The American Jewish community has been demonstrating wall-to-wall support for Israel as it fights on two fronts. Major Jewish organizations have backed Israel's actions and are considering a community-wide emergency fund-raising effort.
The United Jewish Communities (UJC), which represents 55 Jewish federations and 400 independent Jewish communities across North America, has already provided $1 million via the Jewish Agency that will be used to send children from communities near the northern border to youth villages in the central region.
The UJC is considering embarking on a special fund-raising campaign, similar to the Israel Emergency Campaign that raised more than $360m. during the second intifada.
Several local federations have already started raising monies for Israel on their own.
The Jewish community's biggest public show of support will take place Monday, a rally across from UN headquarters in New York.
The rally's message will stress Israel's right to defend itself and will call to "stop the terror" against the Jewish state.
Representatives of major Jewish organizations will meet with senior administration officials in Washington on Thursday to discuss the situation in the Middle East and to express support for Israel's actions in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.
"The American Jewish community is being mobilized to support Israel's right to self-defense, including measures taken to end the more than 1,000 rockets fired from Gaza, the repeated missile and other attacks across the Lebanese border, and all other acts of terror," the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations said in a statement.
Didn't these people get the memo from Reuters, AP, et.al.? It's all the Joos fault, dontchaknow.
I'll send money. Maybe they can get some support from their fellow party members over at moveon.org too?
Have American Jews noticed the lack of support they've gotten from the Democrat party?
Yes, and American leftists mobibilize for Islamofascism.
American Jews are about as dumb as one can come!!! Their continued support of the Democrat "Jew & American hater, traitor/treason" Party is unflinching. They have have joined the leadership of the Democrat vermin, along with Daily Kos, DU, etc. in blaming the Israeli Jews for the turmoil and war flaring in the Middle East. Like the Muslim terrorists, they want all Israeli Jews dead or thrown into the sea by the Muslim terrorists. Little do these American Jews know, they are next for the beheading knife of Bin Laden and his ilk Iran and Syria. Who are these American Jew haters, Al Franken, Jon Stewart, Steven Spielberg, Harvey Weinstein, etc., etc. What morons and idiots!!! God bless the the Israeli people, the Israeli IDF and the Israeli IAF. I believe our POTUS is working very closely with the Israeli government. I also believe the POTUS and the Israeli PM realize that together with sustained military pressure, they can and will defeat the terrorists. This is really a big play at at a critical time point, one the moron Iranians and Syrians chose in error. Hell is about to released on Hamas and Hezbollah, and later Syria and Iran!!! If these Muslim terrorists had any brains, they would release the Israeli prisoners, disarm, and come to turns for a two state solution. And, Iran and Syria better wise up quickly. They are living on a drunk with power falsehood!!! They are going down. Now, if the Democrat "cut & run" Party ever gets power again, the USA is going down!!!
"Which side on this war is Barbara Streisand supporting?"
Whichever side the far-left communist RATs are supporting she's supporting. That means she's on the side of the islamofascists.
If American Jews want to support Israel, they might want to consider voting Republican. The Dems are NOT friends of Israel.
I contacted the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and requested an address to which I could send some money to be used for arms, or munitions in their current defensive struggle. I will post the response with address included.
Can somebody please, please explain why American Jews continue to vote for Democrats in such large numbers?
I'm still trying to figure out why 90 percent of American blacks vote for the rich old white men who control the Democratic Plantation.
Simple...unable to observe or perform a new behavior.
When will they (traditional liberal dems that they are) mobilize for America?
