What Omar said in response to Greenwald’s tweet was right up to the line. It was also wrong - Israeli influence in American politics isn’t really about the Benjamins at all. Sure they have well funded lobbyists, but I think we all understand that’s basically table stakes in modern US politics. There are historical and profound cultural links that are much more important. If it was “all about the Benjamins” then the US would back Israel’s rivals who have much more cash to spend on such things.
I’m happy with the apology. (And yeah, big contrast with the GOP’s behaviour on this kind of thing) There are plenty of ways to criticise Israel without resorting to the “Israel controls everything with money” trope. I look forward to seeing those critiques from Congresswoman Omar.
It has something to do with Israel when a comment about disproportionate Israeli influence in US politics is embedded as part of your tweet.
