Everybody’s ‘Pro-Israel’ Nowadays
From Republicans to Democrats and Aipac to JStreet almost everybody in the American political mainstream says they’re “pro-Israel” nowadays. Heck, if you define pro-Israel as supporting Israel’s right to exist, even Jimmy Carter and Walt and Mearsheimer would qualify. That’s why Ha’aretz’s Shmuel Rosner wants to ” dump the term.”
“Without specifics, being ‘pro-Israel’ is almost like being pro-great-weather or pro-tasty-food,” Rosner writes in Slate.
