While she’s pretending to stand up for the rights of the oppressed in American, Nancy Pelosi is busy threatening the last bastion of freedom in the Middle East – Israel.
In a recent statement to the progressive Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA), Pelosi threatened Israel with loss of Democratic support, if plans for annexation of the West Bank are carried through.
In doing so, she joins a long list of oppressive dictators who have criticized, bullied or threatened Israel.
The stakes are high. Pelosi, perhaps pressured by anti-semitic progressives comprising “The Squad,” particularly Rahshida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, seem willing to take the Democratic party further than it’s ever gone before in an anti-Israel direction.
The Middle East Monitor notes:
Pelosi’s warning that further annexation will undermne bipartisan support is also likely to concern many in the pro-Israel camp that view support from the two main parties in the US as being vital to Israel’s interest. Democrats in particular have shown that they are willing to distance themselves from Israel and break up the consensus maintained for decades in Capitol Hill.
Pelosi, like many Democrats, loves to portray herself as the champion of the oppressed. But if the “oppressed” don’t fall into the right interest group, and can’t give her money or votes, she has no problem threatening or abusing them.
Israel is a small nation surrounded by enemies, and built on the contributions of refugees from the Holocaust, one of the most horrific acts of oppression in history. Pelosi’s bullying of the nation stands in sad contrast to President Trump’s support of Israel for the last four years.
