Omar Re-Tweets Publication That Claimed the Holocaust Was  ‘Different from How the Jews Tell It’

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) re-tweeted a tweet from AJ+ regarding legislation that Omar introduced that would “block anyone who implements Brunei’s anti-LGBTQ laws from travel or business in the U.S.” on Monday, just days after AJ+ found itself at the center of controversy for a video, which claimed Jews skewed Holocaust facts.

“I introduced this legislation because we have a duty to confront hate and bigotry whenever we see it,” Omar said in a re-tweet of an AJ+ tweet from last week.

Omar’s re-tweet comes just days after AJ+ found itself at the center of controversy after posting a video that questioned the Holocaust.

Haaretz reported on Sunday:

“Al-Jazeera’s AJ+ Arabic channel pulled a video it posted to its social media channels Friday night that claimed Jews exploit the Holocaust and that Israel is the genocide’s “greatest beneficiary.” Two journalists who created the video were later suspended.”

The seven minute-long, Arabic-language video asserted that though the Holocaust did occur, “it’s different from how the Jews tell it,” Israeli media reported.

“The gas chambers killed millions of Jews…So the story says. How true is the #Holocaust and how did the Zionists benefit from it,” AJ+ Arabic tweet translates.

AJ+ eventually removed the video from its platforms on Saturday, citing that the piece “violated the network’s editorial standards,” but the video “reportedly gained 1.1 million views on Facebook and Twitter.”

Omar’s association with a publication like AJ+ is particularly troubling, given her recent string of anti-Semitic comments.
