Ever since the Hamas attacks on Israel earlier this month, we have seen repeated examples of people and groups on the left supporting Hamas and decrying Israel.
Whether it’s on the campus of elite universities or in our cities, the rhetoric from the left has been shocking in degree and scope.
Conservative playwright David Mamet, who is Jewish has seen enough and he is disgusted.
He writes at Unherd:
Why do Jews vote Democratic? Partly from tradition — conservatives have heard a Liberal Jew, when asked to defend or explain various absurd or inconsistent Democratic positions, shrug and joke: “I’m a Congenital Democrat.” I understand, for I was one, too.
But there is no more cosy mystery in the antisemitism of the Democratic Party; Representatives are affiliated with the Democratic Socialists and pro-Palestinians, calling for the end of the state of Israel — that is, for the death of the Jews. And Democrat Representatives repeat and refuse to retract the libel that Israel bombed a hospital, in spite of absolute proof to the contrary, and will not call out the unutterable atrocities of Hamas. The writing is on the wall. In blood…
Many good German Jews in the Thirties ignored their brothers and sisters to the East, and later died with them. My generation, born right after the Holocaust, wondered: “Good God, didn’t you see what was happening around you? Are you literally willing to die rather than admit you were mistaken?” The answer, today, to many liberal American Jews, is “Yes”.
In response, the world’s Leftist media calls for the chastisement of Israel and support for Palestine, while those who consider themselves mere “liberals” moderate their cowardice by calling for a “ceasefire” — which is to say, a pause while Hamas re-arms.
‘Democratic Socialists are calling for the end of the State of Israel — that is, for the Death of the Jews.’
Jews can no longer trust the Democratic Party, says David Mamet: https://t.co/TTUM1C6Wss

There was once a time when the ‘Democratic Socialists’ were a fringe element among Democrats. Today, they make up much of the party’s base. Their unwillingness to call out Hamas is so telling about who they really are.
