Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, has deleted her controversial tweets that sparked cross-party counter-movement on Capitol Hill.

Washington Examiner Jerry Dunleavy pointed first to the fact that representatives deleted three posts that were viewed by some as anti-Semitic. Fox News has confirmed that the tweets were deleted.

Omar’s Twitter-problems back to 2012, when she claimed that Israel is “mesmerized the world” to the Jewish state, the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians.

The Minnesota Democrat, then accusations of anti-Semitism sparked, as you suggested, that the GOP have bought the support of Israel, say that his attitude is “all about the Benjamins.” You pays later on, the name AIPAC as a group of pro-Israel politicians in spite of the fact that they have no financial contributions to campaigns.

In the midst of turmoil, Omar an apology issued.


“Anti-Semitism is real, and I am grateful for the Jewish allies and colleagues to educate me on the painful history of anti-Semitic set pieces is not My intention to offend never, in my constituency, or Jewish Americans, as a whole,” Omar stated. “We must always be willing to take a step and think through the criticism, just as I expect people to listen to me when others attack me for my identity. This is the reason why I have to apologize, clearly.”

Many in the GOP called democratic leadership of Omar from the house Committee on Foreign Affairs. President Donald Trump slammed your “lame” excuse and called for her to resign from the Congress.
