    Full title: Ilhan Omar should be removed from Foreign Affairs Committee: American Islamic Forum for Democracy presidentThe president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy admonished freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar Wednesday morning and blasted Democrats for not doing enough to combat anti-Semitism. “I’m frankly, as an American and as a Muslim, insulted at their resolution because it doesn’t name Ilhan Omar,” Dr. Zuhdi Jasser told Fox News' “America’s Newsroom.” “You listen to [Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.] and he says ‘oh, we’re going to work with her,’ I mean it’s patronizing, they’re infantilizing her.” A House vote on a resolution condemning...

    House Democratic leaders are delaying a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that had been slated to take place on Wednesday, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Tuesday. "We could consider something as early as Thursday," the source told The Hill. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.D.) told Fox News Tuesday evening they were “still drafting” the resolution, but feels it should be "anti-hate." The measure is expected to be updated to include language condemning anti-Muslim bias. The resolution comes in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) most recent controversial comments on Israel. "I want to talk about the political...

    Making herself Louis Farrakhan's "sweetheart" as he put it, Rep. Ilhan Omar isn't going anywhere with the apologies on her third incident of anti-semitism. Farrakhan, you recall, didn't want Omar, whom he called "sweetheart" to apologize for those, and sure enough, she's not apologizing. What I see instead in the miasma of tweets on Twitter, is a bid to deflect attention, with she and her supporters attempting to present the "narrative" of Omar as the "real victim," calling attention to a few bad actors, some anonymous, who've made threats against her and drawn a negative reaction and lawmen looking for...

    House Democrats reportedly will not strip Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) of her committee assignments after she apologized for tweets suggesting that American lawmakers were motivated to defend Israel by money. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told Roll Call that "of course" Democrats would not strip Omar of committee assignments like Republicans did to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa.) after he questioned how terms like "white supremacy" became offensive. “I don’t think she’s anti-Semitic,” Hoyer reportedly said. “She did apologize. The key will be that when we make a mistake like that, conscious or unconscious, that we don’t repeat it. That...

    Minnesota Democrat criticized for anti-Israel statements, BDS supportHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of anti-Israel advocacy. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision, citing Ms. Omar’s 2012 tweet saying that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and was guilty of “evil doings,” as well as her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. “It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a...

    It appears that the leadership of the Democratic Party has gone completely anti-Israel and is warming up to Jew-hatred. The appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee – and the welcome extended to her by the chairman, (former) Israel-supporter Rep. Eliot Engel – confirms that the Democrats' big tent now extends to those who believe that Jews in Israel wield magical power to "hypnotize" non-Jews into acquiescence to their "evil." Omar was triumphant yesterday on her appointment to the plum committee: Ilhan Omar ✔@IlhanMN I finally have committee assignments and I am excited 1st choice- House...
