Sanders Campaign Spox Apologizes For Facebook Post About Jews' 'Dual Allegiance'
Politicoreported that Belen Sisa made the comment as part of a discussion in a Facebook thread in which she said that she supports Rep. Ilhan Omar in the Minnesota Democrat questioning "the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country".
Reps. Greg Steube, Jim Sensenbrenner, Jeff Duncan and Louie Gohmert brought the resolution forward to condemn many of Omar's previous comments about Israel that have gained negative attention as well as how Democratic leadership handled her most recent remarks.
It's typcally hard to replace an incumbent politician, even one as arguably polarizing as Omar, who in her first two months as a congresswoman has sparked contentious debates both as a country and within the party.

Yu also mentioned a 1000-euro foldable phone a year or two from now, a 100- or 200-inch device display using glasses. He added that Huawei's customers love Android and Windows and it will always remain its first choices.
Bee attempted to defend Omar by noting that she did apologize when enough pressure was put upon her, which was immediately undone by the fact that Omar later spoke about how the Israel lobby forces Jews to have "dual loyalty". "There's definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her". Omar had to apologize after previously tweeting pro-Israel politicians are paid off to support the country, and she also invoked the "dual loyalty" canard last month after claiming Israel supporters were forced to show "allegiance to a foreign country". "I'm asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was said by Ilhan", Sisa wrote.
"Do you worry how much the anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic language -mostly the Democratic side in Congress- hurts long-term Israeli-American relations?" asked Kilmeade.
Last week, the House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution sparked in large part by Omar's recent suggestions that Israel supporters want US lawmakers to pledge "allegiance" to the Jewish state - which was widely condemned as echoing the age-old "dual loyalties" smear against Jewish politicians.
"Anti-Semitism is a hateful and unsafe ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world".
Spokesman for the National Conference on Jewish Affairs (NCJA) Rabbi Aryeh Spero organized a "sit-in" protest at the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday, calling for the censure of Omar and blasting Pelosi for her reluctance to do so. But Hunegs said Omar didn't care.
