Ilhan Omar condemns GOP congressman over his remarks about Palestine

October 31, 2023

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has long been a fierce critic of Israel and once compared it to the Taliban during an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper.

Yet this week Omar turned her sights on a Republican lawmaker over his remarks about the Gaza Strip. 

GOP congressman says Palestine will "probably get eviscerated"

According to Semafor, Omar recently lashed out at Ohio Rep. Max Miller following his appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle."

When asked about Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib's decision to hang a Palestinian flag outside of her office, Miller referenced Israel's response to a terror attack earlier this month in which 1,400 people were murdered.

"I don’t even want to call it the Palestinian flag because they’re not a state, they’re a territory, that’s about to probably get eviscerated and go away here shortly, as we’re going to turn that into a parking lot," he said.

Omar accuses Miller of engaging in "genocidal rhetoric"

That angry pushback from Omar, who reposted a clip of Miller speaking on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

"This is what is condoned by our colleagues in Congress, first it was Lindsey Graham and now Max Miller, yet you won’t hear a single condemnation. Not from Congress, media or any leader of consequence," Omar complained.

"For once, can people say they condemn calls to completely wipe out Palestinians? It shouldn’t be hard to condemn genocidal rhetoric," she insisted.

Omar sought mercy for a man caught trying to join ISIS

Omar has herself been regularly condemned for appearing indifferent to those who have been victimized by radical Islamist groups.

Minneapolis' Fox News 9 reported that in 2016 Omar sent a letter to the judge presiding over the trial of a man who was caught trying to join ISIS.

The Democrat asked that he be treated with "compassion" as "systematic alienation" and "perceived injustice" caused him to embrace ISIS's "radical approach to change-making."

This "radical approach" included throwing gays off buildings, drowning people in cages, and using children as sex slaves.
