  • Ilhan Omar Says AIPAC Pays Politicians To Be Pro-Israel

She retweeted another post that read, "accurately describing how the Israel lobby works is not anti-Semitism".

Greenwald accused McCarthy of unjustly attacking the freshmen Muslim congresswomen, to which Omar replied, "It's all about the Benjamins, baby". Taken together, she appeared to suggest that Republican outrage was rooted in money.

She later named AIPAC as the organization paying American politicians to be pro-Israel. "Bad form, Congresswoman. That's the second ant-Semitic trope you've tweeted".

Her tweets suggested that there was money behind US policy in relation to Israel that was coming from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rep.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leads a group of top Democrats calling on Omar to apologize.

Mr McCarthy himself faced condemnation previous year for a now-deleted tweet that suggested billionaire Jewish donors were attempting to "buy" the mid-term elections.

Aipac's website says it offers a congressional club membership that requires "political contributions in a clearly pro-Israel context to candidates".

"Please learn how to talk about Jews in a non-anti-Semitic way".

MI congresswoman Tlaib said on Saturday that she wanted to highlight "issues such as racism and Israel's violations of the Palestinians' human rights". Congresswoman Omar's statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.

Democratic Congressmember Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is facing criticism today after commenting on a tweet by Glenn Greenwald.

"So sick & twisted", wrote Rep. "Is she also Islamophobic for attacking Saudi's influence on American politics in the exactly the same way?"

Kildee was asked to explain Omar's suggestion that Republicans who criticize her rhetoric have been bought by "Jewish money".

"We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests".

However, as many noted on Twitter, AIPAC does not directly contribute to political campaigns. Such legislation includes financial support for Israel and measures that would ban boycotts of Israel, including the BDS movement that Omar and Tlaib support.

"OF COURSE it's possible to critique AIPAC et al in a non-anti-Semitic way", Ungar-Sargon wrote.

Last month, Ms Omar apologised for saying Israel had "hypnotised" the world - a term once used by Nazis. "What she's insinuating or implying directly is that Jewish money is somehow controlling certain Democrats and people's positions toward Israel, '" Berman said.

"There are people that look at that saying 'that's the problem".

"We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", Clinton tweeted. "And I believe we can do that without criticizing people for their faith". She can advocate any policy she wants. "The Congresswoman's statements do not live up to that do not live up to that cherished ideal", Rose said.
