Anti-Israel fanatic Ilhan Omar appointed by Pelosi to the House Foreign Affairs Committee

It appears that the leadership of the Democratic Party has gone completely anti-Israel and is warming up to Jew-hatred.  The appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee – and the welcome extended to her by the chairman, (former) Israel-supporter Rep. Eliot Engel – confirms that the Democrats' big tent now extends to those who believe that Jews in Israel wield magical power to "hypnotize" non-Jews into acquiescence to their "evil."

Omar was triumphant yesterday on her appointment to the plum committee:

Omar is on the record that Israel is evil and has "hypnotized" non-Jews:

Asked about this on CNN yesterday, she said two contradictory things:

"... those unfortunate words were the only words I could think about expressing at that moment."

And then:

"I don’t know how my comments would be offensive."

Eliot Engel, the New York congressman who until now has been an outspoken supporter of Israel, has folded like a cardboard suitcase:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is one of 25 newly-announced members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, its chairman Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) confirmed on Thursday, welcoming what he called a "dynamic and diverse group [that] will bring to the committee new ideas, lively debate, and a shared commitment to advancing America's interests and values around the world."

Eliot, formerly the committee's ranking member, has long been one of Israel's most ardent Democratic supporters in Congress and has sponsored numerous pieces of pro-Israel legislation, including measures opposing the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

This places American support for Israel at risk of being terminated the next time Democrats control the presidency and Congress.  And it mainstreams fanatical hatred of Israel and Jews in the Democratic Party.  Sorry, but calling "anti-Zionism" something different from Jew-hatred is absurd, when anti-Zionists criticize Israel for actions they accept when other nations do them.
