Israel Lobby Rebuts Omar's Claims About Its Immense Influence--

• Lewrockwell.com By Caitlin Johnstone

In response to criticisms made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar that US political leaders have too much allegiance to Israel and its lobbying groups, House Democrats have put forward an entire House resolution in accordance with demands made by AIPAC and the Anti-Defamation League.

"The backlash [over Omar's comments] continued on Monday, as the Anti-Defamation League wrote a letter to Pelosi calling for a House resolution to specifically reject what the organization calls Omar's 'latest slur,'" Politico reports. "'We urge you and your colleagues to send the unambiguous message that the United States Congress is no place for hate,' the group's CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, wrote in a letter."

"The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel," tweeted the Israel lobbying group AIPAC on Friday in response to Omar's comments.
