"A new pro-Israel lobbying group has formed in NY State with the explicit intent to oppose NYC-DSA’s electoral campaigns, the first time a pro-Israel group has formed to solely influence state-level politics" (via @email@example.com) https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/12/nyregion/israel-bds-aipac.html
With the explicit intent to oppose BDS and other antisemitism that's taken over the left in the US.
I don't know if it will help, but the status quo is unacceptable and the left hasn't addressed the situation sufficiently.
Perhaps this group will have a right wing bend. If so, that would be in line with what we're seeing from the right, which is an explicit courting of American Jewish voters.
The left needs to make itself welcoming to Jews again.
Let me be clear on this... As Americans go, I'm fairly left wing. I have made my politics clear many times and stand by them.
With that, the left is pushing Jews to the margins. They're supporting hate crimes against us, including violence and murder.
So when a right wing org comes up, the left needs to take action. It needs to rid itself of antisemitism so that Jews feel safe again. Jews have a long history with the left,. It's time for the left to step up for Jews.
