Democrats and Israel


J Street was set up to counteract AIPAC, the target of Omar’s ire, and push for a more moderate, balanced U.S. policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But it also opposes BDS and some of the positions of farther-left Israel critics. The group dropped its endorsement of Rep. Rashida Tlaib before the midterm elections when it became clear she does not support a two-state solution.

There are a couple of people in the caucus who have come out in favor of BDS, but there’s 230 members who have not. I don’t see that as a sharp divide. What I see is Republicans who, for partisan purposes, are trying to drive a wedge in the Democratic Party.

Talking about cooperation that is needed to make progress in favour of all US-Americans.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D - MN) accuses Jewish groups of financing pro-Israel bill


Omar's comments touched upon a long-running, and particularly ugly, thread of the anti-Semitic movement — that Jewish money fuels backing for Israel in the United States and elsewhere. A freshman Democrat, Max Rose of New York, said, "Congresswoman Omar's statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself."

This doesn't answer the question, though. She wanted to know whether Jewish groups fueled campaign donations that now led to this bill which she rejected on her behalf.

And the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee is a non-profit that doesn't donate directly to candidates.

Hm...

"Equating [Omar and Tlaib's] criticism of Israel to Steve King's long defense of white supremacy is obscene (McCarthy said it's worse). In the US, we're allowed to criticize our own government: certainly foreign governments. The GOP House Leader's priorities are warped."

#Jerusalem has got a discrimination problem


Like many Palestinians, he had experienced suspicion and racism before in Jewish-majority west Jerusalem. Facing discrimination is common for Palestinians trying to rent apartments on the well-maintained west side of the city. Sometimes it’s an upfront “No Arabs” directive from the landlord, but more often it is harder to pinpoint; not getting a call back once an Arabic name comes up, for example.

In the decades since, a deep disparity has grown between the poverty-stricken Palestinian east side and largely Jewish Israeli west Jerusalem: for example, annually only 13% of the city’s building permits issued by the Israeli government are granted to Palestinians in east Jerusalem.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D - MN) adresses her comments on Daily Show


“You are someone who has been very outspoken, you've always spoken your mind and spoken directly to people, voters, your colleagues, et cetera, and recently you've come under fire for a few of your previous comments,” Noah told his guest.

“That happened for me,” Omar said. “I was like, ‘Do not call me that, that's not what I was doing.’ And I was like, oh, I see what you're saying now. So I had to take a deep breath and understand where people were coming from and what point they were trying to make, which is what I expect people to do when I'm talking to them about things that impact me or offend me.”

Protest art - is it really art?


An online petition has also been launched to demand the removal of Finnish artist Jani Leinonen's artworks, which included a crucified Ronald McDonald and Mattel dolls - Ken and Barbie - representing Jesus Christ and Virgin Mary.
Although Leinonen made a name for himself as a subversive anti-capitalist protest artist, the artworks he chose to put on display in the Haifa Museum's "Sacred Goods" exhibition missed the mark.

In her letter to the museum director, Regev stated: "The values that distinguish us as a Jewish and democratic state oblige us to respect the religious feelings of all citizens of the State of Israel - Muslims, Christians, Druze and others." She insisted that disrespecting sacred symbols "may affect the delicate fabric of our democratic society, which respects the religious feelings of others as one of its most enlightened foundations."
