"What weakens us is, instead of engaging in legitimate debate about policies, someone questions the motives of his or her fellow citizens," Hoyer said in a clear shot at Omar, who had questioned the loyalties of U.S. politicians. "So let’s have debates on policy instead of imputing the loyalty of Israel’s supporters."
"I stand with Israel, proudly and unapologetically," Hoyer said. "So when someone accuses American supporters of dual loyalty, I say: accuse me."
Hoyer then blasted the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign that Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) both support and on which Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refuses to take a clear stance.
"When the curtain is pulled back, everyone can see what the [BDS] movement truly is: a front for delegitimizing the Jewish people’s right to self-determination," Hoyer said.
