Dan Shapiro, who served as President Barack Obama’s ambassador to Israel from 2011 to 2017, called on fellow Democrats to denounce the anti-Israel and antisemitic views of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Monday morning.

In a series of tweets, Shapiro revealed that there had been an ongoing effort by other Democrats to reach out to Omar in the hope that she would broaden her “extreme view” of Israel. These efforts, he said, had failed.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is facing growing calls to rescind Omar’s appointment to the House Foreign Affairs Committee — a position Omar indicated last month was her first choice of committee assignment.
