Posted on 10/26/2004 8:44:39 AM PDT by Jacob Kell
As a leader in the American Jewish community for some 30 years, I have never asked fellow Jews to vote for a presidential candidate. I have always believed that Jews have had Jewish reasons to vote for candidates from both parties.
Not this election.
There are overwhelmingly powerful Jewish reasons to vote for President Bush and equally powerful Jewish reasons not to vote for John Kerry.
To understand this, I need to explain the word "Jewish." It means two things: that which concerns Judaism and its values, and that which concerns Jews as a distinct ethnic people. Whichever definition one chooses, the case for the re-election of President Bush and the rejection of John Kerry and of the left, which along with radical Islam is the Jews' great enemy in our time is overwhelming.

-- Joseph Myerson, 1873 - 1956
Bush by 10 points.
I had a good victory last night. I met with two friends of mine who are Jewish and they said they were leaning Kerry. After 20 minute discussion and reminding them of "Clintoon's" embrace of Arafat...they are confirmed for Bush...and they agreed to each call 5 friends that they know are voting Kerry!!
It is inconceivable to me, a Jew...a New York City born-and-raised Jew at that, that Jews still cling to their love-affair with liberal democrats. Long, long gone are the days when the democratic party was considered to be in the vanguard of welcoming and protecting Jewish immigrants fleeing repressive regimes abroad (this is before my time so I can't say whether this perception fit the reality of the day).
I would think that most Jews know that Islamic-Arabic hatred for us is an ancient hatred. It is not about politics, nor control of Palestine, nor the plight of the Palestinian people. It is not even so much about differences in idealogy or theology although it is that. It is a hatred of people...Jewish people, which arches back through time and millenia. And it is a hatred which will know no end, no abatement, no negotiation, no reason and no diplomacy. It has absolutely no regard for human life, nor gender, age or social status. It is an evil that can only be crushed or at least held at bay by overwhelming force. Into whose hands will Jews entrust that force?
As long as our great country, the United State of America, harbors and supports Jews, we will be targets of this ancient hatred. How then can any right-thinking Jew vote for anyone other than the man who will be most aggressive against the enemy who threatens our very existence as a people.
It blows my mind that your friends had to be reminded about Clinton & Arafat!!! Haven't they noticed that terrorism aimed at fellow Jews has dropped considerably since Bush declared war on terroism? I'll never understand why any Jew would EVER vote for a democRAT, period. Democrats are not friends of Jews.
As we say in church....AMEN!
I've stated it before and I'll state it again. The Jewish population in this country is becoming more Orthodox each and every day. Orthodox communities are booming. The old stereotypical "liberal" Jew is fading into oblivion. They marry later (if they aren;t gay), they have 1 or 2 kids who most-likely intermarry and they have little sense of Jewish identity. Orthodox families are fairly intelligent people, the average family is 5 to 8 children, and they understand what is happening in this county. In the large orthodox community where I live, there are Bush signs on many lawns and it is almost a shoe-in that my fellow orthodox Jew is a republican. Almost all of our cultural newspapers are pro-Bush and we also listen to our Rabbi's--who are right-leaning.
Be in for a big shocker come Nov 2 when I predict, 35-40% of the Jews in America vote for Bush. thats a big victory for us.

I guess old habits die hard.
