Robert Spencer: Democrats Again Show Their Antisemitism with Placement of Ilhan Omar On Foreign Affairs Committee

The Washington Examiner reported Thursday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), whose open hatred of Jews should have rendered her unelectable to Congress, has instead been rewarded with a plum appointment to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

This shows the extent to which open anti-Semitism has become mainstream and normalized on the Left today. In fact, it is likely that Omar’s paranoid hatred of Israel, rooted in Islamic anti-Semitism, made her a good candidate for this position in the eyes of Democrat leaders, who have been following a consistent anti-Israel line for years.

“Israel has hypnotized the world,” Omar wrote in a now-infamous weet. “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”
