Quote from article:
Israel “hypnotized the world” to hide its “evil deeds,” she wrote in 2012. American support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins, baby,” she wrote last month. And as a Congresswoman, she feels pressured “to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country.”

That’s a trifecta of antisemitism.
I don't think much of Congresswoman Omar generally but I have to say that none of those three things are the least bit antisemitic. It is entirely possible to criticize the government of Israel and it's relationship with the US without antisemitism.

People need to grow a pair and stop wanting to be victims.
The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.
