US President Donald Trump has touted his quick decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, reiterating his support for Israel. 'Oh, I forgot. She doesn't like Israel, I forgot, I'm sorry.
She is an outspoken critic of the U.S. policies toward Israel and has been in controversies several times since coming to Congress.
"The Democrats have even allowed the awful scourge of anti-Semitism to take root in their party and in their country", Trump said. Trump has cited his moving of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and his decision to pull the USA out of the Iran nuclear deal as reasons for Jewish voters to leave the Democratic party and support him and the GOP instead.
Patrick W. Carlineo, the NY man charged with threatening to kill Rep. Omar, asked one of her staff members if she works "for the Muslim Brotherhood", according to a criminal complaint released Saturday by federal prosecutors in the Western District of NY. American Jews who dislike Netanyahu view Gantz as preferable, due in part to a less combative personality, but liberals note with frustration that the platform of Gantz's Blue and White party makes no mention of Palestinian statehood, and says that Israel will maintain control of parts of the West Bank.
The protest was staged by IfNotNow, an American Jewish activist group.
Trump also acknowledged that he relies on his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and David Friedman, the US ambassador to Israel, to help guide him on issues pertinent to Israel. "Tell me, I don't know", Trump asked the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas.

Eventually the Ethiopian Airlines pilots couldn't keep the plane from crashing into the ground, killing all 157 people on board . The pilots followed Boeing-specified procedures, but weren't able to regain control of the plane after the malfunction.
"You're not going to support me because I don't want your money", Trump said then.
Trump on Saturday was speaking to an audience comprised primarily of American Jews.
Earlier, three protesters stood on their chairs as Trump began to speak, shouting, "Jews are here to say: Occupation is a plague".
Before the U.S. president's appearance, people gathered for the event, carrying signs reading "We are Jews for Trump" and "Trump" written in Hebrew. Dozens of men and several women wore red yarmulkes with "Trump" in white that were distributed at the event.
Prior to Trump's address, four former Democrats took the stage - all of whom had voted for Barack Obama at least once - to explain why they had each shifted their allegiances to the Republican Party.
On March 25, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Trump who signed a proclamation which officially acknowledged that the USA recognized Israel sovereignty over Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria in the 1960s, according to The Daily Mail.
