Congressman Lee Zeldin Addresses Feud With Omar Over Her Support For BDS Movement

DC: Congressman Lee Zeldin in a Sunday interview addressed his recent spat with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar over her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement and comments she made about Israel.

Zeldin and Omar have been feuding recently with Zeldin calling out her politics and her new role on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. She responded by accusing him of being a bully. The New York congressman then shared an anti-Semitic voicemail his office received on Twitter Thursday evening. Omar reacted to the message by saying she receives similar messages and suggested they meet up to “share notes on how to fight religious discrimination.”

“We have a committee that is responsible for overseeing American foreign policy, and it’s concerning that someone who would be undercutting so much of what’s best for U.S. foreign policy would be overseeing it. So that’s concerning,” Zeldin said during his appearance on “Fox & Friends” Sunday. “We need to combat anti-Semitism, but the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement isn’t just criticism of the Israeli government for policies, it has evolved into blatant anti-Semitism and that goes all the way back to the founder of it who was clearly anti-Semitic.”

Fox News’ Ed Henry then asked the congressman if he would be willing to “bridge the divide” with Omar.  more here

  1. Why bother? You cannot communicate with these inbred Muslims. Wearing a scarf that probably covers up some deformity. Maybe this is a result of genital mutilation. She should be packed up and sent to a country more worthy of her display. And take her man looking friend with her, they are filled with hatred for America and have no place here.

  2. For a Muslim, Islam trumps all other concerns.

    And hatred of Jews is fundamental to Islam, it’s in the Koran.

  3. Their stance on infanticide is that it is GREAT for all the infidel babies, but verboten for those of the Muslim clan.

  4. Like islam itself, Ilhan Omar’s only common ground for every Jew and Christian is six feet under. The media continues to provide a forum for the evil she represents and espouses.

    To have this vile, anti-American, islamic protagonist on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations is indicative of Pelosi’s disdain for the Security of our Nation.

  5. BDS movements, I’ve taken a few of those myself. Shame she and the trash that “elected” her don’t have any interest in stopping FGM (Female genital mutilation).

  6. We had a radical muslim as a president, but that was secret. Soon, a sicko like obama and this bigot will be on fhe supreme court.
