#uc Statement: Rep. Ilhan Omar’s tweet

#unitecloud will always call out anti-Semitism when and where it is used.

We were disappointed when one of Minnesota’s elected leaders, Representative Ilhan Omar, used an anti-Semitic trope in her tweet. We appreciate her apology, and as she stated, we call on her to continue to educate herself from the Jewish community on what anti-Semitism is in order to avoid loaded language that is hurtful to the Jewish community.

We stand strong in the idea that supporting Palestinian rights is not anti-Semitic and appropriate language is important. We commend Representative Ilhan Omar in her exploration of the influence of money on politicians and do not believe that doing so is inherently anti-Semitic.

This statement was written by a Jewish member of our community and #unitecloud’s leadership team.
