Ilhan Omar is always in the middle of controversy.
The freshman Democrat’s repeated anti-Semitic comments have her political standing on thin ice.
But things went from bad to worse when she was smacked with a nasty surprise from the one person she never suspected.
New York University student Leen Dweik made headlines when video captured of her berating Chelsea Clinton over Clinton’s criticisms of Omar’s anti-Semitic comments.
Dweik said figures like Clinton piling on Omar were the cause of the New Zealand Mosque shootings.
But it turns out Dweik is also souring on Omar.
Dweik was furious Omar laid out her foreign policy visions in a Washington Post op-ed where she called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
very disappointed w this, two-state is neither viable nor just https://t.co/6EqMhRwBhF

Dweik is part of an emerging force on the Left that does not believe Israel has a right to exist because it is supposedly an oppressive “apartheid” state.
The Left’s sympathies –as Dweik expressed – are with the Palestinians.
And even Ilhan Omar’s radical anti-Semitism is not enough to satisfy this growing group of bigots on the Left.
Support for Israel’s right to defend itself against Islamic terrorism used to be an issue both parties could agree on.
That is clearly no longer the case.
