A couple of thoughts on @IlhanMN and the Israel lobby...

1. Lobbying is protected by the #FirstAmendment. There's no exception for American Jews....
2. The various pro-#Israel lobbying organizations function no differently than any other lobby. There isn't a shred of evidence of any inappropriate behavior. And there are a lot more lobbies which spend more money in DC....
3. Jews comprise just 2 percent of the US population. There's no way they could influence US policy toward #Israel without the support of vastly larger numbers of non-Jews...
4. And they have that: There's been polling on US attitudes toward #Israel for >50 years, since the Six-Day War. And never -- not once -- has support sunk below 50 percent. Support from Americans for Israel is strong, consistent and genuine.
5. There's not a shred of evidence of subterfuge, secret slush funds, behind the scenes manipulation by @TheMossadIL or any other illegal activity.
6. So any suggestion that there are some kinds of special rules or circumstances under which supporters of #Israel influence US policy IS anti-Semitic and should be condemned as such. /end
