Ilhan Omar retweets, löscht Post und beschuldigt sie des Antisemitismus: Bericht
Washington, DC – Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, has allegedly retweeted and then deleted a Twitter post accusing her of anti-Semitism after being called by both sides of the aisle for calling the US “all about the Benjamins “Designated. “
The tweet, which she allegedly re-released, came from historian Joshua Zeitz. The tweet in question began as if it supported the earlier comments of the congressmen. He wrote that he is “one of the American Jews who resist the occupation, complain about Israel’s anti-democratic drift and do not consider the country particularly central to my Jewish identity.”
The tweet continues: “And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us a hooked nose. “
Mediaite grabbed the retweet, which was soon deleted. There was some speculation that Omar might have retweeted the critical tweet after reading the first few sentences.
, @IlhanMN , Suggesting that a Jewish organization is buying American politicians is both demonstrably false and stunningly anti-Semitic. American politicians are pro-Israel because Americans are ( https://t.co/QMr1oCcnHX ). Apologize. pic.twitter.com/VdJh0W8sx1

Wow. AIPAC is paying Members of Congress to support Israel, one of our strongest and longest standing allies.
This level of anti-Semitism is truly denounced. https://t.co/VSWixEi8ep
