In a shockingly anti-Semitic move, a resolution from a California Democratic state assemblyman that links the Israeli government to the Oct. 2018 massacre of 11 Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue will reportedly be considered by members of the California Democratic party.

Fox News reports, “The document was one of a slew of secretive, unpublished proposals obtained by Fox News that are slated for debate beginning Friday morning … Tentatively titled ‘Commending the House for resolving to fight all racism and bigotry and for resisting the false conflation of support for Palestinian rights with antisemitism,’ the resolution blasting Israel’s purported role in furthering white supremacy was authored by David Mandel, an elected state Assembly delegate and progressive attorney … “

Fox News continues, “The document calls the October synagogue shooting ‘the culmination of an alarming re-emergence of virulent antisemitism that is a core element of historical and currently resurgent white supremacism in the United States and around the world.’ The ‘Israeli government, along with some of its U.S. backers,’ the resolution continues, ‘welcomed support from Christian fundamentalist and ultra-right groups in the United States and abroad, dangerously ignoring their deeply rooted antisemitism while aligning with their virulent Islamophobia.’”

Mandel told Fox News, “The Israeli government and its supporters here seem to be embracing the right-wing and not caring what they say about anything else — Islamophobia, dog whistles for anti-Semitism. That, I think, does indirectly lead to some of the violence … What we’re saying is the Israeli government is aligning itself with right-wing governments around the world, including in this country, and those right-wing groups — a core tenet of their ideology is antisemitism.”

Mandel boasted, “Most of the 3,000 or 4,000 delegates at the convention will agree with us, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to succeed in passing the resolution.”

Mandel has written on his Facebook site, where a picture of Bernie Sanders is featured, “I frequently advocate at the Capitol for progressive measures of all sorts and against attacks on protected speech, particularly regarding the exceptionalism with which Israel is treated – and Palestinians mistreated. I also work with Jewish Voice for Peace, the National Lawyers Guild and DSA.” His leftist, anti-capitalist perspective is reflected thus: “Together with allies statewide, I’ll fight to make the party more representative, vibrant, small-d democratic and progressive. The goal is not to elect more opportunists who call themselves Democrats; it’s to ally with grassroots progressive social movements throughout the state and country to build a majority for comprehensive transformation to an anti-racist, non-sexist, post-carbon, post-capitalist and peaceful world.”

Mandel said that he created some of his leftist resolutions jointly with Chris Yatooma, Kari Khoury, Yassar Dahbour, Iyad Afalqa, and Murad Sarama, calling it a “team effort.”

Fox News notes, “In 2017, Mandel hastily negotiated with the Rules Committee to secure passage of an unprecedented resolution condemning what it characterized as the U.S. support for Israeli ‘occupation of the Palestinian lands,’ and opposing crackdowns on economic boycotts of Israel.”

Another resolution reportedly to be considered by the Democrats complains about the “untenable status quo – rocket firings into Israel from Gaza, regular air and artillery bombardment of Gaza neighborhoods, and sniper shootings of unarmed civilians at the fence, with hundreds of Palestinians killed and thousands wounded since March 2018.”
