IfNotNow Endorses Ilhan Omar For Reelection

The anti-Israel group IfNotNow has endorsed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for re-election in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.

“BREAKING: IfNotNow Movement Rejects Racist Attacks, Becomes Latest Jewish Group to Endorse @IlhanMN for Re-election,” tweeted the group in a thread on Tuesday.

“As American Jews, we’re proud to support Representative @IlhanMNin her re-election campaign. In her first two years in Congress, despite unrelenting attacks, Ilhan has remained steadfast in advocating for progressive policies, and opposing Trump’s authoritarian agenda,” continued IfNotNow. “Over the last several months, @AIPAC and its allies, like @DemMaj4Israel, have raised millions for Ilhan’s opponent—a repeat of their strategy to defend Eliot Engel from Jamaal Bowman’s primary challenge. This strategy failed in New York and it will fail in Minneapolis.”

Omar will face four opponents in her district’s Aug. 11 Democratic primary. Her top opponent, Antone Melton-Meaux, outraised Omar between April and June with $3.3 million to Omar’s $470,000.

Omar has perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter and introduced a resolution in Congress that promotes boycotts of Israel, likening them to boycotts of Nazi Germany.

In February 2019, a month after being sworn in, Omar accused AIPAC of paying members of Congress to back Israel, saying it was “all about the Benjamins.”

The following month, she pointed fingers at her “Jewish colleagues” for attacking her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for labeling their criticisms as anti-Israel because of the Muslim faith of the two congresswomen, in addition to slamming her critics regarding “the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

This led to the passing of a House resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred that did not call out Omar by name.




  1. Don’t give more attention to IfNotNow or if you are going to report on what they are doing refer to them ostensibly Jewish rabidly anti-Semitic group.

    Personal story: I had the misfortune of seeing by an IfNotNow anti-Israel protest.

    They were singing a Posuk in the Torah about Korbonos that can’t possibly be misunderstood as having any connection whatsoever to their agenda so out of curiously I NICELY asked one of their members for an explanation. I held myself back from pointing out that their crowd opposes animal sacrifices and simply asked why they believe that Posuk supports their beliefs.

    They didn’t answer of course. Instead they reacted with the hostility I would have expected from a neo nazi group.

  2. When we left Mitzrayim unfortunately we were joined by a group we refer to as the Erev Rav.

    Throughout the ages these people caused us a lot of trouble. Their 21 St Century manifestations are J Street ,if not now and others of their ilk.

    What these people don’t realize is that anti semites will use them then will abuse and kill them with no qualms once their usefulness over.

    I would pity them if they didn’t do so much harm.

  3. To yaak:
    “Yahir Koach”; short & to the point! “Emes V’Yatsiv”. Just as the “Navi” conveyed, in the name of G-D!


  5. ifnotnow is an openly anti-semitic group j-street’s anti-semitism is not totally open (in fact they claim to be pro-israel which is an ovious lie)
