US Democrats in ‘Full-Scale Brawl’ over Antisemitism Resolution

US Democrats in ‘Full-Scale Brawl’ over Antisemitism Resolution, by Joel Pollack.

House Democrats cannot agree on a resolution to condemn antisemitism, and a closed-door meeting Wednesday to discuss the issue reportedly collapsed into infighting as rank-and-file members challenged the party leadership.

The meeting “erupted into a full-scale brawl Wednesday,” the Washington Post reported, as some “protested plans to vote this week on a resolution condemning religious hatred, a measure prompted by [Minnesota Rep. Ilhan] Omar’s comments last week suggesting supporters of Israel have “allegiance to a foreign country”.

Omar, who apologized last month for antisemitic comments, set off a new crisis last week when she accused pro-Israel Americans of “allegiance to a foreign country.” Democrat leaders, who have tried to portray President Donald Trump as a bigot, tried to manage the political fallout by promising a vote on a resolution condemning antisemitism on Wednesday. The resolution did not mention Omar specifically, and also condemned anti-Muslim prejudice.

Linda Sarsour Refuses to Acknowledge Israel’s Right to Exist, by Joshua Caplan.

Women’s March co-leader Linda Sarsour on Wednesday refused to respond when asked if Israel has the right to exist after promising to answer the question following a Washington, DC, rally in support of Rep. Ilhal Omar (D-MN), who is under fire for repeated antisemitic remarks.

Inevitable. The modern left is merely a coalition against competition from white Christian males, stitching together an electoral coalition of the fringes. A collection of otherwise incompatible tribes. So short sighted.

Muslims cannot be in a coalition with Jews (whom they really hate, or gays, whom they kill, or … anybody really).

It looks as though the US Democrats are about to make the fateful step of making antisemitism overt or official. At which point the majority of western Jews will switch to opposing the PC left, at last. Should make for interesting media coverage.
