Democrats upset over Omar seeking primary challenger

We stand here to remind Speaker Pelosi of words that she has spoken many times in the past - that USA support for Israel is not only a matter of mutual interest and shared values, but that American support of a homeland for the Jewish people is a moral imperative - a historical calling that should not be polluted with accusations of dual loyalty or greed.

"In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive", Belén Sisa, Sanders' incoming deputy press secretary for Latino outreach, said in a statement.

Some Minnesota Democrats have begun looking to recruit someone to mount a primary challenge against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., after her comments about Israel and AIPAC, The Hill reports.

The spokeswoman for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. "They're more than willing to pose with Omar on magazine covers, but when she tried to talk about a truly hard topic, which is her job as an elected official, and her life was in danger, they kind of threw her under the bus". Bernie Sanders apologized for a Facebook post in which she suggested that American Jews have a dual loyalty to Israel.

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?"

Rohit Raval, Rajkot Special Operations Group police inspector, said their phones had been seized as part of the investigation. Conviction under Section 188 carries either a maximum prison sentence of one month, a 200 rupee fine (roughly $3), or both.

Last week, the House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution sparked in large part by Omar's recent suggestions that Israel supporters want US lawmakers to pledge "allegiance" to the Jewish state - which was widely condemned as echoing the age-old "dual loyalties" smear against Jewish politicians.

Omar, over the course of a few weeks of being confronted over several statements, has apologized and defended herself.

Minnesota Democrats are seriously considering challenging their Representative Ilhan Omar in the 2020 election over her recent anti-Jewish remarks.

But she's also continued to employ controversial rhetoric when discussing Israel, American foreign policy and lobbying. Republicans have pushed to have her removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, but Engel has not asked Democratic leadership to take that step. The segment devolved into a series of whataboutisms as Bee attempted to paint Trump - whose own daughter and grandchildren are Jewish, and who moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem - as anti-Semitic for comments he made while speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition in 2015. But Hunegs said Omar didn't care.
