Politics The Elected Terrorist Supporter Ilhan Omar ..

Really interesting how this will turn out.

Ilhan Omar endorsed by Pelosi, challenger supported by pro-Israel givers

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lent her considerable weight to the reelection bid of Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has faced allegations of invoking antisemitism.

Meanwhile, an opponent in the Democrat primary who has attracted the support of pro-Israel givers nationwide has outraised Omar by millions of dollars.

“Ilhan is a valued and important Member of our Caucus,” Pelosi said Tuesday in a statement. “In her first term, Ilhan has already established herself as a leader on a host of issues — from child nutrition to housing to U.S.-Africa relations.”

Pelosi was among Democrats in 2019 who joined in criticizing Omar for a number of statements about pro-Israel influence that were seen as antisemitic. Omar apologized for some but not all of the statements.

Antone Melton-Meaux, one of four challengers to Omar in the Aug. 11 primary, has fundraised nationally in part by rebuking Omar for her Israel policies. Omar is one of two Democrats in the House who back the boycott Israel movement.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Tuesday that Melton-Meaux had raised $3.2 million in the last quarter while Omar had brought in $472,000.
Nancy does not have a choice anymore anyway.

She endorsed the squad, she condoned their behavior. She can't disavow them, it's too late for that, but it would also sign the, early, end of her (Nancy's) Democratic Party as she knows it.

How depressing she got elected...I hate her with a passion that few people actually benefit from.

Not really surprised. Who is going to oppose her in Democratic party nowadays? That being said if DNC can look a few years into the future, I hope they find a way to keep her challenger, Melton-Meaux in the party fold.
“Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians,” Omar said."

Meanwhile in an alternate universe -

“American air strikes killing civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki is an act of terrorism. The Japanese deserve protection. Unlike America, Nuclear weapons programs, such as "The Manhattan Project", don’t exist to protect Japanese civilians,” Omar said."
