After criticizing the pro-Israel lobby in American politics, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) retweeted a post accusing her of antisemitism Sunday night.
Omar’s initial tweet, accusing U.S. politicians of being beholden to Israeli money, drew criticism for what many saw as anti-Semitism.
“I’m one of those American Jews who opposes the occupation, laments Israel’s anti-democratic drift, and doesn’t regard the country as especially central to my Jewish identity,” wrote Politico Magazine editor Joshua Zeitz in response. “And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us hook-nosed.”
Omar retweeted that criticism, before quickly removing it, but a screenshot of the shared post was caught by several Twitter users.
