There was a big rally in Newton, MA., last night with leading political figures in the Jewish community opposing Palestinian statehood. David Harris of the AJC, Barney Frank, state treasurer Steve Grossman (former DNC chair and a big Obama fundraiser), etc. Here are some of the protesters outside. A friend went into the temple to hear the speeches and--
reports: Barney Frank said he will be going to campuses to counter the "left's" understanding of Israel." Because "only Israel passes muster in the Middle East." And Frank equated working for the people who love Israel in his district to working with any other interest group living in the fourth district, e.g., Portuguese.
