    Trump calls on Ilhan Omar to resign from Congress for ‘anti-Semitism’
    February 12, 2019
    WASHINGTON (JTA) — President Donald Trump called on Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., to resign from Congress for what he said was her anti-Semitism.
    “It’s terrible what she said and I think she should either resign from Congress, or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday. “What she said is so deep-seated in her heart that her lame apology, and that’s what it was, it was lame and she didn’t mean a word of it, was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from Congress.”
    Omar, in her first term in the Congress, said Sunday on Twitter that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee pays lawmakers to be pro-Israel. After condemnations from Republicans and Democrats, including the Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives, she said she “unequivocally” apologized after speaking with “Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes.”

    Rep. Ilhan Omar punches back at Trump: 'You have trafficked in hate your whole life'

    On Wednesday, she punched back, throwing the charge of prejudice at President Donald Trump.
    "You have trafficked in hate your whole life – against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more," she tweeted. "I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?"
    Her tweet followed Trump's call for her to resign and Vice President Mike Pence's tweet that she should face consequences for her words, such as being removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
    Not long after, she engaged in a tense exchange with Elliott Abrams, Trump's special envoy to Venezuela, during a committee hearing. Omar began by referencing Abrams' 1991 conviction for withholding information from Congress during the Iran-Contra scandal, an offense for which he was pardoned by President George H.W. Bush.
    “I fail to understand why members of this committee, or the American people, should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful," Omar told Abrams.
    As he tried to respond, Omar interrupted.
    "That was not a question," she said, before asking about his initial dismissal in 1982 of reports of massacres by Salvadoran army soldiers in the village of El Mozote.
    "Yes or no, do you think that massacre was a fabulous achievement that happened under our watch?" she asked.
    Abrams called it a "ridiculous question."
    "I am not going to respond to that kind of personal attack, which is not a question," he said.

    Rep Omar is back in news, from Drudge:



    Rep. Ilhan Omar criticized again for alleged anti-Semitism...


    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Rep. Ilhan Omar has come under fresh criticism for remarks critics call anti-Semitic.
    The Minnesota Democrat was appearing at a forum in Washington with Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan when she said she fears everything they say about Israel is construed as anti-Semitic because they’re Muslim.
    But some Jewish leaders say Omar then revived an old trope about divided loyalties among Jewish-Americans when she criticized the idea that it’s “OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
    Steve Hunegs of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas says he’s appalled.
    Spokesman Jeremy Slevin says Omar was just speaking out Wednesday about “the undue influence of lobbying groups for foreign interests.” Slevin said Omar repeated her remorse for the pain that her previous comments caused.

    Hollywood fights back: Studios blacklist actress Penelope Cruz over Gaza genocide letter
    Rhys Blakely Los Angeles
    August 9 2014
    The Oscar-winning actors Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have fuelled furious divisions within Hollywood over the Gaza conflict by accusing Israel of committing “genocide” in the territory.
    Pledges to shun the Spanish actors – believed to have been made privately by a handful of top industry executives – came after Bardem and Cruz, who are married, signed an open letter denouncing “the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army”.

    I do not have a problem with Omar calling out one group or another. The thing I have a problem with is radical Islam and we know Omar comes from that background and Sharia law does not work with Liberty.

    Ok, but question was about Trump's call for her to resign, do you have any problem with that call or ok with it?

    Besides the Penelope Cruz case, does your view apply in the case of Trump call for Ilhan Omar resignation also?
    More African/Mideast background people coming to US following Iraqi freedom/global interventions/Barack Hussein Obama election and increasing sharia infleunce etc are also an interesting discussion we could delve into separately. If MAGA regime remained on same interventions path as Bush-Cheney-AIPAC alliance, won't be too surprsing in coming years if someone looking like IO was sitting in White House again.

    I do not agree, but I think President Trump is looking beyond her rhetoric, IMHO.

    New York's MTA Launches Investigation of Anti-semitism over Measles Outbreak

    April 12, 2019 By Aiden Pink Drew Angerer/Getty Images...
    A man walks past school buses near the Yeshiva Kehilath Yakov School in the South Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, April 9, 2019.

    New York City has ordered all yeshivas in a heavily Orthodox Jewish section of Brooklyn to exclude from classes all students who aren’t vaccinated against measles, or face fines or possible closure. The order comes amid a recent outbreak of over 285 measles cases in Brooklyn and Queens, most of which have been concentrated in the Orthodox Jewish communities.

    New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority is investigating a complaint from an Orthodox Jewish man who says he was discriminated against by a bus driver because of New York City’s measles epidemic, which is largely confined to the ultra-Orthodox community.
    The man said he was waiting at a bus stop in Brooklyn when the bus driver refused to stop the bus for him. He ran after the bus, and the driver eventually let him in while allegedly covering her face and saying “go in, measles.”
    The incident was reported by the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg, which is working with the city to curb the measles outbreak by educating the community and encouraging vaccination.
    Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed in on the incident. “Anti-Semitic discrimination has no place in our city,” he tweeted. “We’ve reached out to the MTA about this report and will make sure it is thoroughly investigated.”
