Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is being accused of antisemitism again after accusing pro-Israel Americans of allegiance to a foreign country at an event on Wednesday evening in Washington, DC.
Laura Kelly, reported at the Jewish Insider that Omar told an audience of supporters at the Busboys and Poets café: I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country, meaning Israel.
The idea that Americans who support Israel owe allegiance to Israel, or are guilty of dual loyalty, is a familiar antisemitic theme and has been roundly condemned as such in the past.
(Ironically, Omar once referred to Somalia as our country in blaming U.S. foreign policy for terrorism in 2013.)
Omar was seated at the event next to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who made a similar comment earlier this year when she said that members of the U.S. Senate who supported a pro-Israel bill forgot what country they represent. Her remark drew complaints from Jewish organizations, including the nonpartisan American Jewish Committee.
At the café on Thursday, Omar also accused her Jewish colleagues of Islamophobia, saying that she feared they would interpret every criticism she and Tlaib made about Israel as antisemitism, because we are Muslim.

She would saw off your head without a second thought.
For someone who professes loyalty to Mecca - she’s projecting quite a lot.
Does she accuse pro-”Palestinian” Americans of “allegiance to a foreign country”?
This should be interesting
A bigger problem for America (and Canada) is that there are now enough people in our countries that vote these people into power. And they multiply....quickly.
Nailed it Judy!
The wolves are voting on what to have for dinner.
When I see her recite the Pledge of Allegiance on video, then Ill listen to what she has to say about others. As it stands, her allegiance to Islam supersedes her allegiance to the United States, and she has no room to talk.
Omar couldnt have been more clear. She hates the nation of Israel, hates the people whom live in Israel and hates people supporting Israel because she is a moslem and a democrat. And some people support Omar. Guess what happens to moslems ......
Wonder how she would have felt about pro France americans during WWII?
This woman belongs in Gitmo. That said, anyone running for and holding national office should renounce any foreign allegiances. You are either a citizen of the US or a citizen of some other country.
And her allegiance to ISIS is no big deal; yeah, I get it.
Between Tlaib, Omar, Kotex, Pelousy, Waters, etc., the pickin’s are ripe for pro-Trump ads in 2020!
Thats funny since she has an allegiance to a death cult.
The voters need to insist on a recall.
Overt anti Zionism ( often thinly veiled anti Semitism) is now a tenet to be held by Democrats in good party standing. Wonder if anyone will try to enter a plank in the 2020 Democratic platform affirming US support for Israel? Interesting times ahead.
It appears we have elected a terrorist to serve in congress?
Does she accuse pro-Palestinian Americans of allegiance to a foreign country?————
No, because Palestine isn’t a country and likely won’t ever be a country.
I wouldn’t mind at all if dual citizenship, as is allowed by law with Israel and some other countries, was abolished. A person should have to choose to which country they pay their allegiance.
The US government does not recognize any dual citizenship. There is just no penalty for it.
