Evangelical Christian leader Laurie Cardoza-Moore has put out new statements against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, following a decision this week by Fox News to suspend Judge Jeanine Pirro for challenging the freshman lawmaker.
Pirro’s Justice with Judge Jeanine was put on hold after she questioned Omar’s allegiance to America.
“Americans will not tolerate antisemitism, whether delivered from a Christian Nationalist, a member of the KKK or an Islamist,” Cardoza-Moore said in a statement. “Ilhan Omar is waging an unholy war to sanitize antisemitism and we the people will not tolerate her veiled antisemitic threats.”
Cardoza-Moore is the head of the nonprofit organization Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN), which works to educate Christians about their “biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel.” PJTN last month began disseminating a petition to have Omar removed from Congress. So far, tens of thousands of people have signed it.
Last week, Cardoza-Moore personally delivered letters to the offices of Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and US Attorney-General William Barr in Washington, calling for a thorough investigation into Omar’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. Cardoza-Moore claims that Omar fundraises for the Muslim Brotherhood, a social and political Islamist movement with ties to terror.
“It is our mission to stand-up and defend the Jewish people and Israel against the rise of global antisemitism, no matter where it comes from,” said Cardoza-Moore. “Omar may have hypnotized some members of Congress, but American patriots will not tolerate her attempts to normalize antisemitism.”
Omar herself has used the term “hypnotize” against the State of Israel. In 2012, she tweeted that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” The tweet came in reaction to Israel’s November 2012 operation against Hamas in Gaza. The tweet resurfaced among ongoing controversy relating to Omar's remarks about Israel.
