Democratic official's shock emails: Israel guilty of "crimes against humanity"
July 2, 2012
Local Democrats are in an uproar about a series of emails about Israel, sent last year by one of their representatives to the Democratic National Committee, and a candidate for state representative.
In the emails, Evelyn Garcia, one of Palm Beach County's representatives to the DNC, a Democratic Executive Committee member, and a candidate for State House, District 88, accuses Israel of "crimes against humanity" and of running "mass concentration prison camps".
The email exchange began with Garcia forwarding an email by Code Pink, "Time for a New
Middle East Policy," which announced a conference opposing President Obama's pandering to the, "pro-occupation lobby."
