Rep. Ilhan Omar ‘s” anti-Semitic set pieces’ prompt Jewish New York to apologize to the member groups

nearvideo Republicans write a resolution condemning U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar views

U.S. Rep., Max Rose, a Jewish New York Democrat in his first term in Congress, apologized, visibly frustrated constituents at a town hall in Staten Island on Tuesday for not “protection” of other freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar Democrat’s repeated use of “anti-Semitic set pieces.”

Rose’s comments came as Minnesota Democrats are seriously the views of the support of an unprecedented primary challenge against the 37-year-old Omar in the year 2020, the following cross-party condemnation of some of their remarks, the officials and representatives of the state. Earlier this month, the house is a party adopted to condemn cross-resolution, hatred of all kinds, in the Wake of Omar’s comments. But Democrats held Omar’s name from the resolution, which some Republicans opposed as a watered-down, half-hearted effort.


“As a young Congressman, I must tell you, I’m sorry,” Rose said gathered an audience, by the Council of Jewish organizations (COJO), according to a video of the town hall-posted on Facebook by a Jewish Insider, which reported first the comments. “You sent me to Congress to take responsibility. You sent me to Congress to have your back … and I’m not you. Because I know that members of Congress Ilhan Omar’s caused comments really all of you a lot of pain by anti-Semitic set pieces.”

Omar, 37, a Somali-American and one of two Muslim women in the Congress, published on Twitter in 2012 that “Israel, the world, hypnotized may Allah awaken the people and help them, the evil deeds of Israel.” You drew condemnation in February by fellow Democrats, after they hinted that Jewish politicians were bought in the United States.

Omar, again, the flames in the month ignited later, when you proposed, once again, that groups supported by Israel blamed the members of Congress who are “loyal to a foreign country.”

Rose, 32, a U.S. Army veteran of the war in Afghanistan and Purple Heart recipient, denied that his Jewish faith be affected patriotism, and called Omar to the comments of “terrifying” – but he said they should not lose their seat on the powerful house Foreign Relations Committee, a prospective move, he called an unnecessary escalation.” The Republicans, who earlier this year moved to the U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, of his Committee assignments after he made remarks that denied to widely used as a support of white nationalism, although the king of these fees.

“Certainly as a Jewish war veteran, I could tell you, I have no dual loyalty,” Rose said, as a participant pressed him for answers on the Democrats’ response to Omar’s comments. “I have an oath of allegiance to the flag. I have an oath to the United States of America.”

Rose continues: “We have to show that it is a way for you to do the right thing, and we need to be vigilant against. Believe me, she understands that the [removal of your Committee assignments] is a possibility, and the one is, that the the table, but we are not yet there.”

Not adding that “I am not satisfied with what I’ve seen so far, I am,” Rose concluded that he Omar apology accepted anyway. President Trump and top Republicans have signed Omar to say an apology as half-hearted and insincere, that again your anti-Israel repeated comments revealed their true feelings.

“I was horrified and sad, as you said, from the comments,” Rose. “So horrified that as a freshman member of Congress, I stepped in front of my party leadership and I was the first member of the Democratic party they criticize. I wanted to say that I accepted your apology. Do you know why I do that? Because I’m an adult. Because my goal was still the quiet and non-glamorous actions of the coalition-building and trying to protect the people in this room from the comments.”

“I was horrified and sad when she made the comments.”

Other Democrats in the Congress have offered less-than-flattering for defense. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows earlier this month when she told Omar, “do not understand” that some of the words you used are “full of sense.”

Activists and officials interviewed in Minnesota, said recently, while recruiting an alternative candidate to mount against Omar, frustrations.


“There is definitely some buzz going around about it, but it is more of a buzz, ” Is someone to talk to, about the search for someone to be against you?’, as it is, that someone tells you that you are going to against you or consider it,” state Rep. Ron Latz, a Democrat, said Hill. “There are definitely the people to talk to want someone to be against you.”

And Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, told the Washington Post that he was in contact with Jewish community leaders about Omar. He said he supported their campaign, but she called the latest comments “wrong.”

“This is up to Ilhan Omar,” he said. “She has really spoken in a very dangerous way, and it is to her to go to the people, and fix this Problem.”
