Peter Beinart is excited and overjoyed. That is because incoming Rep. Rashida Tlaib has vowed to lead pro-Jihad congressional trips to Israel as a way to counter AIPAC’s congressional trips to Israel. Tlaib intends to falsely accuse Israel of apartheid and justify the racist BDS movement (which she supports) to other Democrats in Congress. Beinart believes that Tlaib (through these trips) may be able to garner enough support from her fellow Democrats to completely ostracize AIPAC and Israel from the Democrat Party.
Unfortunately, Beinart (who is a detestable and dangerous pro-Jihad propagandist) may be correct. That is because AIPAC refuses (at least thus far) to aggressively confront the Israel-hatred and anti-Semitism that is rampant in the Democrat Party, out of fear of offending the Democrat Party elites and their donors, who are, for the most part, Democrats. As a result, bigots such as Tlaib will be able to vilify Israel to other members of Congress with impunity.
AIPAC does not seem to understand that by not defending Israel against the likes of Tlaib, they are risking their credibility and relevance. Why would any pro-Israel Democrat in Congress (the few that remain) support AIPAC if bigots such as Tlaib continue to falsely vilify Israel unchallenged? Furthermore, why would people who care about Israel support AIPAC if they can’t vigorously confront Israel-haters in both political parties?
AIPAC has foolishly chosen not to confront anti-Israel hate groups such as J-Street. However, if AIPAC chooses not to fight the new “Jihad Caucus” (Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, etc.) with everything that they have, then pro-Israel Jews will need to find a new home. A home with a backbone.
