House Democrats have called on congressional leaders to condemn controversial remarks made by Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggesting that Israeli money has influenced US politics, reports Politico.

Reps. Josh Gottheimer (N.J.) and Elaine Luria (Va.), who are both Jewish, are collecting signatures for a letter they plan to send to Democratic leaders expressing deep concern over “recent rhetoric from certain members within our Caucus, including just last night, that has disparaged us and called into question our loyalty to our nation.” The letter, which was obtained by POLITICO, is being circulated to Jewish Democrats. -Politico

Omar suggested in a Sunday night tweet that America’s support of Israel is due to donations by pro-Israel groups such as AIPAC, after an earlier tweet responding to journalist Glenn Greenwald was interpreted as anti-Semitic.
