Bill Maher thinks Ilhan Omar 'might be' anti-Semitic

Bill Maher thinks Ilhan Omar 'might be' anti-Semitic”

"While we commend Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to bring to the floor the issue of anti-Semitism within its ranks, the politically expedient resolution failed to call out Representative Omar by name and failed to take into account the historically unique dimensions of the anti-Semitic themes trafficked by Rep. Omar", the Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement shortly following the vote. "It's part of our values that we convey to the rest of the world".

Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) excoriated House Democrats for failing to put forward a resolution focused exclusively on condemning anti-Semitism in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D., Minn.) remarks accusing Israel's supporters of having dual allegiance.

A Muslim American congresswoman's remarks deemed anti-Semitic by some colleagues has exposed deep fault lines among Democrats, with the party seeking to contain the damage with passage Thursday of a measure condemning bigotry and hate. "They have become an anti-Jewish party, and that's too bad".

Trump comments were also criticized by the Jewish Democratic Council of America.

A vote had been expected on a resolution specifically condemning anti-Semitism.

Trump had earlier told reporters that a recent US House of Representatives vote condemning bigotry, which had originally been meant to condemn anti-Semitism but became a broader anti-hate measure, "was disgraceful".

"For the president, who when neo-Nazis marched in Charlottesville in front of a synagogue and said "Burn it down" and he said "both sides" are to blame, this is a new divisive low", Schumer wrote in a Facebook post. "This isn't political. It's life and death".

Democratic House leaders hope to move on to the scandal around Omar, who in three months has prompted three major waves of condemnation for her comments on Israel.

Since taking office, Omar has questioned whether support for Israel in Congress is "all about the Benjamins" and has compared Israel advocacy organizations to the pharmaceutical, fossil fuel and gun lobbies.

Friedman said that while Omar had the opportunity to "build bridges" between the Jewish and Somali-Muslims who reside in her district, she squandered that opportunity by repeatedly pushing forth antisemitic tropes.
