Sisa said in her apology, "At a time when so many communities in our country feel under attack by the president and his allies, I absolutely recognize that we need to address these issues with greater care and sensitivity to their historical resonance, and I'm committed to doing that in the future".

Ilhan Omar's repeated claims that Jews are buying U.S. politicians have fanned the flames of disapproval, even among her own fellow Minnesota Democrats.

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".

"Instead of specifically addressing the persistent anti-Semitic remarks made by my colleague, House Democrats chose last week to make a mockery of this institution by giving her troubling behavior yet another pass", said Congressman Steube in a statement. "They are more than willing to pose with Omar on magazines covers, but when she tried to talk about a truly hard topic, which is her job as an elected official, and her life was in danger, they kind of threw her under the bus".

Omar's February comment was met with swift condemnation from the Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, New York Rep. Eliot Engel.

At least we don't have regrets that we didn't analyze this question. "We know the situation in the Gulf region", added Infantino. And after hearing Infantino's announcement on Friday, the ECA issued a statement saying its clubs would not participate in 2021.

Omar has come under heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for the use of anti-Semitic slurs. "I'm asking not to rule out the history of this issue, but in the context in which this was said by Ilhan".

Omar tweeted that pro-Israel politicians are paid off with Jewish money and accused Jewish Americans of have a "dual loyalty". "Omar's thinking, her conduct, and her blithe willingness to inject anti-Semitic tropes into the legislative process make her unfit to hold such a strategic position".

Anti-Semitism has been an issue for Democrats in the new Congress because of the statements and actions Muslim Reps.

Minnesota's Jewish community is increasingly frustrated with the comments coming from Omar, saying they have actively reached out to the congresswoman to express their concerns. She went on to back Omar's re-election.
