Speaker Pelosi Dismisses Omar Comment Comparing US to Terrorist Groups

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dismissed Minnesota Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar’s comment comparing America and Israel to terrorist groups on social media.

Omar generated controversy when she asked U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken to look into “atrocities” committed by terrorist organizations as well as the U.S.

A group of Jewish House Democrats were disturbed by Omar comparing the U.S. and Israel to terrorist groups and urged her to clarify her comments.

The joint statement said, “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided.”

In response, Omar issued a clarification denying she was not making “a moral comparison” and she added, “I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

Pelosi appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and when asked about Omar’s remark, she said, “She clarified, we thanked her, end of subject.”

The Speaker also called Omar a “valued member of our caucus.”

Critics commented on social media.

Omar also retweeted a video from an organization that was investigated by the FBI over its possible links to a terrorist group.

Fox News reports:

In 2010, ISM was deemed by the Anti-defamation League (ADL) as one of the top 10 anti-Israel organizations in the country. The FBI has also investigated ISM for possible links to terrorists, but FBI documents reported in 2020 by the Intercept did not detail any charges levied.

The Progressive Caucus defended Omar.

And Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) criticized Pelosi.

Omar harbors anti-American and anti-Israel feelings and it’s extremely disappointing Speaker Pelosi will not publicly reprimand her and remove her from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

It sure looks like Pelosi is afraid of Omar and the progressive Democrats in the House.
