With a rare joint statement, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her entire leadership team on Thursday sought to quell a growing controversy over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) remarks equating war crimes committed by the U.S. and Israel to those by the Taliban and Hamas terrorist groups.

The joint statement by Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and Vice Caucus Chairman Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) came after Omar responded to a request from a dozen Jewish House Democrats to “clarify” what she meant in her original remarks.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Legitimate criticism of the policies of both the United States and Israel is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate. And indeed, such criticism is essential to the strength and health of our democracies,” the Democratic leadership team said in its statement.

However, the statement adds, “But drawing false equivalencies between democracies like the U.S. and Israel and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all.”

“We welcome the clarification by Congresswoman Omar that there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” the statement concludes.

Omar released the following “clarification” on Thursday:

“Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MMinnows  released the following clarification on her questions during the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week.

“On Monday, I asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken about an ongoing International Criminal Court investigations.

“To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel.

“I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

Omar then fueled the flames on Thursday by dragging up an old tweet from 2019, when Republican Rep. Mo Brooks had stated in a CNN interview, “Muslims more so than most people have great animosity towards Israel and the Jewish faith. As you have more and more Muslims in the US, as they gain greater and greater influence in elections…you’re going to see more people like @IlhanMN@RashidaTlaib.”

Slamming Brooks over his comments from nearly two years ago, Omar declared, “We serve in Congress with Islamophobes like @RepMoBrooks and Democratic colleagues wont condemn him instead give legitimacy to this dangerous rhetoric. When will our caucus forcefully stand up against hate towards their Muslims colleagues and constituents?”

  1. How about they stand up against people like you who continue to degrade Israel and the Jews while praising Hamas

  2. Democrats!! Always trying to get ahead of the story. We know how they really feel about Americans and the Jewish community.

  3. What else do you expect from the communist Democrat Speaker? Omar and the Democrats can say anything nasty she/they wants about America/Americans, yet the Dems will punish any Republican who defends our country, our citizens. Our laws, our constitution. No equality at all!

  4. Demoncrap are in league with all the evilness going on in our country and the world. Their Rhetoric is just a ploy to continue the killing of America. They must all be eliminated from any power.

  5. Quick to whip up that carefully fabricated word Islamaphobia- it has one purpose only. To try and shame people for observations and scrutiny that ANY OTHER FAITH has endured through the centuries . Muslims of Omar’s mentality believe they are exempt from criticism but are quick to malign and dish out hatred for others.
    One isn’t permitted a two way street against the assumed perfection.
    We cannot submit to their rules on this subject , even as they exact revenge through terrorist acts in response to criticism .

  6. Better to be islamophobic than to be anti semitic. Islam teaches Jihad, death to unbelievers who refuse to convert. How’s that for hate and bigotry?

  7. Ya whatever. We’ve seen this song and dance before with the leadership before. The hate filled rhetoric will stop for a while and start all over again.

  8. The fact is that Muslims hate Jews, Whether they live in the Middle East, or the US. Americans don’t hate Muslims as a group, only those individuals who try to hurt us and others.

  9. Tell that old drunk crow to lay off Greene. Where are the 2 face Republicans. Swalwell got away way with tapping a Chinese spy and Dianne Feinstein got away with having a spy in her employ. Republicans are plain azz stupid and in with the democrats. We need a party for conservatives.

  10. I’m old enough to remember when the Jewish-American community was an important constituent of the Democrats’ Rooseveltian Coalition. Today’s Democratic Party, though, has become the new political seat of anti-Semitism in America. How much longer before American Jews adjust to this harsh new reality and begin their exodus from the Democratic Party?
