Who didn’t see this coming? The “real reason” behind the worldwide spread of the Omicron variant?
How could we have missed it? You ready?
Everything wrong in the world is the fault of the evil Jooos, didn’t you know that? In the warped minds of Islamists, everywhere, that is. (Not to be confused with “Islamic”; we’re talking extremists, here.) Specifically, in this case, Jewish homosexuals in Israel are responsible for the Omicron outbreak.
Can’t make it up, don’t have to.
In addition to blaming the LGBTQ+ community in Israel, as reported by The Jerusalem Post, Imam of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Issam Amira, also blamed the Israeli government and media for the outbreak. Wouldn’t want to leave any Jewish stone unturned, you know.

According to Amira, the Omicron variant “did not spread until the government and media announced its existence.” The Islamic “scholar” went on to claim that the government and media that “brought the variant” are the same that “allow and encourage homosexuality.”

This is not the first time that the Imam has made controversial and problematic comments.
In 2020, Amira was arrested by Israel Police and received a six-month ban from al-Aqsa Mosque for praising the Muslim who murdered and beheaded French teacher Samuel Paty for using illustrations of the prophet Mohammed.
Amira’s silly claim is as ignorant as it is ridiculous. But unlike Democrat liars in the White House and on Capitol Hill, Islamist extremists are truly twisted in their blind hatred of all things Israel and the Jewish people. Sure, they preach to their extremist choir. All leaders in positions of power preach to their respective choirs, be those choirs religious, political, or otherwise. That said, one need only look to the Taliban in aftermath of Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan to understand the depth of depravity and unbridled hatred of Muslim extremists.
Islamists like Amira fully understand, for example, the blatant hypocrisy of the United Nations Security Council and its history of throwing Israeli under the bus during every Israeli-Palestinian conflict, most of which begin with the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas indiscriminately firing rockets into Israel civilian areas.
Yet? From 1955 until 2013, the UN issued 77 resolutions against Israel and just one against the Palestinians.
And then there’s America’s Democrat Party.
As if the Democrat Party’s treatment of Israel wasn’t already disgraceful enough — who can forget Barack Obama’s refusal to veto yet another UN resolution condemning the Jewish State as one of the final acts of his presidency — along comes Somali refugee turned Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and the rest of the anti-Semitic Squad to launch baseless attacks against the only democracy in the Middle East at every concocted opportunity.
And every time Omar or one of her left-wing loon sisters attacks Israel, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Party defend the guilty anti-Semitic party or go full-metal crickets.
Finally, let’s not forget the lapdog liberal media.
As I was writing, I randomly went on a quick Google side trip to grab a few random examples of the so-called “mainstream” media treatment of Israel. Here ya go:
Similar stories abound, as they have for years.
We’ve documented Democrat anti-Israel nonsense here at RedState, as well.
The bottom line:
Israel-hating, Jew-hating, radical Islamist extremists are going to spew anti-Semitic hatred until at least the end of days. And America’s Democrats?
I don’t know about the end of days, but I do know the Democrat Party does its hypocritical best to condemn Israel as often as it can.
And that is a disgraceful shame.
