If you want the State of Israel to have American support 10 years from now you’ll side with Omar and her right to speak her mind. The bullying US Israel Lobby is turning off an entire generation of Americans to Israel by making support for Israel into a Republicans-only issue.
“Republicans gleefully trying to accuse all Democrats of being anti-Israel are wrong, and, worse, risk hurting the U.S.-Israel relationship for the sake of scoring political points; and by his conduct in joining forces with a racist right-wing party and in getting tangled up in a corruption investigation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes it harder for Americans of all political views to support the democratic government of Israel. In courting Trump so assiduously and seeking American help to preserve his government, Netanyahu risks alienating the American left even further” (Jennifer Rubin Washington Post).
