Well, it wouldn’t be a Democratic National Convention if some anti-Israel antics didn’t happen. On Tuesday night, a rally for the Free Palestine movement featured an Israeli flag being lit on fire to chants of “Intifada” and “death to the U.S. Empire.”
Clinton’s Jewish outreach director told the Jerusalem Post, Hillary Clinton has always stood against efforts to marginalize Israel and incitement, and she strongly condemns this kind of hatred…burning the Israeli flag is a reckless act that undermines peace and our values."

I know we like to harp on the Democrats booing God at the 2012 convention, which they did, but they also booed Jerusalem be recognized as Israel’s capital as well.
