House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has seemingly disregarded Rep. Ilhan Omar's remarks comparing U.S. and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban.

Pelosi called Omar a "valued member of our caucus" and argued her subsequent "clarification" of her remarks was satisfactory.

"Members did become concerned when the tweet that was put out equated the United States with Taliban and Hamas … and then she clarified it, and we thanked her for clarification," Pelosi said.

Omar tweeted Monday;

"We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban."

"I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice."

Omar responded with a statement claiming she was not asserting any “moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel.”

“On Monday, I asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken about ongoing International Criminal Court investigations,” Omar said.

“To be clear: the conversation was about accountability for specific incidents regarding those ICC cases, not a moral comparison between Hamas and the Taliban and the U.S. and Israel."

"I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

Pelosi said she was satisfied with Omar's clarification.

On Saturday, Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib also faced fire after claiming there is no “'freedom of speech' for Muslim women in Congress

"What I’m saying is, end of subject," the speaker said Sunday.

"She clarified, we thanked her, end of subject."

On Saturday, Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib also faced fire after claiming there is no “freedom of speech" for Muslim women in Congress in response to the backlash against Omar.

Tlaib posted to Twitter on Thursday:

“Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress."

"The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress."

"House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color."
