Tweets get immediate criticism from followers of Twitter across the political spectrum, which teaches the anti-Semitic long tradition of describing Jews as controlling politicians and other powerful figures by money.
Omar's office initially responded to Hill's request for comment about "Benjamins" tweet by specifying his AIPAC tweet. The office does not immediately respond to a follow-up request regarding the AJC statement.

Omar, as a great Tlaib, reproved by the Republicans for their boycott support, the movement of divestment and sanctions (BDS), punishing Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
McCarthy said that the comments of Democratic congressmen were "more" to be repressed than the comments made by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) last year.
The GOP leadership led the King of his appointed committees after he asked if the words "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" had been offensive in a New York Times interview.
Both have maintained that their BDS support is not anti-Semitic.
