  1. To say that diplomatic engagement amounts to antisemitism is a ridiculous Fox talking point.
    Plenty of Jewish folks, myself included, abhor Likud and Netanyahu and strive for peaceful relations for our country withnALL countries.

  2. Casey is a disgrace- He is what trump would refer to as a political whore. His support of Obama’s reckless policy harms our Nation and our allies. Casey represents the very worst in ouR politics. he obviously has no issue with Obama’s anti semetic anti Israel posture. DEFEAT CASEY
