It's not anti-Semitic to point out that money influences our politics - that's just a fact. It's also true the myth of "Jewish Money" has been used for centuries as a weapon against Jewish communities. It’s incumbent that we, as progressives are aware of this history, and are very careful when we talk about these phenomena in conjunction with one another. We’re organizers, and we recognize that many things deserve a longer conversation than the 280 characters Twitter affords.

In addition, we thank Rep. Omar for her apology, and her pledge to continue to work with her Jewish constituents.
