Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar made a comment claiming that the relationship between the US and one of it’s strongest allies, Israel, was simply ‘all about the Benjamins.’
The junior congresswoman has in the past already controversially stated that “Israel has hypnotized the world,” and this time round the criticism about her anti-Israel tweet not only came from Republicans.
Democrat Max Rose from Staten Island responded: “When someone uses hateful and offensive tropes against people of any faith, I will not be silent. Congresswoman Omar’s statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.”
Meanwhile the Republican Jewish Coalition urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take appropriate action, asking her to “comment on the outrageous anti-Semitism being spewed by one of your members?”
