Peter Beinart w/ Rep. Ilhan Omar

Feb 10 2023


Last week, the House of Representatives voted to remove Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee, allegedly on the grounds that she’s made antisemitic statements. In truth, the removal constitutes retaliation for her fierce devotion to human rights, and her refusal to make an exception for the United States and its allies, including Israel. Join Representative Omar for a conversation with Jewish Currents editor-at-large and FMEP non-resident Fellow Peter Beinart about the events of last week, the claims that she’s antisemitic, and her ongoing struggle to make the United States a more just global actor.
