Morton Klein, leader of the Zionist Organization of America, on Tuesday told the House Judiciary Committee that Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar should have been removed from all her congressional committees, just as the Republicans had done to Congressman Steve King from Iowa for spewing racist claptrap.

Klein was born to Holocaust survivors in a displaced persons camp in Germany. At age four, he and his family emigrated from Germany to the United States. In 1993, while serving as the Philadelphia chapter president of the Zionist Organization of America, Klein was elected national president.
