Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), speaking at a training session for Jewish Democrats at the Democratic National Convention on Monday, said Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren has called Republicans “dangerous for Israel,” the Washington Examiner reported.

Oren denied the Democratic National Committee chair’s account in a statement Tuesday.

“I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel,” he said. “Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

The Examiner quoted Wasserman Schultz as saying the following at the Monday session: “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

    Wasserman-Schultz is the poster-child for Bibi’s question, the “Have You No Shame?” speech delivered in New York to the United Nations General Assembly and its NAZI bloc: (“Nations Against Zionist Israel”).

    Abusing her DNC office to engage in personal attscks against fellow Floridian and Congressman Allen West, against House Rules, she repeatedly demonstrates contempt for even a modicum of civil discourse, and total disregard for the truth when she feels the slightest political gain, forever claiming to a lapdog media she was misunderstood.
