Omar spokesperson Jeremy Slevin posted the accusation Wednesday on Twitter, claiming the pro-Israel political committee’s attack ads against Omar were endangering her.
“The language AIPAC uses in paid ads to smear and vilify [Omar] is virtually identical to the language used in death threats she gets,” Slevin claimed on Twitter.
“Make no mistake: AIPAC is putting Rep. Omar’s life at risk with repeated Islamophobic attack ads,” he continued.
Slevin posted a screenshot of an AIPAC ad referencing Omar’s infamous June comments where she compared Israel and America to terrorist groups Hamas and the Taliban as well as a screenshot of a different tweet by Omar about a death threat she received.
“We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” Omar wrote in June. “I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice.”
An AIPAC spokesperson told Fox News in an email statement that the ad puts a spotlight on her statements comparing America and Israel to terrorist organizations.
“The ad concerning Representative Omar is completely fair and accurate,” the spokesperson said. “It is not a personal attack and highlights her outrageous statement putting the United States and Israel on the same level as the Taliban and Hamas.”
