Politically speaking, Washington DC has now become an occupied territory.

Outspoken Minnesota Congresswoman, Ilhan Omar (D) has the two-party establishment in knots following her recent statements on the abnormal power and influence of the Israeli Lobby over US politics.

Omar’s critics are claiming that she’s guilty of “antisemitism” for criticizing Israel’s oppressive policies that subjugate the native Palestinian population, but the charge doesn’t stop there. Following Israel Lobby successes in the UK and France in limiting speech concerning Zionism and criticism of Israel – US lawmakers are now pushing to extend proscribed ‘hate’ language to include any criticism of fundamentalist Zionism, the “dual loyalty” of the House and Senate members, and even criticism of The Lobby itself.

Does Anti-Israel really equal Anti-Semitic? Upon examination of the evidence, it seems that Omar is merely observing her legitimate Constitutional rights, while US lawmakers opposing her are not. Press TV UK’s Robert Inlakesh explains how. Watch:
