He wrote that he's "one of those American Jews who opposes the occupation, laments Israel’s anti-democratic drift, and doesn't regard the country as especially central to my Jewish identity."

The tweet continues, "And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us hooked-nosed."
