Failed to apologize for an antisemitic tweet that, she says, she now realizes is “offensive,” but refuses to delete;
In response, Omar retweeted a number of supporters — including one who tried linking Zeldin to Nazis:
Zeldin is Jewish.
As if her anti-Israel views were not discriminatory.
But to Omar, a “Jewish state” cannot be a democracy. That is the warped view of an antisemite.
She said that she would continue criticize Israel, regardless.
And the tweet remains live.
Democrats have also, independently, become hostile to Israel.
It is alarming enough that people who hold anti-Israel views, and use antisemitic rhetoric, are elected to Congress — but that is up to the voters in their districts
Democrats should do the same to Omar. Let her rant against Israel if she wants — from the back benches. (via @joelpollak)
