Dem Lawmakers Meet; Ilhan Omar refused to affirm Israel's right to exit.

Another growing divide within the Democrat Party is the division between anti-Semitic Far Left supporters of Palestine and Jewish Democrat Lawmakers.

(snip)

" In the wake of anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and several closed-door conferences by Democrats to discuss related issues within the party, Rep. Andy Levin (D., Mich.), a former synagogue president, organized a meeting as "a more formal event that would focus on anti-Semitism." The March 5 meeting of Muslim and Jewish lawmakers was a "moment meant to be about listening and learning" about the "raw experiences" of the elected officials, according to the Post.

Levin invited Omar and her allies Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) to attend.v "

To help manage the conversation, which was previously unreported, Levin invited Bend the Arc, a left-wing organization deeply critical of Israel and Republicans. In a recent tweet, the group called for Americans to "reject the Islamophobic policies our government is built on."

When a Bend the Arc organizer in the room made a joke "about Jews and money," Rep. Jahana Hayes (D., Conn.) questioned why the facilitator could talk like that when someone like Hayes could not. She later told the Post no one should be making comments of the sort.

"It’s not okay," Hayes said when asked about the specific exchange. "These [sorts of jokes] are off-limits. It’s confusing for someone like me who is trying to learn."

It took nearly two hours before a Democrat brought up the repeated anti-Semitism of Omar, the impetus for the entire conversation. The congresswoman, a member of the Progressive Caucus, has drawn scrutiny and condemnation since taking office in January for a series of anti-Semitic remarks.

Rep. Dean Phillips (D., Minn.), a Jew who represents a district neighboring Omar's, told the room he considered her comments to be "tips of the arrow" of Jew hatred in America. According to "several participants" who spoke to the Post on the condition of anonymity, Phillips asked Omar to apologize and "publicly affirm Israel’s right to exist and protect itself."

Phillips's request that Omar support the right of Jews to exist in the Jewish state and in the United States "stunned the three Muslim Democrats in the room."

Omar did not reply to the Jewish member's request. Instead, one of her allies responded by changing the subject to the Palestinians. Tlaib "grew emotional and started to cry as she spoke of her grandmother’s suffering in the West Bank at the hands of Israelis," according to the Post.

Tlaib has faced scrutiny for ties to anti-Semitism and for anti-Semitic comments of her own. In January, she accused senators supporting pro-Israel policies of acting as if they "represent" a country other than the United States. Maher Abdel-qader, one of Tlaib's top campaign volunteers and fundraisers, promotes anti-Semitic conspiracies.

I have to respectfully disagree with you, my friend.  We need to differentiate between Islamists and Muslims, who may be our doctor, nurse or many other Americans in our communities.  (there are so many who are healthcare professionals).  Muslims know that it is dangerous for them to speak out against the Islamist who are making all the noise and all the trouble.  It's worse than being a black woman promoting Blexit! We ought not fall into the trap of seeing all Muslims as MUSCUM; only the Islamists like Ilhan Ohmar and Rashida Tlaib and their frineds in CAIR and The Muslim Brothrhood and HAMAS and Hezbollah.

Could anyone post up links to the anti semitic comments made by this woman?

We have a lot of accusation on both sides of the Atlantic against left wing politicians,  and as yet I have not been able to get anybody to give me any evidence of anti semitic speech.


Thanks.

I'm NOT talking about Muslim health care professionals either.  Roll Eyes

I'm talking about the average Muslim, .. and THAT makes up the vast MAJORITY of them.  Cool

That's why immigration has to be merit based and individuals have to be properly vetted and with Muslims they must not be those who promote and advocate Sharia Law, which is incompatible with our liberties and our Constitution.

Nope.

But that won't stop the narrative.
