Democrats Can’t Stop Fighting Over Israel — And the GOP is Loving It
USCPR Executive Director Yousef Munayyer is quoted in this Vice News coverage of the AIPAC conference, where several Democratic leaders delivered speeches filled with veiled attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar for speaking out about Palestinian rights.
These members of Congress are really trying to send a message that everything’s fine, there’s no change among Democrats. They’re trying to reassure the crowd at AIPAC that that’s the case, but I don’t think the crowd believes it, and I don’t think they believe it. The base of the party has grown alienated from Israel and the policies it’s pursuing against the Palestinians.
