Several media outlets report House Democrats are pulling back from their plan to vote today (Wed) on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism. It would have been an implicit rebuke to Minnesota 5th District Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for accusing backers of Israel of pushing “allegiance to a foreign country.” A group of progressives this morning in Washington announced support for Omar and called on Democratic Party leaders to equally condemn anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, xenophobia and physical threats against any member of Congress. Someone wrote “Assassinate Ilhan Omar” in a men’s bathroom stall at a gas station in Rogers. The Council on American Islamic Relations Minnesota is urging the F-B-I to take that alleged threat seriously.
