Rep. Ilhan Omar Scolded After ‘Deeply Troubling’ Post On Holocaust Remembrance Day

Rep. Ilhan Omar has been scolded by the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) after her “deeply troubling” posts on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

ZOA President Morton Klein, said Omar’s tweets were “reprehensible,” hateful” and  “Antisemitic.”

Kein also has “deep concern” over a House Foreign Affiars tweet that neglected to “mention Jews and antisemitism,” and merely mentions the “six millions (unidentified) lives.”

The official HFA tweet reads:

On #YomHaShoah we commit ourselves to remembering the 6 million lives extinguished during the holocaust & millions more who survived its cruelty. To honor their memories, we must remain vigilant against the forces of prejudice & injustice or risk reliving the horrors of the past.

Klein, was born in a displaced persons camp in Germany and is a child of Holocaust survivors was furious over the House Committee omission.

“The Nazis and their collaborators murdered six million Jews,” he stressed, “including almost two million Jewish children.”

“Universalizing the Holocaust forgets its victims and ignores the uniquely hateful scourge of antisemitism, which is rearing its ugly head more and more today,” he added, before noting that several Congresspersons also “issued similar tweets, omitting all mention of Jews and antisemitism.”

On the same day, Rep. Omar – who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said the country of Israel is “shameful.”

In a full statement Klein set her straight:

In her Yom HaShoa Day tweet, antisemitic BDS-promoter Omar wrongly referred to the Jewish State as “wealthy,” condemned the military assistance that enables Israel to defend herself from Arab/Muslim terrorists, and even condemned Israel for expressing concern that the Biden administration is renewing sending hundreds of millions of dollars to UNRWA (whom Omar misleadingly referred to as “Palestinian refugees”). Israel-hater Omar ignored the fact that UNRWA, which will receive hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer funds, teaches Arab children to hate and commit violence against Jews and Israel, in their textbooks and schools. UNRWA also has operations with the murderous terrorist group Hamas.
