The Jewish Daily Forward runs a front-page piece on Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison in which the writer, Nathan Guttman, implicitly praises Ellisons ability to avoid declaring himself pro-Israel:
In a sense, Ellison is walking a tightrope, one that does not place him squarely in either the pro-Israel or anti-Israel camp in Congress. But he says he does not feel any push-back from either side, not even from the pro-Israel lobby, which is often charged with using political strong-arm tactics. I heard talk about that, but I never encountered it, he said.
By maintaining ties with both communities, Ellison believes he can help move Congress to take actions that will promote a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and strengthen the viability of a future Palestinian state. He also thinks lawmakers should send a message to the new government in Israel that the U.S. is committed to a two-state solution.

Keith, the issue is whether the new state can be dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Not an issue to some people.
I don't know how the "Forward" has the chutzpah to call itself "Jewish." They have been freaking Communists for about forever.
