Jewish donors and fund-raisers are warning the Obama re-election campaign that the president is at risk of losing financial support because of concerns about his handling of Israel.
The complaints began early in President Barack Obama's term, centered on a perception that Mr. Obama has been too tough on Israel.
Some Jewish donors say Mr. 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 say they are disappointed Mr. Obama has not visited Israel yet.
One top Democratic fund-raiser, Miami developer Michael Adler, said he urged Obama campaign manager Jim Messina to be "extremely proactive" in countering the perception in the Jewish community that Mr. Obama is too critical of Israel.
He said his conversations with Mr. Messina were aimed at addressing the problems up front. "This was going around finding out what our weaknesses are so we can run the best campaign," said Mr. Adler, who hosted a fund-raiser at his home for Mr. Obama earlier this year.
"Good friends tell you how you can improve. They don't tell you 'everything's great' and then you find out nobody buys the food in your restaurants," he said.
It is difficult to assess how widespread the complaints are. Many Jews support Mr. Obama's approach to the Middle East, and his domestic agenda. But Jewish fund-raisers for Mr. Obama say they regularly hear discontent among some supporters.

He is not listening and all that “protection money” (aka campaign donations) are not going to save you or Israel...sorry it took yall so long to wake up...
And this was written BEFORE today’s speech...
after today we see how many US Jews support Israel being ordered by obama-sunstein to give back all 1967 land including the Golan (as if Syria these days deserves such a carrot), abandon all west bank settlements, possibly dividing Jerusalem, and being on its own for defense
Amalek was quick to thank these donors for their support.
I heard a Rabbi on Varney and company say excatly what Obama was going to say about the 67 borders he was livid and that was yesterday.
And Hollywood, environmentalists, the gays, militant blacks, Code Pink might not support Obama in 2012 either because .........
“Ow! Quit it. Ow! Quit it. Ow! Quit it. Ow! Quit it. Ow! Quit it.”
Hmm...this is very brash of Obama. It’s as though he has no intention of remaining in the White House.
I believe Congress can, and should, cut him off at the knees over this statement, long before the White House can actually put it into action.
1. Block the money to Egypt, a nation which is no longer an ally.
2. Repudiate Obama’s statement and reaffirm the United States support for the nation of Israel.
DO IT NOW!
One top Democratic fund-raiser, Miami developer Michael Adle......
How’s that Hope and Change working for you Mr. Adle?????
It's remarkable, isn't it?
There will be no changes in the voting patterns of Jewish Americans. Leftism trumps all.
What we have is Jewish “donors” thinking they can BUY their safety and dispensation from what Obama and minion plan for the future.
These people are so wedded to their leftist beliefs that they are totally unable to even contemplate reality. They are unable to see the ugly future, and are unable to realize that most of the strongest support for a safe and viable Israel comes from the RIGHT...including the Christian right.
It breaks my heart to once again, write in this very forum, that when the floor falls out from under these “Jewish Donors”, they will cry to their G-d, “My Lord, how could you allow this to happen again?”
The voice from heaven, “But-but, this is what you voted for!”
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Liberal Jews, like lemmings, can only run towards and off a cliff with the D sign pointing towards it. Its in their DNA.
OR has no intention of ever leaving the WH................
I am so old that I can recall when Jews were considered smart.
US Jews did more to destroy Israel than Yasser and Hammas ever could have.
Hammas should make every US Jew that voted for Obama an honorary Hammas Bomber.
A Jew voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.
Our country IS NOW in soooo much trouble. This bigmouth will lead this country to greater destruction. Floods, tornadoes, we ain’t seen nothing yet when God the Father of Heaven turns loose on us. Even so Lord Jesus, Come quickly, Amen.
Why, pray tell, are there any Jewish donors to Iman 0bama?
Most are all “D” and are still voting for Roosevelt.
If “The Divine One” ordered B-52’s to carpet bomb Tel Aviv, New York and Beverly Hills American Jews would still vote for him.
That would probably be a best selling t-shirt or bumper sticker.
...and what is Mr. Israel, Rahm Emanuel’s, take on this? Crickets??
Isn’t it a wonder to watch Karma work?
The American Jews (Democrats) vote for every liberal politician, liberal law, liberal everything else that has already destroyed our American heritage and way of life and now...........they help elect someone who in turn now guarantees the destruction of Israel!
Simple Karma...nothing else. Kinda like “you make your bed and now lay to sleep in it” or “you sleep with dogs and you wake up with fleas” and on and on and on......
Obama will leave the white house because he is currently running for president of the world.
It’s as if they are voting in a seance..
“I believe Congress can, and should, cut him off at the knees over this statement, long before the White House can actually put it into action.”
Eunuchs with gonads - this I gotta see.
And last year, a poll by McLaughlin & Associates, a Republican polling firm, found that 46% of American Jews said they would consider voting for someone other than Mr. Obama.
"Consider" being the operative word. "Liar" being the other that was omitted. Every election campaign season my BIL's Jewish wife says she is willing to consider a non Dem. Afterwords she admits that she will *always* vote Dem because that is how her family has always voted.
She's also a stereotypical NEA member. Whines that Rick Scott is evil and stealing her money because she will now have to actually contribute to her retirement fund. And a special national board certification bonus she gets every year will be slightly reduced this year......oh yeah she is still getting a bonus.
The notion that the Jews will leave the Dems in significant numbers is fantasy. There is nothing Zero is doing now that wasn't extremely obvious during the campaign. Hell, most of it he said out loud that he would do. Not to put too fine a point on it, but anyone that is surprised he is crapping all over Israel is shuffling, drooling stupid.
We hear this baloney every campaign season, some kind of pathetic Republican fantasy.
IOWS....you can be against Israel just don't do it openly....
If I weren't Catholic (not a very good one) I would choose to be Jewish....having said that, these American Jews can go jump in the lake....they've blindly supported rats for decades and they'll do it again...why, I don't know...
but IIRC, George Soros was a Jew that collabrorated with the Nazi's...granted, he was just a kid, but he learned early how to use people,and money....
What he just did was a diversion.
With some of the information about his past actions coming out recently, particularly about SSNs and fraud, he may just be pulling a HUGE diversion before resigning and absconding with loot.
Why do I say that?
Obama is a grifter. Michelle lost her law license because she, as a lawyer, was aiding a client to commit insurance fraud. Her client? Her husband.
He has never hesitated to throw anyone, or any group, ‘under the bus’. That includes all of his enthusiastic supporters - communists/Muslims/Democratic Party - many of whom believe they control him!
He has 40 or so social security numbers. No one has that many unless they use them for illegal activities. By being elected President he's in a position where he can screw with the data trail and enhance his ability to commit financial fraud.
He was one of the people behind the Pigford lawsuit, that alleged the Federal government discriminated against black farmers.
There are approximately 32,000 black farmers in the U.S. The suitors now number in excess of 88,000 at a cost to the U.S. taxpayer in the $Billions. Does anyone think Obama incapable of robbing the government?
Obama illegally spent $23Million on rewriting Kenya's national constitution. Now he is eligible to run for Kenya's presidency. I believe this is his bolt hole.
Rumors have circulated that the Obama’s have foreign bank accounts. Wow, who could have guessed that?
If Obama doesn't go now or soon, he may never be able to escape. One thing is for sure: Muslims will protect him in Kenya and he will never be returned to the U.S. for justice.
It seems to me the Jews learned very little from Hitler.
Not this American Jew...
Most Jewish Americans are not Zionist.
“Eunuchs with gonads...”
A huge number in both the House and the Senate rely on Jewish political donations.
The eunuchs ignore those donors, they can kiss their re-elections goodbye.
Yawn. Wait ‘til 2012. They’ll all be back on board. All it takes is a promise or two.
Neither was Bin Laden.................
You are right about that. Methinks that even with Obama’s hatred of Israel the majority of Jews will still contribute to his campaign.
“Neither was Bin Laden....”
But I suspect Obama isn’t as smart as folks imagine. He will overplay his hand. Politics in Muslim Africa is a blood sport with death to the loser.
If anybody was unconvinced that he is a muslim, they should be convinced now..................
Yes and for the life of me, it’s something I’ll never understand!
