Senator Ted Cruz slammed his 2018 midterm opponent Beto O’Rourke over the weekend; accusing the potential Democratic presidential candidate of “courting the anti-Semitic left” in his recent campaign speeches.
“This is today’s Democratic Party: Viciously attacking the duly elected leader of Israel & falsely labeling him a racist for defending the Jewish people. There was a time when support for Israel was rightly bipartisan. But then the Dems began courting the anti-Semitic Left,” posted Cruz on social media.

ANTIFA FAIL: DC Restaurant Confirms Cruz Returned After Attack, Finished ‘Exceptional’ Dinner
A spokesperson for the DC-area restaurant where Ted Cruz was confronted by Antifa activists Monday night confirmed the Texas Senator returned minutes after the attack; saying the lawmaker and his wife were able to “finish their exceptional meal” in silence.
The local eatery posted an official statement regarding the confrontation after video of the incident surfaced on social media, saying “Last night, protesters entered Fiola with the apparent purpose of confronting one of our guests.”
“When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal,” added the statement.

‘USEFUL IDIOTS’: Cruz TRASHES UN for Saying Israel Used ‘Excessive Force’ Against Terrorists
Sen. Ted Cruz unloaded on the United Nations Human Rights Council this week after the group published a scathing report blaming Israel for using “excessive force” against Hamas-backed terrorists during a nine-month period.
This U.N. report is on its face absurd and dishonest and we know because they have been doing it for a long time,” said Cruz during a teleconference with the Jewish Institute for the National Security of America.
“Hamas and Hezbollah use human shields as a deliberate tactic. They use innocent Palestinian civilians, to put them in harm’s way, because they intend to exploit those human shields for when they are injured or killed when Israel defends itself,” he added.
“It is a repeated and deliberate strategy of Hamas to use human shields,” said the Texas lawmaker. “The U.N. report ignores that reality.”
