According to a recent poll conducted by StopAntisemitism.org, far-left Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar has been crowned 2019’s “Antisemite of the Year.”
As reported by CBN, “On Nov. 21 voters narrowed down the finalists to notorious anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, and Congresswoman Omar.”
The Washington Free Beacon joined in by quoting StopAntisemitism.org saying:
Among Rep. Ilhan Omar’s transgressions, she perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter to nearly two million followers and introduced an anti-Semitic resolution in Congress that promoted boycotts of the State of Israel and likened them to boycotts of Nazi Germany. The public’s vote highlights the growing concern among Americans about the Congresswomen’s ability to use and abuse her position of power to propagate hatred in the U.S.
Spokesperson for StopAnti-Semitism.org, Liora Rez also said, “Anti-Semitism is plaguing our nation and it’s about time we create real consequences for those spreading it. By exposing bigots like Rep. Ilhan Omar, we are ensuring that the public is alert and able to take action.”
Omar has proven to be one of the biggest anti-Semites in America considering she constantly promotes anti-Israel and anti-Semitic movements.
In 2012 she tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Omar received fierce backlash from these comments. New York Times columnist Bari Weiss even joined in, writing:
The conspiracy theory of the Jew as the hypnotic conspirator, the duplicitous manipulator, the sinister puppeteer is one with ancient roots and a bloody history. In the New Testament, it is a small band of Jews who get Rome — then the greatest power in the world — to do their bidding by killing Christ. Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, speaks to the Jews about Jesus in the book of John: “Take him yourselves and judge him according to your own law.” But the Jews punt the decision back to Pilate: “We are not permitted to put anyone to death.” And so Pilate does the deed on their behalf. In the book of Matthew, the implications of this manipulation are spelled out: “His blood is on us and our children,” the Jews say — a line that has been so historically destructive that even Mel Gibson cut it from his “Passion of the Christ.”
In the two millenniums that followed, even after 1965, when the Catholic Church formally disavowed the belief that the Jews killed Jesus, this was the template for the anti-Semitic conspiracy: the ability of this tiny minority to use its wiles and its proximity to power to con others into accomplishing their evil ends. It has led to countless expulsions, murders, massacres and pogroms throughout Europe and elsewhere.
The Jewish power to hypnotize the world, as Ms. Omar put it, is the plot of Jud Süss — the most successful Nazi film ever made. In the film, produced by Joseph Goebbels himself, Josef Süss Oppenheimer, an 18th-century religious Jew, emerges from the ghetto, makes himself over as an assimilated man, and rises to become the treasurer to the Duke of Württemberg. Silly duke: Allowing a single Jew into his city leads to death and destruction.
