One Democratic House candidate has pledged that she will vote against bills that include aid to Israel, denouncing what she saw as the “injustice” of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Another wrote that “Israel has hypnotized the world” with its “evil doings.”
One of the outstanding things about the 2018 class of candidates was the high number of Democratic candidates who were either antisemitic, anti-Israel or both. But the truly astonishing thing was the high number of American Jews who voted for and supported those candidates.
“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)
Make no mistake about it, the new Socialist wing of the Democratic Party is pro-Palestine and anti-Israel. So it is very interesting to me that one of the main funders of the party is George Soros, a Hungarian Jew who sold out his own people and sided with the Nazis in WWII Germany. In tragic irony, American Jews seem to be following his lead and voting in candidates who are against Israel and against the Jews, despite being Jews themselves.
Just one generation after the horror of Hitler’s Holocaust, history seems to be repeating itself as American Jews cuddle up to the very people who seek their destruction. Looks like #NeverAgain has been cancelled.
Let’s take a look at some of the the overt antisemitism on display in the 2018 Midterm elections:
- Democrat Rashida Tlaib Dances with Palestinian Flag at Victory Party: Video of Democrat Rashida Tlaib dancing wearing the Palestinian flag at a victory party emerged Tuesday evening, after she won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in Michigan’s heavily Democratic 13th congressional district.Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress on Tuesday, along with Ilhan Omar, who replaced outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress. Both Tlaib and Omar have extreme anti-Israel views. Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress. READ MORE

Ocasio-Cortez Claims Israel Is ‘Occupying,’ Palestine: In an appearance on PBS’s Firing Line Friday, New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez characterized the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict as an “occupation” before ultimately conceding that she was not entirely familiar with the geopolitical particulars.
“I also think that what people are starting to see, at least in the occupation of Palestine, is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition and that to me is just where I tend to come from on this issue,” Ocasio Cortez said when pressed to expand on her previous criticisms of Israel.

A New Wave of Democrats Tests the Party’s Blanket Support for Israel: One Democratic House candidate has pledged that she will vote against bills that include aid to Israel, denouncing what she saw as the “injustice” of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Another wrote that “Israel has hypnotized the world” with its “evil doings.”
Still another helped write a scathing book on relations between the United States and Israel, while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive political star expected to win a House seat in New York, condemned the “occupation of Palestine.”
A cluster of activist Democrats — most of them young, most of them cruising toward House seats this fall — has dared to breach what has been an almost inviolable orthodoxy in both political parties, strong support for Israel, raising the specter of a crack in the Democratic Party that Republicans could use to attract Jewish supporters.
Surging support for the Palestinian cause has already strained relations between liberal parties and Jewish voters in Europe. In Britain, the Labour Party’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has been accused of anti-Semitism for a pro-Palestinian stand that has veered into statements that many see as outright bigotry. Across the United States, movements to force colleges and universities to boycott, divest investments from and place sanctions on Israel have divided some progressive students from their Jewish peers.

- Fake News Media Unconcerned about Antisemitic views of Ilhan Omar: The 2018 midterm will bring many new faces to Washington, but few will find as much adoration as Ilhan Omar. One of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Omar, who will represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, is a Somali refugee with a celebrity aura and an uplifting story.What went curiously unmentioned in all the flattering post-election coverage, however, was that Omar, who replaces Keith Ellison — a former acolyte of anti-Semitic minister Louis Farrakhan — also has some exotic notions about the Jewish people.In a 2012 tweet, for instance, the Democrat explained that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”Meanwhile, the other Muslim woman headed to Congress is Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants who wants to cut aid to the Jewish state because supporting it “doesn’t fit the values of our country.”Writer David Steinberg identified 105 news stories written in the immediate aftermath of Omar’s victory, and not a single one mentioned that she believed Jewry possessed mind-control abilities or that Israel was “evil.” No one called on the Democratic Party to distance itself from this rhetoric.No one at the partisan Anti-Defamation League, ostensibly tasked with stopping anti-Jewish libel but in reality busy hyperventilating over every far-flung right-wing bigot with a handful of supporters, paid her any attention.

- Women’s March in Washington is run by a woman who hates Jews and supports Louis Farrakhan: Last year’s Women’s March was organized hastily and most of the women who attended had no idea who Linda Sarsour was or what she stands for. A year later, however, you do not have the luxury of ignorance as a reason for attending. Linda Sarsour is a rabid anti-semite who hates Jews, supports cop killers, and praises the Jew-hating teachings of Louis Farrakhan.In September, Sarsour said American Muslims shouldn’t “humanize” Israelis. There was no overwhelming response from the left to remind her that Israelis are actually human. American Jews who ignore this hatred are fooling themselves. Anti-Semitism is specifically about dehumanizing Jews until their murder makes sense. READ MORE
- Anti-Israel, pro-BDS candidates are the future in a radicalized Democratic Party: In her first campaign, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28 year-old “Democratic” socialist, toppled 10-term Democratic powerbroker Joe Crowley in a June primary race in New York’s 14th District. Responding to this major political upset, progressive Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez dubbed her the “future of our party.” The press agrees, calling her the “new face” of the Democratic Party.Backed by the Democratic Socialists of America, she touts their agenda — abolish ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and promote universal health care, affordable housing and free college tuition — part of their “statism” agenda, packaged as do-goodery. On DSA’s support for the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement against Israel, she coyly has “no comment…at this time.” Don’t be fooled. She’s seen as the embodiment of the Democrats’ shift away from the Jewish state.Ocasio-Cortez vilifies Israel, labeling the Israeli army’s defensive actions on the Gaza border “a massacre.” Using the intersectionality meme, she equates Palestinian Gazans and Ferguson blacks as victims of similar oppression. Israelis are demonized as Western colonialist victimizers and Jews are portrayed as “white privileged.”Bernie Sanders’ strong 2016 presidential run exemplified the growing far-left movement in the Democratic Party. Now he’s teamed up with Ocasio-Cortez to support progressive candidates.Sanders’ views on Israel dovetail nicely with those of Ocasio-Cortez. Remember, he wanted the 2016 Democratic platform to explicitly describe Israel as an occupier and omit any condemnation of BDS. One of Sanders’ platform committee representatives was BDS supporter Cornel West who wrote that the crimes of Hamas “pale in the face of the US supported Israeli slaughters of innocent civilians.” READ MORE
