Jacob Wohl started this petition to Nancy Pelosi (US House of Representatives)
Rep. Ilhan Omar was flagged during the campaign for having a proclivity towards making antisemitic remarks, while refusing to condemn terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas.
Upon being elected to the House of Representatives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi placed Rep. Omar on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which is critical in steering America’s foreign policy. Since taking office, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s antisemitism has continued, and even escalated.
She blamed Jewish Money for America’s pro-Israeli foreign policy and invoked “Benjamin’s Baby” as an antisemitic trope aimed at Jared Kushner.
Enough is enough! It’s time for Rep. Ilhan Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Meanwhile Rep. Omar is calling on Democratic leaders to disregard a recent ruling by the Senate parliamentarian disallowing prominent immigration reforms – a key element of the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion domestic agenda – to be included in the massive package.
The ruling by Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, announced Sunday evening, marked a sharp setback to President Biden’s first-year agenda, which includes an effort to provide green cards to millions of immigrants.
Omar, a member of the informal liberal group known as the “squad,” suggested Monday that the best way to respond to the ruling is simply to ignore it.
“This ruling by the parliamentarian, is only a recommendation. @SenSchumer and the @WhiteHouse can and should ignore it,” Omar tweeted, referring to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.). “We can’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to do the right thing.”
