Sanders Campaign Spox Apologizes For Facebook Post About Jews' 'Dual Allegiance'

Sanders's campaign aide apologizes for dual-loyalty remark in reference to Jews

"Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one's country come with painful history".

Sisa asked the question Sunday in a Facebook thread in which she said that, like Sanders, she stood with Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American Muslim, whose own comments about US-Israel policies led to allegations of anti-Semitism against her.

We stand here to remind Speaker Pelosi of words that she has spoken many times in the past - that United States support for Israel is not only a matter of mutual interest and shared values, but that American support of a homeland for the Jewish people is a moral imperative - a historical calling that should not be polluted with accusations of dual loyalty or greed.

She deleted the Facebook posts after Politico confronted her about her remarks.

"There's definitely some buzz going around about it, but it's more a buzz of "is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her" than it is anyone saying they're going to run against her or contemplate it", said state Sen.

It was not the first time Omar had been criticized for imputing that Israel's most vocal American backers had been in some way compromised by their support for the state, leading to Democratic infighting over how to respond. Omar had to apologize after previously tweeting pro-Israel politicians are paid off to support the country, and she also invoked the "dual loyalty" canard last month after claiming Israel supporters were forced to show "allegiance to a foreign country".

Omar in 2012 accused Israel of "hypnotizing the world" and prayed that "Allah awaken the people and help them see [its] evil doings".

On Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Democrats became the target of Bee's wrath for their response to Republican criticism of Rep.

"Anti-Semitism is a hateful and risky ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world".

"For weeks now, congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been under fire for comments that some said were anti-Semitic", Bee began.

Spokesman for the National Conference on Jewish Affairs (NCJA) Rabbi Aryeh Spero organized a "sit-in" protest at the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday, calling for the censure of Omar and blasting Pelosi for her reluctance to do so.
