According to far-left Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, the United States and Israel have committed “unspeakable atrocities,” seemingly like Hamas and the Taliban, which she grouped together with the two nations in a tweet. Both Islamist groups are classified by the U.S. State Department as terrorist organizations.

“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,” Omar said Monday with a video of her questioning Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday in front of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. “I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice.”

“We continue to believe that absent a [United Nations] Security Council referral or absent the request by the state itself, that that’s not appropriate. I continue to believe that whether it is the United States or Israel, both of us have the meetings,” Blinken said in response to Omar asking in what ways “domestic courts both can and will prosecute alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

The congresswoman called Israel an “apartheid state” during the significant conflict between Israel and Hamas, and accused Israel of “terrorism.” Hamas fired close to 4,000 rockets toward Israel last month, with hundreds falling in Gaza and killing civilians. Israel retaliated and destroyed tunnels, as well as took out terrorists, which led to a more than 80 percent decrease in rocket fire.

Omar’s reference to Afghanistan and the Taliban comes as the United States continues the process of withdrawing from the Middle East by Sept. 11. The military announced Tuesday that more than half of the withdrawal is completed.
