Schumer Wants New Elections in…Israel

by Mary Chastain at

I’m biting my tongue out of respect for Professor Jacobson so I don’t unleash my true feelings toward Sen. Chuck Schumer.

But if you follow me on Twitter, you know exactly what I want to say.

Chuckie has so much time on his hands that he felt the need to demand new elections in Israel.

Chuckie is a jerk. I cannot believe he paraphrased a phrase used by antisemites to describe supposed “extremist” Israelis (emphasis mine):

“The Netanyahu coalition no longer fits the needs of Israel after October 7. The world has changed – radically – since then, and the Israeli people are being stifled right now by a governing vision that is stuck in the past,” says Schumer.

Netanyahu has “lost his way, putting himself in coalition with far-right extremists like [Finance Minister] Bezalel Smotrich and [National Security Minister] Itamar Ben-Gvir.”

“Extremist Palestinians and extremist Israelis seek the same goal: from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, they aim to push the other from the land,” Schumer adds.

“If Prime Minister Netanyahu’s current coalition remains in power after the war begins to wind down, and continues to pursue dangerous and inflammatory policies that test existing US standards for assistance, then the United States will have no choice but to play a more active role in shaping Israeli policy by using our leverage to change the present course,” Schumer says in a speech on the Senate floor.
