The democratic party USA on Wednesday officially condemn Ilhan Omar for anti-Semitism

The resolution, which promote the leaders of the democratic party and was a response to the indignation of the Jewish lawmakers, who accused Omar of anti-Semitism due to the fact that she called them lawyers of Israel, «certain foreign country». Informed colleagues in the Congress party offered Omar to apologize, and Ilhan a month ago apologized. However, this weekend, speaking at a meeting in a bookstore in Washington, he spoke again about the influence of Israel on American policy and, later, Twitter has developed this theme, defending his position: «Our democracy is built on debate!», — I wrote to Omar, «I have not misrepresented our relationship with Israel, I put them into question… we have to distinguish between criticism of a specific faith and fair criticism of the lobbying groups.»

Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of The 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!
