APN disappointed by Rep. Omar's apparently questioning pro-Israel Americans' allegiance

We deeply regret and are disappointed by a comment made on Wednesday by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn), who was quoted as saying: “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” 

This comment could be read to suggest that some Americans are guilty of dual loyalty. This plays into an anti-Semitic trope that has been leveled against Jews in the US and elsewhere. We hoped that Rep. Omar would know better than this by now.
