Representative Jim Moran on AIPAC

Ronald Halber, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, responds thusly to Moran’s track record: “There are only so many mistakes he can make before it’s fair to call him an anti-Semite.” (Hat Tip: Extreme Mortman)

What brought that on? Here's what Representative Moran told Tikkun, a California-based Jewish magazine, about the American Israeli Public Affairs Committe (AIPAC):


In an interview with Tikkun, a California-based Jewish magazine, Moran said the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is “the most powerful lobby and has pushed this war from the beginning. I don’t think they represent the mainstream of American Jewish thinking at all, but because they are so well organized, and their members are extraordinarily powerful — most of them are quite wealthy — they have been able to exert power.”
Ah yes! The Jewish Lobby's wealth and power making them omnipotent. Did he leave any stereotypes out?
AIPAC “members are willing to be very generous with their personal wealth. But it’s a two-edged sword. If you cross AIPAC, AIPAC is unforgiving and will destroy you politically. Their means of communications, their ties to certain newspapers and magazines, and to individuals in the media are substantial and intimidating.”
Well, at least he didn't deny the Holocaust.

This is
not the first time Moran has proven himself to be the United States Congress' most visible anti-semite. He has already apologized once and been stripped of a leadership post because of his degenerate beliefs. Why this man continues to be tolerated by the voters in his district is a mystery.

The Washington Post outlines previous Moran controversies:

 
Although hailed for forging ties with the region's Muslim community, Moran has gotten into trouble with the local Jewish community before.

In 2001, he angered groups by saying in an appearance before the American Muslim Council that then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was coming to Washington "probably seeking a warrant from President Bush to kill at will with weapons we have paid for."

The next year, Moran returned $2,000 in political contributions from a Muslim activist with ties to the anti-Israeli groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

And in 2003, at an antiwar forum in Reston, Moran said: "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this. The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should."
The answer to Mr. Halber's question above about how many mistakes Moran can make before we can call him an anti-semite was answered by the Congressman already.

Note: The Congressman is no relation to me and any similarities in our name is nauseatingly coincidental.
