(California) and other leading democratic leaders have elaborated a resolution that is expected to be voted on Wednesday to condemn anti-Semitism following Omar's recent remarks, suggesting that Israeli groups "follow a loyalty to a foreign country".
Democrats do not show signs of Omar being removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite being called by Republicans and some conservative representatives of the Israeli people. This would probably cause the withdrawal of the progressive, including allies, as rookie recruits.

However, Omar's comments shared them, and Democratic leaders hope that the matter will be voted on.
Omar and Tlaib are the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
Omar told an event at a bookstore and restaurant in Washington last week that anti-Semitic critics tried to silence the debate.
"I want to talk about the country's political influence, which says that it is okay for people to seek loyalty abroad," Omar said.
Instead, the Liberals sought to draw attention to the debates on Islamophobia in the West Virginia State House, where a poster on the display broke out, attacking the attacks of 11 September 2001 between Omar and terrorists.
"I am very frightened not to say more about this sophisticated and brilliant expression that the party and Islamophobia produce with a citizen," Ocasio-Cortez said. "[In my opinion,] those who rose a few weeks ago against anti-Semitism should also call Islamophobia.
Olai's defense is Tlaib, a progressive firebrand who critically spoke the criticism of Israel in the GOP. He claimed that Omar should not be accused of anti-Semitism for relations between the United States and Israel and for the treatment of Palestinians.
"[Omar’s] the force inspires me and so much. It is like the many civil law icons before us about repressive policies. When he raised Sity and other Palestinians in the name of truth and peace, he showed us real courage, ”Tlaib added.
A copy of the text of The Hill's resolution does not refer specifically to Omar's comments. He states that "the accusations of" double loyalty are usually mysterious in high-profile history "and declares that the House" recognizes the dangerous consequences of the survival of anti-Semitic stereotypes "and" rejects anti-Semitism as hostile controversial hate expressions ". values defining the people of the United States. "
The vote on the resolution would be the second time within three weeks when the House voted against anti-Semitism because of Omar.
Last month, Omar apologized for suggesting that US lawmakers who defend Israel are motivated by money and wrote on Twitter that "it is all about Benjamin's baby."

(D-N.Y.) Apologize. Engel and Lowey are Jewish.
"I wouldn't expect a foreign country to have a loyalty / promise to serve my country in Congress or serve in the committee," replied Omar Lowey, who called for comments.
"Every day I told you I was American if I wasn't against Israel." I find this problematic and I'm not alone. I just want to be willing to talk about it and open myself to the attacks, ”Omar said.
Engel made a statement on Friday, accusing Omar of "vile antisemitic monster".
"His comments were outrageous and very painful, and I ask you to withdraw them, apologize, and undertake to deal with political issues without following attacks that have no place in the Committee on Foreign Affairs or in the Assembly," Engel said in a statement .
Engel, like many House Democrats, has long supported Israel.
However, Engel faces a tricky balancing act when expressing his disagreement with Omar while facing the risk of a primary challenge.
Engel is the Truth Democrats, the organization that helped coordinate the shocking defeat of Ocasio-Cortez last year, the former airport, Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), Since it has long been a primary challenge facing some liberals.
The staff of the Supreme Democrats began working on a resolution on a weekend, according to an older democratic assistant. Anti-Defamation League (ADL) pressured Pelosi on Monday to call for the rejection of Omar's "last slur".
"The accusation of Jews with loyalty to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has long been an unusual anti-Semitic monster that has been harassed, marginalized and persecuted for centuries," said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, National Director. "We encourage you and your colleagues to send out a clear message that the US Congress is not hating."
House GOP leaders, including the minority leader Kevin McCarthyKevin Owen McCarthyHouse Demonstration of Democrats Trump McCarthy contradicts Trump at Warmbier: "I think Kim knew what happened" McCarthy rejects Democrat plans: "Show if the president should do anything to be condemned" MORE (California) objected to the appointment of Omar to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the beginning of January. Omar's tweets were quoted in the middle of the Gaza war in 2012, stating that "Israel hypnotized the world, Allah awakens people, and help them see Israel's evil deeds".
Omar later regretted the chattering, written in January, "it is now clear to me that I have spent a lot of energy in the context of my 2012 pinch and little energy to neglect the ignorantly used anti-Semitic tropical, which is unfortunate and offensive. "
The Republicans forced the vote to condemn anti-Semitism in the last month, making it difficult for the Democrat to resist. But the GOP assistants said on Monday that there are no further legislative plans at this point.
The timing of the vote on the resolution provides the Republicans, who would have forced another vote to register the democracies on Omar's comments, to the rankings and to the Democrats.
However, the GOP leaders rejected the resolution because they are not far enough.
"Decisions are good and good, but Pelosi's speaker is clearly afraid to stand up to Omar if he continues to reward him with the plague spot on the Committee on Foreign Affairs," tweeted House Minority Whip Steve ScaliseStephen (Steve) Joseph ScaliseHouse passes the bill that extends the arms control background checks.
