RJC: Democrats Move Further Away From Israel

Washington, DC (July 30, 2018) – In response to polling numbers showing that Democrats do not see Israel as an important partner for American foreign policy, the Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:

“Reports of these polling numbers only serve as confirmation of what we have known for a while – as the far-left takes over the Democrat party, the Democrat party moves further and further away from its historical commitment to a strong US-Israel relationship.

Brooks continued:

“A party cannot be the party of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Keith Ellison, Tom Malinowski, Leslie Cockburn, Linda Sarsour, and dozens of other prominent, anti-Israel voices and still maintain the commitment to a strong US-Israel relationship that Harry S. Truman, Scoop Jackson, and Joe Lieberman instilled in the party. The time is now for pro-Israel Democrats to step up and take back their party.”
