No matter what you think of Nancy Pelosi or her politics, one thing is sure. She came through big time for Israel at AIPAC recently.
“Israel and America are connected now and forever. We will never allow anyone to make Israel a wedge issue....That pledge is proudly honored in this Congress, where support for Israel remains ironclad and bipartisan...... In our democratic societies, we should welcome legitimate debate at how best to honor our values and to advance our priorities without questioning loyalty or patriotism....we must also be vigilant against bigoted or dangerous ideologies masquerading as policy, and that includes BDS," referring to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement."
Unsurprisingly, Ilhan Omar defended antisemites like herself who promote BDS:
"A condemnation for people that want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader, and I hope that we find a better use of language when we are trying to speak as members of Congress that are sworn to protect the Constitution."
So far I'm not seeing any strong condemnation of Pelosi at dKos or other such sites although Chuck Schumer is taking tons of flak. Schumer is Jewish while Pelosi is not but that can't mean anything can it?
At any rate, kudos to Pelosi for her remarks and support. I suspect the new wave of Dems will get rid of her first chance they get.
