DNC Chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz Asks Netanyahu to Gag Republicans Criticism of Obama’s Israel Policies…or Y’see, Bini. We have like this election comin’ and we can’t really have this whole Obama/Israel thing getting in the way
The top official at a Republican Jewish group blasted Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for an “unprecedented and inappropriate” effort to quell partisan debate over Israel in a private meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday at which both were present.
Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks clashed with Wasserman Schultz, as I reported yesterday, after Wasserman Schultz called for partisan unity on matters of Israel policy and Brooks – whose group had criticized her for speaking before the liberal group J Street – responded that he reserved the right to attack Democrats who stray from a hawkish pro-Israel line.
“It’s unprecedented and inappropriate that the chairwoman of the DNC would take advantage of a meeting with a visiting head of state and ask him to put a gag order on Republicans,” Brooks told POLITICO today.
