She continued, "And you know being able to mobilize progressive leaders across the country to sign on to a letter to organize a press conference in support of Ilhan Omar to call on the Democratic leadership to actually expand the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry because that's the kind of movement we're apart of".

"Yesterday's vote was disgraceful", he said.

The resolution also "acknowledges the unsafe consequences of perpetuating anti-Semitic stereotypes" and "rejects anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States". "We are proud of the strong and unanimous position taken by House Democrats to condemn anti-Semitism and hatred in all its forms, and note that it was Republicans who were divided in their vote", her statement concluded.

After the vote, Omar avoided reporters, but issued a statement with three other Muslim lawmakers, Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich: "It's the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation's history", the three Democrats said. Omar, a Somali refugee who resettled in Minnesota, had sparked fiery debate with her repeated criticisms of Israel and how a powerful pro-Israel lobby in Washington exerts influence on United States politicians.

She continued: "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress".

Ex-Trump campaign boss Paul Manafort sentenced to 47 months in prison
None of his comments caught more attention than the ones questioning Mueller's intentions in prosecuting Manafort . Manafort also still faces sentencing in the District of Columbia in a separate case related to illegal lobbying.

Republican lawmakers, who prior to the vote condemned the bill as being watered down, were the only ones to oppose the resolution, with one member voting as present.

"I will go with what [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi said because I believe this". The Anti-Defamation League said it had "obvious antisemitic overtones".

As president, Trump sparked a firestorm by saying there were "very fine people on both sides" at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, where demonstrators chanted "Jews will not replace us". She sounded a lot like New York Times foreign policy expert Tom Friedman, who coincidentally grew up in Omar's district.

Second HIV remission ignites hope for cure
CCR5 was the target in the genome of the controversial gene-edited twins born past year in China, whose father is HIV-positive. Using bone marrow transplants to cure HIV in everyone who has the virus, though, remains impractical, expensive , and risky.

Other prominent Jewish groups, however, welcomed the resolution.
