Democrat internal polling released over the summer showed that members of the so-called “Jihad Squad” were so unpopular that it could have an effect on the 2020 presidential race. The Axios organization reported that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was recognized by 74 percent of voters in the poll – but just 22 percent had a favorable view of her. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was recognized by 53 percent of voters, with just 9% having a favorable view.
"Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%," Axios added, whereas "capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable."
Meanwhile, a poll from Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's own district found that she had a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (51 percent) to favorable (21 percent), with 33 percent saying they would be ready to vote against her, and only 13 percent prepared to re-elect her.
Polling figures released by the Hudson Institute indicated that 75 percent of American voters support Israel and say that it is in America’s best interest to have the Jewish State as our closest ally in the Middle East.
60 percent of American voters agreed that anti-Semitism is happening more frequently today than 15 years ago – with most blaming anti-Semitism in the United States on Muslim extremists (37 percent), followed by right-win extremists (28 percent), and then left-wing extremists (22 percent). That’s nearly 60 percent of American voters who disagree with the assessment of Democrat Congressman Tom Malinowksi, who solely blames right-wing extremism for the rise.
A majority of American voters told pollsters that the BDS movement – a central plank in the ideology of the so-called “Jihad Squad” – is anti-Semitic. Most American voters believe the United States should stand with Israel in opposing the BDS movement that is supported by groups like CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) and their allies, like Linda Sarsour and Action Together.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) notes: The campaign to delegitimize Israel is being waged across the globe: The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), which rejects Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, is the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence. The BDS campaign is rampant with misinformation and distortion. ADL responds to BDS threats through advocacy and education, and we recently partnered with Reut Institute to develop in-depth analysis and strategic initiatives to marginalize and expose the illegitimacy of the BDS movement.
Advocates of BDS target multinational companies, college communities and well-known institutions, meaning it touches almost everyone. College and university campuses have become battlegrounds.
Some pro-BDS activists have indulged in the most bizarre and repulsive kinds of anti-Semitic propaganda, like the statement pictured above. And yet, when pro-BDS groups like CAIR and Action Together invade college campuses and meetings of their trustees, those institutions do little to fight back.
Americans applaud actions like that taken by the German government earlier this year, which passed a resolution condemning the BDS movement, comparing it to Nazi-era campaigns against Jewish businesses. So why are we not hearing more about this from Republicans in New Jersey? Do voters here support the BDS movement? Are New Jersey voters more anti-Semitic than elsewhere in the United States? Why are Republicans so unwilling to take up this battle when fighting anti-Semitism is so obviously the right thing to do?
And what’s up with the Democrats?
No less than eight Democrats who are running for the New Jersey Legislature this year have been clearly identified as members of the far-Left Action Together New Jersey on the group’s website. They are Stacey Gunderman, Lisa Mandelblatt, Deana Lykins, Lisa Bhimani, Darcy Draeger, Christine Clark, Laura Fortgang, and Steven Farkas.
On February 10, 2018, Action Together New Jersey accepted an award from Linda Sarsour. Accepting the award was Action Together New Jersey’s Executive Director, Uyen “Winn” Khuong; Action Together New Jersey’s Sussex County Co-Chair, Johannah Hinksmon; and Action Together New Jersey’s Director of Operations, Kim Baron.
Linda Sarsour is the controversial Democrat activist who has praised the notoriously anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, cop-killer Joanne Chesimard, and the anti-Semitic BDS movement. In 2017, Sarsour famously called for “Jihad” against the elected government of the United States of America…
The award was in recognition of voter registration drives and other political campaigning done by Action Together New Jersey in coordination with a group called CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Presenting the award was CAIR National Chairwoman, Roula Allouch, and CAIR-NJ Founder, Ahmed Al Shehab.
Due to its apparent ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, one of America’s most important Islamic allies – the United Arab Emirates – has designated CAIR a terrorist organization.
Action Together New Jersey is in the forefront of the drive to push the Democrat Party in New Jersey to the far-Left. They have joined CAIR in opposing the bi-partisan efforts of New Jersey Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-5) to push back on members of the so-called “Jihad Squad” (far-Left Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib) in their attempt to promote the anti-Semitic BDS movement.
Why are these Democrats in bed with pro-BDS movement members of Congress when opposing BDS is the morally right thing to do? What is wrong with New Jersey Democrats and their failure to recognize the anti-Semitism of their “heroes”?
Opposing BDS and those who support it is the morally right thing to do and the politically sensible thing to do.
