You would think that with Jew-haters Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandra Octavio-Cortez already so prominent in the liberal media the Democrat party—but I repeat myself—would, y’know, tread lightly with their obvious tolerance for the world’s oldest hate.
But you would be wrong.
The Democrats invited a well known Jew-hater, Omar Suleiman, to give the Ramadan invocation at the House of Representatives.
In short, the Democrats have doubled down on their legitimization of Jew-hatred.
From Commentary magazine by Abe Greenwald:
Disease is reversible—rot isn’t. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib brought the disease of anti-Semitism into the upper echelons of the Democratic Party when they were elected in November. The party could have fought the disease. It chose instead to nurture it. And that’s when the irreversible rot set in.
The rot explains why Democrats, from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on down, are vigorously defending Tlaib’s recent lies about Arabs welcoming Jews after the Holocaust. It doesn’t matter what Tlaib or Omar say, how blunt their Jew-hatred is, or how often it’s aired. A defense pact is already in place that covers all calumnies against the Jews. Both the Democratic leadership and the liberal media establishment will back these bigots against any and all charges of anti-Semitism in return for smooth relations with the social-justice left. It’s a monstrous deal made by people too weak to defend their party and speak the truth.
Israel is one of the most free and most prosperous countries in the world. Not only is Israel a booming economy and a wellspring of innovation, it is the only democracy in the Middle East. So why is it so controversial to support the Jewish state? Stephen Harper, the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada, lays out several fundamental truths about America’s most critical ally.
Rabbi Jonathan Sacks explains that antisemitism is a virus that has mutated over time and why its return today presents a danger not just for Jews, but for all who care about our common humanity.
