Are the Democrats starting to feel any remorse for their boosting of this vicious Jew-hater? They might have thought it would all be over and done with when Omar issued her fake and insincere “apology” for her earlier anti-Semitic remarks. But Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran; she isn’t going to give it up. Expect more and more anti-Semitic remarks from her, and expect her Democrat critics to go silent. They have cast their lot with her.
“Omar feuds with fellow Democrat over support of Israel,” by Chris Mills Rodrigo, The Hill, March 3, 2019:
Lowey tweeted Saturday that Omar has a tendency to “mischaracterize” support for Israel from American lawmakers.
“Lawmakers must be able to debate w/o prejudice or bigotry,” she wrote. “I am saddened that Rep. Omar continues to mischaracterize support for Israel. I urge her to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community on why these comments are so hurtful.”
Omar responded to Lowey saying that she is simply trying to question the foundation of American relations with Israel.
“Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!” the first-year Rep. tweeted.
“I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”
Omar continued to argue that she finds it problematic that she is called anti-American if she is not pro-Israel.
“Being opposed to Netanyahu and the occupation is not the same as being anti-Semitic,” she added. “I am grateful to the many Jewish allies who have spoken out and said the same.”
Lowey responded on Sunday, saying that no lawmaker is forced to swear allegiance to another country, but that accusations of “dual loyalty” are dangerous.
“No member of Congress is asked to swear allegiance to another country,” she tweeted. “Throughout history, Jews have been accused of dual loyalty, leading to discrimination and violence, which is why these accusations are so hurtful.”
Lowey initially tweeted in response comments Omar made this week about the impact of special interest groups on foreign policy, specifically related to Israel.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” she said during an event at a Washington bookstore, according to The New York Times.
She went on to question why it was acceptable for her to criticize the influence of the NRA, fossil fuel industries and other special interest groups but not the American Israel Public Affairs Committee….
