Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a desperate email to her liberal supporters just before Thursday's House vote on an anti-hatred resolution, claiming an influential Jewish group is “coming after” her and her allies Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. 

The fundraising email claimed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is attempting to single out the liberal lawmakers for Omar's recent remarks on questioning the United States relationship with Israel.

“It’s official – AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan and Rashida,” the email referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

“Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it.”

The email quotes “AIPAC activist” – Stephen Fiske, who recently told the New York Times that the trio “will not be around in [Congress in] several years.”

The notes also highlighted that “some members of Congress have even gone so far as to claim that ‘questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable.’”

In the fundraising plea, “Team AOC” said that “just a decade ago it was ‘unquestionable’ to not support the war in Iraq.”

And we all saw what resulted from that lack of discussion and negotiation,” the email added.

“Help us build a progressive movement that fights for the honest conversation, inclusiveness and our universal fight with hate with a $27 contribution,” it continued.

The letter also references a tweet from fellow Democratic Rep. Juan Vargas (Calif.), who said this week that it was "unacceptable" for Democrats to question the U.S. relationship with Israel, according to The Hill.

After the House passed a resolution on Thursday which was revised to condemn multiple forms of hatred following freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar antisemitic remarks.

House Democrats revolted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tuesday after she scrambled to condemn the anti-Semitic statements.

Pelosi is reportedly "taken aback" by growing dissent and anger among rank-and-file Democrats over a possible resolution to formally condemn anti-Semitism.

Pelosi said earlier this week that she doesn't believe Rep. Ilhan Omar's recent series of recent tweets were "intentionally anti-Semitic."

Yesterday, the former candidate for the "Justice Democrats," the same arm that elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), branded Pelosi as a "white supremacist.""Justice Democrat" Saira Rao who ran for office in Colorado, has been defending Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she was accused of making anti-Semitic statements, which has angered both sides.
