Dems Boo Jerusalem on Day Jerusalem-Born Natalie Portman to Speak at DNC
Breitbart ^ | 9/5/12 | Joe Pollack

Posted on 09/05/2012 3:46:35 PM PDT by Nachum

On the day that Jerusalem-born, Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman is due to deliver a "surprise" address to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, NC, delegates roundly booed party leaders who amended the Democrat platform to include support for Jerusalem as Israel's capital city.

Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa failed--three times in a row--to earn the support of a two-thirds majority of delegates to amend the platform to include Jerusalem and a reference to "God," which had been omitted. In the end, he merely deemed that the convention had passed the motion--though it clearly had not--and adopted the amendments as written, at which point angry delegates booed, shouted, and shook their heads in anger.

Mitt should announce that immediagely upon being sworn in, he will move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The circus at the DNC will be huge...it will have legs..Also, the Congress, in 1996, with overwhelming Dem support, passed a law ordering that to happen, but Clinton refused to implement it..That would also turn the spotlight on Bill, and maybe, just maybe...have a considerable number of Jews vote GOP

The Democrats have no right to call the Republican convention a dog and pony show. they have had nothing but photo op speakers from day 1. at least our speakers were elected officials
for the most part.

She might want to come out and not mention the J-word

Maybe “boo-the-Jew” will be the strategy tonight.

I have a feeling that she is all about abortion and that is it well, except for maybe gay marriage. Her support for Israel is likely not existent or minimal at best.

It would also turn the spotlight on GWB as he DID make that promise and never followed through.

Abortion may not be regarded as bad a homosexuality in the Tannakh (the Old Testament), but it is regarded as something in violation of the Torah nonetheless.

Portman is a self-hating Jew—she wants Jerusalem booed.

As I'll note on all these threads, good thing it was a voice vote, cause I don't think that was 2/3. The boos were a nice touch.

All of which misses the point, why were G-d and Jerusalem taken out? Is that why they were concerned about having The One accept the nomination outdoors, lightening and all?

No. The reference had been removed.

I wish the Hollywood crowd would stay out of public politics.

Here is yet another actor I have to downgrade. It's a shame. I think Natale Portman is one of the best character actresses in the business. One of a few child stars to make it big in the adult acting world.

All you have to do is do damage control before this came out about Bush. When you announce it, you say "I am no Bush, who didn't get around to doing it (at least he didn't come out against it). I WILL do this. And then do it once you are elected. This way you can use it to distance yourself from unpopular Bush, and also cast dispersions upon Clinton. You also bring up how Clinton refused to do it. Because you are saying something less damaging about a Republican, Bush, it is easier for people to swallow the more damaging thing being said about Clinton. At this point also bring up some of Obama's anti Israel action of the last four years. One must learn how to do damage control, and make lemonade out of lemons. Lemonade is delicious!

Not very believable. Hillary would never complain about a lack of bra. ;)

“You also bring up how Clinton refused to do it.”

clinton came THIS close to giving over Jerusalem to arafat. arafat kyboshed the deal, but barak and clinton were ready to sell Israel out. Never forget and never forgive. That is why I will never understand why barak is anywhre NEAR the Israeli government.

I hope the lovely Miss Portman is ashamed of all those delegates . . . but even more ashamed of Villargiaowioghwioehjsdrgfkiasosa, who overrode the will of the floor and deemed it passed. That moron is as bad as Team Romney was at the RNC.
