Yet again, Ilhan Omar not only is spouting and promoting anti-Semitism by defending Islamic terrorist groups, she is also planning to introduce a resolution in Congress that would support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement…at the same time the House is about to vote on an anti-BDS resolution.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says that the Palestinian movement against Israel is non-violent: “In the situation of Palestine, what we are doing right now is having hypocrisy in not celebrating non-violent movements there and condemning it.” pic.twitter.com/t2ypORMtXu

And then there’s this:
Al-Monitor Congressmuslim Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — is about to drop her own resolution that may not go over so well with Democratic leadership. Her resolution would defend the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor. The Minnesota Democrat noted she intends to introduce the bill early this week. At the same time, Democratic leadership plans to advance another nonbinding resolution condemning the BDS movement on Wednesday.
Omar and her Muslim colleague — Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — became the first and only lawmakers to support the BDS movement after winning their elections last year.
On Wednesday, Engel’s committee will vote on an anti-BDS resolution, introduced by Reps. Bradley Schneider, D-Ill., and Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y.
Additionally, last year the House Foreign Affairs panel unanimously passed the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, which would allow the Trump administration to implement anti-BDS regulations for businesses and their employees that could carry criminal penalties of up to 10 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
