Rep. Ilhan Omar says ads featuring her own antisemitic comments are putting her 'life at risk'

"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," AIPAC said.

Representative Ilhan Omar has accusing a pro-Israel group of putting her life in danger after they published advertising featuring a quote she said earlier this year comparing Israel and the US to the Taliban and Hamas.

The advertising harkens back to comments Omar made back in June after tensions between Israel and Hamas had flared into a barrage of rockets being fired between the two.

"We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban," Omar tweeted in June. "I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice."

"For Ilhan Omar, there is no difference between American and the Taliban," a screenshot of a Facebook ad reads.

"Between Israel and Hamas, between democracies and terrorists," the ad continues.

The ad calls on Americans to tell Omar "condemn terrorists, not America."

The screenshot of the ad was posted by Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin, who slammed the advertising for being "Islamophobic," and potentially putting her life in danger.

"The language AIPAC uses in paid ads to smear and vilify [Ilhan Omar] is virtually identical to the language used in death threats she gets," wrote Slevin on Twitter.

"Make no mistake: AIPAC is putting Rep. Omar's life at risk with repeated Islamophobic attack ads," he continued.

In an email statement given to Fox News, an AIPAC spokesperson said that the add simply shines light on comments Omar had made.

"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."
