Far left Democrats, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Pramila Jayapal, and Betty McCollum are circulating a letter that claims the four and their allies will punish Israel if it goes ahead with extending its sovereignty over its historic heartland.
The letter states:
“Should the Israeli government move forward with the planned annexation with this administration’s acquiescence, we will work to ensure non-recognition as well as pursue conditions on the $3.8 billion U.S. military funding to Israel, including human rights conditions and withholding funds for the off-shore procurement of Israeli weapons equal to or exceeding the amount the Israeli government spends annually to fund the settlements as well as the policies and practices that sustain and enable them.”
While this letter was condemned by AIPAC, this small and extreme group of Democrats are increasing their power within the Democratic Party. More and more older leaders are being displaced by AOC and others. All are backed by the Bernie insurgency that seeks to transform the Democratic Party into a socialist and marxist spearhead within American politics.
President Trump’s increasing precarious political situation is no doubt influencing whether Prime Minister Netanyahu goes forward with sovereignty or waits. After all, Trump could lose and Israel be scapegoated by the next administration if it does go forward with extending its sovereignty.
