I'm probably missing something here, but I do not get how Rep. Ilhan Omar's suggestion that members of Congress are being paid by a powerful interest group to support Israel is, standing alone, an anti-Semitic statement. There have been statements

that Bush was in the pocket of the Saudi's and that Obama was in every Muslim's pocket, that Congressional Reps are in the pockets of the NRA, the defense department, the drug cartels, big pharma, etc., etc., etc. If they are legally accepting funds from pro-Israeli groups, so what? If they are and that is pointed out, how is that anti-Semitic? I mean, we all know that Utah state legislators get tithing rebates for voting how the LDS Church tells them to vote, right?
