ADL demands apology from former IDF MAG over ‘disgusting’ tweet to Ilhan Omar

The Anti Defamation League’s midwest regional office has called out a former head of Israel’s military prosecution in the West Bank for a “misogynistic, racist and completely disgusting” tweet targeting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Maurice Hirsch had responded to a post in which Omar wished her daughter a happy birthday, writing “Do you know who her father is? Is it your brother or your lover?”

He appeared to be referencing false reports that the congresswoman married her brother.

ADL says the post “requires an immediate apology. There should be no place on Twitter for hate like this.”
