WASHINGTON – The American Jewish Committee said that the bilingual story of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Was "astoundingly anti-Semitic" about the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and Chelsea Clinton also closed the "anti-Semitic language and tropics".
Omar initially responded "It's all about the Benjamins baby" to a tweet about house minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) In search of action against her and against Rashida Tlaib's (D-Mich.) Anti-Israeli statements .
Batya Ungar-Sargon, opinion editor at The Forward, tweeted in response: "Would like to know who according to @IlhanMN American politicians pay to be pro-Israel, although I think I can guess it Bad form, Congressman, that is the second anti-Semitic trope you have tweeted."
Omar said with reference to the tweet: "AIPAC!"
The AJC tweeted on the congresswoman, "@IlhanMN, suggesting that a Jewish organization buying American politicians is both demonstrably fake and stunningly anti-Semitic American politicians are pro-Israel because Americans are (http://bit.ly/2SES7DG). . "
"We are proud to be involved in the democratic process to strengthen the US-Israeli relationship," tweeted AIPAC. "Our dual efforts are a reflection of American values and interests and we will not be put off in any way by ill-informed and unlawful attacks on this important work."
And Chelsea Clinton tweeted in reply to Omar: "We would expect that all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures, are not in anti-Semitism movement."
"We have to evoke anti-Semitic language and faces on all sides, especially with our elected representatives and especially now," Clinton added.
"Chelsea – I'd like to talk, we should name Pap smears from the GOP and their allies, and I believe we can do that without criticizing people for their faith," Omar tweeted on the former first daughter. "I look forward to building an inclusive movement for justice with you."
