The Emergency Committee for Israel has launched a highly critical video condemning anti-Semitic sentiment during the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests and calling for Democratic leaders to stop supporting the movement.

In the video, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is seen in an interview saying she supports the protesters, and President Barack Obama is shown expressing his understanding for the "frustration" of those camping out in a park in New York and in other staging locations across the nation.

The video ends with the statement: "Hate is not an American value."

Story continues below the video.





Israel Today recently reported that there were anti-Semitic comments made by OWS protesters around the nation:

"In Los Angeles, protester Patricia McAllister, who identified herself as an employee of the Los Angeles Unified School District (we can only hope she is not an educator), had this to say:

"I think that the Zionist Jews, who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve, which is not run by the federal government . . . they need to be run out of this country.

"On the American Nazi Party website, leader Rocky Suhayda voiced support for 'Occupy Wall St.' and asked, “Who hold the wealth and power in this country? The Judeo-Capitalists. Who is therefore the #1 enemy who makes this filth happen? The Judeo-Capitalists.

"One of [the] people reportedly responsible for organizing the 'Occupy Wall St.' protests, Adbusters editor Kalle Lasn, has a history of perpetuating conspiracy theories that say the Jews control America’s foreign policies."

On Monday, the Anti-Defamation League also called for OWS to condemn "biggoted statements" among their participants.

The conservative Emergency Committee for Israel, in its video, calls for liberals to condemn the sentiments and speak out against them.

It has some heavy hitters on its board of directors, including William Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard; Gary Bauer, under secretary of Education during President Ronald Reagan’s administration who also served as Reagan's chief domestic policy advisor; and Rachel Abrams, a writer and activist living in Washington, D.C., whose work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal and other publications including The Weekly Standard.
