Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Tries To Explain Difference Between BDS And Sanctions On Iran

Jew and Israel hater Ilhan Omar is a big fan of the BDS movement, not so much with sanctions on the Islamist nation of Iran, which is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers over the past 15 years

Ilhan Omar lies about BDS to explain why she supports sanctions on Israel but not Iran

Rep. Ilhan Omar has resorted to lying in a desperate attempt to explain how she could support the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement against Israel while expressing deep opposition to sanctions on Iran.

As Kaylee McGhee detailed earlier, Omar lashed out at President Trump’s policy of applying “maximum pressure” on Iran through tightened sanctions. “Sanctions are economic warfare,” she fumed.

Yet the statement was particularly incredible coming from Omar, who has been one of the most prominent supporters of the BDS movement. She clearly has no problem sanctioning an American ally, yet she has major qualms about sanctioning the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Asked about the double standard by Townhall on Thursday, Omar said, “The BDS movement is a movement that is driven by the people. The sanctions on Iran are sanctions that are being placed to create maximum pressure by a government. That’s very different.”

While it’s true that the “B” aspect of the BDS movement involves private boycotts of Israel, the “S” refers to the ultimate goal of the movement: getting governments to slap sanctions on Israel.

You don’t have to take this from me. Just check out the website of the Palestinian BDS National Committee, which is the coalition of Palestinian organizations that leads BDS efforts.

BDS is all about sanctioning every part of Israel, and is, at it’s root, anti-Jew

It’s impossible to believe that Omar doesn’t understand that government-driven sanctions are the ultimate goal of the BDS movement. The only way the situations are “very different” is that Israel is a Jewish state and Iran has threatened to wipe the Jewish state off the map. And, for an anti-Semite like Omar, that’s the distinction that matters.

Israel is not without faults, but, it is the only democratic nation in the region. They are allies. Iran consistently holds rallies calling for death to the U.S. and death to Israel. Who, really, is surprised that Omar has taken this stance? Remember, she introduced a pro-BDS resolution in the House, which was like “boycotting Nazis”. The House then went on a few days later to pass a resolution against BDS, 398-17. Don’t forget, the cofounder of the BDS movement, who is barred from entry into the U.S., is a Jew hater, and that is really the point of the BDS movement.
