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.
This tweet, in response to a birthday message from @IlhanMN to her daughter, is misogynistic, racist and completely disgusting. It requires an immediate apology. There should be no place on Twitter for hate like this. pic.twitter.com/cDtSrZtVML
