Omar retweets video by anti-Israel group investigated by FBI for possible terrorism ties
On Tuesday, the day after she posted her infamous tweet likening the U.S. and Israel to terror groups Hamas and the Taliban, Omar retweeted a post with a video produced by the International Solidarity Movement (ISM).
Issawi was freed in a prisoner swap in 2011, but was quickly re-arrested after breaking his release terms. While in prison, he began a hunger strike that captured international attention.Bernstein also pointed out in his piece that ISM co-founders Huwaida Arraf and Adam Shapiro penned an article that promoted using nonviolent resistance in tandem with violence.
"The Palestinian resistance must take on a variety of characteristics – both nonviolent and violent," the article read."But most importantly it must develop a strategy involving both aspects.""No other successful nonviolent movement was able to achieve what it did without a concurrent violent movement – in India militants attacked British outposts and interests while Gandhi conducted his campaign, while the Black Panther Movement and its earlier incarnations existed side-by-side with the Civil Rights Movement in the United States," the ISM co-founders continued.
PELOSI NIXES FURTHER ACTION AGAINST OMAR, SAYS ‘SHE HAS A RIGHT TO MAKE THAT POINT’Additionally, the ISM leaders detailed the use of"violent" resistance to achieve goals."Violent resistance is when an armed Palestinian fighter shoots an Israeli who is oppressing him," they wrote, with Bernstein pointing out they did not specify Israeli soldiers, but rather"any Israeli deemed to be"oppressing" a Palestinian." headtopics.com
In a Saturday statement to Fox News, Bernstein said he doesn't believe that ISM has"been very active lately" and suspects that the video retweeted by Omar"is recycled from some time long ago.""But in any event, ISM's always been a propaganda machine for the Palestinians, not an objective human rights source," he said.

When asked if House Democrats would be pursuing further action against Omar during a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., didn’t even let the reporter finish his question before answering in the negative."I think that she clarified her remarks and we accept that, and she has a point that she wanted to make and she has a right to make that point," Pelosi said."There's some unease about how it was interpreted."
"She made her clarification," Pelosi added before moving onto the next question.Neither Omar’s office nor ISM immediately responded to Fox News’ requests for comment.Houston Keene is a reporter for Fox News DigitalGet all the stories you need-to-know from the most powerful name in news delivered first thing every morning to your inbox headtopics.com
