Bernie Sanders has gained some companions in the American Congress⸻companions who share his extreme nutcase leftist ideology and the general leftist hostility to the State of Israel. Some of these Israel haters are just plain ignorant of the realities on the ground here so they fall back on the slogans of their fellow travelers on the Left. The others know damn well that their hostility to Israel is based on liesbut, in the pattern of the Nazi Big Lie, the longer you repeat the lie, the greater the chance that you will end up believing it as true.
Democratic disillusionment with Israel, which has been quietly
simmering for years, is gaining traction. For example, LastMay, Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, condemned the Israeli government for the “horrific slaughter” of more than 50 Palestinians protesting just inside the border fence of the Gaza Strip. “We are witnessing the use of unabated brutality and force against civilians to stifle civil unrest,” tweeted Yarmuth, WHO IS JEWISH. “America must expect and demand more from its close allies.” Of course, Yarmouth was ignoring the realities of the situation in Gaza, especially near the border. The “civilian” about whom he spoke for the most part were Hamas activists who were hurling rocks and firebombs at our soldiers.
Of course, things are equally discomforting when we look at some of the freshman members of Congress who were recently elected: Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan are now Islam’s Trojan Horse into the Congress.
