Ilhan Omar calls to defund Israel, accuses Jewish state of ethnic cleansing

Hot off her re-election to the U.S House of Representatives, Ilhan Omar has accused Israel of ethnic cleansing.

She was responding to news that Israel demolished illegally built structures built by some Bedouin families, in Khirbet Humsah, in an area under Israeli responsibility. The new report said 73 men, women and children were displaced.

“This a grave crime – in direct violation of international law,” Omar wrote on Twitter. 

She also called to hold the U.S. accountable for violations if any American equipment was used in the demolition.

“If they used any U.S. equipment it also violates U.S. law,” she said. “An entire community is now homeless and will likely experience lifelong trauma. The United States of America should not be bankrolling ethnic cleansing. Anywhere.”

The demolition was also condemned by the United Nations and the European Union.

Israel contended that the small community had built these structures in a military live-fire zone and the High Court ruled that “the petitioners have no recognized property rights in these areas. These are intruders who use these areas for grazing. The construction in the area has not been authorized and is illegal.”

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
