Skip to comments.Harris’s Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draw Scrutiny
Posted on 10/15/2020 5:02:03 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harriss ties to a leading anti-Israel group are generating scrutiny among Jewish voters, particularly in Florida, a perennial swing state populated by a large number of staunchly pro-Israel voters.
As Californias attorney general and then as U.S. senator, Harris forged a relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), one of the nations top anti-Israel groups and advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state. CAIR advised Harris on community issues during her time in California politics, and she later offered the group her "gratitude and admiration" in a 2018 personal letter to the group.
Harriss association with CAIR is drawing scrutiny ahead of the 2020 presidential election. While Jewish voters overwhelmingly lean Democratic, the partys recent embrace of anti-Israel causes and activists could make the critical voting bloc think twice. Biden has promised to be a mainstream pro-Israel president, but the Democratic Partys alliance with anti-Israel leaders threatens to pull the candidate leftward, as evidenced by Bidens campaign pledge to confront Israel over its continued building of Jewish homes in disputed areas. Recent national polls show around 30 percent support for Trump among Jewish voters, a number that ranks on the high end historically. And CAIRs support for the Democratic ticket could prove to be a lightning rod for team Biden in states such as Florida, local GOP officials say.
"Every Jewish American should be concerned about a potential vice president who aligns herself with groups that support terrorists," said Randy Fine, a Republican Florida state politician who went toe-to-toe with CAIR on several initiatives. "I dont think we want people in the White House to invite anti-Semites to have a seat at the table."

Everyone knows that the Media-Dem Party NEVER apologizes and NEVER disavows ANY radicals who support them.
Define "recent" in this context.
Go read Carlos the Jackal for his opinion of how to bring down the west.
He acknowledged that Marxism by itself could not bring down the west , nor could islam; but an alliance, a coalition of the two could. Obama was both a marxist and a muslim... and a lying radical at that.
This is what we are witnessing in the blm and antifa movements, they are Hillarys frontline to her resistance
CAIR is the total and final solution.
That is why they married Hitler via the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
Anti-Semitism (under the guise of “Anti-Zionism” and concern for “Palestine”) is both a career-enhancer, and a necessary part of one’s basic toolkit these days, if one wants to be a properly “woke” leftist.
Antisemitic? CAIR is an Islamist terror sponsor.
Cair, an undicted conspirator in a successful fundraising effort for Hamas, a designated terror group, then and now.
BLM, Antifa, CAIR, as they say, show me your friends and I can tell you who you are
I forgot to do the PING! thing the other day.
That sub-human was married???
