The New York Jewish Week’s James Besser weighed in on NJDC’s call for Marcy Winograd to adopt mainstream positions on Israel: Besser wrote:
“You don’t hear many congressional candidates campaigning on a platform that includes a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but that’s what’s happening in California – and the National Jewish Democratic Council isn’t very happy with the Democratic hopeful who’s pitching that line.
“Marcy Winograd’s campaign to unseat Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif) in next week’s Democratic primary has been sputtering badly, according to the LA Weekly, and she apparently hopes attacking Israel will give her dark-horse campaign some traction.”
”… [Does] Winograd mean hostility to Israel [is] catching on in a political mainstream where it has been largely taboo for years? I don’t think so; the overwhelming majority of incumbents and challengers in both parties stick pretty close to AIPAC talking points whenever the subject of the Middle East comes up.
“And Winograd looks like she’s on track for a crushing defeat, according to some polls.”
