Ilhan Omar: Asking Me to Apologize for My Attacks on Jews for Having Dual Loyalties Is Just a Jewish Plot to Demand My Allegiance to Israel

Interesting!



Meanwhile, You-Know-Who groups are demanding that Omar be stripped of her membership on the House Foreign Affairs committee.

A group of leading Jewish organizations petitioned the House of Representative's top Democrats on Monday, demanding that Rep. Ilan Omar (D., Minn.) be removed from her position on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee in light of her numerous anti-Semitic remarks and ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Jewish people, according to a copy of a letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

House Democrats will "take floor action" to... do nothing, I imagine. The simplest way to show disapproval is to take away this foreign illiterate's seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, but they're not going to do that. They have to continue doing outreach to antisemites. They're an important part of the Democrat coalition.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats will take floor action Wednesday in response to controversial remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar about Israel, the second such rebuke of the freshman Democrat from party leaders in recent weeks.

Pelosi and other senior Democrats are drafting a resolution to address the controversy, which ballooned over the weekend following a public clash between Omar and senior Jewish lawmakers.

The resolution, which is still being finalized, comes after a backlash from top Democrats who accused Omar of anti-Semitism for referring to pro-Israel advocates' "allegiance to a foreign country."

Omar's remarks are just the latest in a series of comments she's made that many of her Democratic colleagues say are blatantly anti-Semitic and must be retracted.

Democratic leaders are still debating whether to mention Omar by name in the resolution, according to multiple sources. Staffers for Pelosi and top Democrats, including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), began drafting the text of the resolution over the weekend as the confrontation between Omar and her colleagues unfolded on Twitter.
