Saudi Arabia has a powerful lobby as well, though it’s clearly more acceptable to criticize Saudi Arabia’s, as evidenced by the fact that the MSM does so frequently. Saying you can’t criticize an Israel lobby group if it involves mentioning money is saying you can’t criticize an Israel lobby group at all, because, again, money is how lobby groups influence policy. It’s literally impossible to criticize AIPAC without mentioning money, so you are necessarily saying that literally any criticism of AIPAC is antisemitic. That’s absurd, power-serving nonsense.

Yes, Omar criticized AIPAC early on in her term. That’s a very legitimate thing to do. Omar has been a critic of the Israeli government’s reprehensible actions. This too is a legitimate thing to do.

Your argument is silly.
