Democratic Majority Leader Blasts Omar for Anti-Semitic Remarks, Defends US-Israel Alliance

Chuck Schumer Equates Ilhan Omar with Trump in Godawful

Protesters rally outside event where Omar speaks

But the broad anti-Semitism allegations against Democrats, while unfounded, are giving Republicans an opportunity to call attention to the widening divide in the Democratic Party over United States policy toward Israel.

According to the Los Angeles Daily News, more than 1,000 people protested outside the event, waved American and Israeli flags, and accused Omar of anti-Semitism.

The resolution does not mention Omar by name. "There are 62 freshman Democrats", he said, and cocked his ear.

Vice President Mike Pence used his speech at the annual convention of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, on Monday morning to sharply criticize Democrats he charged with being insufficiently loyal to the Jewish state.

Omar last month started a debate that his split the party when she said she felt pressure to pledge "allegiance" to Israel. "I want to ask why is it OK for me to talk about the influence of the NRA (National Rifle Association), of fossil fuel industries or Big Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobbying group that is influencing policies?"

Addressing the USA pro-Israel lobby AIPAC, Pompeo denounced a rise in anti-Semitism around Europe, the Middle East and in the United States but had especially strong words about Britain. Omar said opposing the policies of Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not synonymous with anti-Semitism.

"We all kind of knew that this was happening", she said. She previously said that AIPAC purchased support in Congress through campaign donations. I tell Israel's detractors: "Accuse us".

The entire Democratic - or "Democrat", as Pence put it, using the ungrammatical truncation that has become popular on the right - Party also came under assault from Pence, who has proved himself to be a reliable messenger for President Trump.

Democrats had been divided over how best to handle Omar's comments.

Hoyer, the second-ranking Democrat in the House, explained that he is not Jewish and neither are the majority of his constituents, but that he has traveled to Israel multiple times and witnessed firsthand "the courage of its people and their enduring spirit to make their country flourish".
