Israel has a long-standing history of engaging in deceitful behavior. For years, they have refused to acknowledge the existence of up to 400 nuclear weapons despite a plethora of evidence that the country indeed possesses the bombs. Israel has also attempted to place bombs inside of American, British, and Egyptian civilian targets in the Lavon Affair in 1954. They killed 34 Americans when they attacked the American USS Liberty in 1967. Both countries hastily ruled it an accident, but it didn’t convince everyone. Now, recently discovered FBI documents give eerie information that dwarfs all of these incidents; the files suggest that Israeli nationals working for Mossad had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

Recently, Rep. Ilhan Omar has criticized people in the United States who support Israel’s government and that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) influence.
I support the country of Israel and territories of Palestinian people; Israel is a legitimate country with an insane history. I believe in private property rights and do not believe two wrongs make a right. Peace between Jews and Arabs in the region is a very difficult issue. We must not get distracted by the trees of political rhetoric from the potential peace of the forest.

On Thursday, Democratic freshman Congressman Max Rose of New York apologized for remarks made a few weeks ago by Representative Ilhan Omar, Democrat of Minnesota. Her controversial comments were widely interpreted in the media as antisemitic. As a result, members of Democratic party leadership began the process this week of seeking a primary challenger against Omar, only months into her first term.

The apartheid state of Israel has long tried to hide some of their more barbaric practices. Most notably, they adamantly refuse to admit their possession of nuclear weapons, despite possessing up to 400 of them. The country has also stolen weapons-grade uranium from the United States. Moreover, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself is far from an innocent man. He famously asserted that the terror attacks on 9/11 were good for Israel, and has smuggled nuclear triggers for his own program.
Sadly, though, these all pale in comparison to the Jewish state’s latest stroke of immorality.
