Even though she's apologized for the impact of her statements on AIPAC lobbying, which some members of the U.S. Jewish community found offensive, Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to be attacked by a bad-faith smear campaign.
Anti-Semitism is a real problem with real harms, and it needs to be eradicated. That doesn’t mean staying silent about AIPAC’s negative impact on our politics. And it never means buckling to dishonest bigots with a history of supporting anti-Semitism, white nationalism, and Islamophobia—like Donald Trump and Rep. Kevin McCarthy.
We're calling on leadership in the House to not continue to cave to these bad-faith attacks, which are intended to diminish the power of a groundbreaking Black Muslim woman and silence voices critical of Israeli policies and the politicians who defend them.
