Hoping for the best: During a recent event in New York, Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, noted that the 2016 platform eclipsed the GOP’s Israel platform since it included “more in it which was supportive of Israel and in opposition to the BDS movement.” Soifer said the final Democratic platform in 2016 was indicative of strong support for Israel within the party. “If in fact 2020 ends up to be a contentious debate, there will be people there that will continue to ensure that it will end up very similar to how it did in 2016.”
