If I hear about one more Bible thumping Republi...say what?
"This past Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) delivered a wide-ranging speech at an Orthodox Union event in Washington, D.C."
"Schumer turned his attention to the situation in Gaza. He told the audience that the "Palestinian people still don't believe in the Jewish state, in a two-state solution," and also that "they don't believe in the Torah, in David." He went on to say "you have to force them to say Israel is here to stay."
The Palestinian people are a collection of Jews, Christians, Muslims. All three of those groups not only believe in or give reverence to the Torah, they all look to David as a good man of God. If he's basing decisions on who should or shouldn't receive humanitarian aid based on whether or not they believe in the Torah, then he's no different than those kooks Bachman, Peter King, and others like them.
While I kid with the political angle of assuming a politician using religion for their racism, sexism, etc, is always a Republican, it's disappointing to see that a politician can factually be wrong, blatantly racist, and the news coverage is effectively zero.
I guess Schumer doesn't believe in the Torah either:
"And if your brother becomes poor and is not able to make a living, then you are to help him to survive, helping him and also a proselyte from foreign land who is living among you. (Leviticus, 25:35)"
