Jewish Donors Warning Obama Staff
WSJ ^ | 5/18/11 | LAURA MECKLER

Posted on 05/18/2011 5:23:13 PM PDT by Nachum

Jewish donors and fund-raisers are warning the Obama reelection campaign that the president is at risk of losing financial support because of concerns about his handling of Israel.

Some Jewish donors say President Barack Obama has pushed Israeli leaders too hard to halt construction of housing settlements in disputed territory, a longstanding element of U.S. policy. Some also worry that Mr. Obama is putting more pressure on the Israelis than the Palestinians to enter peace negotiations, and that the president has allowed relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fray.

One top Democratic fund-raiser, Miami developer Michael Adler, said ...

Another example of gross, bone-headed, rank stupidity. Obambi is an anti-Semetic muslim . . . there's no doubt about that . . . and so is his whole regime . . . even Hitlery is a total anti-Semite.

So, explain to me how the Obambi regime has almost 100% support at the ballot box, huh?

They can't threaten this anti-Semite. What the hell is the Jewish community thinking? I just don't understand it.

Everything the dummycrats have done for quite a few years has been to strengthen the very animals that want Israel wiped off the map, and still Obambi gets almost 100% of their votes. Are they nuts? It absolutely boggles my mind how they support this monster!

Posturing. When the time comes, when the rubber meets the road, Jewish donors will open their wallets to Hussien Obama. To do otherwise would violate their deepest held political beliefs.

I believe it is because they focused on the National part of National Socialism, rather than the Socialism part.

It isn’t so much that they are leftists as is its that they are anti-right/strong central government.

With the left defining “right” and “strong central government”...

Meh, American Jews are a pretty hopeless voting block. Chasing this group is a waste of time. Obama could throw Israel entirely under the bus and he’d still get a majority of US Jewish backing so long as he continued pursuing secular leftist policies here at home.

I guess it is always worth reaching out to everyone, but making a big effort to win the Jewish vote is a fools errand. This voting block is almost as hopeless as the blacks.

I don't believe it for a second. The Democrat's support from American Jews is not predicated on Israel policy.

Going back to 1916, they vote for Democrats, Socialists and Progressives by large majorities, up to 90% in several elections. Reagan was the last to make a real dent when he pulled 39% in 1980. Those gains were lost by Bush 41 in '92.

Obama is trying to push Israel back to the 1967 borders and give back the Golan Heights. This would be the death of Israel as Obama knows very well. The Palestinians has a home country, it is Jordan, which was previously called Palestine. However, Jordan does not want the trouble makers including Hamas. Don’t blame Jordan for sure. The ultimate goal of the Palestinians and Hamas is the total destruction of Israel. God will protect Israel, and people should remember that fact. Everytime Israel is squeezed or harmed in some way, the US suffers some time of catastrophe. Something to think about.

Well, DUH. Better late than ever (but not much) if these silly donors are seeing the light. For the vast numbers of American Jews to have voted for this dangerous usurper in the first place is like chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.

I took the opportunity to modestly edit the following quote from Penny Pritzker, Obummer's national finance chairwoman, who's now doing some strenuous arm-twisting on the Members of the Tribe:

"I do think there's an education disinformation job to be done, because there's lots of myths truths that abound and misunderstandings perfect understandings of the administration's record," she said. "The campaign is aggressively getting the information its lies out there."

For all my Jewish friends, how can some Jews be so blind as to not see who this man BHO is and what his goals are?

It is not rocket science, and yet there are so many Jews where liberalism trumps all reason. I truly believe these liberal Jews have a death wish and would vote for Hitler himself if his name had a (D) after it. [This would be after he told them is intention was to send them all to concentration camps.]

I cannot conceive of such willful blindness and stupidity. It is just alien to ever fiber in my being.

Underlying a significant if not virtually all of the stupid Jews type commentary on FR is acceptance of the classic antisemitic canard of dual loyalty.

  1. Right so a lot of Freepers think American Jews have divided (dual) loyalties. Implication always being Jews will be more loyal to Israel than America. 
  2. But they can still find ways to criticize American Jews for not voting against Obama and Democrats because they are anti Israel
  3. To be fair---
  4. many freepers could care less about Israel
  5. They just want American Jews to vote conservative
  6. since they voted Obama last time they get to scapegoat Jews for Obama's election
  7. I think it has been shown that in every state with a large Jewish population, Obama won it with a large enough margin that the Jewish vote was not what allowed Obama to win
  8. This would be states such as Florida, New York, California

4.many freepers could care less about Israel 5.They just want American Jews to vote conservative

Yes, but amongst that minority the attempt isn't made by persuading on the issues, Israel not being high on most lists, rather amazement that the Jews aren't voting the way they should, for Israel's "benefit", rather than the issues related to America. On which we may all disagree. 7.I think it has been shown that in every state with a large Jewish population, Obama won it with a large enough margin that the Jewish vote was not what allowed Obama to win 8.This would be states such as Florida, New York, California

True in the last election, could have made a difference in 2000 had a few hundred more Jews voted for Gore and the near first Jewish VP. Of course as "large" states, both California and Florida are well under 4%. California, like states like Illinois and Nevada doesn't have enough Jews to even register on the exit polls. Which are based almost entirely on a NE sample plus southern Florida.

My amazement at the american jewish demographic's voting tendencies for the most part stems from the fact Obama sat in front of a stone cold anti semite every sunday for 20 years before the majority enthusiastically supported him for president.

I do not believe Rev Wright, nor any other of Obama's nation of islam &/or black seperatist fellow travelers, make the distinction between isrealis and american jews when articulating their hatred.

How does this figure into your analysis?
