Freshmen Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been at the center of numerous controversies over the course of her first term on Capitol Hill, and criticisms of the Minnesota democrat have come from all corners of the globe.
Omar has been a vocal opponent of Israel, first and foremost, irking a great many American politicians who see the Middle Eastern country as one of our nation’s most valuable allies. The Congresswoman has been repeatedly accused of antisemitism on account of these beliefs, drawing condemnation from both sides of the aisle in the process.
Her ultra-liberal politics have also been fodder for conservatives in Congress, who view her role within the so-called “squad” as a congressional catapult for her progressive politics.
Now, however, a new criticism of Ilhan has arrived…all the way from Iraq.
“Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim — does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East,” Idan told “The Sara Carter Show.”
Omar was not impressed with Idan’s comments.
Those comments prompted Omar to stress that she wasn’t the beauty queen’s representative since she didn’t live in her congressional district.
“Hey, I might be wrong but I don’t think you are a #MN05 resident and like that makes be not your representative,” Omar tweeted alongside a shrug emoji.
It looks as though Idan has gotten the last word, however.
Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?
I said as a MUSLIM! I dont stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country. @SaraCarterDC https://t.co/H4OYrdM9Y6 pic.twitter.com/7CuYDy44DF
