Some recent background that provides substance to Omar's inartfully-expressed concerns (from NBC):

Israel 'nation-state' law prompts criticism around the world, including from U.S. Jewish groups
Quote:
The law, which narrowly passed early Thursday, declared among other provisions that only Jews have the right of self-determination in Israel. It was backed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government.

It was enacted just after the 70th anniversary of the birth of the state of Israel and, among other things, strips Arabic of its designation as an official language alongside Hebrew.

Netanyahu went on to clarify his stance in a social media fight with Israeli television and film star, Rotem Sela:
Quote:
Israel is not a state of all its citizens. According to the nation-state law we passed, Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people — and not anyone else.
Times of Israel.

Which then prompted a response from Gal Gadot, Israeli film star of Wonder Woman fame:
Quote:
"Love thy neighbor," the Israeli actress said Sunday on Instagram, where she has 28.3 million followers.

"It is not a matter of right or left, Arabs or Jews, secular or religious," Gadot added. "It is a matter of dialogue, of dialogue for peace, and of our tolerance for each other. It is our responsibility to shine hope and light for a better future for our children."
Gal Gadot hits out at Netanyahu over 'Jewish people' comment (NBC). OMG! GAL GADOT is an anti-Semite too!

Meanwhile, Netanyahu strikes election deal with far-right parties; challengers respond with own alliance; Israel 'nation-state' law prompts criticism around the world, including from U.S. Jewish groups (Israel is just full of anti-Semitism). Yet in Minnesota, the response is, "meh" (in the nicest way, of course): Far from Washington, Rep. Omar's constituents see the Israel controversy in a different light (NBC).

How can anyone not criticize Israel for a law like this???????

Wuoldn't this be the equivalent of Mr Trump signing a law which says only whites have a right to US citizenship? or makeup your own equally disgusting racist law attacking anyone and everyone one hates or thinks of as inferiors.

Republicans ... speak up ... I want to hear your voices on this!!!!!!
