Democrat Leader Calls Israeli Leader “Arrogant” and says He Doesn’t “Speak for Her”

Hearing Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) call anyone “arrogant” is funny, because the irony in the statement is just so thick. Here is a woman who has, for years, been name-calling and demonizing her Republican counterparts while also belittling our beliefs and philosophies. And she has the audacity to call the leader of one of our closest allies “arrogant.” For years, these same Democrats have dictated to Israel, telling the only Western democracy in the Middle East what they can and can’t do with their own nation to protect themselves… and now one of these foolish Democrats is calling their representative “arrogant’? If the situation weren’t so disgustingly maddening, it could be the basis for a Hollywood farce.

On CNN’s State of the Union with host Dana Bash, the liberal Democrat from California called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “arrogant” for claiming to speak for Jews, and said that he most certainly doesn’t “speak for her.” What Feinstein fails to recognize is that Netanyahu represents the only Jewish nation in the world and, for that reason, the majority of Jewish people on this planet as well.

On Saturday Netanyahu said, “My responsibility is to worry not only about the state of Israel, but also the future of the Jewish people. And for that reason, we are strongly opposed to the agreement being formulated between the world powers and Iran that could endanger Israel’s very existence.”

To which Feinstein responded Sunday with, “He doesn’t speak for me on this. I think it’s a rather arrogant statement. I think the Jewish community is like any other community. There are different points of view. I think that arrogance does not befit Israel, candidly.”

 

 

As is the wont of most Democrats, Feinstein makes this about herself. Netanyahu never claimed to speak for every Jewish person. He said he was speaking for the world Jewish community. We can all understand that the entire group of ethnic Jews are not monolithic in their political views, but about half of the world’s Jews now live in Israel, and their cultural home is there as well. He has the authority to speak on their behalf… even if Feinstein doesn’t like it.
