Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has now announced that she does not in the least retreat her previous comments which compared both Israel and the US to violent Islamist terrorist groups like Hamas.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Omar appeared Tuesday on CNN and told host Jake Tapper that she doesn’t regret her June 7 comments, and asserted that her comments should be viewed in context of the “point” she was “trying to make.”

Tapper stated: “Ultimately, Democratic leaders said that equating the U.S. and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban ‘foments prejudice,’ and, as you know, a group of Jewish House Democrats wrote a letter to President [Joe] Biden saying that accusing Israel of acts of terror—as you and other members of the squad have done – is anti-semitic. Do you regret these comments?”

“I don’t,” Omar replied. She then cited cases sitting in front of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The ICC is investigating both the U.S. and Israel for allegedly committing war crimes in Afghanistan and the Gaza Strip, respectively.

“I think it’s really important to think back to the point that I was trying to make. Obviously, I was addressing Secretary of State [Antony] Blinken. The cases are put together in front of the ICC. The ICC has been investigating,” Omar said. “I know that, you know, some of my colleagues don’t lend legitimacy to the ICC but I tend to think that people around the world who have experienced injustice need to be able to have a place where they can go, and as a country that helped found the ICC and supported it, I think that it is really important for us to continue to find ways in which people can find justice around the world.”

In spite of Omar’s decision to double down on her unhinged and odious comments, she has yet to face any consequences from House Democrat leadership.

The U.S. should cut all ties to Israel and the rest of the Middle East. We’re constantly dealing with contentious issues arising from that region, solely because we’re ‘hooked’ on their resources. It’s not worth the costs of conflicts and the erosion of our national sovereignty to continue our dependence on foreign oil. The U.S. has sufficient known oil reserves to supply our domestic energy needs, and there are existing technologies capable of developing non-fossil fuel energy sources. Let this dimwit keep the Middle East stirred up with her tired harangue, and make our nation sovereign.

What world events? Let’s worry about our own ‘events’, like how our election was stolen, America’s exploding homeless population, our burgeoning crime rates and porous borders. The Middle East can take care of itself. We should no longer be involved with that region.

What’s “Stupid” is our dependence on foreign oil, in conjunction with our involvement (Nay, entanglement) with issues in that region. It’s time to forge U.S. Sovereignty, and quit acting like an Empire.

It’s not “Ignorant” to espouse our national sovereignty, and cease involving our nation in that region. Let’s worry about our own borders, homelessness, crime and drug addictions.

The only difference between Muslim and Catholic is the continent they destroy. Vote accordingly.
