Ilhan Omar Spoke the Truth | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Ilhan Omar Spoke the Truth

In a widely-reprinted National Review column of March 8, Israel advocate Jonah Goldberg demonstrated how deceitful attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s supposed anti-Semitism really are. Goldberg goes on for paragraphs claiming that Omar demonizes Jews with "classic anti-Semitic claims" about Jewish wealth and power.

What he doesn’t do, even once, is quote what Rep. Omar actually said, instead making up charges such as, "The gist of Omar’s complaints is that the perfidious, string-pulling Hebraic hordes control Congress with their shady shekels, Israel has hypnotized the world, and American Jews are guilty of dual loyalty."

This is typical of the smears critics Left and Right heaped on Omar. But in reality, she said nothing anti-Jewish. She didn’t mention Jews at all. She simply pointed out the obvious fact that the Israel Lobby spends large amounts of money supporting politicians who favor Israel and opposing politicians who don’t. As a result, she says, "I am told every day that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel. I find that to be problematic, and I am not alone."
