Ilhan Omar Condemns Dan Crenshaw After He Quotes Her Exact Words

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is being rightly criticized for appearing to downgrade the September 11 terror attacks to "some people who did something" at a Council on American-Islamic Relations event last month.

Those "people," we know, were Al Qaeda terrorists, and the "something" was killing nearly 3,000 Americans. 

Yet, she is on defense and deflecting criticism toward those who she claims are unfairly attacking her with "dangerous incitement." 

"My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question," Omar wrote on Twitter. "We are ALL Americans!"

She included her fellow freshman lawmaker Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) on that list, yet all he did was quote her - word-for-word.

Let's not forget her anti-Israel sentiments. Omar supports the BDS movement, which promotes the boycott of Israeli goods and services in protest of Israel "occupying Palestinian land," according to its website. Omar's tweets, however, scream anti-Semitism more than anything.

"Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel," she tweeted in November 2012.

Omar's controversial sentiments were the source of an anti-hate resolution recently passed in Congress. However, Democrats expanded the measure to include other forms of hate after she complained about being singled out.
