We first reported on Bill Kristol and Gary Bauer's Emergency Committee for Israeli when they launched their attack ads against Represenative Joe Sestak. As Greg Sargent reports in the Washington Post blog, they have moved on to new Democratic members of Congress and they continue to be upfront about their goals. As relaid to Sargent by the Committee's spokesman, Michael Goldfarb,"Members of Congress should know that voters will hold them accountable for signing anti-Israel letters or doing anything else to undermine the US-Israel relationship." Yes, do anything that can be construed as anti-Israeli by right-wing neocons and their evangelical friends, and you will be targeted. While their extremism is being challenged by those in the pro-peace camp, we certainly hope their intimidation tactics prove unsuccessful in November.
