Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., on Monday appeared to place America in the same category as the Taliban and Hamas, saying the U.S., Israel and the terrorist groups have all committed “unthinkable atrocities.”
Omar, a member of the progressive “Squad,” posted a tweet that said that the U.S. needs to “have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.”

The Minnesota Democrat then claimed America and Israel have committed “unthinkable atrocities” like those committed by the terrorist groups.
“We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” wrote Omar. “I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice.”
The post also included a video of the congresswoman questioning Blinken during the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s Monday hearing on the State Department’s budget request and foreign policy strategy.
