  • Lawmakers Describe 'Being Slimed in the Green Zone'

    The sheets of paper seemed to be everywhere the lawmakers went in the Green Zone, distributed to Iraqi officials, U.S. officials and uniformed military of no particular rank. So when Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) asked a soldier last weekend just what he was holding, the congressman was taken aback to find out.

    Ombudsman The 'News' on Rep. Moran By Michael Getler Sunday, June 13, 2004; Page B06 Rep. James P. Moran Jr., the Northern Virginia Democrat who won a primary battle Tuesday, has been involved in so many financial, ethical and personal scrapes during his seven terms in Congress that it would seem hard to be unfair to him. Yet many readers, and I'm one of them, felt The Post was unfair in its recent coverage. Metro editors at The Post strongly disagree. On Friday, June 4, four days before the 8th District primary between Moran and political newcomer Andrew M. Rosenberg,...

    "After the worst week of his often tumultuous 20 years in politics, a tearful and weary U.S. Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D) returned yesterday to the Northern Virginians who know him best, trying yet again to reestablish himself with voters after suggesting that Jews were pushing the nation into war with Iraq." Snip "'When you go through a week like I've been through, you can handle that. But when it comes to family, that's when it hits you,' Moran said as he broke into sobs.

    Richmond, Virginia and Washington, DC – Jim Moran, a Democratic congressman from Virginia, has a reputation for leading with his mouth. His latest bon mot, however, could cost him his seat. On March 3rd, the pugilistic Irish Catholic suggested that the looming war with Iraq was the handiwork of the American Jews. “If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq,” he argued, “we would not be doing this.” It has taken time for Mr Moran's comments to work their way into mainstream Washington politics, and he has already issued several apologies....

    Push to blame the Iraq war on "Jewish influence" sounds a familiar theme | A few months ago, a great deal of tut-tutting and dignified outrage emanated from much of the civilized world over the broadcast of a series on Egyptian television which sought to dramatize the "truth" of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. But, as the debate over President Bush's rightful determination to pursue war against the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein heats up, it looks like the dimwitted propagandists who write scripts for Egyptian potboilers have been sharing sources with prominent Washington pundits, leftist anti-war...

    Every few days I become re-amazed, saddened and fearful at the solid and valuable institutions that are being damaged and perhaps destroyed by the march to war that started on September 11, 2001. As a supporter of the president, and a grim but determined endorser of war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq, I recognize that mine is one of the many hands holding up the chisel against those institutions. But I wonder whether we will be able to build new structures half as serviceable and enduring as those we may be in the process of destroying. Of course, I have in...

Jim Moran (D-Va.) not to seek re-election next year, as at least one notable state lawmaker said she is weighing an intraparty challenge against the embattled seven-term Congressman. In a letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif), Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman (Calif.), Martin Frost (Texas), Tom Lantos (Calif.), Sander Levin (Mich.), Ben Cardin (Md.) and Nita Lowey (N.Y.) wrote that they "cannot and will not support" Moran’s candidacy in 2004.

    Capitol Hill ( - Conservatives Tuesday criticized the muted response from the Democratic leadership in Congress to allegedly anti-Semitic remarks made by Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) compared to their outcry over racially insensitive remarks last year by then-Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.). Former Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer, who now heads a group called American Values, has written House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), asking her to "publicly disavow the anti-Semitic slander of Rep. Jim Moran." At a March 3 anti-war forum in Reston, Va., Moran seemed to blame America's Jewish community for the looming war with Iraq. "If...

It wasn't the first time the cops had shown up. "There was always a lot of screaming going on there," said one neighbor. "They fought like cats and dogs." Mary Moran called the Alexandria police that June night and...

    Despicably, a Democratic congressman recently blamed Jews for the impending war with Iraq. Rep. Jim Moran, who represents voters from the Virginia suburbs around Washington, D.C., told a local audience: "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this." Then, playing to stereotypes of Jewish control, Moran claimed that "the leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should." Moran isn't just some backwater politician. He was elected to his seventh...

    NANCY AND THE RENEGADEAccording to a Democratic House leadership staffer, leader Nancy Pelosi declined the requests of several moderate Democrats, Reps. Steny Hoyer and Martin Frost included, to begin increasing the heat on Virginia Rep. Jim Moran for his anti-Semitic comments made to a community group last week. "They wanted her to begin doing to him what Republicans did to Senator Lott, begin pushing him out," says the staffer. "But she wouldn't do it." Pelosi, like Moran, is now very visibly opposed to the Bush Iraq policy, and thus far has refused almost every moderate entreaty for her to...

    Anti-Semitic Democrat James Moran Meant It March 11, 2003 My friends, how about the Democrat congressman, Virginia's Jim Moran, having a Trent Lott moment out there? Jewish organizations have condemned him. They did so for his delivery of anti-Semitic remarks at an anti-war forum in Reston, Virginia, where he suggested that American Jews are responsible for pushing the country to war with Iraq and that Jewish leaders could prevent war if they wanted to do so. Moran said, "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing...

    Six House Democrats Say Virginia Lawmaker Should Not Seek Re-Election The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - Six Democratic House members called on Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., not to seek re-election in 2004 in the wake of controversial comments about Jews and the possibility of war with Iraq. Moran's comments are "not merely wrong, offensive and ignorant," the six, all Jewish lawmakers, wrote in a letter Wednesday, "They are grossly irresponsible, and were given at a sensitive time when inflammatory comments - regardless of outrageous factual flaws - can unleash unintended and dangerous consequences." Moran's office had no immediate comment. The...

    What do Sen. Carl Levin, author Michael Lerner, activist Phyllis Bennis, opinion journalist Bruce Shapiro, and civil-rights advocate Michael Ratner have in common? All are among the veritable phalanx of liberal Jews who are at the forefront of the movement to stop President Bush from using military force to topple dictator Saddam Hussein. So how is it that Rep. James Moran (D., Va.) can think, much less say: "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this."?

    WASHINGTON (GOPUSA News) -- For the second day in a row, the White House had harsh criticism for a Democrat Congressman's offensive remarks. On Tuesday, Spokesman Ari Fleischer condemned Rep. Jim Moran, Jr. (D-VA) who told a community group that the push for war with Iraq was strongly influenced by American Jews. "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq we would not be doing this," Moran said.

    OUR VIEW THAT Rep. James P. Moran Jr. is unfit to serve in Congress is not new. Last July, citing Mr. Moran's ethical obtuseness, we urged Democrats in Alexandria and surrounding neighborhoods to find another candidate for the fall election. Now, by blaming American Jews for an Iraq policy he opposes, the seven-term congressman has confirmed our opinion about him. House Democratic leaders quickly dissociated themselves from his remark; it will be interesting to see whether they, and Northern Virginia Democrats, will make an effort to find a better candidate to run in 2004. Meanwhile it may be useful to...

The lawmaker, Representative James P. Moran of Virginia, said at an Episcopal Church forum on March 3 that Jewish leaders were influential enough to push the nation toward war.
