Their anti-Israel agenda drives the Left

At the Volokh Conspiracy, David Bernstein shows how the Left's reaction to the appointment of Chas Freeman as President Obama's chairman of the National Intelligence Council shows how much the anti-Israel agenda drives the left (Hat Tip: Instapundit):
[A] quick survey of blogs to the left of The New Republic shows that those who have chosen to comment are expressing contentment glee over Freeman's appointment. Why, because he is a "realist" about Israel, a polite way of saying he's expressed a fair amount of hostility both to Israel and its American supporters. Here's The Nation, TPM Cafe's M.J. Rosenberg, and Matthew Yglesias. And these are the folks that claim that Israel-related matters distort the neoconservatives' perspective on world events! In fairness, other liberal blogs are maintaining a studious, perhaps embarrassed, silence. It's entirely possible that some bloggers are mortified by Freeman, but are not prepared to "undermine" Obama and side with his "neoconservative enemies."
There's more. Read the whole thing.

"Neoconservative" is a polite code for Jew. What's driving the Left's agenda is plain old fashioned anti-Semitism. We can drop the semantics of polite society. That's the way it used to talk about blacks when they weren't around to hear what was being said about them.
