Progressive Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has a problem with Jews, but on Holocaust Memorial Day, she appeared to be slightly concerned for the plight of the Jewish people.

It all began when Omar lumped the Taliban, Hamas, the United States…and Isreal into the same bucket of state-sponsored terrorists saying, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the US, Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”

She went further saying the four groups have committed crimes against humanity.

“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” she said.

On Friday, Omar took a moment to reflect on the Holocaust and the 6,000,000 Jews exterminated by the Nazi regime of World War II-era Germany under Adolf Hitler.

“Today, we remember the 6 million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust and redouble our efforts to stand up against antisemitism and all forms of religious discrimination,” She said.

Few people believed a word she said.

“You wouldn’t know antisemitism if it stared at you in the mirror. Which it does,” said Gary Weiss.

“Something we can agree on, too bad I know you don’t mean it,” said Wellington Perez.

Another constituent said she appreciated the sentiment, but didn’t feel it was sincere and worse, that Omar just doesn’t get it.

“I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you meant this sincerely. Thank you. But you are still not listening. We are not just a religion; we are a people with shared history, culture and identity. And for most of us, that identify is deeply connected to the land of Israel,” said Rhona Shwaid.

Sheraz Khan was more blunt and direct, replying, “Who are you fooling?”

Many others criticized Omar for injecting her own issues into her statement by adding the words “all forms of religious discrimination” at the end of the tweet, marginalizing the plight of the mid-twentieth-century Jews who faced persecution across Eastern Europe under the Nazi dictatorship.
