During a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Monday, Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar equated the United States and Israel with Islamic terrorist organizations Hamas and the Taliban.
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.

The absurdity and lack of factual evidence in her statement isn’t going unnoticed.
Comparing our troops to the Taliban is DISGUSTING! This is one of the MOST un-American things I have EVER read – and it’s coming from a member of Congress nonetheless. Ilhan Omar HATES America, and she’s actively sabotaging the nation that has given her EVERYTHING. https://t.co/jGoGdR6OjV

Frankly I’m surprised she even admitted that Hamas and Taliban are bad.
Baby steps, people, baby steps.
Maybe one day she’ll even believe America is good.

This is absolutely disgusting from a Member of Congress. I lost two legs and a finger defending the USA and fighting the radical Islamic terrorists that @Ilhan Omar is now defending. She is completely unfit to serve our country.https://t.co/ehGRPXClus

A sitting Congresswoman is lumping the United States and Israel into the same group as terrorist organizations.
Let me be clear: The Taliban and Hamas deliberately kill innocent civilians, the U.S. and Israel protect civilians. https://t.co/vHPkQwwtmQ
