The Middle East Women’s Coalition is DEMANDING That Ilhan Omar RESIGN
Wow. Omar must be enraged at this point that even women from the MEWC are calling for her resignation after her blatantly antisemitic remarks. Nancy Pelosi however has flip-flopped from wanting to punish Omar to giving her a second chance by saying she really didn’t mean it, as in it ‘wasn’t intentional’
Oh, but the MEWC is not letting Omar get away with this.
Breitbart reported that “the Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition is on Capitol Hill Wednesday to call for the resignation of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Omar has come under criticism for anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks prompting House Democrats to organize a formal condemnation of Antisemitism. The vote was expected to take place Wednesday but now appears to be delayed.”
According to a press release, speakers will include:
SPECIAL GUEST Martha Boneta, Policy Advisor and political commentator
Rabia Kazan, President of Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition

“We came to this country because of the freedoms and rights offered to all citizens regardless of gender under the U.S. Constitution,” states the press release. “We are proud to be American citizens. But we recognize that millions of women in the Middle East don’t enjoy these freedoms, and are forced to live under fanatical and repressive religious regimes, denied basic human rights, freedoms and dignity.”
Our mission is to give voice to these oppressed women and promote a greater awareness of their suffering. We will not rest until these women are granted full equal rights to those of Middle Eastern men, and treated with honor, respect and dignity.”
“A House vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, following recent comments by U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has been delayed, as Democrats scramble to rewrite the motion to include all forms of prejudice and progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez come to the defense of their embattled colleague.
The declaration – which doesn’t mention Omar by name – was initially set to be introduced Wednesday. It was to set out the history of anti-Semitism and other bigotry in America and provide examples of anti-Jewish tropes about divided loyalties.
It was also supposed to say the House “rejects anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.”
The resolution effort came after Omar – for at least the second time in recent months – ignited an uproar for echoing anti-Semitic tropes.
In February, she suggested on Twitter that supporters of Israel have been bought, and that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) contributes to pro-Israel politicians despite the fact that the group does not make campaign contributions. The congresswoman then accused American supporters of Israel of pushing people to have “allegiance to a foreign country.”
