Polling shows a growing divide within the Democratic Party when it comes to support for Israel. he party's younger, more liberal members increasingly support the Palestinians more than Israel, which could lead to changes in the party platform, and perhaps, U.S. support.Three new members of Congress are amplifying that agenda.
Pro-Israel voices increasingly are told they are not welcome within progressive causes with rhetoric that meets the State Department's definition of anti-Semitism.
Part 2 of our exclusive video series examines political actors who help sustain the anti-Semitic trend, as well as ideas that pro-Israel liberals have offered to stem that tide.
As showcased in Part 1 yesterday, our series includes never-before-seen interviews with progressive dissidents on the Left including Muslims who openly attack the leaders of the anti-Semitic movement. The series shows how the anti-Semitic Left has succeeded in inserting blatantly anti-Semitic issues—from BDS to anti-Zionism—into the established, progressive, Leftist agenda. The film highlights the bigotry of anti-Semitic national Women's March leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, as well as showcasing the courageous voices of progressive leaders like Nisi Jacobs (Founder - Women 4 All), Yasmine Mohammed (Author – Confessions of an Ex-Muslim), Hen Mazzig (Israeli Speaker and Advocate – Zig-Zag Initiative), Anila Ali (CEO - American Muslim Women's Empowerment Council) and Debbie Hall (Freelance Journalist).
The rise of anti-Semitism internationally has been the highest since World War II. Its infectious entry into the U.S. political system is a warning for us all.
