Trump adviser says Democrats must condemn Israel flag-burning

Trump’s Jewish adviser Jason Greenblatt says the Democrats must condemn the burning of Israeli and US flags by protesters on Tuesday night outside the national convention in Philadelphia.

“Why, then, have the Democratic National Committee and its presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, failed to condemn the desecration of the American and Israeli flags and the glorification of the Palestinian intifada mere feet away from their convention hall?” he writes in a post on Medium.

“Their silence is deafening. The DNC and Secretary Clinton must speak out against this shameful desecration promptly and unequivocally!”
