Thank-you for this! The whole brouhaha is certainly effective at shining a light on areas that certain interests would prefer remain in the dark.

Thankfully, keeping clear wrongs unspoken will be more difficult with a more diverse representation.

Why haven’t Tina Smith and Amy Klobuchar defended their Congresswoman?

Outrage Pushes Democrats To Scrap Vote On Resolution Against Ilhan Omar

“Then, as well as now, Omar refused to allow the vilification to stop her from advocating for those “silenced for many decades and many generations.”

“We’re here to fight for the people of our district who want to make sure that there is actual prosperity, actual prosperity, being guaranteed,” Omar declared. “Because there is a direct correlation between not having clean water, and starting endless wars. It’s all about the profit and who gets benefit.”

“There’s a direct correlation between corporations that are getting rich, and the fact that we have students who are shackled with debt. There is a direct correlation between the White House and the people who are benefiting from detention beds.”

Omar concluded, “What people are afraid of is not that there are two Muslims in Congress. What people are afraid of is that there are two Muslims in Congress that have their eyes wide open, that have their feet to the ground, that know what they’re talking about, that are fearless, and that understand that they have the same election certificate that everyone in Congress does.’”

Powerful.

As for Engel, I’ll look for the link that quoted Nancy Pelosi telling Netanyahu to look at her committee chairs.

“Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat who likely will be speaker of the new US House of Representatives, listed pro-Israel lawmakers she plans to name to key committee positions and said her party remained fundamentally pro-Israel.

“We have people very well placed to share our values,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in addressing the final event Sunday of the annual Israeli-American Council conference, after listing planned assignments.”

Is she a fossilized relic or what? Pelosi, Difi, etc. need to retire.

Paul Waldman has been 100% correct in this. He pointed out that Omar said nothing about Jewish “dual loyalty”. Definitely helps to have a WaPo columnist who grew up in a Zionist pro Israel household to give everyone just a little perspective.

Harrris and Warren have also spoken out about this

Harris is a plastic opportunist. Warren?

T and R, Subir!! Thank you, too. CBS commented that the resolution was being delayed a couple of nights ago. I’m glad to see it dropped. I really wonder if common sense is extinct? Sure seems that way politically.

As usual, Subir keeping us fed with the facts. Much appreciated.

I have nothing to add, except my contempt for the conservative Dems is hitting an all-time low. Engel must go.
