During a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Monday, Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar equated the United States and Israel with Islamic terrorist organizations Hamas and the Taliban.
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) June 7, 2021
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice. pic.twitter.com/tUtxW5cIow
The absurdity and lack of factual evidence in her statement isn't going unnoticed.
Comparing our troops to the Taliban is DISGUSTING! This is one of the MOST un-American things I have EVER read - and it’s coming from a member of Congress nonetheless. Ilhan Omar HATES America, and she’s actively sabotaging the nation that has given her EVERYTHING. https://t.co/jGoGdR6OjV— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) June 8, 2021
Frankly I’m surprised she even admitted that Hamas and Taliban are bad.— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) June 8, 2021
Baby steps, people, baby steps.
Maybe one day she’ll even believe America is good.
This is absolutely disgusting from a Member of Congress. I lost two legs and a finger defending the USA and fighting the radical Islamic terrorists that @Ilhan Omar is now defending. She is completely unfit to serve our country.https://t.co/ehGRPXClus— Rep. Brian Mast (@RepBrianMast) June 8, 2021
A sitting Congresswoman is lumping the United States and Israel into the same group as terrorist organizations.— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) June 8, 2021
Let me be clear: The Taliban and Hamas deliberately kill innocent civilians, the U.S. and Israel protect civilians. https://t.co/vHPkQwwtmQ
How embarrassing. https://t.co/3e3CF2UhJ9— Simone Ledeen (@SimoneLedeen) June 8, 2021
