Jewish Refugee Flows Could Intensify in 2020

Linda Sarsour gets NYC Jewish Democrat Councilman kicked off committee for saying “Palestine does not exist”
A quote from an editorial elsewhere:
Foreign policy has long been a theme of New York politics, and in years past, mayoral hopefuls often felt they had to demonstrate their support for the three “I’s”: Israel, Ireland and Italy. But if support for “Palestine,” whether alongside or replacing Israel, is now a requirement, Sarsour is right about a sea change in the city’s politics and that of the Democratic Party that dominates it. Now that the same party that shielded Omar has punished Yeger, it certainly won’t strengthen the Democrats’ efforts to be considered a pro-Israel party.
Who could have predicted this outcome?
