NGO Names Rep. Ilhan Omar Antisemite of the Year 2019


The StopAntisemitism.org NGO has named US Representative Ilhan Omar its 2019 Antisemite of the Year.

The announcement was made on Twitter on Monday, with the group sarcastically congratulating Omar on claiming the title of ‘our most vile Jew hater.’


The tweet is accompanied with a video, complete with some celebratory confetti, laying out what brought the Minnesota Representative this questionable honor.

These include, among other things, suggesting that American Jews have a dual loyalty, supporting the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement and getting an endorsement from David Duke, former KKK Grand Wizard. 

“By defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” Duke announced in March 2019.

In summer 2019, Ilhan Omar, along with a fellow freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib, was banned from entering Israel with other US Representatives.

A long-time critic of Israel, she also slammed the change in US policy on Israeli settlements announced by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
