(TargetLiberty.org) – Democratic senator and failed presidential-wannabe Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came under fire on social media this week, after trying to meddle with Israel’s internal politics.
In an April 19 online conference with J Street, a left-wing group that’s frequently critical of Israel, Warren called on Israeli political parties to depose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Prime Minister was asked to form a government by Israel’s president earlier this month, after his Likud party won the most seats in a March general election. Warren’s comments were seen by many as an attempt to ignore Israel’s democratic election results.
Just vaulting clear over that line, isn't she https://t.co/U3qHFC6wtZ

Warren was immediately slammed by many Israelis, including political opponents of Netanyahu, who said it was “inappropriate” of her to interfere in another country’s elections. Dani Dayan, a former Israeli consul-general in New York, called her meddling “improper” and “counter-productive,” as Israelis united behind Netanyahu in protest at foreign interference. Another Twitter user pointed out Warren’s hypocrisy, reminding her that she’s complained about alleged foreign interference in US elections.
