"Our community is exasperated by Rep. Omar's unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from Jewish constituents while seemingly simultaneously finding another opportunity to make an anti-Semitic remark and insult our community", the head of a major Jewish group in Minnesota - who was among the Jewish leaders who met with Omar to help her understand why her "dual loyalty" comments were hurtful, inappropriate, and downright scandalous, toldThe Hill.
Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over comments she made that some construed as anti-Semitic.
The thread stated, "This is a serious question: Do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the State of Israel?"
"I welcome debate in Congress based on the merits of policy, but it's unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow American citizens due to their political views, including support for the US-Israel relationship", Engel said in the statement. "There's definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her", said Democratic state Sen.
Last week, the House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution sparked in large part by Omar's recent suggestions that Israel supporters want USA lawmakers to pledge "allegiance" to the Jewish state - which was widely condemned as echoing the age-old "dual loyalties" smear against Jewish politicians. Back in 2012 she tweeted that Israel has "hypnotized the world".
It is a tall task to unseat Omar, however, considering only two House members from Minnesota have ever lost primaries. Republicans have pushed to have her removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, but Engel has not asked Democratic leadership to take that step. However, Democrats decided not to name Omar personally in the language of the resolution, which several Republicans opposed as a "watered-down, half-hearted effort", Fox News reports.
Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Massachusetts' Elizabeth Warren also posed similar concerns, with Harris expressing her worry "that the spotlight being put on (Omar) may put her at risk".
