In leaked audio, Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reportedly claims that John Kerry knew about 200+ Israeli operations in Syria. At the time Kerry was serving as Sectary of State in the Obama administration.

Currently, Kerry sits on President Biden’s National Security Council as a presidential convoy for the climate. Zarif has been the Iranian foreign minister for the past eight years.

Then, it reportedly shocked Zarif to know that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria upwards of 200 times. The New York Times and other outlets obtained the leaked audio.

After the leak, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh acknowledged that the audio was authentic. He told journalists on Monday that the recording was a small part of a seven-hour interview Zarif gave to a well-known economist.

But Khatibzadeh also called the audio’s release “illegal” and “selectively” edited. He did not have a theory on who leaked the audio or how it got out.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
