A U.S.-born Israeli author and Middle East expert was disturbed to see Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) accusing the United States of "western imperialism" in a stump speech for Bernie Sanders.
During a campaign rally in Minneapolis, the far-left-wing Democratic congresswoman declared her support for the socialist presidential candidate.
"I am beyond honored and excited for a president who will fight against western imperialism and fight for a just world," she said. "I am excited for President Bernie Sanders."
Omar, a virulent anti-Semite, also claimed that a "movement" must be built in order to defeat President Trump.
"We have a phenomenon of American congresswomen or American congressmen who actually hate American values," observes David Rubin, author of Trump and the Jews and former mayor of Shiloh, Israel. "That includes people like Ilhan Omar and Bernie Sanders who identify with the Communist revolution. They identify with socialism. It is disturbing."
Rubin adds that the term "western imperialism" is right out of the Cold War.
"The Soviet Union was always attacking western imperialism," he notes. "Now we have Ilhan Omar attack western imperialism at the campaign rally for Bernie Sanders and endorsing Bernie Sanders for president."
Rubin finds it telling that a radical Muslim congresswoman would support Sanders -- a Jew in name only.
