(Tea Party PAC) – Ilhan Omar has quickly distinguished herself as one of the most anti-Semitic members in Congress and she is not backing down from her position.
In a series of tweets Sunday and Monday, Omar, who has a record of radical statements, claimed that US foreign policy is bought by Jewish interest groups in the US.
This doesn’t pair well with previous positions she’s taken, like expressing support for Minnesota ISIS supporter in 2016, for whom she advocated a lighter sentence.
She also blamed the US for the al-Shabab attack in a Kenyan mall which killed nearly 70 people.
On Sunday, Omar responded to a Glen Greenwald tweet implying that US support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins.”
It's all about the Benjamins baby 🎶 https://t.co/KatcXJnZLV

She followed that up by re-tweeting a comment about the “hook-nosed Jew.”

That wasn’t all. On Monday night, Omar retweeted a post suggesting that a Jewish millionaire is responsible for the backlash she’s faced.
