Rep. Ilhan Omar will keep her position on the House Foreign Affairs Committee despite demands that she step down for making remarks considered anti-Semitic.

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx), the committee chairman, issued a statement Tuesday night saying that booting her “will not solve the problem of anti-Semitism” and would merely be “retribution.”

Eleven Jewish organizations sent a letter to Engel and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asking that Omar be removed from the committee, as have some Republicans.

  1. (Tea Party PAC) – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) refuses to back away from her open antisemitism, doubling-down this weekend on her claim that Americans who are pro-Israel have “allegiance to a foreign country” by repeating the claim on Twitter and ignoring calls from fellow Democrats to apologize.
    This time around, even liberals slammed her for the remarks.
    On Friday, House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) called her remarks a “vile anti-Semitic slur,” insisting “that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”
    Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) said that she was “saddened” on Twitter Saturday, that Omar “continues to mischaracterize support for Israel.” She urged her colleague “to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community.”

  2. YES, JUST KEEP THE TROJEN HORSE IN THE UNITED STAES LAWMAKING BODY….REMEMBER ‘DIHMINI’ THESE ARE NOT LOAL US LOVING LOYAL CITIZENS

  3. A lip-service pro forma condemnation with zero consequences to the repeat offender?
    Yeah, that’ll show her! I’m sure she’s trembling in a corner somewhere.

  4. yet when a religious councilman named diaz said toeiva people control the city council they took apart his committee.

  5. Democrats always circle the wagon for one of their own. It’s only those evil white racist Republicans that must resign immediately upon a talking head on msnbc declaring them insensitive.

  6. What else is new? If this was a republican (or even a Democrat) saying similar stuff about non whites (blacks, Indians, Hispanic including illegals and of course the poor Muslims) or toeva people guess what would happen to that congressman??? That’s right-FORCED RESIGNATION AND NOTHING LESS!!
