Rep. Omar apologizes for controversial tweets on Israel lobby after backlash from Democratic leaders

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar apologized Monday afternoon for controversial tweets about the Israel lobby in the United States after her comments were denounced by House Democratic leaders as “anti-Semitic tropes.”

In a post on Twitter, Omar “unequivocally” apologized for the earlier tweets and said her intention was “never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.” But the freshman lawmaker, who was one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress last fall, added that she was not backing down on the “problematic role of lobbyists in our politics.”

Earlier Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders demanded the Minnesota Democrat apologize, which she did just before 3 p.m.

See her tweet below:

Not everyone is buying her apology, which is understandable if you focus on the last paragraph of her tweet.
