Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, a Muslim and a newcomer to Congress, already is causing controversy, with a series of anti-Semitic comments, her defense of al-Qaida, her explosions at reporters and her alignment with an extreme left faction in the Democratic Party.
Target - Petition - Resignation
She’s already the target of a petition demanding her resignation.

Klayman, who founded Judicial Watch and now runs FreedomWatch, said Omar’s “repeated anti-Semitic proclamations are not ‘slips of the tongue.'”
