Mainers who hate Israel should vote for Betsy Sweet

Betsy Sweet hopes to obtain the endorsement of the Maine Democratic Senatorial party. She has already happily accepted the support of the four Democratic US Reps elected in 2016. The four recently introduced legislation to recognize the BDS movement. Those who agree with this anti-Israel platform should not have the nerve–the chutzpah–to ask for contributions from the rest of us.

I have tried repeatedly in recent weeks to get elaborations on the Representatives’ positions. I got nowhere. Not even a phone number.

Neither Senator Collins nor her principal challenger, Speaker of the House Sara Gideon, would ever entertain such hatred of Israel. Their positions on most issues differ, but not on supporting Israel’s right to exist.

Decent voters of whatever party should not vote for Betsy Sweet.
