Skip to comments.Democrats take Pro-Israel language out of platform
Posted on 09/04/2012 10:46:52 AM PDT by GlockThe Vote
The Democrat Party has removed a section of its 2008 Party Platform in the 2012 version recently released online -- some key language in expressing support for the state of Israel.
Below is the section missing from the 2012 document (h/t Republican Jewish Coalition, @RJCHQ) :
The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel's right to exist, and abides by past agreements. Sustained American leadership for peace and security will require patient efforts and the personal commitment of the President of the United States. The creation of a Palestinian state through final status negotiations, together with an international compensation mechanism, should resolve the issue of Palestinian refugees by allowing them to settle there, rather than in Israel. All understand that it is unrealistic to expect the outcome of final status negotiations to be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949. Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.
Each of these items is crucial to Israel, and all have been key areas of contention for those who believe this President has not been friendly to the Jewish State.

The Muzzies had it pulled, possibly even 0bama.
Freak show convention.
Here is the Middle East section of the 2012 platform
The Middle East. President Obama and the Democratic Party maintain an unshakable commitment to
Israels security. A strong and secure Israel is vital to the United States not simply because we share
strategic interests, but also because we share common values. For this reason, despite budgetary
constraints, the President has worked with Congress to increase security assistance to Israel every single
year since taking office, providing nearly $10 billion in the past three years. The administration has also
worked to ensure Israels qualitative military edge in the region. And we have deepened defense
cooperation including funding the Iron Dome system to help Israel address its most pressing threats,
including the growing danger posed by rockets and missiles emanating from the Gaza Strip, Lebanon,
Syria, and Iran. The Presidents consistent support for Israels right to defend itself and his steadfast
opposition to any attempt to delegitimize Israel on the world stage are further evidence of our enduring
commitment to Israels security.
It is precisely because of this commitment that President Obama and the Democratic Party seek peace
between Israelis and Palestinians. A just and lasting Israeli-Palestinian accord, producing two states for
two peoples, would contribute to regional stability and help sustain Israels identity as a Jewish and
democratic state. At the same time, the President has made clear that there will be no lasting peace
unless Israels security concerns are met. President Obama will continue to press Arab states to reach
out to Israel. We will continue to support Israels peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, which have been
pillars of peace and stability in the region for many years. And even as the President and the Democratic
Party continue to encourage all parties to be resolute in the pursuit of peace, we will insist that any
Palestinian partner must recognize Israels right to exist, reject violence, and adhere to existing
Elsewhere in the region, President Obama is committed to maintaining robust security cooperation with
Gulf Cooperation Council states and our other partners aimed at deterring aggression, checking Irans
destabilizing activities, ensuring the free flow of commerce essential to the global economy, and
building a regional security architecture to counter terrorism, proliferation, ballistic missiles, piracy, and
other common threats.
And still the Jews will overwhelming vote for Obama..
Odious. But perhaps this is a good thing as it will alert SOME Jewish Voters that the DNC is NOT their friend.
I sent to some of my Jewish friends and facebook.
I have a few moonbat leftists who won’t care one bit about this.
and many of the American Jews will still vote for these idiots.
I had one girl who was from NY city, rich Jewish and a left wing nut she turned out to be after she went with a guy.
Years later we were talking about the 08 election and she went all out witht he usual talking oints of calling me a NAZI because i said the huff post MSNBC etc are biased.
I asked her what kind of NAZI woudl I be if I dated you and got into fights protecting you and your family.
They're anything but Jews in other than the liberal-political sense. They don't even believe in God.
Just another victimhood group label to get goodies and political clout.
Jewish People, like Irish Catholics, have a generational tradition of voting dem.It TAKES a MAJOR offense to get them to change affiliations. I know. I am from a Boston Irish family who actually worked for the Kennedys. And my late husband’s family were Jewish People who were in business. My BIL, a small business owner, finally saw the light because he saw the marxist policies of the present administration destroying his livelihood.
EXACTLY what I was thinking!
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has just tried to screw Israel. They may just given the election Mitt. The Zoinist will now vote republican. In ten years the Muslims will write the entire platform. This does not end well for the Jews who are Libish.
I have a cute story about tradition:
There was this young newlywed wife who was cooking her first Christmas Ham. Her husband was in the kitchen helping her out when he noticed a funny thing. After she had removed he Ham from it’s packaging the first thing she did was to cut off the heel and discard it.
Her husband asked her why she had done that. She replied that was what her mom always did when she cooked a Ham. He had her call her mom and ask her why she did that. Her mom replied that was the way her mom, (Grandmother now), had always done it.
They got Grandma on a three-way connection and asked her why she cut off the heel on the Ham. Her Grandmother replied I cut off the Heel of the Ham because my pan was too small for the whole Ham!
Tradition! It starts out with a good reason and then is mindlessly followed thereafter even when the reason for it is long gone.
Thanks GlockThe Vote.
Just to be really clear about how the Demagogic Party LIES:

Problem is, unlike other groups, Jews aren't getting anything back in return for support for "Osama" Obama. In fact, 'Rat policies under Obama, both foreign and domestic, often act against the interests American Jews. The posted 'Rat platform on Israel is just one of many insults to Jews and legitimate Jewish concerns that the leftist mind set causes.
And it's not just Israel. How about affirmative action and Obamacare, just to cite two domestic examples?
BTW, can someone please post the Republican platform section on Israel so we can compare it to the 'Rats?
Here is Mitt’s:
To ensure Israels security, Mitt Romney will work closely with Israel to maintain its strategic military edge. The United States will work intensively with Turkey and Egypt to shore up the now fraying relationships with Israel that have underpinned peace in the Middle East for decades. The United States must forcefully resist the emergence of anti-Israel policies in Turkey and Egypt, and work to make clear that their interests are not served by isolating Israel.
With regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mitts policy will differ sharply from President Obamas. As president, Mitt will reject any measure that would frustrate direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. He will make clear to the Palestinians that the unilateral attempt to decide issues that are designated for final negotiations by the Oslo Accords is unacceptable. The United States will reduce assistance to the Palestinians if they continue to pursue United Nations recognition or form a unity government that includes Hamas, a terrorist group dedicated to Israels destruction. The United States needs a president who will not be a fair-weather friend of Israel. The United States must work as a country to resist the worldwide campaign to delegitimize Israel. We must fight against that campaign in every forum and label it the anti-Semitic poison that it is. Israels existence as a Jewish state is not up for debate.
Koch has endorsed Obama and is defending his record on Israel.
Very hard to find an anti-Israel person on this list of Romney’s advisors:
Paula J. Dobriansky
The Messiah explains it all HERE.
Koch might occasionally wander off the reservation, as he did in that NY-9 special congressional election last year, but that would be only a temporary respite from his lifelong addiction to the 'Rats.
And who is Koch to anoint himself the Moses of American Jewry anyway? He's always been a legend in his own mind.
Terrific Story! Thank You! :-)
Best part is, the leftist animus directed toward, for example, Walid Phares.
News flash: Koch has just been hospitalized for the treatment of anemia. A heavenly Hand?
