Commentary of the Day

soccer dad, on Jonathan Tobin:

What’s surprising about this? Given the support J-Street has from the likes of Lincoln Chafee, one can only conclude that to J-Street the new pro-Israel, is the old anti-Israel.

Freeman, of course, is no leftist. He is cozy with the communist Chinese and the Saudi royal family. So why do these folks like him so much? It can only be due to his strident anti-Israel stands.

But why has the MSM been silent on this appointment? Here we have a guy who’s taken at least $1 million from the Saudis to keep his organization solvent and not one MSM reporter is looking into this apparently huge potential conflict of interest. The favorite epithet the MSM would hurl at George W. Bush was that he was incurious. Regarding Bush’s successor it’s the media that’s incurious.
