Rep. Ilhan Omar lashed out at a dozen of her colleagues, Thursday, slamming a statement made by a dozen Jewish Democrats criticizing comments Omar made on Twitter that appeared to accuse the United States and Israel of “crimes against humanity” and compare the two democratic nations to terrorist groups, Hamas and the Taliban.
As The Daily Wire reported earlier Thursday, the Jewish Democrats’ statement took issue with Omar’s words and demanded Omar clarify whether she believes that the United States and Israel are morally equivalent to designated terror groups.
“Reps. Brad Schneider (IL), Jake Auchincloss (MA), Ted Deutch (FL), Lois Frankel (FL), Josh Gottheimer (NJ), Elaine Luria (VA), Kathy Manning (NC), Jerrold Nadler (NY), Dean Phillips (MN), Kim Schrier (WA), Brad Sherman (CA), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) slammed Omar in a statement,” The Daily Wire noted.
“Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided,” the group, led by Rep. Schneider, wrote.
