Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar defended asking Allah to help the world see how “evil” the actions of the nation of Israel are and how Israel has “hypnotized” the people of the world during a segment on CNN Thursday.


Hosts brought up a tweet the freshman congresswoman posted in 2012: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

“That’s really a regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans...

Of course, CNN didn’t push back on the anti-Semite... bigot.

If Christian representatives invoke Yahweh to justify defending Israel and all of its political policies, then it's no different for a Muslim to oppose them for the same reasons.

Its funny...in a tragic sort of way...how the media...ESPECIALLY CNN...spend at least an hour every night with Don Lemon, and usually throughout the day as well, calling Trump a racist and bigot, yet don't have the same vehement response to outright bigotry. They say Trump is a bigot with little to no real proof. Yet when faced with this:
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar said:
may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.
Hardly a stir.
Don Lemon, you 2-faced little LIAR! Those who call Trump "Racist", you 2-faced little LIARS!

Ah yes, the right wing idiocy of claiming anybody critical of Isreal is a anti-Semite and bigot. Oh, that's exactly what Israel has hypnotized people to believe, this bull****.

Sorry, Israel murders scientists, murders Palestinians, steals their lands, bombs neighboring countries, and is constantly provocative. Sorry, they are assholes, just as much as Palestinians have been assholes and other countries in that region have as well.

There is nothing racist about being critical of Israel Israel is a country, not a race of people

Didn't say strike down, just said "see". People do need to see Israel is not really the good guy,.

Yeah, that one is comically bad. One can take exception to the policies of a nation and not be prejudiced against the people themselves.

It isn't antisemitic to criticize an action taken by an Israeli government but antisemites using the state of Israel to express their Jew hatred should be called out, always.
The only people who are bothered by this are those who are obsessed with an anti-Israeli agenda, and these are all vile, rabid and repulsive antisemites to the last one of them.

OK they probably do.
And there's allot of unsavory people the Republicans support too.
This is half of my annoyance with all this partisan witch-hunt crap.
You're destroying your own political apparatus with this...war of ideologies.

POLITICIANS ARE PRICKS!
Every single one of them. They do things every hour that have nothing at all to do with the welfare of the people and the nation, and every single one of you know this to be true! So what the hell are y'all doing?

Look...I know half of you have a hate-on for this Trump fellow. But the last 2 year exhibition of abject hatred, directed at solely your own gawd-damn president, is sickening. You people are worse than the bloody TBaggers!
Please...all of you..grow up a bit.
Every single human on this rock is racist. You are...I am...Trump is...Obama is...Billy-Boy...even the Dhali Lama.
If this hard-line stance, and this unbridled hatred continues...can you say Civil War? Do you want the USA to degrade to the point most of Europe has?

Both sides need to turn the taps down a bit.
And for gawd's sake, I think I'd have a heart attack should I see a Libbie decry the openly hate-filled BS that jack-ass Don Lemon spews forth nightly.
He needs to go...

BTW zimmer: I didn't mean to single your post out in particular. I just used it as a "launching point". Nothing personal mate.

It is just a bigoted to claim that Israel can do no wrong. Do you think they are gods?

How so? Is it also anti-Semitic when Jews criticize Israel? Many do not agree with their policies.

Not agreeing with a decision of an Israeli government isn't antisemitic at all.

Those who are obsessed with an anti-Israeli world view and believe Israel to be the root of all evil and all of that nonsense are using the world's only Jewish state as a form to express their Jew hatred.
It's pretty simple.

I still fuzzy on this semantic difference. It is the term "evil" that crosses the line? Many Jews think Israels policies against the Palestinians are wrong and that is what this Congressman was expressing. Is it antisemitic to want a Palestinian State? Because many Jews do too.

Don't understand what's not clear about what I said.
Being against a policy is fine. Being in support of a Palestinian state is a position held by many Israelis, what's this to do with antisemitism? You're clearly lost in confusion.
What's clear is that the obsession against Israel is antisemitic in its nature.

Also not understanding your repeated use of Jews holding such and such views. It doesn't matter at all if a person holds an antisemitic opinion and he is Jewish or not. It's extremely racist to believe that saying "All Jews must burn" for example is fine as long as the one saying it is Jewish. It remains a rabid and vile racist expression in either case.

Once again right wingers want to equate opposition to Israel as inherently anti-semitic. Pathetic.
