Hi @bariweiss,

You are correct when you say,

“Perhaps Ms. Omar is sincerely befuddled and not simply deflecting”

In all sincerity, it was after my CNN interview that I heard from Jewish orgs. that my use of the word “Hypnotize” and the ugly sentiment it holds was offensive.
That statement came in the context of the Gaza War.

It’s now apparent to me that I spent lots of energy putting my 2012 tweet in context and little energy is disavowing the anti-semitic trope I unknowingly used, which is unfortunate and offensive.
With that said, it is important to distinguish between criticizing a military action by a government and attacking a particular people of faith.

I will not shy away of criticism of any government when I see injustice —whether it be Saudi Arabia, Somalia, even our own government!

At the conclusion of #MLKDay, a brief thread about my father and how we can authentically honor him. #MLK90 #MLK:
He was a global, comprehensive thinker who believed that all of humanity is interconnected.
He was not anti-political. He believed that laws should reflect a quest for justice and peace. And he worked and protested for legislative change.

Let us also remember, the govt was found liable in his death. To continue pushing the narrative that King volunteered as tribute is inaccurate, violent, proves just how far this country is willing to go to erase its sins instead of confronting them. #MLK90
In playing this erasure game, it reveals the insidious nature of this country. It is not the goal to acknowledge and rectify to make sure this doesn’t happen again. It’s practice to make sure that when it does, we can give a whitewashed account with a smile on our face. #mlkday

Today, his birthday (#MLK90) thru Monday (#MLKDay), my father will be quoted more than he is during any other time throughout the year. A thread with a few things to consider about #MLK:
He was a purveyor of peace, but it is contrary to the authentic King to call for peace without being a doer and seeker of justice. He said, “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” #MLK #MLK90
He was a love and truth revolutionary.
He taught, led and worked for the eradication of white supremacy, not the eradication of white people. #MLK90 #MLK
