Her tweet from only a week ago drew more than 5,000 comments, which is tenfold her average number of engaged followers. It also drew the ire of Hamas, which issued its own statement Friday.Dr. Basem Naim of Hamas' International Relations Office praised Omar for"defending justice," but blasted the Minnesota representative for an"unfair comparison" to Israel and the United States.
"We appreciate Mrs. Ilhan Omar's stances in defending justice and the rights of the oppressed around the world, foremost of which are the just rights of our Palestinian people, but we deplore this unfair combination that is contrary to justice and international law," the Hamas website stated.
"The Palestinian people have been living under the Zionist occupation for more than seven decades, during which they suffered a lot, and the most heinous crimes were committed against them. Throughout these decades, they remained steadfast, fighting for their freedom and independence, given all opportunities, showed a lot of flexibility, and paid very high prices to achieve these rights by peaceful means. However, the other side refused to comply with all international resolutions, and continued its arrogance and oppression of our people and threatening international stability and security, and unfortunately, with the full support and protection of successive US administrations." headtopics.com

Himes: 'This should never happen, and it should never happen with members of the opposition party.'Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT) of the House Intelligence Committee on new calls to subpoena former attorneys general William Barr and Jeff Sessions in connection to the DOJ obtaining the data of two congressional democrats. Shame on those who perpetuated this at the request of Trump. Both Sessos and Barr along with Rosendtein were complicit in this and nothing they say is going to make me believe they didn't know anything. Put them on the stand and let see if they commit perjury. Disbar them. We talk about political consequences if the proverbial shoe were on the other foot. Republicans would be more aggressive and demand accountability. Dems seemingly are impotent at prosecuting the atrocities of the previous four years. Unfortunately for the sake of our democracy. It’s a typical move from a dictator!
