Speaker Pelosi could have endorsed Omar’s much more moderate primary opponent Antone Melton-Meaux. She won’t do that. To Speaker Pelosi Jewish lives don’t matter. They never have. That is because no matter how badly the Democrat Party betray’s their Jewish voters, Speaker Pelosi could always count on them for their votes and obscene amounts of money. Shame on any Jewish American who supports the Democrat Party. #EXODUS!
.@USJewishDems @HalieSoifer a simple question- @SpeakerPelosi has chosen to stand with antisemite @IlhanMN – do you stand with them or with the Jewish community. How come you haven't endorsed @Antone_MN ? If you don't be prepared to own it. https://t.co/usyteoFrBo

Pelosi endorses Omar for re-election to Minnesota seat
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes and introduced a resolution in Congress that promotes boycotts of Israel.
By JNS, July 14, 2020
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has endorsed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for re-election in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, announced Omar’s campaign on Monday.
In touting endorsements from Pelosi and Minnesota House of Representatives Speaker Melissa Hortman, Omar’s campaign said in a statement that the congresswoman “now has the support of the Democratic leaders of both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Minnesota legislature, representing the support of the state and national Democratic party at the highest levels.”
Omar has perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter and introduced a resolution in Congress that promotes boycotts of Israel, likening them to boycotts of Nazi Germany.
In February 2019, a month after being sworn in, Omar accused AIPAC of paying members of Congress to back Israel, saying it was “all about the Benjamins.”
The following month, she pointed fingers at her “Jewish colleagues” for attacking her Tlaib for labeling their criticisms as anti-Israel because of the Muslim faith of the two congresswomen, in addition to slamming her critics regarding “the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
This led to the passing of a House resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred that did not call out Omar by name.
In response to Omar’s dual-loyalty accusation, Pelosi said at the time, “I don’t think our colleague is anti-Semitic. I think she has a different experience in the use of words [and] doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning.”
Republican Jewish Coalition executive director Matt Brooks rebuked the endorsement.
