How local Muslims have manipulated Seattle Democrats, from Max Borders in FrontPage (thanks to EPG):
Muslims in King County are celebrating. In A Call to Action – an email by members of Seattle’s Arab & Muslim Community – the authors write: “our pro-justice position is not a fringe voice held by only the most extreme liberals as some might have us believe, but rather, it is the voice of the majority.” Sadly, this assessment may be correct–at least among Seattle Democrats. According to the Islamic-American group CAIR, the Seattle’s Democratic Party Platform now officially states: “our tax dollars should not go to Israel while it violates international law.”
Greg Rodriguez – Chair of the King County Democratic Party – recently went on a Seattle radio talk show to express “embarrassment” over the one-sided suggestion of punitive action against Israel. But the fact remains: the anti-Israel stance qualified as a plank in the city’s Democratic platform. That means the position must not only have been given serious consideration, but that the world’s only Jewish state had to have been singled out. …
When the Jihadists regard America and Israel, they must continue to see a unified front. Minimally, US aid to Israel signals such unity. More importantly, however, our obligations to our ally rise to the level of moral commitment to a lone democratic island in a sea of Islamist rage–one whose enemies have vowed to push it into the Mediterranean. Continued bi-partisan support for Israel must not splinter in the face of those bent on Israel’s demise, or such enemies will find a way through those very fissures in order to kill us as well. The Democrats should know this.
