Furious Throng Of Jews Took Over Times Square To Demand Ilhan Omar’s Removal From Congressional Committee Back In May, Remember This?
Remember when this happened back in May? Because it is especially important now, so read and watch: Protesters took to the streets of New York City’s Time Square, pushing for Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee following a series of anti-Semitic comments.
Via the Jerusalem Post:
Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal. She is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the US legislature.
Joe Diamond spoke to the Jerusalem Post prior to the protest saying, “In my lifetime, I cannot think of any other politician who presents a bigger threat to the alliance between the US and Israel and to America’s Jews. This woman is an ardent antisemite, and she doesn’t even try to hide it.”
Critics of Omar made plans to put up a billboard full of redacted quotes from the Democrat, along with shocking images from 9/11. The group, called “Ilan Must Go,” didn’t mind spending thousands on the billboard message. They had donations from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Zionist Organization of America, as well as others. They ended up using a truck to display the video when they were unsuccessful in getting the local authorities to provide them with a stationary billboard permit.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
A screen on the truck flickered with controversial statements Omar has made since being elected in 2018, including her much-publicized and allegedly antisemitic tweet “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.”
Diamond, who originally estimated that the event would bring in 10,000 protesters, said he was pleased with the turnout in the hundreds. Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.
“We have to utilize every mechanism of media to wake up Americans about the vile hatred of this woman. Christians should also be alarmed. Ilhan Omar is a huge threat to our national security,” Cardoza-Moore said. The activist told the Post that she expects to be called Islamophobic following her statements. “I’m just against terrorism,” she claimed.
