Omar Blasts Pelosi for Criticizing Her Support of 'Bigoted' Movement

U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar D-Minn. speaks to support LGBTQ and allied high school students from across the state of Minnesota outside the State Capitol in St. Paul

From what could actually be made out through the stuttering satellite feed of Netanyahu's speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), audiences were informed of Israel's "historic right to the occupied Golan Heights" in spite of United Nations condemnations, and the inevitable failure of those who want to undermine support from the US.

"From this Benjamin, it's not about the Benjamins!"

Speaking from Israel via satellite, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "From this Benjamin, it's not about the Benjamins!" The prime minister was making a video call from his home country to a roaring crowd at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, D.C. "To all the anti-Semites out there - we stand up, we fight, and we win", the prime minister said to roaring applause. The reason that the people of America support Israel is not because they want our money, it's because they share our values.

Omar responded to Pelosi following a House Democratic caucus meeting on Tuesday: "A condemnation for people that want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader, and I hope that we find a better use of language when we are trying to speak as members of Congress that are sworn to protect the Constitution".

Senator Bob Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat and senior member of Senate Foreign Relations, warned Republicans against tagging Democrats unfairly as anti-Semitic and he offered a veiled shot at Trump.

Anti-Semitism condemned by House in response to Omar comments.

"There is simply no excuse for unsafe vitriol from any politician that threatens both the safety of Jewish Americans and Israel's core existence", he said. But it wasn't the way this N.J. Democrat had wanted.

"So when someone accuses American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, I say: Accuse me", Hoyer said Sunday.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at the Capitol in Washington, on January 10, 2019.

Several Democrats, including multiple 2020 presidential contenders, decided not to attend AIPAC amid pressure to boycott the conference.

Netanyahu had been due to address AIPAC in person, but returned to Israel on Tuesday, two days ahead of schedule, after a rocket attack from Gaza wounded seven people in a village near Tel Aviv. It's part of our history ... and we shall never, ever give it up. She argued that the Democratic Party addressed this head-on by specifically naming it in their anti-hate resolution.

"I was embarrassed that the last resolution had to be watered down", Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Monday evening. "That pledge is proudly honored in this congress where support for Israel remains ironclad and bipartisan".
