Congratulations, Ilhan Omar!
The freshman Democrat congresswoman has just been awarded the title of 2019’s “Antisemite of the Year” by advocacy group Stop Antisemites.
The “award” was decided by a vote, and Omar won by a longshot!
Take a look:
Stop Antisemitism released this video "congratulating" Omar and explaining why earned the title of 2019's biggest Antisemite:
The Jerusalem Post has more to say:
The votes are in and the counting has been completed: US Rep. Ilhan Omar is 2019’s biggest antisemite, according to stopantisemitism.org.The NGO announced that Omar would be awarded the title of biggest antisemite of the year on Monday, including a video listing her achievements in the field of Jew-hatred, accompanied sarcastically by congratulatory music and confetti.
This list included:
1. Accusing American Jewry of possessing dual loyalty.
2. Alleging that Jews buy their influence with money, infamously stating “It’s all about the Benjamins.”
3. Accusing Israel of having hypnotized the world.
4. Supporting the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
5. Submitting a resolution in the House of Representatives comparing boycotting Israel to boycotting the Nazis.
6. Having her antisemitic statements endorsed by infamous neo-Nazi David Duke.
After Omar was named "Antisemite of the Year,
Israel's UN ambassador called for action to be taken against her.
The Washington Examiner has more on this:
Danny Danon, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar after an advocacy group named her "Antisemite of the Year."
" @StopAntisemites just named Congresswoman Ilhan Omar it's 2019 Antisemite of the Year," Danon said Monday on Twitter. "Here is a clear opportunity to prove that all the talk about standing up to #antisemitism is not just an empty promise, but will be followed by action."

The advocacy group, stopantisemitism.org, selected the Minnesota Democrat as its "Antisemite of the Year" for comments accusing Jews of dual loyalty and influence-buying, as well as saying Israel is "hypnotizing the world." Omar has apologized for some of the comments, but she refused to apologize for her accusation that some U.S. politicians have dual loyalty to Israel.
