Civil rights lawyer flees questions on Israeli abuses

"This video shows Tom Perez, a leading contender for chair of the Democratic National Committee, ducking questions about Israel’s violations of Palestinian rights. Perez served as labor secretary in President Barack Obama’s cabinet."

But if Perez is a progressive, then he is classic PEP – progressive except for Palestine."
