US Democrats rocked by anti-Semitism row as Muslim congresswoman apologises

"It's stunning how much time U.S. political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans".

"It's all about the Benjamins baby", Omar wrote.

Meanwhile Omar, the congresswoman for Minnesota, said she is working to bring some balance to the United States position, which now gives priority to Israel.

The backlash was swift.

Omar's office did not immediately return a call and email from Yahoo News seeking comment.

The chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep.

"Anti-Semitism in any form is unacceptable, and it's shocking to hear a Member of Congress invoke the anti-Semitic trope of "Jewish money.' I fully expect that when we disagree on the Foreign Affairs Committee, we will debate policy on the merits and never question members" motives or resort to personal attacks".

As of Monday afternoon, Omar had not deleted the "Benjamins" tweet or released an official statement on the controversy.

In fact, Omar's response was immediate "AIPAC".

She did respond to a tweet from Clinton, saying she'd be "happy to talk".

Max Rose, who won a tight race in NY, said the Democratic Party and the USA should be a place where "we celebrate the diversity of our people".

In it, he said he's pro-Trump because he supports his refugee ban, and said it doesn't mean he's against the LGBT community. She and Trump want to "secure" the southern border (and not the northern border ) because of who it will keep out.

Omar has drawn criticism from tweets she posted regarding Israel.

Critics of the tweet included many Republican members of Congress, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and former ambassador to Israel under President Barack Obama Daniel B. Shapiro. He has insisted that "the overwhelming majority of the House Democratic Caucus is strongly pro-Israel".

The Minnesota DFL Party declined to comment on the tweets.

The lawmaker said he doesn't "believe she would harbor those sorts of views as they've been characterized". Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Generally speaking, Americans tend to be pro-Israel thanks to acute and widespread awareness of the Holocaust and of Jewish statelessness as one of the principal reasons the Holocaust occurred (you could contrast this, by the way, with the average Americans very limited awareness of Palestinian history).

Omar is also one of the few Congresspersons who support the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to strangle Israel by pressuring countries and companies to stop doing business with the Middle Eastern country.

Last month, Omar expressed regret for saying in a 2012 tweet that Israel "has hypnotized the world" while carrying out "evil".

"Rep. Omar's use of an anti-Semitic stereotype was offensive and irresponsible".

"We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments", the statement read.

"The leaders" statement came in the hours after a pair of powerful House chairman rebuked Omar for the remarks. "I'm going to support Israel and the Jewish people".

"At the same time", she wrote, "I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee], the [National Rifle Association] or the fossil fuel industry". Some even called for her to be removed from her committees, just as Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) was for his racist comments.
