Trump blasts ‘anti-Jewish’ Democratic party, brands House resolution ‘disgraceful’

Their famously fractious party has become even more deeply divided between its center-left establishment and its new generation of far-left progressives.

"We only wish the president had learned from this resolution, which defines anti-Semitism to include anti-Semitic tropes and conspiracy theories that he has repeatedly invoked himself", Soifer wrote.

Women's March co-founder Linda Sarsour explained Friday how she and other left-wing organizers influenced the final language of the "anti-hate" resolution that passed the House Thursday night. "So, many of you know that our sister Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was under attack", Sarsour said.

Republicans seized on Omar's comments and demanded censure, pointing to the punishment meted out to Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, after he questioned why the terms white supremacist and white nationalist were offensive.

"The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party", he said. One only hopes Omar, Duke and Farrakhan meet privately so no one else has to see or hear any of them ever again.

Minister Philpott seemed excited by the challenge, but expressed concern that Wilson-Raybauld would see her shuffle as a demotion. Jody Wilson-Raybould told a shocking story in her appearance at the federal justice committee last week.

I, too, was upset by Omar's remarks.

After voting against the sweeping resolution that stemmed from continued controversial comments on Israel from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Zeldin slammed the legislation in a radio interview on Sunday morning due to the fact that it failed to specifically address Omar's remarks, which were deemed anti-semitic by many.

Trump later said her comments were "terrible" and amounted to "a dark day for Israel" before adding that Jewish groups were trying to get her withdrawn from the Foreign Relations Committee. That comment came after Omar apologized in mid-February for writing in a now-deleted tweet that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) influence on US politics was "all about the Benjamins, baby". Pro-Israel organizations and politicians have countered with tough responses. Under pressure from Pelosi and other party leaders, she apologized, but reaffirmed "the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, the NRA or the fossil fuel industry". She sounded a lot like New York Times foreign policy expert Tom Friedman, who coincidentally grew up in Omar's district. "You want to control your own politician".

According to Sarsour on Friday, she and her fellow organizers worked behind the scenes to change the original intent of the non-binding resolution by the end of the week.
