Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been criticized for anti-Israel tweets and statements recently and appears to be scrubbing her Twitter feed of the offending remarks.
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is deleting her anti-Semitic tweets.
But deleting tweets doesn’t change that she still supports the anti-Semitic BDS movement to boycott and delegitimize Israel.

These are tweets that were deleted.

So far, the congresswoman has not given any statement about why she’s cleaning up her timeline, but users of the microblogging site noticed that the tweets began disappearing on Sunday.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) is deleting her anti-Semitic tweets.
No comment or clarification about changing her views on this subject, so I'm guessing she's just gonna delete these and hope the fact that she's an antisemitic bigot gets memory holed. 🤷♂️

Plenty of users have taken screen shots of the statements, so Omar’s efforts to clean up her anti-Semitic image probably won’t help in the long run.
