Jewish activists critical of the Democratic response to the anti-Semitism roiling the party organized a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy Pelosis office Thursday.
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was accused recently of espousing anti-Semitic views while trying to criticize Israel. In particular, she questioned if some members of Congress have a dual loyalty to the United States and Israel. (RELATED: Omars Experiences Are More Personal Than Children Of Holocaust Survivors)
The House decided to vote on a resolution last week to condemn anti-Semitism in response to Omars comments.
After deliberation, the text of the resolution was expanded to condemn bigotry against African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community, immigrants and others, without specifically naming Omar.

National Conference on Jewish Affairs (NCJA) spokesman Rabbi Aryeh Spero led the sit-in in Pelosis office.
Omar should be censured, Spero said, according to CBN News, adding that she should be removed from the powerful and influential House Foreign Affairs Committee that Speaker Pelosi surprisingly granted to this first-year legislator.
Omars thinking, her conduct, and her blithe willingness to inject anti-Semitic tropes into the legislative process make her unfit to hold such a strategic position, he continued.
The rabbi echoed the message some Republicans gave in response to Omars comments about Israel. Republican Reps. Lee Zeldin of New York, Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Steve Scalice of Louisiana and Guy Reschenthaler of Pennsylvania all called for her to be stripped of her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, who is Jewish, said he was against her removal during an interview last week.
BIG ASS protest before they line up to vote for her and every other Democrat again. Count on it.
Did they smite Pelosi and her staff on their necks?
I heard this was today’s plan. I’m glad they went through with it. People are noticing Nancy’s tolerance of the three new Jew-Hating Congresswomen. She looked weak allowing that resolution to become so watered down and generic.
Its funny how two of the most loyal groups to demon cats have always been Jews and blacks
Neither of which is served at all by this party of lynchings KKK Jim Crow and virulent anti-Semitism
Our great and wonderful president Donald J Trump actually has multiple Jewish relatives
Hes employed probably tens of thousands of black people Hispanics gays and every other kind of minority that the Democrats could ever invented
So if you listen to that speech at CPAC the gig is up
Muellers over it is packing up shop
Schiff needs some new panties
And so on
Well, this crop of new Dem representatives are just not the right Dem representatives. Anyone who thinks Jews will become Republicans over this is foolish at best.
Nancy Pelosi got rolled by the 3 Muslim women.
Worse yet, everyone in the Democrat House knew about it because those 3 openly celebrated!
That watered-down meaningless resolution was nothing but a joke! That Somalian-Moslem, Jew-hating Omar is more emboldened than ever!
Won’t do any good. The dems have chosen to favor m*slims, who hate and kill Jews, in order to get m*slim votes and money.
ABSOLUTELY!!-If they REALLY want to ‘protest’-why don’t the choke-off their money to the DNC and two-face creeps like Nancy?
