It has come to light that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D, MN), who introduced legislation that seeks to protect those who want to boycott, divest and sanction (BDS) Israel, uses an Israeli company to power her own website.
Reddit user ‘EthanB111’, noticed that the site ‘IlhanOmar.com’ is powered by WIX, a company that allows its customers to easily build websites using simple drag and drop tools. WIX does not hide the fact that they are based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Omar has said in the past that “boycotts have been effectively used” in the United States and around the world. She also caused a controversy when she compared boycotting Israel to the boycott of Nazi Germany. And as we all know, comparing Israel to the Nazis is an anti-Semitic trope.
Ironically, Omar also announced a planned trip to Israel with her colleague, Rashida Tlaib. It has been reported that Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu will allow Omar to enter Israel.
Earlier in the year, it was also revealed that Omar’s colleague freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D, MI) also used the Israeli company to power her site. Tlaib is a self-described “Palestinian”.
