Hear that silence? That's Republican party leaders refusing to say a peep about Bob Traitor Novak's repeated bashing of Israel. Where is the outrage from the right? Are Republican politicians afraid to stand up to Grumpy Bob?
In a release yesterday, NJDC called out GOPers for their silence on this matter. You know, the same people who hem and haw whenever anyone who has ever been in the same room as a Democrat says something remotely questionable on Israel.
In recent columns, Novak has suggested Israel’s policies are “worse than apartheid,” implied that Israel is oppressing Christians, claimed that terror organization Hamas wants peace, and chastised President Bush for failing to pressure the Israeli government.
