This is not going to persuade Jews. Republicans have GOT to stop trying to win the Jewish vote. It’s not going to happen. Obama is more hostile to Israel than any modern US president and US Jews still voted for him overwhelmingly - twice. And they will vote overwhelmingly for the next Democrat presidential candidate. Outside of Israel, the great majority of Jews vote for secular progressive party’s. They’ve been doing this for all of modern history. There is a reason so many in Europe associated Jews with communism.

“This is not going to persuade Jews. Republicans have GOT to stop trying to win the Jewish vote. It’s not going to happen.”

Conservatives such as myself have argued for Israel for years. Frankly, I find the whole thing disappointing, given that I am not even Jewish, I have had a whole lot better concern by all I have written and said regarding Israel. But the sad story is that there will be some professed “Christians” and some professed “Jews” who will be open enemies to God in the last days.

Another way of saying this is that there are Ruth Grubers and Oscar Schindlers (a Jew and a non-Jew who both worked to save people from the Holocaust) But there will also be those, both Christian and Jew, who try to throw examples of Democracy in a savage world (Israel) under the bus for the sake of appeasing the radical Islam, effectively giving a win to the ideologies of Osama bin Laden, Yasir Arafat, et al.

The story of European Jews and communism is complicated. Communism has been from its start an antisemitic death cult. You are wrong about Jews in other countries. In Canada, France, Sweden, and the UK Jews vote for "conservative" parties or are swing votes.

Nothing we do on FR makes a difference to most Jews. They don't read FreeRepublic. 1/3 to 40% of American of Jews lost on the left. Another 1/3 are moderates, but are are urbanites subject to the same malignant cultural influences destroying America. They live in the left world. They don't like the taxes and parts of the culture but ignorance or doublethink prevents them from putting two and two together.

Over time, the right-leaning Jewish vote will increase perhaps a few percent each cycle. Orthodox Jews are increasing in number. However, their large families also mean that many are dependent on welfare to some degree. Russian and Middle Eastern Jews are clustered in NY and CA, so their votes make little difference in presidential election.

Republicans don't generally support Israel because of the Jewish vote. They do so because it is the right thing to do and because most Americans support Israel.
