Question—Do Jews in America care about Israel?

With this voting I would assume they don’t.

If they do they are voting against their own self-interest.

Now I fully understand why European Jews calmly walked to their deaths in 1939-1945: They truly are suicidal. Go figure.

as one of the other 22%, I am so very sad and so very scared today.

I will never understand the other meshuggah 78%; I will never understand how they view the world. Did they not learn the lessons of the past? Well, apparently not.

One of the many “tests” that President Hussein will face (soon!)is Iran v Israel.Hussein will treat Iran with kidd gloves...and might even openly side with them.Then we'll see how many Jews vote for him next time.

They will still vote for him in overwhelming numbers. These are liberal Jews. they believe that Israel shouldn’t exist and the Palestinians are being oppressed.

Question—Do Jews in America care about Israel?

Many do not. Most American Jews are not religious. With a long history of support for liberal politics many have internalized the liberal line: moral equivelence between Israel and Palesting, the original sin of Israel's creation, the need for "land for peace" and other myths of the left. I guess realistically many have been here for 4 or more generations, like many of the rest of us, and their primary allegiance is not to a country they never lived in, but to their vision for the USA>

Been pondering the same rational myself, if Israel is not an issue that brings people to the table, then why are we putting our electoral chances on the line election after election?

At the end of the day though, Israel is an ally of the US, these numbers are discouraging, but you have to support your friends.

Many Jews also voted for Hitler in the 1930s in the belief that his brand of national socialism would restore the ravished German economy that was beset by hyper inflation.

Let's add those to the numbers found in the thread The Awesome Blue God -- How Obama Forged A New Faith Coalition:

75% McCain, 25% Obama - Evangelicals
54% McCain, 44% Obama - Weekly church-goers
51% McCain, 49% Obama - White Catholics
45% McCain, 54% Obama - Catholics
38% McCain, 61% Obama - Occasional churchgoers
21% McCain, 78% Obama - American Jews

IMHO, it seems that there is a strange aura and allure of Marxism for Jews. The Kibbutz experiment in Israel is a perfect example of that allure. I truly do not understand. It is a romance and mystification that defies logic, especially after Marxism fails again and again.

Isreal will have to hit Iran by themselves now. They can't wait four years for Conservative tidal wave that will sweep the Obamanation back into the street.

No way Obambi' going to back an Isreal attack on Iran, or lift one finger to make sure Iran doesn't get a nuke.

Hell, Russia probably dropped off a few nukes to their Iranian buds this morning. Who's gonna tell em not to?
