US Rep. Ilhan Omar Under Fire Once Again for Suggesting Jewish Students Support Genocide


US Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing renewed criticism for suggesting that Jewish students who support Israel in its war against Hamas are “pro-genocide.”

“I got 10-year-old and seven-year-old Jewish children,” Rep. Moskowitz (D-Fla.) said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday. “I don’t know if they’re pro-genocide or anti-genocide. I guess I’ll talk to them about that.”

Omar made the controversial comments during her fourth visit to Columbia University on Friday, where she was supporting her daughter Isra Hirsi, who had been arrested along with approximately 100 others during anti-Israel protests on campus. When speaking to a reporter at the rally, she stated, “We should not have to tolerate antisemitism or bigotry for all Jewish students, whether they are pro-genocide or anti-genocide.”

Moskowitz, along with Jewish Democratic Representatives Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), have been vocal critics of the antisemitic rallies that have taken over America’s leading universities these past few weeks. 

“I remember when Charlottesville happened, there was universal condemnation. And the people who tried to ignore that, explain it away, or say, ‘It’s not everybody’—we condemned those people,” Moskowitz said.

 But here, for some reason, when it’s ‘Jews, go back to Poland,’ ‘Bomb Tel Aviv,’ all of a sudden it’s peaceful.”
