Fox News contributor and Harvard law professor emeritus, Alan Dershowitz, completely shredded Rep. Ilhan Omar to pieces over comments she’s made about Israel, and to be perfectly honest, there’s no one as deserving of this paddling than she is.
Omar stands accused of making continual anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks, and has insisted that Jewish people have an undesirable amount of sway over Congress. She also said that Jewish legislators have a misplaced allegiance to Israel, and not to the United States.
During a Monday appearance on Fox News, Dershowitz called for voters to ensure Omar’s failure in the next election.
“The Democrats must marginalize her and distance her from the center of the party,” Dershowitz said on Fox. “I hope she’ll be primaried, and she should be beaten in a primary by people who support the United States, and people who support American allies, rather than people who support American enemies.”take our poll - story continues below
The famed professor also added that Omar is simply anti-American.
“She is very anti-American,” he said. “Put aside the anti-Israel. She is also anti-American. She accuses American members of Congress, men and women, Jewish, Christian, she accuses them of doing it for the money.”
Omar issued an apology over the controversial remarks, which both parties condemned, but she continued her attacks over the weekend.
“For her to accuse Jewish members of Congress and non-Jewish members of Congress of dual loyalty because they support America’s allies … would you accuse somebody of dual loyalty if they supported England, if they supported France and other American allies?” Dershowitz asked.
Dershowitz also noted that he believes Omar is a hypocrite.
“This is a bait and switch,” the professor insisted. “She has gotten in Congress now and she has taken it on herself to present the strongest anti-Israel case in modern history that any member of Congress has ever tried to present. And she is being rebuffed, except by the radicals in the Democratic Party who are jumping to her support.”
He added, “She told her constituents when she ran that she would support America, and she is not. She is supporting America’s enemies and undercutting American values.”
The epic tongue lashing did not end there. Dershowitz went on to add that she — Omar — needs to say to herself, “My god, I’m accusing people of dual loyalties. Where are my loyalties? Are my loyalties to America, or are my loyalties to the Palestinian Authority, to Hamas, to Hezbollah?”
Omar has proven that she is unworthy of her current seat in Congress, with many folks on both sides of the aisle demanding she resign from her post. No amount of apologizing will likely stem the tide against her, so why not take the plunge and bow out of this whole thing gracefully?
Could it be she’s actually deeply invested in her anti-Semitic agenda? You decide.
