As we previously reported, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) caused an uproar when she claimed the U.S. and Israel committed atrocities and compared them to the terrorist organizations. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she declared.

We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
