Ilhan Omar is one of the most controversial members of Congress.
But Omar crossed a line that is too far for her allies.
And Ilhan Omar turned Democrats against her with this one sentence.
Ilhan Omar has a history of anti-Semitic comments.
Democrats always did their best not to condemn her by name.
But those days are coming to an end.
Ilhan Omar sent out a tweet comparing the United States and Israel to terrorist groups like Hamas and the Taliban.
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.

That was too much for a group of Jewish Democrats who finally decided to take on Omar and issued a public statement slamming the Minnesota Congresswoman for her anti-Semitic comments.
A number of Omar’s fellow Democrats believe Omar is an anti-Semite, even if they don’t say so publicly.
So on Wednesday night, a group of 12 House Democrats issued their own statement slamming Omar and calling on her to “clarify her words,” which is a nice way of suggesting the second-term lawmaker should apologize and/or retract what she said.
This is a significant escalation in Democrats confronting the growing anti-Semitism on the Left.
Attacks on Jewish Americans in major American cities that are run by Democrats and filled with Democrat voters are not being carried out by Trump supporters.
Ilhan Omar’s bigoted comments are creating a permission structure for leftwing radicals to terrorize Jewish Americans.
Finally some Democrats have had enough of Omar’s act and are calling her to account.
