'The Movement Has a Serious Jewish Problem'

Andrea Peyser's column in today's New York Post exposes the anti-Semitism problem at Occupy Wall Street:
Peyser credits the Emergency Committee for Israel for highlighting the anti-Semitism problem rampant at these protests: "It took the Emergency Committee for Israel, whose board includes conservative Weekly Standard editor William Kristol and President Ronald Reagan adviser Gary Bauer, to sound the alarm. The group put out a video calling on Occupy-friendly President Obama and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to condemn anti-Semitism. 'Hate is not an American value,' the video concluded. No reply."
Yet no Democratic politician who has embraced these protests (and there are many!) has singled out the anti-Semitic elements and condemned them.
