Rep. Ilhan Omar said she was oblivious that tweets she sent last week about why she believes politicians support Israel could be seen as anti-Semitic.
“Absolutely not,” the Minnesota Democrat told the Star Tribune when asked if she realized the anti-Semitic connotation of linking Jewish influence to money. She learned, she said, when she “got some calls” from friends and allies.
The article goes on to state the following:
She suggested in a weekend tweet that lawmakers supported Israel only because of campaign contributions. “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” she wrote, including a music note emoji, an obvious reference to a 1997 Puff Daddy song of the same name. In another tweet, she said the American Israel Public Affairs Committee was paying American politicians to advocate for Israel.
