"In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive", Belén Sisa, Sanders' incoming deputy press secretary for Latino outreach, said in a statement.

We stand here to remind Speaker Pelosi of words that she has spoken many times in the past - that U.S. support for Israel is not only a matter of mutual interest and shared values, but that American support of a homeland for the Jewish people is a moral imperative - a historical calling that should not be polluted with accusations of dual loyalty or greed.

The sit-in is aimed at antisemitic comments from congressional Democrats, specifically Rep. Ilhan Omar. She suggested pro-Israel lawmakers have dual loyalties and that they pledged their "allegiance to a foreign country".

As president of the Daniel Pearl Foundation, and a lifelong Democrat, I urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to act boldly and decisively on Rep. Ilhan Omar's antisemitic bigotry.

Omar has come under heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for the use of anti-Semitic slurs.

Those who want Omar replaced are looking for someone to contest her nomination and have been meeting to discuss that objective, The Hill reported Thursday. Rabbi Spero further points to Omar's position on the highly sensitive House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar's most recent remark that received backlash - accusing members of Congress of having a "dual loyalty" with the United States and Israel - was also referenced in the document.

In her apology, Omar said that "anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes".

Last week, the House passed a bipartisan resolution condemning hate speech in the wake of Omar's comments.

"Anti-Semitism is a hateful and risky ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world".

Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Massachusetts' Elizabeth Warren also posed similar concerns, with Harris expressing her worry "that the spotlight being put on (Omar) may put her at risk". But Hunegs said Omar didn't care.
