Excerpt: "THERE'S an obvious answer to Democrats who claim John Bolton is too abrasive to succeed as President Bush's U.N. ambassador — he spearheaded the successful fight to get the U.N. to reverse its notorious "Zionism is racism" resolution.

The Anti-Defamation League warmly commended him when he did what many had thought impossible in 1991. ADL chief Abe Foxman wrote a letter backing his so-far stalled nomination as U.N. envoy this spring.

"We will long remember him as a man of principle and integrity who, as assistant secretary of state for international organizations, played a leading role in the successful U.S. effort to repeal the infamous 'Zionism is racism' resolution," he wrote."

Is the reason that there is such animosity and outrage against John Bolton the fact that he won such a pro-Israel victory in 1991?

It is not speculative that there is a anti-semitic theme of leftist politics. Also here

In 2004 U.S. Sen. Ernest "Fritz" Hollings (D-SC), came under fire for remarks he made in an opinion column where he accused President Bush of going to war in Iraq "to secure Israel."

Fast forward to June 15th, 2005, when a few democratic congress members huddled in the White House basement. (hat tip to blogs for bush for this:

" Dana Milbank of the Washington Post wrote:

"The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern...declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases...He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

"Israel is not allowed to be brought up in polite conversation," McGovern said. "The last time I did this, the previous director of Central Intelligence called me anti-Semitic."...

...At Democratic headquarters, where an overflow crowd watched the hearing on television, activists handed out documents repeating two accusations -- that an Israeli company had warning of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and that there was an "insider trading scam" on 9/11 -- that previously has been used to suggest Israel was behind the attacks."

Could it be that the only reason that John Bolton is -in democratic eyes - "not acceptable", simply a fear they have of further favor to Isreal?
