The DemocRats have too many anti-Semites in their ranks to allow this resolution to pass.

The resolution also singled out Congresswoman Omar’s 2012 tweet claiming that Israel has “hypnotized the world.” However, the congresswoman apologized earlier this week and explained that she was unaware of the anti-Semitic connotations associated with the word….
