J Street Jan Schakowsky attacks former rival Joel Pollak for being 'Orthodox' Jew

Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-Il) thanked J Street for backing her Congressional campaign in 2010, and took the opportunity to attack her long-gone rival Joel Pollak for being 'Orthodox.' Pollak has moved to California and become an editor at Breitbart.com (Hat Tip: Mike P).
Schakowsky begins by thanking J Street for its backing of her positions when it comes to Israel.
“I’d like to begin with just a great thank you for J Street. I have to tell you that the courage to take positions that I’ve been able to take are [sic] really because of the space that, in a very short time, J Street had opened for members of Congress to expand political discussion about the State of Israel and our relationship to it.”
In the video—which was provided by Paul Miller, who served as a senior policy adviser for Pollak’s campaign and is now the executive director of the Salomon Center—the Democratic Rep. from Illinois rips into the Breitbart editor.
“In 2010, I had an election… an election within our community. That is, I ran against a Jewish-Orthodox, Tea Party Republican who made it very clear that actually Jan Schakowsky was anti-Israel because of the positions that she took,” the Congresswoman said of Pollak.
“J Street came to my rescue,” she added. “Not just with money, but with the kind of moral support that was able to assure a substantial victory in that election.”
Schakowsky represents a heavily Jewish district in the Chicago area. I hope that any Orthodox Jewish constituents will  respond to her. She's disgusting.

Did you hear what Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in his speech declaring for President 2016? Something like (MT) Imagine an America that stand with Israel again. Focus on getting to know your allies, which is almost all of the Americans, who, while currently whipped into submission, can be revved up again... almost all Americans (which would be Israel's friends and who see Israel as family) want ZERO to do with hideous politics, but ignoring politics has brought us here. People are starting to realize. And don't forget about the swaths of people who support Israel in any number of ways, not theatrically visible like this Jstreet/NIF undermining, every day.

The Democrats have taken the gloves off. They are now mimicking Iranian hate speech. They will start calling for a new holocaust soon. I hope American Jews have up to date passports because as unpleasant as fleeing America will be it's better than being 'relocated' to a camp out in the wilderness courtesy of Obama.

It's time to institute a new Jewish tradition - Excommunication of the way too many traitors in our midst.
