FRONT PAGE MAG Ilhan Omar’s Non-Apology for Her Anti-Semitism It isn’t hard to see how Ilhan Omar’s Congressional career will unfold: she will continue to repeat anti-Semitic tropes; she will blame jihad massacres on the US, Israel, and the victims; and she will continue to claim victim status when called out for her hatred. Omar is a far Leftist and a devout, Sharia-adherent Muslim; neither group is distinguished for mavericks or original thinkers.

Enough is enough! It’s time for Rep. Ilhan Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
