Following the damaging effects of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) anti-Semitic remarks, Democratic Party leaders, including Nancy Pelosi, have been desperately struggling to limit the political ramifications. 

Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has now called on the Democrats to take action.

Last month Omar was forced to apologize after suggesting that pro-Israel members of Congress were funded by organizations like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Following the anti-Jewish remarks from the Democrat, Presdient Donald Trump called for Omar to resign.

“I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” Trump said of the freshman lawmaker.

Not learning from her mistakes, Omar returned with fresh allegations that politicians in Washington are "pushing for allegiance" to Israel.

Rep. Eliot Engel, chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee branded Omar’s comments a “vile anti-Semitic slur” before asking her to apologize.

But Omar doubled down Tweeting on Sunday:

“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country to serve my country in Congress or serve on the committee."

Trump on Monday branded Omar, who has been widely criticized by Jewish groups, as “a dark day for Israel," according to the Times Of Israel.

“Representative Ilhan Omar is again under fire for her terrible comments concerning Israel,” Trump tweeted.

“Jewish groups have just sent a petition to Speaker Pelosi asking her to remove Omar from Foreign Relations Committee. A dark day for Israel!”

The left-leaning ADL ran by Obama administration official Jonathan Greenblatt, was slammed for rushing to accept an “apology” from Omar for past antisemitic comments.

But Omar has not correctly apologized, she just reiterated her comments.

On Monday, Greenblatt tweeted:

Today I wrote to @SpeakerPelosi asking for Congressional resolution rejecting #antiSemitic statements like those made by Rep. Omar & making clear that no matter the political party, the House is united in condemning #antiSemitism.

The House Democratic leaders will propose a resolution on Wednesday opposing anti-Semitism, folwing Omar's remarks and pressure from the ADL.

But it is not clear if the resolution will directly highlight Omar's remarks.

Last month, Nancy Pelosi claimed that President Donald Trump's supporters chant "Jew-S-A" at his rallies and he has “never distanced himself” from it.

Democratic House Speaker Pelosi seemingly defended Omar's anti-Semitic comments by twisting the narrative and targeting Trump.

Pelosi made the false claim when asked by CNN’s Elizabeth Landers to respond to Vice President Mike Pence's statement in which he called Omar’s Monday apology for antisemitic rhetoric “inadequate.”
