A rare agreement with Trump

Reader comment on item: How Trump Put Netanyahu in an Untenable Position

Submitted by Ron Thompson, Aug 19, 2019 at 13:06

My impression is that you overthought the relatively minor tempest regarding Trump and Netanyahu actions regarding the two unpleasant Muslim congresswomen in your recent Post piece.

Although the optics of BN seeming to cave to Trump weren't good, I agree with the ban (and more so since Tlaib helpfully decided that trying to make Israel look bad was more important than seeing her supposedly beloved grandmother) because I think the two women's identity as Islamic Anti-Semites is more relevant than their identity as US members of Congress.

I regret that the two keep getting away with dishonestly calling Israel's actions "racist" without being criticized for hiding their Anti-Semitism behind the BDS movement.

My own lasting impression of the incident is the ending of any lingering respect I had for Sanders after his over-the-top attack on US aid to Israel.
