US Congress hopeful denies ‘bigoted’ claims of anti-Semitism

A candidate for US Congress has hit back at claims that comments she made about Israel are anti-Semitic.

In 2012, Somali-American Ilhan Omar accused Israel of “evil doings” during its campaign against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” she wrote at the time.

The tweets have been highlighted as a result of her campaign to run as a candidate for Congress in Minnesota.

She has denied accusations of anti-Semitism.
