The above title is a direct quote from Tamir Pardo, who was the director of Mossad from 2011 to 2016. It reflects the beliefs of many/most of the leaders of Israel.
The reason those above cited words are important is two-fold.
The first is the regimented, "professional grade" retaliation against Representative Ilhan Omar for turning over the rock of political "nicety" and exposing the vermin that live beneath it.
“Would talking about the role of the NRA on gun control laws attract this kind of attention? Lobbies influence politics, I don’t think that’s controversial to say."
~ Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director of Jewish Voice of Peace
AIPAC, their covert supporters and their wholly owned politicians (including Pelosi, Schumer and Chelsea "Time to start positioning myself to be President" Clinton) have and are now doing everything in their power to not only destroy Omar's career, but hide their own corruption.
Democratic Leadership Statement on Anti-Semitic Comments of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
What would be humorous, if not so threatening to our American political system is that AIPAC et al have openly admitted to exactly what Rep. Omar accused them of.

‘Forward’ columnist and Emily’s List leader relate ‘gigantic,’ ‘shocking’ role of Jewish Democratic donors
The second reason that this is important is because of the blatant , yet totally "ignored", manipulation of U.S. elections by foreign entities.
Case in point (besides the red herring of Russian manipulation) is that there are numerous Israeli companies, staffed by people with strong ties to the Israel government (some who go in and out of Israeli military Intelligence, seemingly at will) who are actively working to manipulate elections (using VERY gray area tactics) down to the local political level.
Are you getting it yet?
America HAS been being covertly attacked by agents of foreign governments for decades and they DO, in fact, control most of the political leaders of BOTH political parties.
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby”, indeed!
Just beware that they have no problems at all "killing the messenger" unless we, the American people, stand up to them. (and stop giving them billions of dollars per year in "bribe" money).
As for Representative Ilhan Omar?
I, along with millions of other "woke" people and organizations (like Jewish Voice for Peace, etc.) stand with her.
