Will anti-Semitism divide Democrats? It already has

ALEXANDRIA VA- APRIL 27 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks during an event at Northern Virginia Community College

"So what we're seeing is a smear campaign that's not only racist and Islamophobic... and it's not only coming from Republican Party... but also from the establishment inside the Democratic Party", he added.

"We only wish the president had learned from this resolution, which defines anti-Semitism to include anti-Semitic tropes and conspiracy theories that he has repeatedly invoked himself", Soifer wrote.

With many Democrats joining Republicans in condemning Omar's problematic remarks, House Democratic leaders turned to a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. For days, Democrats wrestled with whether or how to punish the Minnesota lawmaker, arguing over whether Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, should be singled out, what other types of bias should be decried in the text and whether the party would tolerate dissenting views on Israel.

Trump went on to say that "the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party". One side wanted a stronger repudiation of Omar.

Alice Stewart, a GOP communications consultant, insisted that Rep. Omar knew what she was saying is anti-Semitic and that she's "sick and tired" of Democrats defending her - but Cardona hit back. "I find that to be problematic and I am not alone", Omar tweeted.

After voting against the sweeping resolution that stemmed from continued controversial comments on Israel from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Zeldin slammed the legislation in a radio interview on Sunday morning due to the fact that it failed to specifically address Omar's remarks, which were deemed anti-semitic by many.

Last month, for example, she tweeted that support for Israel by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee was "all about the Benjamins baby", a hip-hop catchphrase for the power of money.

Jewish Insider reported the development on Friday, citing "a source familiar with the plan", who said it is "just a condemnation of anti-Semitism". Of note, the pro-Israel group does not make donations to political candidates. He's a supporter of Israel but a robust critic of AIPAC as "a rubber stamp on the right-wing policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu" that, unfortunately, has helped turn support for Israel into a partisan Republican cause. "You want to control your own politician". "And so this resolution ended up really being an effort to protect her". That may excite a crowd that already agrees with her, but it's a poor way to persuade people to understand her point of view.
