OpEd: Dems shouldn’t support anti-Israel Rep. Ilhan Omar – She doesn’t speak for me and other American Muslims

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following opinion editorial written by Muslim journalist Qanta Ahmed and published by FOXNEWS.COM:

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has drawn sharp criticism recently for comments widely characterized as anti-Semitic – though she denies being an anti-Semite.

But try as she might to claim that her harsh condemnations of the Jewish state of Israel do not mean she is hostile to the Jewish people, her denials fall short. Her position makes as much sense as someone claiming to hate America but not Americans. The Jewish people are intertwined with the Jewish national homeland.

The article goes on to state the following:

It doesn’t help that rabid anti-Semite and Minister of the Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan has encouraged Omar to stand firm in her anti-Israel comments.

And please, don’t tell me – as some of Omar’s defenders do – that we cannot criticize Omar because to do so shows evidences Islamophobia – a supposed hatred of Muslims and Islam. Like Omar, I am a Muslim woman. I don’t hate my co-religionists. But I don’t feel that to be a good Muslim I have to hate Jews or Israel.

The falsehood of the besieged Muslim in America fits with the hunger for victimhood ideology.

Ahmed, a naturalized American citizen, said in her opinion editorial that “Omar is also proving to be an embarrassment for the Democratic Party, which counts on Jewish votes, Jewish financial support, Jewish campaign workers and Jewish volunteers to win elections.” She further writes:

Omar can’t deny that she is one of the harshest critics of the Jewish state in Congress. She is an enthusiastic backer of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, which seeks to cut off Israel from trade and other relations with the rest of the world. BDS amounts to economic warfare against Israel.
