The Jewish supremacist Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has arrogantly demanded that the U.S. Democratic Party not elect a new leader of its national committee simply because he has dared ask why American foreign policy is subservient to Israel.
ADL head Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison’s bid to run the Democratic Party could not go ahead because of “deeply disturbing and disqualifying” comments about Israel.
Greenblatt said that Ellison could not “faithfully represent the Democratic Party’s traditional support for a strong and secure Israel” because of a 2010 speech in which the congressman asked why “United States’ foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of 7 million people.”
“A region of 350 million all turns on a country of 7 million. Does that make sense? Is that logic? Right?” Ellison said in an audio copy released of the speech in question.
Ellison—the first Muslim elected to Congress—is a current frontrunner to lead the Democratic National Committee (DNC) after its previous leader was forced to resign.
Greenblatt’s statement accuses Ellison of raising “the specter of age-old stereotypes about Jewish control of our government.”
“It is very disturbing that someone who has been excessively critical of the State of Israel at key junctures in recent history might become the titular head of the Democratic party,” Greenblatt said.
Other Ellison sins listed by Greenblatt include voting against the U.S. providing supplemental funding for Israel’s anti-missile Iron Dome program, criticizing Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza, and supporting the Iran “nuclear” deal.
“These positions alone raise questions about where Rep. Ellison would take the party,” Greenblatt said, revealing that the Jewish Supremacists have only one loyalty—to Israel and nothing else.
“As chairman, would he ensure that the Democratic party prioritize its historic support for the Jewish state? In the event of a future conflict, would he ignore Israel’s legitimate security considerations?” Greenblatt continued.
The ADL head ended off his statement with a demand that the DNC swear fealty to Israel and that all future leaders bow down to the Jewish lobby:
“All of these factors make it more imperative than ever that the Democratic Party reinvigorate its support of Israel and the historic bipartisan commitment to the Jewish state . . . All aspirants for the DNC chairmanship should explain where they stand on this foreign policy priority.”
Ellison obviously understands that having the Jewish supremacists line up against him is a serious impediment to his election chances, and in an open letter posted on his Twitter account, he immediately fell into line and practically begged forgiveness from the Jews.
“I am a strong supporter of the Jewish state, voting for more than $27 billion in aid to Israel,” Ellison said, adding that he was committed to the safety and security of the Jewish State.
“I wish we could have spoken once again before your most recent statement. If given the opportunity, I could have provided a full and proper explanation,” Ellison wrote, adding that he is “saddened” by the ADL’s statement but looks forward to working with them.
His letter argues that the audio of his 2010 speech was “selectively edited and taken out of context by an individual the Southern Poverty Law Center has called an “anti-Muslim extremist.'”
“My memory is that I was responding to a question about how Americans with roots in the Middle East could engage in the political process in a more effective way. My advice was simply to get involved,” he said.
