Obama's Losing, Dems Diss Israel

Virginia Liberals Diss Israel

Once upon a time -- oh, say about ten years ago -- support for Israel in America was bi-partisan. But something has changed. Left-wing hostility toward Israel can be measured in polling and through actions.

Two weeks ago, a resolution of support for the state of Israel was offered on the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates. The resolution passed 70-to-2.

A near unanimous vote sounds good, right? But there are 100 members in the House of Delegates. What happened to the missing 28 votes?

Only four Democrats supported the resolution, while most of them literally walked off the floor to avoid the vote. The resolution was brought up a second time and they walked out again. You can watch this display of liberal disrespect for Israel here.
