The Holocaust, a shameful blight in modern history was a genocide in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically slaughtered six million European Jews — two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe —between 1933 and 1945. Adolf Hitler’s aim was total annihilation, facilitated by concentration camps equipped with showers that spewed deadly gas, ovens for humans and mass graves. After the allies liberated the skeletal, but still living victims, the rallying cry became, “Never Again!”
Who would imagine that anti-Semitism would find a home in the U.S. Congress in 2019 — a mere eight decades later?
Repeated vicious comments — widely criticized as anti-Semitic — questioning the patriotism of Jewish Americans, saying they “pledge allegiance to a foreign country,” referring to Israel, have been made by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Somali immigrant and radical Islamic activist. Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour came to Omar’s defense. Sarsour has notoriously called for a “jihad” against President Trump and urged Muslims not to assimilate in America.
Sarsour, an associate of hate-monger Louis Farrakhan who called Jews “termites,” “Satanic” and worse, blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for pushing an anti-Semitism resolution, calling her a “typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men.” In the end, Democrat House leadership put forth a resolution that was gutted of its original intent. Pelosi’s resolution was first watered down to include the trendiest grievance groups of the moment.
In this video, Sarsour, surrounded by henchmen, refuses to answer whether Israel has a right to exist.
Radical Bronx Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the out-of-control new face of Socialism in the U.S. Congress supports Omar, who has called for a full-fledged boycott of Israel.
Omar made the controversial remarks while appearing alongside U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), another freshman congresswoman accused of making similar comments in recent weeks. She recently accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of bribing Republican lawmakers into supporting Israel in exchange for payoffs. The fact that AIPAC does not make financial contributions to political candidates or sitting lawmakers doesn’t faze Tlaib. In 2012, Omar tweeted that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and committed “evil doings,” yet she was still elected in 2016. Omar and Tlaib are the first Muslim women elected to congress. Talib is a strident voice calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
Despite the fact that President Trump has fulfilled the promise of moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a promise made and quickly forgotten by other presidents, a preponderance of Jewish voters remain irrationally bonded to the Democrat Party.
Barack Obama treated Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu with contempt, but still he carried 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. Exit polls reflect Hillary’s odd appeal. Donald Trump, the father of a Jewish convert daughter and grandfather of three Jewish grandchildren, mysteriously only convinced 24% of Jewish voters. More than 75 percent voted for Democrats in the 2018 midterms.
It’s worth remembering the shameful display at the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, when the delegates booed the inclusion of the word “God” in the language of their Party Platform and jeered the idea of moving the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.
Here’s the SRAZ memory jogger — complete with the following shocking video.
The House Resolution — read it HERE —- originally conceived to repudiate anti-Semitism, and specifically aimed at reprimanding Rep. Ilhan Omar, has been expanded to condemn Islamaphobia, white supremacy, anti-Catholicism, and racial profiling by law enforcement. Omar’s name is not mentioned. However, she did assist in writing what was supposed to be a rebuke of her overt bigotry.
Consider this capitulation the death knell for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rein.
