Chairman of the Arab American Caucus of the Californian Democratic Party Iyad Afalqa slammed Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer on social media, calling him a “shm*ck”, a “traitor” and belonging to a “fascist Israel lobby.”
The original Facebook post, posted on March 27, came after a speech by Schumer the previous day at AIPAC in which he said Democrats must “call out” when people say Jewish-Americans who support Israel are “not loyal to America,” as well as cases when people say there are some “very fine people” in a neo-Nazi rally.
Schumer was referring to comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar and US President Donald Trump.
In his post, Afalqa raged against the comparison between Omar and Trump, saying: “Shm*ck Schumer the traitor whose allegiance is for Fascist Israel lobby who called himself the Guardian of Israel in Congress is attacking Rep Omar who hinted at the big elephant in the room: treason of the Fascist Israel lobby that Schumer belongs to.”
He also claimed that the “highest amount” of money from this “pro-Israel lobby” was given to Schumer to aid in his election campaign.
