I think she explains herself very well here.
A very impressive woman.
For a liar and anti-semite sure.
You're anti-semitic as well though are you not?
There is no Jewish State, although many in Israel think there should be. The declaration of independence states quite clearly what sort of state the founders of that 'holocaust generation' wanted, you should read it. 70 or more years of warfare have meant that those ideals have only partly been realized. Of course it takes two sides to make peace, The Palestinians only had one non negotiable position from 1948 until 1992 - A one state solution that could only come about through the destruction of Israel and the ethnic cleansing of 'The Zionists', quite a difference to Israel''s declaration of independence that forms the basis of Israel's constitutional law.
But why shouldn't Israel be a 'Jewish State'. The Palestinian constitution states quite clearly that the official religion of a future state of Palestine will be Islam and its legal code based on Shari'a. Any Jews or Christians living in a Palestinian state would have to live with that.
Careful, you are talking about a two-state solution. That is being anti-semitic nowadays.
I guess. If your standard for impressive" is low enough.
These women, particularly Ilhan Omar are historic figures. They are fearless and speak strength to power in a way few politicians do. It is refreshing to see.
Long may they keep doing what they are doing.
When do you think they're going to start speaking truth to power about stuff like this?
The Palestinian Authority just banned all LGBT activities in the West Bank
I guess with Trump around the bar has been set very low in terms of oratory, morality and intelligence in American politics.
First things first. They probably think preventing the murder of Palestinian children by Israeli forces is more important.
You know, that's almost the same phony deflection Omar gave yesterday.
Pretending that this act somehow balances or mitigates Israel violating the dignity & rights of Palestinians - or undermines case for defending Palestinian rights - is deplorable!
All she had to say was "I do not support the Palestinian Authority's mistreatment of LGBT people". But naaah...she can't bring herself to say that. Wonder why?
Oh, thank god someone finally managed to introduce Trump into the discussion. We don't hear enough about him on this site.
There is nothing phony about Netanyahu's oppression of the Palestinian people.
Speaking of Trump. This man hits the nail on the head. "Racists are going to racist".
Oooh hit a nerve with the Trump fanboy, shame that your ideology doesn't allow you to see both Trump and Omar as flawed characters. Maybe you should try the Breitbart comments section if valid opinions so easily trigger you.
Yeah artboy... go back where you belong... no wait argh... you're a snowflake... argh no wait... erm so easily triggered... omg I am list in my own web of "progressive" wibble!

Uh, that's pretty...incoherent. Maybe I'm just bored with people's non-stop ventilation of their TDS. That okay with you?
The Palestinians have their hands full being oppressed by their own "leadership".
Case in point. President Mahmoud Abbas. Elected in 2005. Now in Year 15 of his four year term of office. Net worth: £100 million.
At least they are not performing massacres on them. Unlike Netanyahu.
