    LOL

    Gotta find a way to demonize the Liberal Muslim, right?

    I hate the current American government and a lot of their actions and stances, just like you hated the last one. Does that mean we respectively hated Americans and don't give a crap about 9/11?

    It's almost like Rudolph Hoss, who ran Auschwitz, wasn't raised strictly Catholic

    These issues attend have complexity and nuance and it's best to not broad brush, unless you want to impune Christians and those with a Christian heritage as being the directors of most of the "final solution" (as well as the liberators)

    Yes that
    Was what I found and it does not say what the quote Shane found implies.

    Sure it can be spun that way particularly when merged in with other quotes. But that was clearly deliberately phased to make her look as bad as possible.

    I don't like a lot of things the Israeli government does or that some in the US feel more alliegence to a foreign government.

    Neither of those make me anti semetic, it's just like I came from the UK but I am an American now

    Since Bibi has been indicted for corruption, shouldn't aid to Israel be cut off? Shouldn't Israeli's be on the banned country list?

    I mean, to be consistent with Trump's stances on other countries.

    If you go back and look about she just tweeted, she is talking about Jewish people. What you are quoting is about Israel, which is a nation run by a government.

    People do not equal a government. I can't read her mind. But both statements can be her true thoughts and be noncontradrictory.

    Wasn’t it her words that got her in trouble in the first place?

    If so why can’t her words make amends?

    It’s not like her dog took a crap in your yard and she’s trying to say sorry instead of cleaning it up.

    Then: Omar’s words vs. Israel are disgusting and anti-Semitic. She needs to search her soul and change tone to respect to all Jewish people. SCREW HER!


    Now: Omar’s words in support and respect of Jewish people is not to be believed because she disparaged Israel in the past. SCREW HER!

    Why does "Israel" and the "Jewish People" mean the exact same thing to you?

    I can't think of any other people that cannot separated from a particular nation and the policies of it's government.

    It doesn’t mean the exact same thing to me. My comment is aimed at those who do...

    For me, I equate Omar’s views and behaviors to that of Trump. Just like we know Trump is a racist and an Islamaphobe, we know Omar is an anti-Semite. She’s proven that time and time again for many years. One tweet doesn’t excuse her past statements and frankly doesn’t make me think she’s being genuine.

    Buying that Omar has all of a sudden had an epiphany and changed her views on Israel and Jewish people based on one tweet would be like defending Trump when he says or does one thing that even remotely looks like he’s not a bigot. This is for what we admonish his supporters. “Black unemployment is at an all-time low.” “See?! He’s NOT racist. He loves black people more than Obama!”

    Here you go again with your extremes when it comes to defending against perceived Antisemitism. It's like Chaplin with Scientology.

    You were this extreme about it when this first surfaced, and you are being that right now, with this. The actual Jews themselves that have responded have been a LOT more moderate than you ever have been towards this subject. That is, unless TJ stands for "The Jew."

    Maybe Omar has met with some Jewish leaders and got her views clarified both ways?

    Besides your incredibly biased view, do you have anything else to shine a light on what's really in her heart?
