Just days before Israelis vote for their next prime minister, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) urged the country to abandon its loyalty to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Amid Netanyahu’s pledge to annex a large region of the West Bank that has been under Israel’s control since 1967 if he wins reelection, Omar warned the Israeli head of state’s “existence” and “rhetoric” is antithetical to fostering the peace process in the region.
“I certainly hope that the people of Israel make a different decision and my hope is that they recognize that [Netanyahu’s] existence, his policies, his rhetoric really is contradictory to the peace that we are all hoping that region receives and receives soon,” she said.
When someone exists, they are alive. When someone doesn’t exist, they are dead.
Logically, when someone says a person shouldn’t exist, it means they don’t think the person should be alive.
Is Omar calling for the death of the Prime Minister of Israel?
The Israeli prime minister, standing before a map featuring Jordan Valley and north of the Dead Sea, announced on Wednesday evening that the swath of land between the two territories will be immediately annexed and constructed into a new settlement that would be reserved for Palestinians if he is victorious in his Tuesday night election bid.
“It doesn’t annex a single Palestinian but it does allow the Palestinians to leave freely east and west including to Jordan,” he noted. “No prime minister has ever brought such a map to voters.”
A United States boycott of Israel will pressure Netanyahu and the government of Israel into initiating a peace deal with Palestinians and facilitate peace in the West Bank, Omar argued.
“Just right now, if you look at the annexation that is taking place, for many of us in Congress, there has been long standing support for a two-state solution, and this annexation now is going to make sure that that peace process does not happen and we will not get to a two-state solution,” the freshman Democrat lawmaker said.
“I think what is really important is for people to understand is that you have to give people the opportunity to seek the kind of justice they want in a peaceful way and I think the opportunity to boycott, divest, sanction is the kind of pressure that leads to that peaceful process,” she continued.
Omar then doubled down on her attacks against the Israeli prime minister on Twitter.
“Netanyahu’s existence as the leader of Israel has diminished any hope for a two-state solution and we can’t be expected to be silent about that!” she warned.
In other words, Omar is saying that Netanyahu being alive is a threat to peace in the Mideast. Basically, it is not enough to defeat him in the polls. As long as he exists, he is a threat. Netanyahu’s mere existence will prevent peace in the Middle East, according to Omar.
Is it because Netanyahu is a Jew, or because he is the leader of Israel, the Jewish state? Or both?
Omar is undeniably a Jew hater. Her anti-Jewish beliefs are and always will be at the core of her political statements and philosophy.
The Minnesota Democrat refrained from anti-Semitic rhetoric when running for Congress in 2018, contending the BDS movement was “counteractive” to achieving a two-state solution.
However, the Muslim Somali-American has brazenly supported the BDS movement upon taking office, even sponsoring BDS legislation that has resulted in Israel barring her from entry into the country.
In August, Israel announced its decision to ban Omar and her Muslim Democrat colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI) moments after President Trump warned it would “show great weakness” for the government to permit them to visit. “They hate Israel [and] all Jewish people, [and] there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds.
Netanyahu subsequently issued a statement noting Israel passed legislation in 2017 that outlaws anyone who supports boycotting Israel from entry.
Omar’s 9 month tenure in Congress has been plagued with scandal.
A Federal Election Commission complaint filed in August by the conservative National Legal and Policy Center claims she used tens of thousands of campaign donations to fund expenses accumulated during her affair with Democrat political strategist Tim Mynett.
Omar reported the expenditure as “travel expenses.”
The 37-year-old mother of three is in legal jeopardy amid allegations that she committed immigration and tax fraud to conceal evidence of marrying her brother.
Public records show the far-left lawmaker divorced her alleged brother, Ahmed Elmi, in 2017 then legally married Hirsi in 2018.
