Newly Elected Ilhan Omar Now Says She Backs BDS After Calling It Counter Productive In Front Of Jewish Constituents

Minnesota’s newly elected congresswoman Ilhan Omar has voiced her support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement aimed at Israel despite calling it “counteractive” during her campaign.

During a candidates’ forum before the US midterm elections last week, Omar visited a synagogue in Minneapolis where she said the BDS movement “stops the dialogue” and is “counteractive” to solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a two-state solution.

A website called Muslim Girl has since questioned Omar’s statements on BDS during her campaign.

“Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized,” a representative from her campaign told Muslim Girl. “She does, however, have reservations on the effectiveness of the movement in accomplishing a lasting solution.”

  1. Typical democrat. Make nice to the dumb gullible yiddelach before an election then stab them in the back right after the elections. But that’s okay. The dumb stupid yiddelach will just keep voting her in until SHE decides to retire.

  2. Story and headline don’t really match. But then, they have different objectives. Story is what happened. Headline is what grabs your attention.

  3. They puke up the pablum of not being anti-Israel and not agreeing with the antisemitic BDS campaign until they’re in office. It must be quite a relief to remove their mask of Jew-tolerance once they’re elected.

    I am NOT saying ex-president Obama is an antisemite (I don’t think he is one, personally), but he paved the way and made it far more acceptable to be publicly unfriendly toward Israel. The increasing schism between the Democratic party and Israel *is* something I largely blame Obama for.

  4. Yidden! Keep voting DemocRAT and this is what you’ll get every time. The DemocRAT’s hate Yidden but love our money. They will smile at you for money but will stab you in the back once they’re in office. Don’t trust a thing a DemocRAT says.
