Minnesota Ilhan Omar doesn’t know why Jews find her anti-Semitic comments offensive

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said on Thursday that she did not understand why Jewish Americans would find her anti-Semitic comments to be offensive.

She defended her anti-Semitic views while appearing on CNN’s “Newsroom” with Poppy Harlow, where she referred to Israel’s government as a “regime.”

“I wonder what your message is this morning … to Jewish Americans who find that deeply offensive?” Harlow asked.

“Oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that,” Omar responded. “Um, I, I, don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish Americans.”

Example of her statements on Israel:

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel

Omar and fellow Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were photographed embracing ‘anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour’ after they were sworn in.”
