Trump said on Twitter that yesterday's vote in the House on a watered-down antisemitism resolution, which left out all mention of Omar's repeated claims that American Jewish supporters of Israel are guilty of dual loyalties, was a "disgrace".
Trump's comment came a day after, U.S. lawmakers on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred and bigotry, following an acrimonious debate over a Muslim congresswoman's comments about Israel policy.
House Democrats are preparing to vote on a resolution that condemns antisemitism, Islamophobia and other expressions of bigotry after freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar again sparked controversy with comments implying supporters of Israel displayed dual loyalty. Washington Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal, the progressive caucus's leader, did not want Omar's name in the resolution, while a number of Jewish members reportedly pushed to include it.
Of course, Nancy Pelosi was appropriately, but unconvincingly, shocked by the comment, while at the same time defending and criticizing Ms. Omar as a bumbling fool for not being able to predict the hurt her remarks would cause other people. "These words have a history and a cultural impact", the House Speaker told reporters. She ultimately apologized for using an anti-Semitic trope, but stood by her criticism. Anti-Semitism is now accepted by the Democratic Party. They "Hypnotized the world" and "It's all about the Benjamins" Omar had tweeted.
Jewish Insider reported the development on Friday, citing "a source familiar with the plan", who said it is "just a condemnation of anti-Semitism". As I have often written before, what you say in such sensitive matters can matter less than what people hear.
Omar apologized past year for a 2012 tweet in which she said Israel had "hypnotized" America.
When asked why Omar wasn't named in the resolution, Pelosi said because "It's not about her". Both remarks were condemned for employing antisemitic tropes, including by some who do not shy away from criticising Israel when the occasion demands. Of course not, but that is not what Omar did, and not what she got into trouble for doing. The bill was introduced as Democrats grappled with how to respond to what pro-Israel lawmakers have considered anti-Semitic sentiments expressed by Rep.
Omar and AOC have gotten a lot of attention, but their extreme views do not actually represent the majority of the freshman Democrat class and do not reflect the views of Democrat voters, according to a recent poll.
Daou said a political double standard was at play, pointing to a recent tweet from Republican Representative Jim Jordan, what used a dollar sign for a letter in the name of Democratic donor Tom Steyer, who is Jewish. Instead, the focus had now also been drawn to the 23 GOP "no" votes. And with this power, she chose to place a doltish hater of Jews, someone with radical positions and absolutely no relevant experience, on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to appease the growing anti-Israel contingent in her party.
