Description

In the weeks since they’ve taken office, two freshman Democrats — Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib — have been engulfed in controversy over their criticisms of Israel. We look at how, after decades of unwavering commitment to Israel, the Democratic Party is now dealing with charges of anti-Semitism. Guests: Sheryl Gay Stolberg, who covers Congress for The New York Times, and Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor of The Times.

Since when is opposing the state of Israel (considering it is a result of Britain's early 20th century Mid-East regime building) considered anti-Semitic? since when is considering the area as belonging to Palestinians, Druze citizens, and Israeli Jews considered controversial???

Former President Jimmy Carter wrote a book "Peace not Apartheid" on this subject. It is an interesting perspective from someone who lives his faith.

Stop saying SEMETIC and anti-SEMETIC. The words are SEMITIC and anti-SEMITIC. Study elocution.
