Anti-Israel Representative Woolsey retiring

Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-Ca) is retiring from Congress at the end of the current term.
Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey of California announced Monday that she will not seek re-election next year after serving 20 years in the U.S. House.

"I will turn 75 years old just before the next Election Day, and after two decades of service to this district, it will be time for me to move on," Woolsey told supporters at her home in Petaluma, according to a statement from her office. "And so, with enormous gratitude but not an ounce of regret, I am announcing that I will not run for re-election in 2012. I will retire at the end of my current term."

First elected in 1992, Woolsey has been an anti-war liberal and chaired the Education and Labor Subcommittee on Workforce Protections when Democrats held the majority in the previous Congress.
Good riddance. Woolsey is anti-Israel and - you guessed it - a darling of J Street. She was one of five representatives on J Street's recent trip to Israel and 'Palestine.' You know, the one with which Prime Minister Netanyahu refused to meet.

There's more.

Let's go to the videotape.



Jikileaks adds:
Note Woolsey pumping her hand in the air as Abileah chants to cut US aid to Israel. She then takes the podium and expresses her pride in Abileah's actions.

Woolsey's comments were so outrageous that the National Jewish Democratic Committee demanded her apology. Will J Street condemn or endorse her comments?

NJDC on Rep. Woolsey’s Apparent Support of Netanyahu Speech DisrupterDavid A. Harris — June 23, 2011 – 4:02 pm

It’s deeply unfortunate to see video of Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) turning to the protester who screamed at and disrupted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before Congress and saying, “you made me proud.” Interrupting any dignitary invited to speak before Congress in this way is wrong, especially when it’s the leader of the Jewish State of Israel—the one true democracy in the Middle East, and America’s staunch, strategic ally. On other issues, Woolsey makes us proud, but today she did not. The protester’s rude “protest” was deeply unacceptable and we urge Woolsey to apologize for her remarks in this video.
Like I said: Good riddance.

ST (Similar Topic): here we have JTA, which is supposed to be a Jewish thing, but, like so many of these communal enterprises, is a leftist democrat party apparatus.

So first I see this headline from them on twitter:

State Department: Flotilla is ‘irresponsible’
http://www.jta.org/news/article/2011/06/24/3088291/us-flotilla-is-irresponsible

And I go looking for the story on drudge, cnn, etc. Not a peep. So what we have here is the JTA running interference into the leftist Jewish community to keep donation$ flowing? Because, with the name Audacity of Hope for one of the attacking boats, and with Obama's posse fundraising and joining the thugs attacking Israel, they may need to send out fog to give the Jewish Obama/Clinton supporters some rationalized cover.

And then JTA puts out this admonishment, with not a mention of the hypocrisy of it all:

State Department says Israel not preventing human trafficking
http://www.jta.org/news/article/2011/06/28/3088333/israels-rank-in-annual-us-state-dept-trafficking-report-remains-unchanged

Has JTA ever done a tabloid expose, using the vids of what is going on along the US southern border? Streams of human trafficking... sex slaves, drug transport, etc. But the JTA, being a good democrat party mouthpiece will NOT cover such a thing, since their masters want open borders. Ugh.
