its challenges,” Zeldin said. “Israel is our best ally in the Middle East — a beacon of hope, freedom and liberty surrounded by existential threats.”
“Shame on Representative Omar for bringing her hateful twist of this reality the [House Foreign Affairs] committee and this chamber.”

Omar’s anti-Jewish rhetoric promotes anti-Semitism in Congress
On July 16, Omar introduced a resolution to support boycotts of Israel, comparing those anti-Jewish activists to the American Jews who boycotted Nazi Germany.
Zeldin said enough is enough, and that American Jews are getting enraged by Omar’s continued anti-Semitism.
“We have witnessed the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel hate throughout the world, in our nation, on college campuses and within the halls of Congress, and whether this bigotry is brazen or it’s blatant anti-Semitism deceptively called ‘legitimate,’ we must crush it wherever it exists,” Zeldin told the Washington Examiner.
Zeldin added: “Unfortunately, there are members of this House who have emboldened this rhetoric and continued to prop up the BDS movement whose founder, in referring to Zionism, said ‘I, for one, support euthanasia [of Jews].’ I’d strongly caution my colleagues that there is no moral equivalency at all to be drawn between the BDS movement attacking Israel and opposition to the Nazis or the Boston Tea Party.”

As BizPac Review reported, the feud between Lee Zeldin and Ilhan Ilhan erupted in January 2019, after Zeldin expressed concern that Omar ― a noted anti-Semite and terrorist sympathizer ― had just joined the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Reminder: Anti-Semites also hate Christians
Naturally, Omar tried to deflect from her history of anti-Semitism by suggesting that Zeldin has a problem working with a Muslim.
In reality, Lee Zeldin and other Jewish-Americans are genuinely worried because several anti-Israel Muslim lawmakers are in this year’s freshman class. Israel is a longstanding ally and friend to the United States.
Ilhan has stated that Israel is not a democracy and should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state.
Reminder: People who hate Jews also despise Christians.

Muslim lawmakers think their job is to only represent other Muslims
Meanwhile, Muslim Congressman Andre Carson projects that the US Congress will have 30 to 35 Muslim representatives by 2030. “We’ve got [Muslim] firepower in Congress!” Carson declared.
Moreover, Carson fantasizes that the US President, Vice President, and Speaker of the House of Representatives will all be Muslim in a few short years. Carson’s pro-Islam agenda for the United States mirrors the sentiments of Ilhan Omar.

Keep in mind that while Omar and her allies repeatedly slam President Trump and all his supporters as racist, they only care about supporting “black, brown and Muslim voices.”
Rep Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice” pic.twitter.com/2NIj5Vvcor
