Read House Democrats' anti-Semitism resolution

The House will vote on a resolution Thursday condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities "as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States."

The big picture: The resolution has caused tension within the Democratic caucus after some members thought it unfairly singled out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her controversial comments about Israel. The resolution does not name Omar specifically, but condemns stereotypes that some Democrats accused her of exploiting, including Jews having "dual loyalty" to the U.S. and Israel. Notably, it also references the 2017 white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, which brought scrutiny on President Trump after he said there were "very fine people" on both sides of the conflict.
