Ilhan Omar introduced resolution to boycott Israel, likening it to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. How do you feel about...?

There is indeed a connection with Nazi Germany:
The BDS boycott and any such measure in Congress, is antisemitic in nature, being an idea taken directly from the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses:
- - - - Start of extract:
“The assault against the Jews began on April 1  with a boycott of Jewish businesses.”
- - - - End of extract - - - -
The U.S. Democratic Party appears to predominately sympathize with the Palestinian intention to destroy Israel and expel the Jewish People from it. This seems somewhat illustrated by their two recent elections of anti-Israel politicians, one of whom Congressperson Ilhan Abdullahi Omar was fast-tracked to the House [U.S. House of Representatives] Foreign Affairs Committee.
“PEW Research Center” survey on Democrat and Republican member sympathy between Israel and the “Palestinian” Arabs, shows greater support for Israel’s enemies among Democrats:
People often claim they are only “criticizing” Israel / Israeli policies, but by the word “criticize”, what such people really mean is: “make unsubstantiated-accusations against”. Yet they choose to do that against Israel; not other countries!
When are falsehoods against Israel typically due to anti-Semitism? UNSUBSTANTIATED-allegations against Israel that insult the reader’s intelligence, by being typically-provided with:
No details, no objective-sources; zero evidence.
Such leaves the impression Israel has become merely a hate-substitute target for that of the Jewish People.
Why do pro-Palestinians / pro-Palestinian Democratic Party politicians, assert falsehood-opinion against Israel that is devoid of any objective-evidence, as “fact”? It is because they assume others will: Likely be anti-Semitic, and thus Willing to accept what they say about Israel while being Unwilling to demand verification.
Let’s be clear about what “Zionism” means:
“Zionism” is simply Jewish nationalism; the desire to protect the re-establishment of Israel within its historic homeland, with Zion – Jerusalem, as its capital, while respecting its neighbours. What is now East Jerusalem (aka the “Old City”), was the capital of all the previous Jewish kingdoms of Judea and (united) kingdom of Israel.
Anti-Zionism is a form of Antisemitism, since the definition of “Antisemitism” includes:
- - - - Start of extract: - - - -
“Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination...”.
- - - - End of extract - - - -
Supporting Antisemitism is Antisemitism:
The Palestinian Education Authority in the Palestinian Territories teaches Holocaust-Denial and admiration of the Nazis:
Image: “Palestinian protesters carry a transparent kite defaced with a swastika ... [Gaza border] - [AFP/Getty Images].”:
President Jimmy Carter’s bias in favour of the Palestinians: Quote December 2006: “... Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory ...”:
President Obama’s bias in favour of the Palestinians: Quote: “But Israel must recognise that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land.”
The falsehood alleging an Israeli-occupation of: “Palestine” / “Palestinian Land”, is Palestinian-propaganda based in denying Jewish roots in their ancestral homeland of Israel, supported by the pro-Palestinian block-vote of up to 56 countries in the United Nations.
The U.N. bias against Israel can be sourced to the block-vote of up to 56 Arab and additional Islamic-aligned countries (e.g. U.N. member states that are also members of the “Organization of Islamic Cooperation”), plus the influence of Arab oil money; compared to Israel being just one country.
United Nations polices are fully-complicit with Palestinian propaganda denying Jewish roots in the land of Israel.
Thus, fully-complicit with Palestinian propaganda denying Jewish roots in the Jews ancestral homeland of Israel, the U.N and European Union falsely-treat the Jewish People as “invaders”, and so also as “thieves” and “illegal-occupiers” of the Jews OWN land (all the areas of land being of the prior Jewish kingdoms of Judea / Israel), likewise illogically of building “illegal-settlements” there, and with Palestinian terrorism regarded as “resistance to occupation”.
Israel cannot logically nor in law, be accused of illegal “occupation” as the land of former Jewish kingdoms of Judea / Israel (on which the Palestinian colonists reside) prior to the 1967 war, was illegally-occupied by Egypt & Jordan. Israel gave the Palestinians autonomy (Egypt & Jordan did not).
Israel cannot in law be accused of illegal “occupation” for the following three reasons. It is not possible to illegally-occupy a region, that was:
1) LAST under the illegal-occupation of a third party: This means prior to the 1967 war, the illegal-occupation by Jordan of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and by Egypt of Gaza.
2) Where all the land in question rightfully belongs to the party, here Israel, accused of the alleged “occupation”: All the land upon which the Palestinian colonists reside, is of previous Jewish sovereign states of the Kingdoms of Israel / Judea.
3) Where the claim of “occupation” is made by an entity, here “Palestine”, which never existed as a sovereign state.
There has never been any “Palestine” sovereign state upon which the “Palestinian” Arabs could either”: > Base any claim to the land of Israel; or > Claim any alleged illegal “occupation”.
Israel is Re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland. The Jews have unbroken presence in their land and previous sovereign states there, since Biblical times. There has never been any “Palestine” sovereign state by which the “Palestinian” Arabs could base any claim to the land of Israel.
The “Palestinian” Arabs falsely-allege Israeli Jews all came from Europe; some Jews being returnee-exiles. Yet the Jewish People are indigenous to their ancestral homeland of Israel, with unbroken presence from Biblical times:
Map of Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah (aka Judea) including the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, with its capital of (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”.
Between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH:
Therefore it is illogical for U.S. Democratic Party Presidents to accuse the Jewish People / Israel, of: “Invading”, “stealing”, “illegally-occupying”, “being a colony”, or having “illegal-settlements” on, the Jewish ancestral homeland.
Since the “Palestinian” Arabs arrived in the land of Israel well after its indigenous Jews, this makes the Arabs the “settler-colonists”.
I hope this helps.

The Jews boycotted Germany between the wars.
The Americans financed Hitler and profitted from the labour camps.
Funny old world.

Well, apparently that isn't true because American Jews came out to support Omar--including Rabbis who said that Trump's attack on Omar is very similar to what the Nazi's did in Germany. As a congresswoman, she has every right to speak out against inhumane treatment worldwide and that at our own border-- as we all should.
I don't have to agree with everything Omar says to understand her. She experienced inhuman treatment in Africa and it is personal for her. Trump is a very dark and disturbed individual. Everything he touches withers and dies.

Not really. Omar introduced a resolution to prohibit the government from punishing Americans who choose to boycott Israel. I'm glad she's defending the freedom of Americans to associate or not associate with whom they choose.

And you lie: "Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has introduced a resolution championing “the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights.”" Not the same thing.

Just when you thought you were free from the clutches of Nazi Germany, four brave congresswomen step forward to remind you that you need to CONCENTRATE on not offending Allah. Don't dare to question them are they will call you a racist, America are you ready for The Jihad Squad. Opening July 26
