This is elsewhere in this forum but I figured we could bring it here.

The DNC should oppose all money allocated to Israel from the federal budget until they backtrack this BS. They will not, but either way, Israel is making a mistake to align themselves this starkly with the republicans. It may not backfire as badly as it should, but it will affect the relationship when the dems are back in power.

Dems will think/talk about it, but I really doubt they do anything with the relationship if/when[please yahweh] they regain power. All it will take is one person with clout to lean on them. I think that asswipe Netanayu knows this.

What Netanyahu knows, IMO, is that there is a rapidly destabilizing West that is speeding toward worldwide irrelevance and wreckage under the weight of the fear-based nationalism that kicked into high gear almost 20 years ago when those buildings went down. He knows that his tyranny will not be stopped because the guy who runs the country that runs the Western world is cool with it. He likes tyrants.

Can you imagine if Gingrich was like "I'm going to Israel" and Bill Clinton encouraged Israel to block him? If Obama did that to Paul Ryan? If Reagan did it to Tip O'Neill? Would never have happened.

Just Sunday, Trump's Starburst boy Kevin McCarthy was in Israel saying every member of Congress should come, and see Israel for themselves blah blah blah. One of Netanayu's underlings said they welcomed every body - which pretty much has been the case thru Israel's history.

Good piece in The Atlantic on how "Trump’s indifference to democratic norms, and his sometimes open antagonism toward them, shapes world leaders’ behavior."

Tlaib and Omar should go to Israel anyway and force them to arrest 2 members of Congress.

If I were a muslim, I'm not sure I'd volunteer for an Israeli jail stint.
