The firestorm erupted over comments Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., made last week in a Washington, D.C., bookstore in which she accused supporters of Israel of "allegiance to a foreign country."

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives plan on voting Wednesday on a resolution condemning comments made by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar that many of her colleagues viewed as anti-Semitic, Politico reported Monday.

The firestorm erupted over comments Omar made last week in a Washington, D.C., bookstore in which she accused supporters of Israel of "allegiance to a foreign country," which has historically been used as anti-Semitic charge against Jewish citizens in an attempt to question their loyalty.
