      n response to the attack from her fellow House Democrats, Omar said Wednesday that “citing an open case against Israel, the U.S., Hamas, and the Taliban in the ICC isn’t comparison or from ‘deeply seated prejudice.'”

      “You might try to undermine these investigations or deny justice to their victims,” Omar added, “but history has taught us that the truth can’t be hidden or silenced forever.”

      IfNotNow, a progressive Jewish advocacy organization, said Thursday that the House Democrats “using Islamophobic tropes to smear Ilhan Omar do not represent the American Jewish community.”

      “They are more interested in protecting Israeli occupation and apartheid than working towards Jewish safety and equal rights for Palestinians and Israelis,” the group added.

      In the end, it won’t matter. The United States will eventually stop supporting the apartheid government–I’m not about to make a prediction of when that will be, but it will happen–and the Israelis will have to cut a deal with their Palestinian neighbors or be driven into the sea, just like the South African whites did with their Black neighbors.

      She better be careful, since Mama Bear Pelosi is already on the record saying that even if the world were coming to an end, Israel is her top priority!

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
