Interviewer: Talk about Israel because it has been a point of contention. How can America work productively towards a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians in your opinion?
Ilhan Omar: By having an equal approach to dealing with both most of the things that I’ve always been aggravating to me is that we have had a policy that makes one superior to the other and we mask it with a conversation that’s about justice and 2 state solution when you have policies that clearly prioritize one over the other.
Interviewer: Such as?
Ilhan Omar: Just our relationship with the Israeli government and Israeli state and so when I see Israel Institute law that recognizes it as a Jewish state and does not recognize the other religions that are that are living in it and we still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East I almost chuckle because I know that if you know we see that in any other society we would criticize it we would call it out we do that to Iran we do that to any other place that sort of upholds it’s religion and I see that now happening with Saudi Arabia and so I am aggravated
Jermaine: what do you think about this?
Barry: Well Omar has said some really really crazy stuff that goes back to the Middle Ages in terms of its basis in antisemitism now keep in mind this isn’t just some random nutty person broadcasting from a college dorm room or her parent’s basement she’s a US congresswoman with incredible cloud incredible power and the ability to reach out around the world.
This woman literally says that Israel has hypnotize the world and she praise to Allah To free the world from the spell of Israel, now she’s never retracted that tweet she’s never retracted the statement, she says that by attacking the government of Israel she really likes Jewish people but not the government of Israel now, when you’re invoking your religion to save your religion from someone else’s religion that’s pretty inflammatory. The quote that you were trying to run there is a video clip that’s gotten very famous in the last few days where Omar is talking about other crimes of Israel so to speak and she just can’t stop herself I don’t know what to say other than her antisemitism is obvious.
She’s talked about dual loyalties of Congress people she’s talked about how Israel must be stopped this specific clip is about the nation state law in Israel which ironically simply says it’s a Jewish state which it is it was declared the Jewish state by the countries of the world in the UN declaration in 1948 and there’s 1 country Jermaine, one country and I hope your viewers write it down in magic marker on the refrigerator where you can be a follower of any religion without ending up in prison or being put to death. You can be gay you can be straight whatever and you don’t get put to death, if you’re a Christian in certain countries that’s illegal, if you’re a homosexual you get put to death if you’re the wrong color from the wrong country you get deported or beaten or in the case of many popular African Arab countries sold into slavery. Yes ladies and gentlemen and the followers of Jermaine’s show and conservative nation, slavery is alive and there are tens of thousands of African slaves being sold every month in the marketplace in Muslim countries why because it’s legal under Islam you don’t believe me get yourself a Koran and look it up.
So, this is the lifestyle that Ilhan Omar your congresswoman is promoting and same things like Israel is a racist apartheid state nothing is more absurd than that it is the only country with freedom of religion and freedom of sexuality in the entire part of the globe and if you don’t believe me go there the biggest gay parade in that side of the world is in Tel Aviv every year and there are huge Christian churches and catholic churches and Muslim mosques they have the worldwide head of Baha’i faith is in Haifa and I’ve seen it and it’s gorgeous and the reasons it’s there is they were being slaughtered in Iran and they escaped and they move their worldwide headquarters and believe me they are not Jews they are Baha’i it’s a different religion altogether it is a beautiful religion but it’s not Jewish and it’s not Christian and it’s not Muslim.
