With two Jews running for president for the first time in the history of the Democratic Party, it would seem odd to accuse that party of anti-Semitism, but it’s hard to deny it has been there for years—remember the eruption over Israel–Palestine at the Dems’ 2012 convention—and is growing.
Needless to say, this is occurring under the mantle of anti-Israel/anti-Zionism, but that bogus veneer has long been debunked as an obvious cover for bigotry.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) made that abundantly clear when she defined the U.S.-Israel alliance as being “about the Benjamins.”
Indeed, it at first appeared that of the five current Democratic candidates for president, only Michael Bloomberg would attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on March 1 and 2, a complete reversal of historic behavior.
