Whither the Democratic Party?

Let's be perfectly clear: The majority, and perhaps even the overwhelming majority, of Democratic legislators are supportive of Israel. There is no denying, however, that there is a growing trend in the party to listen to the voices of the fringe elements in the party who harbor a singular hatred of the Jewish state:

Certainly, as the article points out, the Republicans have their anti-Israeli elements too, but the fact of the matter is that the alliance between the Democrats and certain antiwar groups (Code Pink, International ANSWER, etc.) has fostered a core group of anti-Israeli activits.
