Rep. Omar, Rep. Tlaib Israel trip planned by antisemite, pro-terror group

Chip Roy testifies before a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing

Root said, "The Jewish people in Israel love him like he's the King of Israel". In requesting permission to enter, Tlaib promised not to endorse BDS while in the country or advocate for any actions against Israel.

The president added that he would not cut off aid to Israel.

It came amid his ongoing feud with Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who are both Muslims.

Whether he has done this due to his affinity with the Israeli prime minister, with whom he shares political DNA, or as a principled ideological stance, he has risked his relationship with Europe, the Muslim world and global bodies at every turn.

Netanyahu's low profile contrasted with his criticism of Omar this year when she suggested Israel's supporters were motivated by money and not ideology.

Polls found that 76-79 percent of Jews voted for Democrats in November's midterm elections, mirroring a long history of backing the party.

President Donald Trump quoted a conspiracy theorist in a series of tweets on Wednesday who claimed people in Israel think he is "the second coming of God".

Since final month, Trump has repeatedly taken goal on the 4 minority congresswomen recognized on Capitol Hill as "the Squad", together with in a tweet through which he stated they need to "go back" to the "totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".

Leicester hit back to deny Lampard first win
There was little surprise that Maddison was involved in Leicester's equaliser midway through the second half. Kasper Schmeichel will start in goal for the Foxes on Sunday against Chelsea .

The comments sparked a wave of outrage from U.S. Jewish group who contend they smack of anti-Semitic tropes of "dual loyalty".

"All of a sudden, she starts the tears, and I don't buy it for a second", Trump said of Tlaib, who is the first Palestinian-American to serve in Congress.

"But American Jews don't know him or like him".

But by alternating between calling him a crazed Zionist and an anti-Semite, the media has defused the power of its indiscriminate assault on Trump, shown itself to have less consistency and integrity than the USA president himself, and has given him an oddly easy ride on his Middle East policy.

Trump made the remark in an alternate with reporters within the Oval Workplace forward of a gathering with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis. American Jews have gone to great pains over the years to make it clear that their support of the state of Israel does not impact their loyalty to the U.S.

The Republican Party, in the era post-FDR, has been seen by many Jews as the exclusive party-i.e., the party whose members excluded Jews from country clubs-while the Democratic Party has been viewed as the inclusive party. Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish and is running for president on the Democratic ticket, slammed the president for his remarks while speaking at a rally in Sioux Falls. "President Obama had separation, President Obama built the cells, the cages that you people talk about and attribute them to me", he said. "I think it would've been very bad to let them in".

"It is risky and shameful for President Trump to attack the large majority of the American Jewish community as unintelligent and 'disloyal, '" J Street, a liberal Jewish-American lobbying group, said on Tuesday.
