Bera must act on Omar
Maggie Abboud | June 10, 2021

Last night, House Democrats issued a statement calling on notorious anti-Semite Ilhan Omar to “clarify” her comments equating the United States and Israel with Hamas terrorists and the Taliban.

Unfortunately for Democrats, a weak statement calling for clarification isn’t the standard they set.

Ami Bera sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee and sent a letter to President Biden urging him “to take swift action to combat rising antisemitism.”

But Bera hasn’t said a word about Omar’s latest comments.

Why won’t Bera “take swift action to combat rising antisemitism” and demand Omar’s removal from this committee?

NRCC Comment: “If Ami Bera truly cared about Ilhan Omar’s anti-American and anti-Semitic rhetoric, he would immediately demand Omar’s removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee. Anything less proves Bera would rather play partisan politics than do what’s right.” –NRCC Spokeswoman Torunn Sinclair
