In case you missed it over the weekend, I want to take the liberty of noting my City Journal column “A question for Democrats.” In the column I posed the question raised by Ilhan Omar to prominent Minnesota Democrats. I added a footnote to the City Journal column with Moynihan’s answer to the question in the post “Return of ‘Zionism is racism.'”
Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is running for reelection with a 70 percent approval rating. She fancies herself a Democratic Party leader and holds herself out as a friend of Israel, unless party loyalty dictates otherwise. She could easily have answered my question at no cost to her reelection efforts, but she prefers to exercise her right to remain silent. To say the least, she is all profile and no courage.
