No, they just demanded favors from a Republican President whose election the Jewish community fought against, and whose political defeat they celebrated.
Meanwhile, Nixon and Kissinger airlifted huge amounts of supplies to Israel during the Yom Kipper War, for which the Arabs retaliated with an oil embargo that damaged the US economy.
Would you be happier if we would have let the Arabs wipe them out, and establish a soviet client state there?
If two Jews are trapped on dessert island, they’ll establish three synagogues, one for each to separately attend, and two for each to boycott, the second so that they’ll at least both agree on something. The “Jewish community” is not known for its monolithicity (just invented a new word). My father did actively fight against Nixon’s election, and did fight for and celebrate his political evisceration. But he never “demanded” or even asked for any favors from him. Sammy Davis Junior danced and sang at the RNC of 1972. As for myself, I was 12 years old at the time, and agreed with everything my father said, including supporting George McGovern for POTUS. Older and wiser, I am still a member of the “Jewish community,” but have voted Republican in every election since 1998, and have emigrated to Israel to get away from the consequences of my more benighted bretheren’s pick’s election.
All this time I thought Nixon did that to prevent Israel from having to resort to their nuclear option.
Thanks for explaining that it really was just to curry favor with the ungrateful liberal Jewish Democrat voting block in America.
Really, that makes *SOOOO* much more sense! Thank you for unveiling that mystery.
