Ilhan Omar: Big blow to pro-Pakistan American MP Ilhan, discharged from powerful committee, spews venom on Kashmir
Fierce critic of Israel and the Jewish bloc
“We think this is a political ploy,” White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said at her daily news conference. Other prominent Democratic Party lawmakers have been unfairly removed from key committees in recent weeks by Republican Party lawmakers in the House of Representatives. This is an insult to the people of America.
“We believe that MP Omar is a highly respected member of Congress,” Jean-Pierre said. He has also apologized for his comments made earlier. In his emotional speech on the floor of the House, Omar said he was not surprised by it. Omar (40) is the third Muslim lawmaker in the US House of Representatives. She represents Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District. For the past few years, she has been involved in the anti-India campaign inside and outside the House. She has also been a fierce critic of Israel and the Jewish bloc.
