The Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV) is saddened by the comments recently made by Representative Ilhan Omar.  Her viciously anti-Israel statements amount to nothing less than anti-Semitism.

Further, JWV totally opposes having Rep. Omar on the House Foreign Relations Committee.  JWV demands she be immediately removed from such a vital committee.  Her disruptive statements are an acknowledgement of the fact that she lacks knowledge in the area of foreign affairs.

Representative Omar’s comments should be forcefully condemned by her colleagues in the Congress.  She should be given a committee assignment more in line with her expertise and talents.
