Who The Leader Of Radical Liberal Group Just Embraced, Kissed Says Everything You Need To Know About Modern Progressivism

(Liberty Bell) – Jeremy Ben-Ami, the leader of radical liberal group J Street, embraced Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in New York on Tuesday and even appeared to give him a little smooch.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect example of the hypocrisy of the left on full display. Liberals claim to be all about doing battle against the evils of racism and inequality, while at the same time embracing anti-Semitism and supporting radical Islamic terrorists in their fight against Israel and their desire to obliterate Jewish folk. How folks on the left manage to avoid being held accountable for their actions is beyond comprehension.

Here’s more on this from Breitbart:

J Street styles itself as “pro-Israel, pro-peace,” but it frequently lobbies against Israel. It has opposed Israeli wars of self-defense against Hamas terrorists, for example, and opposes President Donald Trump’s new peace plan for the Middle East, even though it explicitly endorses the two-state solution, which J Street claims to support.

Abbas, elected in 2005, is now in the 16th year of what was supposed to be a four-year presidential term. He has rejected American and Israeli calls to stop paying stipends to Palestinian terrorists and their families — even though his intransigence has resulted in lowered tax transfers from Israel and the loss of U.S. aid.

The Palestinian president also has a long history of antisemitic rhetoric, including Holocaust denial. In 2018, even J Street felt compelled to condemn Abbas for making antisemitic remarks in a speech to Palestinian leaders (Abbas later apologized).

The question to ask here is how a group can claim to be pro-Israel and yet oppose the country’s right to defend itself against evil that wants to wipe the country off the face of the earth? Also, how can one make this claim while embracing someone who is an enemy of the Jewish people and wants to see them destroyed?

Something is just not computing with this nonsense.

On Tuesday, Abbas denounced Trump’s peace plan — which acknowledges Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, allows Israel to annex parts of Judea and Samaria necessary for its security, and makes Palestinian statehood conditional on a renunciation of terror — at the United Nations Security Council.

Ben-Ami greeted him warmly afterwards, following a press conference Abbas held with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at a Manhattan hotel:

The Republican Jewish Coalition was not at all happy with Ben-Ami’s embrace of Abbas, calling it “absolutely disgusting”:

Over the last decade or so, we’ve seen brazen anti-Semitism from the radical left openly displayed without shame, even from some members of Congress. This is shameful on many levels, not least of all because the nation of Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East and has supported our measures to protect our country from radical terrorist groups who have developed in that area of the world.

It’s a slap in the face to those who survived the Holocaust and who have family members who died during World War II to embrace someone who has more or less picked up Hitler’s mantle of hate. The Republican Jewish Coalition summed it up well. It’s absolutely disgusting.

  1. That is why all anti-Semitic people must be removed from Congress, especially those on Fireign Affairs Committees. It goes against America and the will of American people. Not to mention against God!
