🇺🇸 NY Post boycotted by Yemeni-Americans over Ilhan Omar, 9/11 cover | Al Jazeera English



Right-wing media in the US have attacked congresswoman Ilhan Omar over her comments on the September 11 Twin Towers attacks.
The New York Post has been among the most virulent, but the Yemeni American Merchants Association has defended Omar and called for a boycott of the newspaper for 30 days.

  1. One of the best things about living in the USA is freedom. Store owners have the freedom to carry any or none of the local newspapers and their customers have the freedom to go somewhere else to get the paper they want to read. Its really simple.

  2. The Isreali Mossad and the CIA did 9/11 to initiate the Oded Yinon plan to destroy 7 Muslim countries that Supported the Palestinians. Some people were The Isreali Mossad and The CIA!!!

  3. I say: Let them boycott. This is America, not some third-world country where they cut out your tongue and stone you for expressing opinions.

  4. Big support to brave Yemeni Americans NY POST is anti Islam so please BOYCOTT don't sell their news peppers or buy ,

  5. Boycotting truth? Nothing was out of context.

  6. She's so disrespectful to those who were killed on 9/11. It's a huge wound to America and it't not something that should ever be forgotten. I was eleven when it happened and even then I knew it was huge deal. Americans should be upset by her comment. As a U.S. congress member, she should know better. She has to put ALL Americans first, not just those who follow Islam.

  7. كيف ما أفتخر اني يمني

  8. Close the border, no more foreigners.

  9. I’m Muslim American and who made Omar our goddess? The Muslim minority status has made them defensive, and they’ve developed a cult like approach to dealing with criticism.

  10. If she's so hard done by, she can always go home

  11. Well there’s nothing wrong in criticizing her hatred towards Jews, lack of empathy towards 9/11 victims, and sympathy towards radical Islamic terrorism. She should learn to be more grateful to the country that saved her from a tent in Africa.

  12. You people came here to join us. If you dont like it go back where you belong

  13. NY post spreading hate? That’s the pot calling the kettle black isn’t it?

    So don’t sell the NY Post. Big deal?

    Omar has no respect. Try something like that in her native country.

    A picture says 1,000 words.

    Straighten up Omar. You show no respect for a country that took you in. No other Muslim countries offered you asylum. It’s all take.

  14. Glad to see people standing up to this. That use of 911 imagery was disgusting. The editor of the post should be fired at minimum.

  15. AIPAC is nervous.Israel needs american sheeples sleepy and confused.

  16. Next Bds movement boycott Israel apartheid state 🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱, I stand by Mrs Ihan Omar

  17. Trump for 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  18. Ilhan Omar terrorist!!
    imagine if a white Congressmen got so excited about taking classes on the kkk

  19. That's good, hit (((their))) filthy pockets.

  20. Boycott Murdoch's Media Hate Machine Of Division & Bigotry. Not 30 days only but for good

  21. WP always cover the massacre of innocent victims worldwide to are murders by virgin loving men.
    Good job

  22. She should not have said “Someone did something” should have just stated the truth and said “Zionist Jews, Israel the US government and Saudi Arabia did 9/11”

  23. Truth hurts. 9/11 is never forgotten
