Ilhan Omar apologizes for anti Israel remarksRep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Monday apologized for controversial tweets critical of pro-Israel lobbying efforts after lawmakers from both parties accused her of using “anti-Semitic tropes.”

“Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” the freshman lawmaker said in her statement. “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”

She continued: “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”
