Most sensible Jews are abandoning Obama because he prefers Palestinians to the Jewish homeland. Obama thinks Kagan may help but Jews will have to share her with her real affinity group, the GLBT folks.
Absolutely correct. Virtually every country in the world sees the Israeli/Palestinian issue in quite a different light. However, in this country AIPAC effectively provides the news and certainly calls the shots politically.
If one doubts this, research the topic on the internet.
You error in your statement. It's not that he's against a Jewish homeland. Rather it's that he's against 60 years of ongoing ethnic cleansing and apartheid of the Palestinians. It's their home too. Moreover, the vast majority of Israelis are actually European "settlers" or invaders, take your choice.
Just a quick question-- who are the Palestinians, how long have they been there, and what are the exact (remember exact) boundaries of Palestine? When you can answer those 3 questions you are entitled to have an opinion until then you're just another uninformed loudmouth.
Just a quick update Aprtheid in israel is averrrry recent phenomena- Jews have been in the majority for most of the 60 years just sayin
So you are actually accusing the Jews of ethnic cleansing?
That statement is ridiculous. The Jews are just protecting their lives and property from the lawless Pals.
Obama prefers the Pals because he is Muslim.
Jews would do well to try to influence Obama. And Netanyahu could find himself out on his ear if he doesn't find a way to apologize for his boorish behavior.
After all, it is ONLY Obama's vote that prevents constant censure from the UN. Without Obama, Israel could find itself with no UN sanction, which is the only reason it ever existed in the first place.
[Perhaps the Israelis can buy the new British PM, whoever that is, but that's another matter... and what a switch that would be!]
The alternative to Obama is the party that has always been anti-Semitic. They even had a holocaust denier give the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention in 1992- see "Pat Buchanan".
No matter how much the Palins and Hannities like to pretend and project, they've always hated Jews, and still do. Even David Duke will pretend he loves Jews, for a big price and for a little while!
