Nancy Pelosi: 'No taint' of anti-Semitism in Democratic Party

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that there is "no taint" of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party amid allegations against the party and individual lawmakers.

"We have no taint of that in the Democratic Party, and just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn't mean ... that we take that bait," Pelosi said in an interview with CNN.

She called out President Trump for his allegations that the party is "anti-Jewish," saying the president is "bankrupt of any ideas" when he uses such accusations to undermine her party.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has recently faced allegations of anti-Semitism after she tweeted earlier this year that support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins," and later said pro-Israel groups “push for allegiance to a foreign country." The comments drew backlash from lawmakers in both parties, with House Republicans calling for Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

2. Well said, Madam Speaker.

Criticism of Bibi's Milosevic-style ethnic cleansing and Saddam-style territorial annexation is not tantamount to disrespect to the Jewish people - no matter how often Bibi (of course) claims it might be.

This would be a little like saying that criticism of what Bush did in Iraq and Afghanistan is like pillorying all Christians.
