Burnett asked Republican Trump apologist Scott Jennings how the president can attack Omar when he doesn't have much of a leg to stand on himself.

He and others are upset, among other things, over her tweet suggesting that the only reasons U.S. politicians support Israel is that they are paid to do so by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

"Bad form, Congresswoman. That's the second anti-Semitic trope you've tweeted", she added. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

AIPAC stated that it was proud that it enjoys support across the aisles and called on its members to help it bolster "bipartisan efforts in support of the shared values" with a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more, according to Haaretz. Politicians like Nancy Pelosi and advocacy groups such as the American Jewish Committee said Omar had invoked an old anti-Semitic trope whereby Jews are seen to control politics through wealth. "We will not be deterred in any way by ill-informed and illegitimate attacks on this important work".

"Her comments trouble me", Clinton wrote to a follower, noting that she wanted to meet with Omar to express her concern. Later she implied in a second tweet she believed AIPAC was paying USA politicians to support Israel.

Omar has been critical of the Israeli government over its treatment of Palestinians and has supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement - a nonviolent activist campaign that aims to put economic and political pressure on Israel over its actions toward Palestinians, including calling for an end to Israeli occupation of the West Bank. "But these efforts have failed. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole", her statement read.

While Democrat leadership has remained quiet about the growing antisemitism in the party, two House Democrats, Reps.

"We must speak out when any Member-Democrat or Republican-uses harmful tropes and stereotypes, levels accusations of dual loyalty, or makes reckless statements like those yesterday", the representatives wrote.
