Omar’s criticism can’t be confused with anti-semitism
During the Civil Rights Movement Jews and blacks were inseparable allies. Both groups wanted the same result — the elimination of legal support for racial and religious discrimination. With the approval of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, that objective was substantially achieved. However, because of the innate hostility to people of color in this country, African Americans had to continue their fight. It was natural for blacks to identify with Rep. Ilhan Omar in her conflict in the Congress over policies in Israel.
