Rep. Ilhan Omar has ties to Witness for Peace, a group whose members include radical anti-American and anti-Israel activists, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Omar traveled to Honduras as part of the group’s delegation in 2017 and returned calling for an end to U.S. military aid to Honduras.
In a November 2017 tweet, Omar wrote: “After traveling to Honduras as part of the Witness for Peace delegation, I've returned home with a heavy heart and deep concern for the electoral process and human rights crisis the people of Honduras are enduring.”
Witness for Peace is led by board members, including activists who have called for efforts to “dismantle U.S. militarism” and have accused Israel of inflicting “institutionalized racism that equates to modern day apartheid,” The Free Beacon said.
The website said a note of support, claiming to be from the organization, was recently posted on the congresswoman’s office door. It read: “Keep up the good work!” The note was signed: “Witness for Peach Columbia Team.”
Omar, a freshman Democrat, recently apologized after posting tweets questioning the financial relationship between the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the powerful pro-Israel lobby and members of Congress.
