That’s been the position of only two US Administrations since 1967: Carter’s and Obama’s. But it has no effect on the reality on the ground.

Obama won what? 80% of the Jewish vote? Elections have consequences.

Jusst came across this article in the Foreign Policy magazine, that can be summed up : “Everything is Israel’s fault”. It’s openly anti-Israel.

Israel’s Demophobia

http://mideast.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2011/02/18/israel_s_demophobia

“This predicament is not, as many in Israel and the American pro-Israel lobby fear, a growing encirclement of the country by the forces of radical Islam led by Iran. Rather, the predicament is simply that the only ‘friends’ that Israel has in the region are autocrats whose support-overt and covert-for Israeli policies is deeply unpopular. As such, Israel is basically an opponent of democracy in the region, except of course when it can undermine its enemies, as in the case of the current regime in Iran. “

And this is just the beginning...

And the author, Dov Waxman appears to be Jewish, a professor at the City University of NY.

They are prepared to say "We were right!" no matter what happens in the future. Obama is quote proud of how he handled Egypt -- he got it exactly right, with perfect decisions at exactly the right time, every step of the way. At least, that's how he tells the story.

Israelis in their home country are “illegitimate”, but foreigners who invade our country, commit crimes here, and squat on our land are “undocumented?” Does that even make any sense?

...when it comes to Israel, American Jews seem to be blind....they vote Dem over and over and contribute money to their campaigns...don’t they see how little by little Israel is being abandoned by Dems in favor of Muslims?

As someone who comes from a strong Jewish heritage (I’m second generation Christian) with many relatives still practicing Judaism ... American Jews, for the most part, couldn’t care less about the Jews of Israel. They are more concerned about their 401k and retirement benefits, thus their vote for the Democrats.

They're not Jews, they're RAT-Americans. They could give a damn about Israel.

I thought the same thing and then pondered the percentage he can expect in the next election (if he can produce a good enough fake BC). Most likely it’ll still be above 50 percent but well below the 2008 percentage.

What a shame. Christian Americans care more about Israel then Jewish American voters.

**As a wife

**As a defender of the common people

**As head of Foggy Bottom

Netanyahu tried to give Clinton a clue a couple of months ago. “Jerusalem is our capitol.” so there can’t be any “illegal” building there. Obama and his Clinton are so busy giving away the Middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood and their ilk, they forget they used to be the “leaders of the free world.”
