Will Pols Condemn Anti-Semitism at “Occupy Wall Street”?

As Abe wrote earlier this week, anti-Semitic incidents have been a dark trend at the Occupy Wall Street protests. The Emergency Committee for Israel highlights several of the assaults in its latest web video, and combined with the haunting music and approving quotes from Democrats it makes for a very powerful and disturbing message:

ECI is calling on politicians who have supported the protests, like President Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, to condemn the displays of anti-Semitism.

“It’s not surprising that elements of the modern left are anti-Semitic,” said ECI chairman William Kristol in a statement. “It is surprising that respectable liberals have praised the protesters while ignoring the anti-Semitism. Liberals have pretended to see nothing hateful and hear nothing hateful, and therefore have said nothing to rebuke their allies. Will they now speak up?”

The Daily Caller reported earlier today that the Anti-Defamation League is also monitoring anti-Semitic incidents at the “Occupy” protests.
