[The following, by Tom Mountain, here in full, appears in this week's Jewish Advocate]
The rabbis could barely contain their glee at meeting their president for the first time. Ignoring protocol, they crowded around him, hands outstretched, in a sincere, even loving attempt, to express their adulation. One rabbi grasped the president's hand, looked him in the eye, and said, "Mr. President, I believe that had history placed you in your special position during World War II, there would not have been a Holocaust." The president, visibly moved, was uncharacteristically speechless.
Another rabbi, so overcome with emotion at standing in the presence of the man, took the president's hand and kissed it. It was a rare and telling moment.
Such was the scene when a delegation of Orthodox rabbis visited the White House as described to me by a presidential speech writer.
Oh, for the glory days of President George W. Bush.

How Jews could turn their backs on Israel is beyond me.
Excellent article. I wish the Jewish people in general would realize that conservative Christians are the best friends they could ever have. And Barak Obama is not one of them.
The contrast between GW Bush and Hussain is amazing. Those quotes really bring it home. America and Israel are in grave danger while this quisling infests the White House.
Mr. Mountain is dreaming. Jennifer Rubin documents the bone-deep, enduring animosity Jews have for conservatives, Republicans (except NE RINOS) and Christians in general in the January issue of Commentary. The premise of the article is to analyze and document the passionate and apparently incurable hatred that Jewish women have of Sarah Palin.
It is a sad, follow-up to stories that appeared in the same magazine earlier this year documenting the depth of commitment and loyalty to Democrats EVEN at the expense of Israel and demonstrable anti-Semitism in the party. Check www.commentarymagazine.com. It is really discouraging.
Maybe my co religionists (a goodly number of them) have a different religion: modern secular liberalism.
I would like to add one more name to that list: Harry Truman. He helped to let Israel become a nation again in 1948.
Some years ago I attended a talk by Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com). Twice during the evening he made the point that "Evangelical Christians are not just Israel's best friends, they are her only friends."
as described to me by a presidential speech writer.
Are you saying he is lying about what the presidential speech writer said to him? Or that the presidential speech writer was lying? Or what?
Orthodox Jews do not have an animosity toward Conservatives. They are the ones that vote Republican. Also, American Jews living in Israel voted for Pres. Bush in 2004.
Mr. Mountain is fantasizing if he sees any wholesale support of conservatives/Republicans among any but a small minority of American Jews. Again, read the articles in Commentary magazine, the most recent analysis by Jennifer Rubin and last fall’s issue detailing why Jews vote left.
That may be true but there was a whole community in NYC that voted for Hillary because of a deal cut with Clinton’s AG to stop civil action against the Fraud of their Rabbi. Also, read the well-documented Commentary article by Jennifer Rubin and last fall’s issue devoted to the subject of leftist/Democrat voting by American Jews.
Jacob Elbum? Yes, that was a dirty deal; however, the B’al Tushuva movement usually votes Republican. I know Tom Mountain personally and he is not making the meeting up.
