The Democrats finally confront military aid to Israel

Sometimes what seems impossible in politics is impossible until it suddenly becomes possible. Such a phenomenon appears to be the case now when it comes to US military aid to Israel.

For such a long time in US politics, providing weapons to Israel unconditionally and in ever greater volume appeared to be nearly sacrosanct, wrapped in the mystique of the supposed “unshakable, unbreakable” bond between the two countries about which politicians of both parties droned ad infinitum.

And, relatedly, even raising questions about the flow of weapons to Israel was widely considered to be the “third rail of US politics”, which if touched would produce instantaneous political electrocution. Only a suicidal politician, it was reasoned by the punditry, would even dare to approach it.
