to support Israel?

If the answer is, NO, then she needs to not be on the committee - If she's right then, others have a problem.

Both sides saying that she is incorrect. She’s an Islamic antisemite. She admits she lied now.

So are you man enough to stick by your support of removing her from the Foreign Affairs committee?
I doubt it.

for you?

Omar questioned the financial relationship between AIPAC, the powerful pro-Israel lobby, and members of Congress in tweets over the weekend. In her apology, Omar added that she still believes there is a "problematic role" for lobbyists, whether it's AIPAC or the NRA.

Yet again. No, she is wrong in what she is saying, and everyone but her has acknowledged it.

She accused a specific Israeli lobby group of paying lawmakers, and they have never done.

She did this because she is an Islamic anti Semite. She has now apologized and several days later, after much unexpected pressure from both sides, she has tried to pretend she was speaking generically about lobbyists in general paying lawmakers even though she specifically mentioned he Jewish group by name and even though she has no other examples of anyone else doing so.

anti-Semitic, but simply pointing out that politicians are supporting Israel only because they are bought and paid for by Jews. In other words, if we can criticize oil money or Green Energy money, we can criticize Jewish money. This defense has a serious following in the Democratic Party, as if money is the only reason to support Israel (a Democracy in the ME).

Do you remember all of the hatred poured on Donald Trump at the beginning of his presidency for allegedly sparking a rise in anti-Semitic attacks? Some on this Board were quick to blame Trump for them, but they seem to have gone quiet lately.
