Dolly: Omar, a freshman member of Congress, has come under fire this week after suggesting on Twitter that supporters of Israel in Congress are bought and paid for by a bipartisan pro-Israel lobbying group. To many, the remark went beyond a critique of money’s influence in politics and evoked the anti-Semitic myth that Jews seek to control the world via money. Rep. Ilhan Omar is doubling down: Jews, she suggests – not just the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobby group — use money to bribe Congress to defend Israel, which it would not otherwise do. Omar —“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,” she tweeted in 2012. Worse, she is evoking ugly anti-Jewish stereotypes, prompting criticism from Jewish leaders and even from some fellow Democrats. There are also well-funded groups that oppose Israel, or Israeli policy. Omar is not opposed to those: before her offensive tirade Sunday, she re-tweeted a statement of support from the Muslim Public Affairs Council, backing her criticism of Israel. Omar came under fire once again last year for doing a flip-flop after her election victory on whether she supports the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement against the Jewish state.During the campaign, she told a group of Jewish voters in her home state that the boycott of Israel was “counteractive”. Fast forward to 2016, Omar – then a Minnesota state representative – went on to ask a judge to show leniency toward a group of Minnesota men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terror group.
