Hundreds of Jews and their supporters gathered in New York City’s Times Square to stage a protest calling for the immediate removal of freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Many of the protesters are calling for Congress to charge her with ethics violations for her anti-Semitic and anti-American remarks. Well, the Minnesota Congresswoman is furious, and she lashed out. You don’t want to miss this.
Protesters gathered in New York City’s Times Square late Monday to call for the removal of freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal. She is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the US legislature.
“In my lifetime, I cannot think of any other politician who presents a bigger threat to the alliance between the US and Israel and to America’s Jews,” Diamond told The Jerusalem Post ahead of Monday’s protest. “This woman is an ardent antisemite, and she doesn’t even try to hide it.”
Omar’s critics had planned to launch a billboard with redacted quotes from the politician, alongside graphic 9/11 imagery. The group, named “Ilhan Must Go,” was prepared to spend thousands of dollars on the billboard, with donations from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Zionist Organization of America and others.
Instead, the detractors put the video display on a truck, as they were unable to receive a stationary billboard permit from comrade Bill de Blasio’s cronies in New York City, which cited the ad as “disparaging.”
“Ilhan and her clique are well aware of what we are doing,” Diamond added. “And we’re not done. Everyone left really energized – ready to do whatever must be done next.”
“We have to utilize every mechanism of media to wake up Americans about the vile hatred of this woman,” Cardoza-Moore said. “Christians should also be alarmed. Ilhan Omar is a huge threat to our national security.”
Omar has previously called for defunding the entire Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and called for abolishing ICE last week, along with ending deportations and ending the criminalization of migrants illegally entering the United States.
If she isn’t removed, & Jewish Reps remain silent their seats won’t be safe in 2020. Silence is complicity & the Dems seem to have placed their bet on the antisemitic horses! pic.twitter.com/KbdarvT3Bs

Here are just a few examples, as reported by The Daily Wire, of Omar’s anti-Semitism:
Omar has been condemned by Congress and many of her Democratic colleagues multiple times over her blatant anti-Semitism, which includes promoting a conspiracy theory that Nazi Germany used to demonize Jews; supporting the anti-Semitic BDSmovement; suggesting that Israel should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state; claiming without evidence that her “Jewish colleagues” had devised a scheme to silence her criticism of Israel; falsely claiming that pro-Israel groups were paying off American politicians to be loyal to Israel; and claiming without evidence that her Democratic colleagues were expecting her to have dual loyalties.
How is Omar reacting? Well, there is no doubt she is furious. As these stories of the protest were hitting the internet, the Minnesota Congresswoman lashed out by pinning a tweet to her Twitter account about white nationalists attacking mosques, and she adds “synagogues,” as proof she really isn’t a rabid anti-Semite.
“You have people now in the name of faith taking the lives of people in a place of worship. That sort of stripping of morality and humanity, it’s one that should shake all of us to our core.”

Well, Omar isn’t convincing anyone after years of blatantly anti-Semitic remarks that she has turned over a new leaf and is now a supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.
“While in the Army in Germany I visited Dachau, twice! The most profound and disturbing experience of my life. We must NEVER forget! I agree, what the left is shoveling is dangerous. Ilhan Omar, just to name one, MUST GO! We have no room or tolerance for anti-semitic rhetoric,” tweeted Dan Bertucci.

Rep. Ilhan Omar came to Washington D.C. and continued the anti-Israel attacks that she has been engaging in for years. Then, she belittled the 9/11 attacks, and Americans were outraged. Enough is enough. The Minnesota Congresswoman has no business sitting on the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee.
How can someone who hates our biggest ally in the Middle East, and resents America’s binding resolve to eradicate Islamic extremists, set out the foreign policy? It’s ridiculous. The best solution is to just vote the Democrat out in 2020. Let’s hope and pray the good people in Minnesota can solve America’s Omar problem once and for all.
