Skip to comments.Obama camp knows he has a problem with Jewish voters

President Obama's gut-level identification with the Palestinians has become obvious to voters, including many habitual Democrat supporters in the Jewish community. Billionaire big donor Haim Saban very publicly announced he will no longer contribute to President Obama, signaling to other Jewish donors that it is time to bail on a president who publicly calls for 1967 borders as the basis for a settlement.
This 30 second ad, produced by the Emergency Committee for Israel, is also giving heartburn to the Obamites, particularly because it uses pro-Israel Democrats to demonstrate Obama's position as out-of-step with the mainstream.

Is dunham going to hawaii?...
He’s still going to get 75% of the Jewish vote...
Consistent with how large swaths of the Hebrew people would bail out on God’s call, over and over. This is hardly new news.
Ed Koch, former Democrat and Jewish Mayor of NYC, recently announced he will not support Obama in 2012 based on the 1967 border statements.
Well Samantha Power did say that something would need to be done about a certain constituency that would be upset if a mammoth protection force were to occupy Israel.
Obama camp knows he has a problem with Jewish voters
“Obama camp knows he has a problem with Jewish voters”
...until they step into the voting booth and vote for him again. They’re liberals they can’t help themselves!
Took 'em long enough. Hussein's sympathies should've been very clear to the electorate long before Nov. '08. All the info was out there. But even when they DID hear the facts they probably just chalked it up to "Fox News and conservative talk radio hateful propaganda." ....even though none of them actually watch or listen to such media.
Good for Mayor Koch. He had a talk show in NYC yrs ago where he proclaimed himself a “liberal with sanity”.
>Hes still going to get 75% of the Jewish vote...<
BINGO! 80% actually. being a Dummycrap and a Joo is as synonymous as turd and Obama.
American jews hate Israel. Plain and simple. I deal with jews all the time here in L.A. and they are proud Democraps.
It’s not the votes that concern them, it’s the donations (or lack thereof) that could be a problem.
You might be surprised. They bough Soetoro’s BS in 2008, but since then its become obvious that there has never been a US president so hostile to Israel. Many Jews, even the liberal ones, have a deep attachment to their homeland, which is now being seriously threatened not just by the Arabs (they’re used to that), but also by the Kenyan-born Muslim in the White House.
Hopefully the liberal Jews wake up and smell the coffee. A Jewish vote for Obama is like a Jewish vote for Hitler in the 1933 election.
“but since then its become obvious that there has never been a US president so hostile to Israel.”
This is definitely true. Let’s hope they wake up this time around!!
No he doesn’t. The seemingly zombie like voting record of the American Jewish population will not be swayed by more than a couple % points. Liberal siding with Israel’s enemies is nothing new. If the American Jewish population were offended by this, they would have changed their voting habits eons ago.
So did Hitler......sorry couldn’t pass it up.
Sadly, I don’t think that there will be much of a change in Jewish voting or donations, and this one of the few issues, for me, that defies explanation.
For a lot of American Jews, I think Liberalism tops support for Israel any day.
The rise of anti-semitism on the left has been obvious for the last 20 years. It's become so accepted on the left that it's a mainstream position (Dick Morris quit working for the Clintons and the left over anti-semitic remarks made by Hillary, and that was in the '90s).
Do they think the left will differntiate between "Isreali Jews" and "Ameican liberal Jews"? They won't. Plenty of Jews that fought for Germany in WW-I ended up in concentration camps under the Nazis. It didn't matter that they were loyal to Germany, all that mattered is they were Jews.
I don't understand why American Jews aren't terrorfied of the rise of anti-semitism on the left. It's becomming institutionalized in the Democratic party as a pro-palestine/anti-Israel position, but what's driving it is emotion: a deep down, hard core, hatred of Jews.
