Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) faces increasing scrutiny today after taking aim at Israel in a private speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). 

CAIR, a controversial political action committee, has ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. 

During her speech, Omar also described the 9/11 terror attacks as "some people did something."

Fox News reports:

The comments from the Minnesota freshman Democrat, still reeling from a number of anti-Semitic controversies, prompted Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw to slam Omar for her description of the terror attacks.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something,'” Crenshaw wrote in a tweet. “Unbelievable.”


Others have also jumped on to criticize Omar's language, urging Democrats to condemn her remarks about the largest terror attack on U.S. soil that left nearly 3,000 people dead.

Last week, Omar requested the Trump administration secure the release of Hoda Abdelmonem, a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood who is imprisoned in Egypt.
