[Ed. – Who better to have a voice in foreign affairs than a congresswoman who hates America’s lone democratic ally in the Middle East?]
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appointed anti-Israel radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday.
Omar confirmed the appointment on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
Omar supports the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, which has been called antisemitic because it singles out the Jewish state for isolation and ignores the Palestinian side.
(She pretended not to support BDS until after she had been elected to Congress.)
Omar has also referred to Israel as an “apartheid regime,”
In 2012, Omar posted a tweet — which remains live — claiming that Israel had “hypnotized” the world, and calling it “evil.”
Asked Wednesday evening by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour why she had tweeted that, Omar said “those unfortunate words were the only words I could think about expressing at that moment.”
Nevertheless, Omar won a coveted seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee — which, she said on Thursday, had been her first choice of committee assignment.
