Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Right Kind of Jews

2161

I’m beginning to think she hates Israel.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has rebuffed requests to meet with New York’s prominent Jewish leaders.

The heads of both the Jewish Community Relations Council and the New York Board of Rabbis said they’ve sought sit-downs with the first-term “Democratic socialist” congresswoman — to no avail.

“I requested a meeting with her and it has not come to fruition,” JCRC executive director Michael Miller told The Post.

“A meeting has been requested on more than one occasion. It hasn’t happened. I’m still interested in meeting with her.”

Miller said he’s had no problem communicating with other members of New York’s congressional delegation.

Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, executive VP of the New York Board of Rabbis, also said the congresswoman has been elusive.

Potasnik said he’s run into AOC at events and requested to meet.

“The first response was, ‘Yes, we will.’ We’re still waiting,” Potasnik said.

Both organizations are supportive of Israel.

Just kidding. We’ve known that for a while, even well before her recent Rabin memorial backtrack. You could even argue it is worse than *just* hatred of Israel.

Incidentally, she has met with some Jews.



Then again, which Israel-hater or antisemite hasn’t?
