THE lEFT IS THE rIGHT:

Omar ignites new anti-Semitism controversy with comments on AIPAC (JOHN BRESNAHAN,  02/10/2019, Politico)

Freshman Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar ignited a new controversy on Sunday night when she suggested GOP support for Israel is driven by campaign donations from a prominent pro-Israel group.

Omar singled out AIPAC, one of the most influential lobbying groups in Washington, as the source of those donations.

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.

She, of all people, should recognize that the support for Israel is far more insidious than crackpot theories about Jewish money. The Right approves of how Israel treats its Muslim population. The Judaism is coincidental.
