ÿþdamit ihr asos hats in euren Weblight-Eckchen auch genug Ektschinns findet, fände es also sehr lieb von euch, wenn ihr jetzt brav damit rumspielt aber das nicht einfach so klaut (ggfls. ohne es zu merken) sondern dann lieber auf meine Seite rüberschnuppert, wo ihr euch ruhig was abschreiben oder meine Fotos kopieren könnt, sogar die Rap-Songs von mir und BenjiBenjay dürft ihr euch kopieren !
Democratic congressman Eliot Engel chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on which Omar sits, and from which President Trump recently said she should resign demanded that Omar retract her comments and apologize. Others followed suit. By Monday afternoon, it was announced that top House Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, would australian hat be putting forth a resolution on anti-Semitism on Wednesday in response to Omar's words.
It didn't mention Jews at all, but only political actors who "push for allegiance" to Israel. This is an entirely fair-minded description of, for instance, baby bobble hat attempts to curtail Americans' right to protest other nations with legislation that criminalizes participation in the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement. "Allegiance" is also a reasonable label for the unquestioning devotion to an American-Israeli alliance demanded across the spectrum of the political mainstream. Democratic congressman Juan Vargas admitted as much in a tweet condemning Omar on Monday, in which he wrote that "questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable."
But just what are those values and interests, baby boy hats and why are they inviolable? What has allowed for a political culture in which none but the mildest criticism of Israel or the most tepid expression of solidarity with Palestinians is permitted to enter the discourse? This is exactly what Omar wants Americans to finally confront, and it's exactly what Democratic leaders hope to obscure.
Omar's statement has nothing to do with the increasing threat to American Jews' safety, but other people's words do. The Tree of Life shooting occurred in the midst of public musings by Republican congressman Matt Gaetz and others that George Soros might have been funding the sensationally televised migrant caravan then making its way from Central America. Two hours before the attack, the shooter posted a message on the far-right social media hotbed baby boy sun hat Gab that HIAS, a Jewish organization that aids refugees, "likes to bring invaders in that kill our people."
It's about exactly what Omar was discussing when she spoke the sentence that's now being so senselessly scrutinized: confining the conversation about Israel and Palestine to the right-of-center mainstream and ensuring that Palestinian liberation is never allowed to be taken seriously. Unsubstantiated accusations of anti-Semitism are, as Omar herself observed, a favorite tool for accomplishing this task.It's a convenient way to shut down a black Muslim woman's advocacy for an oppressed people under the banner of a commitment to help the marginalized.
