Jewish Democrats punch back: We reported two weeks ago that Jewish Republicans launched an ad campaign depicting Democrats as adrift on Israel. The Jewish Democratic Council of America, the Republican Jewish Coalition’s counterpart, hit back this week with a video that calls Trump the “biggest threat” to American Jews, accusing the president of allowing right-wing anti-Semitism to fester. That’s going to be the Jewish campaign: Republicans targeting Democrats on Israel, Democrats hitting back on Trump and bigotry.
