DNC Head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Demands That Repulicans Not Make an Issue of Israel In 2012

Really. Really.

So, you guys are great on Israel, and obviously then the issue of Israel must help you; that must then by why you are demanding everyone shut up about Israel.

Let me shake the Magic 8-Ball of Plausibility...

OBVIOUSLY CORRECT

There you go. The DNC is trying to declare Israel off-limits as a campaign issue because Democrats would prosper from this issue.

Oh, and they made this demand in their private bipartisan meeting with Netanyahu, trying to get Netanyahu to agree that his country ought not to be an issue.

The RJC used their opening remarks to say that now was a historical time for the future of the Middle East, and to thank Prime Minister Netanyahu for meeting with them. But while the NJDC’s chairman said essentially the same thing, he was followed by hyper-partisan comments, first from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel and then from the DNC chair, Wasserman Schultz.

Sitting in front of Netanyahu, the DNC chair asked the RJC to “pledge to refrain in 2012 from using Israel as part of the issues in campaigns,” according to RJC executive director Matt Brooks. “It started that way. Right from the get go they just jumped on it.”

“They decided to hijack these meeting in order to, in front of the prime minister, put a gag order in effect to prevent us from speaking out on Israel,” Brooks says.

It is highly unusual for a sitting DNC chair to try to use a foreign prime minister to pressure another political group to act in a way that she deems appropriate. But this seems to have been what happened yesterday.

So, did Netanyahu agree to Wasserman-Schultz's plea for help?

No.

Asked about Netanyahu’s reaction, Brooks said Netanyahu was “clearly uncomfortable and at one point said, ‘do you guys want me to leave the room and give you guys some privacy?’”

You know who DWS needs to lobby on this issue? Senators in her own party, who are looking for a way to repudiate President Palisymp on Israel.

Senate Democrats are expected to support a resolution intended as a rebuff to President Obama’s call for basing Middle East peace talks on the 1967 Israeli-Palestinian borders.

It would be a rare rebuke of the president by the upper chamber and a sign that Democrats are worried about the impact of last week’s speech on the U.S.-Israel relationship and pro-Israel constituents.

Democrats in both chambers are scrambling to fix the damage caused when Obama called for the 1967 borders and land swaps as a basis for peace.

Even Harry Reid rebuked Obama at an AIPAC event.

Oh: Since everyone keeps mentioning hot IDF girls.

Thanks to Eye Stallion.
