Omar will be speaking alongside a well-known Islamic Relief USA official, Yousef Abdallah, who has openly advocated for violence against Jews and has shared antisemitic sentiments on social media.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar will be a keynote speaker at an Islamic Relief USA emergency fundraising dinner for Yemen in Tampa, Florida, on February 23.
Omar will be speaking alongside a well-known Islamic Relief USA official, Yousef Abdallah, who has advocated for violence against Jews and has shared antisemitic sentiments on his social media pages.
The Middle East Forums Islamist Watch blog highlighted this address, and reported several instances in which Abdallah posted or shared stories of incitement. This includes his captioning and sharing a very beautiful [folk] story about martyrs who provide guns to kill more than 20 Jews and fire rockets at Tel Aviv.
In addition, the forum also found that he had referred to Jews as stinking, and had claimed that the Jews set the outside wall of al-Aqsa [mosque in Jerusalem] on fire.
Abdallah also liked a comment on one of his Facebook posts that called on God to wreak revenge on the damned rapists Zionists... Shake the Earth beneath their feet and destroy them as you destroyed the peoples of Ad, Thamud and Lot.
Islamic Relief has been found to have connections to funding terrorism and Islamic extremism. A Swedish government report named it as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood; the Tunisian government is reported to have investigated allegations that Islamic Relief was funding jihadists on the Libyan border; and members of the US Congress have launched an inquiry into a reported FBI and IRS investigation of Islamic Reliefs activities.
The announcement of Omars speaking engagement comes just days after the congresswoman, a famed Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) supporter, pointed an accusatory finger at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), saying the organization is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel.
Omars commented erupted a Twitter hurricane with leaders on the Right and Left condemning her remarks. Even her own Democratic Party issued a statement in which it called Omars statements deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reported on Twitter that she and Omar had spoke and agreed that we must use this moment to move forward as we reject antisemitism in all forms.
On Monday, the Union for Reform Judaisms President Rabbi Rick Jacobs condemned the tweet, saying that in the strongest terms Rep. @IlhanMNs tweets trafficking in stereotypes about Jews, money, and political power.
These tropes have for generations been at the core of acts of hate directed at the Jewish community, he continued. To see such sentiments expressed by a member of Congress is shameful, and they cannot be allowed to go unanswered. I welcome the statements from congressional leaders and others who have condemned her tweets.
He added that moving forward, I urge Rep. @IlhanMN to engage with members of the Minnesota Jewish community, as well as with national Jewish leaders, to explore the pain her words have caused and the impact of perpetuating anti-Semitic themes.
Also commenting on the matter, left-wing Jewish organization JStreet said in a statement that elected officials should be particularly sensitive and careful on the question of the role played by campaign contributions in influencing US policies toward Israel and the Middle East.
There is no doubt that money often plays a major role in our political system, the organization said. At the same time, elected officials must be extremely aware that tropes about Jewish money and political influence have been used for centuries to target and stigmatize our community.
The Jerusalem-based media watchdog, HonestReporting, invited Omar to join a mission to see the real Israel.
In an open Twitter letter, HonestReporting asked Omar to visit our country for yourself.
Its unfortunately no surprise to see young people, elected representatives included, make false allegations and misleadingly depict Israel and its connections to American and world Jewry, when they themselves have been exposed to biased narratives in the media, said HonestReportings executive director Daniel Pomerantz. The best way to counteract this is by inviting people to visit the country and see it for themselves.
The HonestReporting mission will run May 27 through June 3. Participants will tour Israel and meet with Jewish and Arab leaders. Even US President Donald Trump got into the discussion. En route to El Paso for his Make America Great Again rally on Monday, the president slammed Omar. She should be ashamed of herself, Trump said, in a statement published by USA Today. I think it was a terrible statement. Omar apologized for her tweet soon after posting it.
Antisemitism is real, and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of antisemitic tropes, Omar posted on the social media site. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.
She then said she stood behind her comment regarding the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, NRA or the fossil fuel industry. Trump called Omars apology inadequate.
On Tuesday, the US president called on Omar to resign, saying she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
This evil islamic POS needs to be removed from our government. Surely, there is enough dirt on this skank to get her removed.
Probably the first time Islamic Relief USA has hosted a member of the House Foreign Relations Committee. Nancy's girls are moving up in the world.
It would be simply putting lipstick on a pig, this muzzie animal visiting Israel. We all know her true feelings on the matter.
I honestly believe that a large number of Dems don’t realize how quickly their party is changing, and not for the better.
Some don’t care, but I suspect the majority haven’t allowed themselves to sit and think about it objectively.
Most the people I know are Democrats. I just don’t talk politics with most of them. Some can discuss differences without losing their composure. Some cannot.
They are too locked into the ‘Us against the Deplorables!”
mindset. This change is far bigger than party talking point.
This will be a fundamental change, most likely a permanent one. The face of the Democratic Party will be wearing a Jihab. They need to think about what that symbolizes.
How close they are to supporting Sharia. That is what all of this is leading up to. Make no mistake!

Ilhan Omar is not an isolated case for the RATS. The CBC contains a good many anti-American Jew haters, and there are plenty more among their voting blocs! All the racism and bigotry the left keeps whining about is coming from their ranks!
This is the event I was referencing/trying to recall, in my post to you, on the other thread.
Let her keep showing herself. It only alienates more and more people from the Dem Party.
At bottom, all this Jew hatred from these barbarians is nothing more than envy.
This disgusting hater needs constant monitoring.......
Muzzies are plotting to harm Jews.....no question.
I would love to know what this dirt bag was doing on 9/11..was she passing out candy, dancing in the streets
Thanks to people like Ilhan Omar, the term “U.S. Congressman” is becoming a shameful term.
Trump needs to give Pelosi what for.
She put this woman Muzzie hater on our Foreign Affairs Committee-——
And if that wasnt bad enough———she put a Muzzie in charge of Americans’ safety and security.
Meet the Muslim Democrat Congressman with a stranglehold on your safety and security.
Here's the shocking list of Congressional committees under the control of Indiana Democrat Andre Carson.
NOTE--The DNC places a price on these committees---Congressman wishing to be placed on the committee pay up front. Where did Muslim Carson get the money to get on these highly sensitive committees?
Is Carson funneling Islamic cash into the DNC? Do his Indiana constituents know Carson bought these seats?

REFERENCE----Pelosi to name first Muslim lawmaker to House intelligence committee
By LAUREN FRENCH 01/13/2015 01/13/2015
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday she would name the first Muslim lawmaker to the Houses Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. A senior Democratic aide said Rep. André Carson of Indiana would be named in the coming days to the key national security-focused panel. Pelosi (D-Calif.) told lawmakers of the appointment during the members weekly caucus meeting.
Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Securitys Fusion Center the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.
The intelligence committee will most likely tackle a series of high-profile international crises during the 114th Congress, including the threat of Islamic militants and Ukraine.
Carsons office didnt immediately return a request for comment. The announcement comes in the wake of last weeks terrorist attack by Islamic extremists and subsequent shootouts with police that left 17 people dead. World leaders gathered on Sunday for a 1 million person solidarity protest against the violence that targeted French Jews and journalists.
Are the idiots that voted for her feels like suckers yet
EVERY muslim is anti-Jew, anti-Christian, anti-Hindu, anti-anything non-muslim.
They must make war on and subjugate, convert or kill everyone else on earth.
That’s their religion.
It’s in their book.
Mad Mo made it so.
POTUS has at least called for her resignation....
Trump Calls For Ilhan Omar To Resign As Conservatives Fume Over Democrat Double-Standards
President Trump on Tuesday said to White House reporters of Omar: I think she should either resign from congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Maybe going to PeLOUSY, directly calling for this hater to be stripped of committee assignments, will be next.
The people who voted for her are muslims who wanted one of their own to represent them.
We are the idiots for letting so many in.
This is the one that married her brother to further an immigration scam.
She should be stripped of her citizenship and deported.
