With the 2018 midterms bringing a lot of diversity to Congress, their views are also a bit different from what the political class is used to.

This new generation led by women and minorities wants to shake things up in Washington. Some are happy with this new energy, while others are aggressively defending the status quo.

A recent tweet posted by Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has drawn a lot of negative attention towards her.

Many did not take kindly to Omar’s allegation that the U.S. was only helping Israel because its politicians were in a position where they were practically forced to do so.

She tweeted: "I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee."

As can be expected, many painted Omar as an anti-Semite and started attacking her views on the current situation with Israel and the country’s relationship with the nation.

Omar added that she did not feel like she should be expected to pledge her support to a foreign country just to be allowed to serve her own country in Congress.

The tweet has managed to stir up a lot of controversy after being posted.

Some have pointed out that the discussions around the post have been generally harmful to the current political climate, as they have detracted from more important debates that the public should be engaged in.

Indeed, not everyone seems to agree with the shocked outlook towards Omar’s tweet.

Some have stated that the world should do its best to look over such statements and focus on the actual meaning behind them.

In this case, some have started to discuss the possible implications of the alignment the U.S. has shown towards countries like Israel.

This has been a heated debate topic for some time now, and it looks like statements like this one have done a lot to shed light onto the matter.

For what it is worth, it does look like a complicated topic for a large number of people right now.

Do you agree or disagree with people who paint the congresswoman as anti-Jew?
