Leading House Democrats will offer a resolution Wednesday condemning anti-Semitism in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest remarks on Israel, a senior Democratic aide said.

The declaration, supported by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, comes after Omar’s new remarks suggesting American supporters of Israel are pushing people to have “allegiance to a foreign country.” It’s at least the third time the Minnesota Democrat’s words have put her colleagues in a more delicate spot than usual on the U.S.-Israel relationship, and the second time in as many months that she’s drawn a stern backlash from party leaders.

Senior Democrats demanded a retraction and apology from Omar, with one House chairman saying she invoked a “vile, anti-Semitic slur” and another congressional veteran tweeting that Omar “continues to mischaracterize support for Israel.”

“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee,” Omar tweeted back.

...

“It’s unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow American citizens because of their political views, including support for the U.S.-Israel relationship,” Engel said in a statement that also suggested she apologize.

The charge of anti-Semitism is a risible farce given the fact that the anti-Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanction bill that Omar is referring to in her criticism of loyalty to a foreign country was introduced by Marco Rubio who is Catholic, not Jewish. Most of the congresspeople supporting this bill aren't Jewish. The Zionists and their supporters are using charges of anti-Semitism to stifle fair criticism of them and their oppressive state.

Likewise, the statement that Israel has hypnotized the world speaks to the effectiveness of the Zionists' propaganda machine that disseminates the lie that they took over a land empty of inhabitants and were innocents who were attacked by the surrounding countries after the UN's Palestine resolution and the Zionists' declaration of statehood, and that squatters voluntary abandoned scores of villages during the 1948 War.

Also, it is about the Benjamins when lobbying groups such as the NRA, the fossil fuel industry and AIPAC in an inherently corrupt governmental system allows these groups to buy politicians to do their bidding.

Never once in these statements of fact did Omar mention or reference Jews.

We need more people like Omar who have the balls to call a spade a spade in the face of disingenuous censorship.

Keep speaking the truth Omar!

Any Democrat who signs on to this bill will never have my vote, no matter the stakes.

@edgarblythe,
Why? Standing up to neonazis is a good thing.

@oralloy,
That's true. Which is why I would never vote for anybody supporting such a bill.

The bill stands up to neonazis.

The people who support the bill are standing up to neonazis.

You are opposing people for standing up to neonazis.

Outrageous false accusations of imaginary crimes is anything but fair.

Your claim that Israel's very existence counts as oppression is outrageous.

I have firsthand knowledge of the gun rights movement. Our power has nothing to do with money.

Omar thinks that she can disguise her antisemitism by directing her outrageous untrue accusations "at Israel" instead of "at Jews".

She doesn't fool anyone.

The last thing we need are more neonazis spouting outrageous lies about Israel.

They should throw her hate filled ass off the Foreign Affairs committee. This shows intimidation because she is Muslim and they will do anything not to lose that vote. And, of course, some of them hate Jews.

Criticism of the Zionists' very real atrocities is fair.

Conflation of Jews with Zionists is anti-Semitism. Don't be an anti-Semite.

The world will only ask Israel to give more land to the Palestinians as part of a negotiated settlement where Israel's existence is peacefully accepted.

Your intolerance and hatred means that Israel will never have to give any more land to the Palestinians.

The Palestinian state is going to be composed solely of Gaza plus Area A alone. Israel will get to keep the rest of the land.

The only antisemites in this equation are the people who try to disguise their untrue accusations about imaginary Jewish atrocities by directing the false accusations at Israel.

The Zionists will never see the peace that they claim to desire as long as they continue to oppress the Palestinian people.

The Palestinians are easily walled off -- and easily bombed into submission when they grow violent.

I say yes to Israel, and yes to their use of force against Palestinians who refuse to accept their existence.
