Ilhan Omar Equates US and Israel with Hamas and Taliban. Here’s why she’s wrong.



My latest in PJ Media:

The fiercely patriotic and morally scrupulous Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Hypocrisy) showed yet again Monday that she is a master at appealing to the Democratic Party’s core constituency. She tweeted: “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice.” Yes, that’s right: she equated the United States and Israel, both of which go out of their way to avoid civilian casualties, with jihad terror groups that target civilians and use them as human shields. Where are people supposed to go for justice? Not to Ilhan Omar.

While it is entirely within the realm of possibility that the forces of the United States and Israel may at various times have committed “unthinkable atrocities,” there is one immediate difference between them and Hamas and the Taliban: in the U.S. and Israel, those who commit “unthinkable atrocities,” such as intentionally targeting civilians out of pure malice and hatred, with no conceivable military objective, are arrested and tried, and dishonorably discharged from the military if found guilty. Hamas and the Taliban, by contrast, celebrate people who target civilians among those who are considered the “enemy” as heroes. Go to Gaza, and you’ll find posters on walls celebrating jihad terrorists who murdered Israeli civilians, and streets and city squares named after the murderers.

One particularly infamous example of this came during a recent conversation between an IDF official and a Palestinian in Gaza. “Listen, we are going to bomb the building,” said the IDF official, intending to give the Palestinians time to evacuate. “You want to bomb?” the Palestinian answered derisively, “Bomb whatever you want.” The IDF official persisted: “No, brother, we need to do everything we can so you don’t die.”

Then the conversation turned chilling:

Palestinian: We want to die.
IDF: But you have a responsibility for children’s lives.
Palestinian: If the children need to die, then they’ll die.
IDF: God forbid! God forbid! What, do you want to die?
Palestinian: This is how we reveal your cruelty.

Ilhan Omar herself couldn’t have said it better. If children were killed in that IDF strike, there is no doubt whatsoever that Omar would have added their number to her tally of Israeli “crimes against humanity,” without any public notice of the Palestinian refusal to move the children to safety.

There is more. Read the rest here.
