Top Democrat in Congress Knifes Israel

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement in response to Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s anti-Israel speech.

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said:

As Israel continues to righteously fight to defend itself from barbaric terrorists, the most powerful Democrat in Congress knifed the Jewish state in the back.

This morning, taking a page from the 2015 Obama playbook, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, delivered a speech in which he demanded that Israel’s democratically-elected government be evicted from power and replaced by one more to his liking.

Senator Schumer crossed a real red line. It is outrageous and unacceptable to meddle in Israel’s domestic politics by demanding that a democratic ally hold elections on our timetable, particularly when the Jewish state is fighting for its very survival.

Senator Schumer has frequently described himself as the so-called “Shomer”, or guardian, of the Jewish people - let there be no doubt that his remarks today were a “Shanda”, a disgrace.

Today’s events serve as a clarion call to take back the White House and US Senate from this radical Democrat leadership, which is waging political warfare on our key ally Israel and rewarding terrorists.
