Oh my: MSNBC host asks anti-war Congresswoman whether Israel is an obstacle to peace between the US and Iran

Here's a video of MSNBC host Chris Hayes interviewing Representative Barbara Lee (D-Cal). Watch what he asks her starting at 5:58 of the video below.

Let's go to the videotape.

The PJ Tatler has more.

Chag Sameyach - a happy holiday to all of you.

Because the holiday is only one day in Israel, I will be back online Thursday night.

I gotta say, kudos to Barbara Lee on this one.

Hayes noted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “red line” speech last year at the UN. “Is Israel an obstacle to a diplomatic settlement between the U.S. and Iran?” he asked.

“I visited Israel many times. And, of course, Israel quite naturally should be concerned about Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon, just as we should be,” Lee responded. “And so, I believe, as I said earlier, we have to take every step we can to make sure that nonproliferation and the nuclear capability for a bomb is not there. And so, we have to ensure that what the president, our president, the steps that he is taking right now succeed, and that’s going to be a tough road to walk but…”

“Is Israel an obstacle?” Hayes pressed.

“I don’t believe Israel is an obstacle. I believe that the Middle East would be a much safer place if we reduce the tensions and really insist that nuclear weapons become not the weapon of the world,” Lee said. “And that is an extremely important part of our foreign policy that we need to embrace very quickly.”

Lee basically answered Hayes with a "no" twice.

Yes when a Black Female California Democratic Congresswoman is MORE pro Israeli than MSNBC (MSDNC) someone in charge over there needs to take a deep breath and either close up shop or go all in and become Iran's PressTV once and for all.

I'm sorry if the unPCidness of that ruffles anyone's feathers, but come on.
