Donald Trump calls Democrats 'an anti-Jewish' party

Rep. Ilhan Omar apologized for anti Semitic twitter tropes only to continue using them

The resolution passed 407-23 in the US House of Representatives, with Omar's support. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota show "the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party" and an "anti-Jewish party". The no votes were all Republicans who objected to Rep Nancy Pelosi throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, into the resolution.

Pew Research Center says that among Jewish voters in the 2018 midterms, 79 per cent supported Democratic candidates. Over the years, I and many political cartoonists have done critical cartoons on Israel, Palestinians and their leaders.

After freshman Rep. Omar accused pro-Israel lawmakers of pushing "for allegiance to a foreign country" in a tweet, several prominent Democrats pushed back against Omar, pointing out she appeared to be playing into decades-old anti-Semitic stereotypes about American Jews' "dual loyalty" to Israel. But the leaders regrouped.

"I voted for it because you shouldn't hate people, period, end of story", Hurd said on CNN's "State of the Union".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she did not believe Omar's remarks were meant to be anti-Semitic.

Trump later said her comments were "terrible" and amounted to "a dark day for Israel" before adding that Jewish groups were trying to get her withdrawn from the Foreign Relations Committee. It condemns anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities "as hateful expressions of intolerance". The vote was delayed for a time on Thursday to include mention of Latinos to address concerns of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

An earlier version focused more narrowly on anti-Semitism. The decree mentions Alfred Dreyfus, Leo Frank, Henry Ford and "anti-Muslim bigotry" - because hey, even when Jews are being smeared, it's about Islamophobia - but not once does it condemn Omar or the strain of hatred she is helping normalize on the left.

Eagles trading DE Bennett to Pats
During an appearance on NFL Network's Good Morning Football , Bennett said that he wants a pay raise for the 2019 season. Bennett played well against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX and his brother, Martellus, played with New England before.

It is unclear if the Cruz resolution, unlike the House version, will call out Omar or any members of Congress explicitly. He called the measure the most powerful anti-Semitism resolution "in the history of the United States Congress" and argued that those who opposed it were wrong to do so. However, criticizing Israel using anti-Semitic tropes is inappropriate and should be condemned.

Other Democratic presidential contenders tried to walk a similar line. "I think it strengthened it", she said at an event sponsored by the Economic Club of Washington, DC.

A statement from Sen. Omar, a Somali refugee who resettled in Minnesota, had sparked fiery debate with her repeated criticisms of Israel and how a powerful pro-Israel lobby in Washington exerts influence on U.S. politicians.

In August 2017, Pelosi said that Trump's post-Charlottesville press conference "made plain that the original statement he gave on Saturday is what he really believes".

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY said, "Everyone is entitled to their opinion, they are allowed to have free speech in this country", Gillibrand said. If Omar's moral compass tells her to advocate for terrorists and theocrats, she's free to do so.

She continued: "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress".

But Omar's rhetoric is taking Democrats to a place that leaves many uneasy.
