WOW: Rep. Ilhan Omar Says That It’s Congress’s Job To Watch Over Palestinians

Anti-Israel member of Congress, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has made another absurd public statement.

Omar stated that the Israeli government stopped her from doing her job last week, when she was denied entry to the Jewish state.

Apparently, Omar thinks that her job is to represent the Palestinian people and not her district in Washington D.C

“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress,” Omar wrote in a tweet.

It appears Rep. Tlaib agrees with Rep. Omar when it comes to whom she actually represents in Congress:

“When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” she tweeted in explaining her decision not to travel to Israel. “I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my sity (grandmother) to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies.”

Rep. Tlaib added, “Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me.”

What do you think?
