Excerpt: Al-Aqidi decried the use of identity politics on the campaign trail. "Muslims, Christians, Jews are all Americans," she said, while going on to blast Omar's past comments that have been labeled anti-Semitic. "Every time she opens her mouth she says something either anti-U.S. or anti-Semitic," al-Aqidi said. Omar has apologized for past tweets about Israel that played on anti-Semitic tropes.Al-Aqidi also alleged that Omar is more interested in raising her own political profile than helping her constituents.
