Cruz to introduce resolution condemning anti-Semitism

By Canadian Press	
	 		House broadly condemns hate after anti Semitism dispute				Mar 09 2019

The flap over Omar's comments exposed differences in the Democratic caucus, with younger, more liberal Democrats more willing to criticize Israel.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended Omar on Thursday, alleging that the freshman congresswoman didn't understand the weight of her words when making statements that many people interpreted to be anti-Semitic.

"They are protecting her by failing to put a resolution on the floor that names her and strips her of her committee assignment".

"We know what happens when people remain silent, every single one of us at all times must stand against it", she said.

It is unclear if the Cruz resolution, unlike the House version, will call out Omar or any members of Congress explicitly.

"History is going to judge them very harshly for that", Raskin said.

He was referring to President Donald Trump's seeming inability a year earlier to explicitly condemn a white nationalist and neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Va.

"Mr. President, you have redefined chutzpah", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who like Trump is from NY.

After last week's vote, Omar issued a statement with fellow Muslim Reps.

One of these teams can claim the runaway worst defence in the Premier League . "I wouldn't want to do it any other way". Chelsea are in the driving seat to finish in the top four following back-to-back victories over Tottenham and Fulham.

Omar and her Democratic "Progressive" friends have played the race, religion and feminist cards since Omar, of Minneapolis, and Tlaib, from Detroit, became the first two Muslim women in Congress. "Our nation is having a hard conversation".

Omar has been the subject of verbal attacks and threats in recent weeks, including a sign posted in the West Virginia State Capitol that falsely linked her to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Pelosi made the remarks defending Omar just head of Thursday's House vote.

"If [Omar] was a Republican, this resolution would've been naming names, she'd be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee and we would be talking about anti-Semitism exclusively, singularly and forcefully", he insisted.

"The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party", he said.

Speaking to reporters, Trump said he thought "yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful". As I have often written before, what you say in such sensitive matters can matter less than what people hear.

Democrats on Sunday disputed that characterization, with Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif., noting that the resolution passed on a bipartisan basis. Expanding this resolution to everything else under the sun while excluding Omar's name was silly, though the political motives for doing so are understandable.

"I probably don't agree with her a lot about what she feels about Israel and Palestine, but I don't know why this has to be seen as anti-Semitic", Maher said at the time.
