Back in 2019, not long after her infamous “It’s all about the Benjamins baby” and AIPAC tweets, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar suggested Jewish Americans have dual loyalty.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country. I want to ask why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the NRA (National Rifle Association), of fossil fuel industries or Big Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobbying group that is influencing policies?”
Well believe it or not, the “Abumination” Ali Abunimah’s Electronic Intifada is complaining that she is being accused of the same thing!
Newsweek’s opinion editor Josh Hammer, whose bigoted history has been reported here, engaged in a new attack on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, essentially accusing her of dual loyalty.
"Act of terrorism."

Let’s be honest about this. Ilhan Omar – like her fellow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib – has not once decried Hamas’ firing of rockets at Israeli population centers. She is constantly repeating Hamas talking points, and even tweets articles on websites linked to Hamas.
Dual loyalty? I am not sure I would go that far. But it is highly problematic – heck, it is evil – to say the least.
