Rep. Omar on Saying Israel ‘Hypnotized the World’: ‘I Don’t Know How My Comments Would Be Offensive’ to Jews

‘My comments precisely are addressing what was happening during the Gaza war’

EXCERPT:

HARLOW: “I do want to ask you also about your comments on Israel. To remind people what you tweeted about Israel in 2012 during the offensive in Gaza, you wrote, 'Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.' You've commented a lot since then trying to explain what you meant by that. And I wonder just what your message is this morning as the firs on our game changer series to Jewish-Americans who find that deeply offensive.”
OMAR: “Oh, that’s really a regrettable way of expressing that. I -- I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans. My comments precisely are addressing what was happening during the Gaza war.”
