Tom Friedman 2011: "I hope that Israel’s prime minister understands that standing ovation he got in Congress this year wasn't for his politics. That ovation was bought & paid for by the Israel lobby."
Was that an "anti-semitic trope"?
Or is it so only when @IlhanMN says it?

I am so confused. At NO point did @IlhanMN say a damn word about "Jewish money" – she explicitly referred to AIPAC,a self-identified lobby group w tremendous influence that reflects a broken system – one that all junior & seasoned lawmakers alike are aware of and vulnerable to.

AIPAC has always criticized anyone, especially journalists, who dared label it “Jewish lobby”. We are the “pro-Israel lobby”, not Jewish. Without condoning her remarks, it’s remarkable that when @IlhanMN says AIPAC, everyone, including AIPAC, immediately translates to Jews…
