Is there a Democrat Jewish
Congressional Caucus?

June 19, 2021 --

The following is from Breitbart,com, June 10:

"A dozen Jewish Democrat House members are calling out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her comparison of the United States and Israel to Hamas terrorists."

LPR wonders, why just Jewish Democrats on this  justified criticism of the noxious Rep. Omar?

Some time after the criticism of Rep. Omar from 12 House Democrats who are Jewish, the House Democrat leadership chimed in, as reported by PJ Media, June 10:

“Drawing false equivalencies between democracies like the U.S. and Israel and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all,” read the statement from Nancy Pelosi and five other House Democrat leaders.

“We welcome the clarification by Congresswoman Omar that there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban.”

It would, of course, be helpful if Speaker Pelosi pointed out that the aim of Hamas, as stated in its charter, is to replace Israel with an Islamist Palestine.
