It is not quiet to Ilhan Omar. And that seems to be the 37-year-old Democrat from Minnesota, who was elected in November as one of the two first Muslim in the U.S. Congress, to be all right. Because it is it that sets the debate time and time again.
your Twitter Comments in February, the Israel-friendly stance in the US going back on a donation of a Pro-Israeli lobby group, sound in the ears of many to the well-known anti-Semitic stereotypes, à la: With a lot of money to the powerful Jewish Lobby buying the policy. The excitement was great, Omar excused himself with the rather naive words, it is not have been very clear that their words were hurtful.
But shortly thereafter, the deputies and the used is also well-known cliché that Jews outside of Israel have a dual loyalty to their home country. It was a party of friends, with your support of Israel, "a foreign country sworn Allegiance to". This line of reasoning is not a fire hazard, led them in the story, but to hatred of Jews, which wanted the Land in which they live, allegedly, damage. An American Congressman should know. Ilhan Omar is not perceived as a politician who doesn't know what she's doing. Why does it so? Your critics say, because they austeste how far you can go. Because they believe that this strategy in many of the catches.

Apparently, this will catch significantly more Democrats than I thought. The attempt of Nancy Pelosi, the democratic majority leader in the house of representatives, to pacify the conflict with a Resolution against anti-Semitism, failed. The 78-Year-old had underestimated the resistance in your significantly more colorful, younger, and and the dispute, more energetic group. Three of the presidential candidates had been previously on Omar's page: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris, all three representatives of the party's left wing. Came out in the end, only a General Resolution condemning attacks against minorities.

For Republicans, the intra-party squabbles of the Democrats a gift, to distract you from the various negative messages of the past weeks. They demand the withdrawal of the Somalia-born Omar, from the foreign Affairs Committee or your resignation as a member. And US President, Donald Trump declared that the Democrats had become "an anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish party". An accusation that hurts - and the many moderate voters the Democrats could unsettle, not to mention the Jewish voters, who constitute one of the most loyal groups of voters. And it is already in some comments: If the Democrats continue in this way, has Trump his re-election soon in the bag.
