House Democrats are now debating language condemning “anti-Muslim bias” to include in a resolution “rejecting anti-Semitism,” People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) confirmed late Tuesday night.

Democratic leadership intended to bring the resolution to the floor of the U.S. House on Wednesday, which was initially meant as a response to controversial remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., about Israel.

Rejecting anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are
contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States
, didn’t specifically name Rep. Omar, nor contain condemnations of anti-Muslim bias.

It was drafted as a response to growing outrage over remarks made by Rep. Omar, though they are by far not isolated to her, alone.

Rep. Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., became the first Muslim women sworn into Congress in January. That was just 60 days ago, and to date both have either made or posted comments critics have called anti-Semitic.

In January, Rep. Tlaib tweeted that lawmakers who supported a bill protecting states that penalize Israel boycotters “forgot what country they represent.” She has refused to delete the tweet.

Rep. Omar also tweeted, among many other things, that pro-Israel members of the U.S. Congress have dual loyalties.

“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee,” the congresswoman tweeted just last Sunday.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, noted the accusation of dual loyalties has “long been a vile anti-Semitic slur.”

The freshmen lawmaker, who just two months ago was given an assignment on the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee, will as of now not be relieved of the post.

Eleven Jewish groups sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y, who chairs the committee, requesting she be removed from the committee for posting what they call “ugly, anti-Semitic attacks on Jews and their organizations.”

House Democratic leadership have resisted those calls, terrified a move such as that would upset the base of the party, which they hope to keep energized for the 2020 presidential election cycle.

It is unclear what exact language the final draft will include.

While leadership didn’t respond to a request for comment, sources say House Democrats who wanted a clean bill forcibly denouncing anti-Semitism and naming Rep. Omar and others, such as Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, have lost the debate.

    When Muslims pray five times a day facing Mecca and recite those rote prayers in Arabic, aren’t they showing fealty to a foreign entity. (God/Allah is “above” according to Islamic ideology, so the direction of prayer and language Muslims use is significant.)

    But antiGENTILE …. antiCHRIST . … antiWHITE . …… is just fine.
    If someone has a right to be prosomething I have a RIGHT to be anti ….
    PROsemitism ——- what is it?
    If there is an “antisemitism” you must ask: “What is PROsemitism?”
    PROsemitism must be a supporter of “semitism”, which really means Judaism (though most Moslems are SEMITIC and most JEWS are NOT). So what are you supporting if you are a PROsemite? Well first of all we must define Judaism:
    Judaism is neither a race or a religion, it is Xenophobic Tribalism.
    XENOPHOBIC: n.
    A person unduly fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or foreign peoples.
    TRIBALISM: n.
    1. The organization, culture, or beliefs of a tribe.
    2. A strong feeling of identity with and loyalty to one’s tribe or group.
    So right off the get-go you hate all NON-Jews, NON-members of YOUR group(TRIBE).
    You “bundle together” for support and safety, the very definition of Fascism
    THAT means, that if I am not one of the TRIBE, you do not like me.
    Since Jews BRAND all NON-Jews “gentile” automatically denigrating them, to be PROsemitic one must by definition be ANTI-GENTILE.
    They hate all NON-Jews so fundamentally, that they have to SPECIFICALLY name “RIGHTEOUS GENTILES”.
    Those are NON-Jewish HUMANS that went so far out of their way to help/save Jews that the Jews were FORCED to ACKNOWLEDGE the humanity of that specific ‘gentile”. You see, PROsemites do not acknowledge the EQUALITY of spirituality and humanity of “gentiles”
    What the Jewish Rabbis think of JESUS “As for Christianity, there is a dispute among Halachic authorities, but the vast majority consider it idolatry as well. Islam, on the other hand, is not considered idolatry.” Read that last bit again VERY SLOWLY so the “christianzionists” can follow: “ISLAM, on the other hand, is NOT considered idolatry.” ………..

    According to the SPLC & ADL an organization is a “HATE GROUP” if it has
    “beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people”.
    Jews have HATED Egypt for 3,500 years.
    Jews have HATED Babylon for 2,500 years.
    Jews have HATED CHRIST and his followers for 2,000 years.

    David Ben-Gurion, one of the father founders of Israel, described Zionist aims in 1948: “A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion’s strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo… And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram “………….. read that again
    “and settle our forefathers’ account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram”
    They are STILL HATING and planning deadly attacks after 3,500+ YEARS .
    How do you think they feel about JESUS CHRIST whom they have HATED for 2,000 years.
    Israel’s MOTTOES:
    (1) NEVER forgive & NEVER forget.
    (2) By Way of Deception you will Do War.
    Their ONLY(monotheistic) “god” is a WAR god
    PROsemitism is antiGENTILEism and Gentiles are ALL NON-jews.
