BRUTAL: Jewish Democrat Rep. Engel Lashes Out at Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar
Anti-Semitic Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was back in the news this week for a new batch of anti-Jew remarks.
The Muslim Democrat from Minnesota revived an old trope about divided loyalties among Jewish-Americans when she criticized the idea that it’s “OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
Jewish Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) lashed out at Omar Friday in a statement.
“Her comments were outrageous and deeply hurtful, and I ask that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issue without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”

Please stop framing Ilhan Omar's comments as though she's bumbling into traps. She's an antisemite. And anytime she's called out, she follows up with *more explicit* antisemitism.
If you don't want to be accused of excusing antisemitism for partisan reasons, then don't do so.

And yet despite the continued anti-Semitism the media continues to prop up this radical Muslim Democrat.
