House Democrats are again considering a new resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to Ilhan Omar, D-Minn's recent remarks, that the party and leading members of Jewish groups are playing anti-Semitic tropics. The House Democrat Assistant said the vote could take place on Wednesday.
Omar's spokesman did not respond to the comment on the resolution.
The fight against democracies has largely been on the social media, but this time the Minnesota Democrat is back against his colleagues who say he has to apologize and change his voice.
Recent contradictions follow the following remarks: Omar on Wednesday, Busboys and Poets, a political-minded cafe and restaurant chain in Washington DC, which was held by Omar and progressive Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. The duo is the first Muslim women to serve in Congress. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash. Mark Pocan, D-Wis, also attended the town hall.
"I want to talk about the political influence of the country, which says that it is a good thing to devote to a foreign country," Omar said at the event. The statement provoked an angry response from leading Democrats and Jewish groups.
Eliot Engel, the D-N.Y. Engel does not ask for Omar to be removed from his panel, as some House Republicans have done.
Criticism of Omar's remarks in the policy chairman of the policy, Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.
Omar replied to Lowey on Twitter saying "you don't have to expect a loyalty / lien to a foreign country to serve my country in Congress or serve in the committee." The fifth man has chosen me for my interest. "
"I have not mistaken our relationship with Israel, I questioned it, and it has been clear since the end," he added.
Our democracies are based on debate, congress! I can't count on loyal / pledge support for a foreign country to serve my country in Congress or serve in a committee. The fifth man has chosen me for my interest. I'm sure we agree with this! https://t.co/gglAS4FVJW

On Monday, Jonathan Greenblatt, head of Anti-Defamation League, wrote a letter to President Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, Omar's latest remarks, and asked for another parliamentary resolution to condemn anti-Semitism.
"The accusation of Jews with loyalty to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has long been an unusual anti-Semitic slurry that has been harassed, marginalized and persecuted for centuries," wrote Greenblatt.
This month, the House voted 424-0 on the Republican movement to condemn anti-Semitism following a debate on Omar's tweets, which suggested that legislators only support Israel for Jewish lobby influence and money. Omar apologized for tweets. He and his supporters claim to criticize the United States and Israel's foreign policies, not the Jewish people or their beliefs, but his rhetoric ignited the Caucasian counterparts of democracy and gave political ammunition to the opponents of the GOP.
The latest contradiction occurs when Omar was the subject of an Islamophobic attack in the West Virginia State House, where a poster was present for a Republican party event linking Congress to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The state party and the leaders of the GOP State House condemned the signal. "The West Virginia Republic Party does not approve, obey, or support hate speech," said Melody Potter, President of the State Party. statement. "One of our exhibitors at the West Virginia Republic Party Day showed a sign at Capitol that we were not allowed, we didn't know it before the start of the day, and we don't support it."
