Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called out Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Tuesday, at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) weeks after her remarks deemed anti-Semitic triggered controversy.

“Take it from this Benjamin: It’s not about the Benjamins!” Netanyahu said to the Washington conference via satellite in response to a tweet Omar posted in February.

Omar had previously drawn condemnation from members of both parties last month after she suggested in the tweet that AIPAC has been paying members of Congress to support Israel. She later apologized for the tweet —  and for other comments — but also insisted on what she called “the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics.”
