    Three of the four Democratic debates saw no mention of Israel/Palestine, but Klobuchar raised the issue incidentally in regards Trump's betrayal of the Kurds:

    Progressives reject Klobuchar’s salute to Israel as ‘beacon of democracy’ – Mondoweiss

    "… Think about our other allies, Israel. How do they feel right now? Donald Trump is not true to his word when they are a beacon of democracy in the Mideast. Think about our allies in Europe when he pulls out of the Iranian agreement and [leaves] them holding the bag and gives the power to China and Russia."

    Israel is not a beacon of democracy; it is a racist, apartheid state based on the logic of Zionism which is to simply replace Palestinians with Jews.

    Millions of Palestinians currently live under Israeli control without any political rights. Democrats like Klobuchar and Pelosi are oblivious to the fact occupation and apartheid are not so consistent with democracy

    Klobuchar must have been heading to the temple for their quarterly shakedown when she made that statement. What else could it be? Everyone knows high level Democrats hate Jews.

    Klobuchar might have had Evangelical votes in mind when she brought up Israel; what actions have "high level Democrats" taken that makes you think they hate Jews?

    Israel is certainly a light in the darkness in that area.

    Before we embraced Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East. Period.

    Everything about Israel being our greatest ally in the ME and a light in the darkness is certainly true but the Democratic anti simitic rhetoric started with Sharpton and Jackson and continued right up to Obama, Talaib and Omar.
