Newly-Elected Progressives Confront AIPAC Test

The question now is whether some of those new faces in Congress, who carried the progressive torch in the campaigns, have the courage of a Kucinich on Israeli matters. Will any of them break the taboo against speaking for Palestine or against AIPAC? Their silence regarding the on-going Israeli assault on Gaza so far is deafening.

"One successful method has been conflating any criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism. This tactic has been most effective in discouraging U.S. politicians from opposing Israel." That's a litmus test for me. Any politician who caves in and agrees with the idea that opposing "Israel" (the political-Zionist Project) is anti-Semitic gets scratched off my list for being completely unworthy. I would never vote for such a person under any circumstances.
