As Obama and the State Department issue cautious statements of concern, some Democrats refuse to hold their tongues. Congressional candidate Marcy Winograd is challenging incumbent Democrat Jane Harman for an LA district seat. The two politicians share Jewish backgrounds, but the similarities end there. Winograd, co-founder of LA Jews for Peace, condemned the attack, saying: “I invite my opponent, Jane Harman, another Jewish woman, and all of Congress to join me in denouncing this kind of barbaric violence, demanding an end to the blockade, and seeking an international investigation into these murders.” In a statement on her website, Harman responded that "until the facts of this complex and tragic episode are fully investigated and understood, it is premature to assess blame or call anyone a murderer."
