Omar Introduces Pro-BDS Resolution and Compares BDS to Boston Tea Party

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) introduced a resolution supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on July 16 and drew an analogy between BDS and the Boston Tea Party in 1773.

The resolution states “that all Americans have the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights at home and abroad” and that anti-BDS legislation is “unconstitutional.” The resolution cites the Boston Tea Party and American efforts to boycott Nazi Germany during World War II as part of the American tradition of boycotts. Omar told Al-Monitor on July 16 the resolution focuses on “the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting. And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”

Omar called for the end of Israeli “occupation” as well as a two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on July 17.

“We should condemn in the strongest terms violence that perpetuates the occupation, whether it is perpetuated by Israel, Hamas or individuals,” Omar said. “If we are going to condemn violent means of resisting the occupation, we cannot also condemn nonviolent means. We cannot simultaneously say we want peace, then openly oppose peaceful means to hold our allies accountable.”

Omar then said she introduced the resolution with Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and John Lewis (D-Ga.).

“[The resolution] recognizes the importance of boycott movements in this country dating back to the Boston Tea Party,” Omar said. “We should honor these movements and our history.”


Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) downplayed Omar’s resolution to The Jerusalem Post, saying, “I can’t imagine that any committee is going to mark up or take seriously any pro-BDS resolution.”

Omar initially said she opposed the BDS movement in August while she was still a candidate for Congress, saying at the time that BDS “stops the dialogue” toward a two-state solution. Omar then came out in support of BDS shortly after she was elected to Congress in November.

Omar will also be visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories in the coming weeks:

Great all flags connected with terrorism and idolatry should be destroyed. I destroyed idolatrous flag few days ago.


What is an idolatrous flag? Is it the flag of a church or do you mean any flag with a cross on it? Many European countries have a flag with some type of cross on them.

Stop trying to break up a marriage.


I'm not. I was just asking a Halachic question.

If he's not an outright goy, he's definitely Erev Rav.

Stop trying to break up a marriage.

Furthermore, it seems like you don't understand how halacha works - An agunah situation presents an incentive to find a way to declare a marriage invalid if they can (but this is also extremely rare and very very difficult to actually do in practice, and is only even a sliver of a possibility because of the heavy weight of an agunah situation).  Even in these type of terrible situations it almost never happens because it's almost impossible halachically to retroactively annul a marriage. 
 
Literally no one is going to invalidate a marriage between two people who are on ok terms, just because they discovered someone had a psychological problem that wasn't disclosed 30 years ago, or whatever other shady issue from a spouse's past that neither has discussed.  No one goes around declaring marriages retrospectively invalid. Not how Judaism works.

Considering how much the Torah emphasizes shalom bayit, it is indeed foolish to raise issues which may end the peace between a husband and a wife.

Can something like that invalidate a marriage if she wasn't told of his past? I heard about an agunah being granted freedom because the rabbis ruled that the marriage was not valid because the man didn't mention his psychological condition.

Are you still in contact with the former homo?

It looks like Barak is keep digging his own grave. Today he published more lies in a pathetic cover up attempt.

* Says he covered his face because it was cold. You can see Epstein on the same day in training, and the ladies walk with open coats. Also Ehud Barak security only in light coat. And Barak must have only walked a few steps between his ride and the Entry. So I am calling [censored] on this excuse.

* Says he had thought Epstein had a 'one time slip' which is why he was willing to give him a second chance. The fact is most of the things Epstein had done have been exposed years ago and while he got an undeserving light conviction in Florida, Barak knew very well what was Epstein all about.

I heard about these tv show, but never watched it. Last thing I watched with Vampires is Twilight Saga ten years ago.

I didn't watch Twilight, but I remember it was extremely popular.

It seems that Milovan Glišić wrote a vampire tale called After Ninety Years (После деведесет година). I have a Serbian-Croatian dictionary written for Croatian readers of Serbian literature, so I might read the tale.
