Anti-Israel Middle East studies academics like George Washington University associate professor---and niece of the PLO's Saeb Erakat---Noura Erakat continue to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar against charges of anti-Semitism.
This as House Democrats plan to vote on a resolution this week condemning Omar's offensive remarks, while eleven Jewish organizations have written to Speaker Pelosi asking that Omar be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, based both on her bigotry and her association with the terror-connected Islamic Relief USA (read the Middle East Forum's report on the latter here).
Predictably, Erakat dubs all this "Islamophobic" and insists that "IStandWithIlhan." And why wouldn't she? After all, Omar's expressing the same anti-Israel, anti-American, and pro-Islamist views she and her academic cohorts have been espousing for decades.
