Posted on 05/21/2011 4:12:41 PM PDT by PROCON
(Reuters) - Some prominent Jewish Americans are rethinking their support for President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election bid after he effectively called on Israel to give back territory it has occupied since 1967 to Palestinians. The backlash after Obama's keynote speech on the Middle East has Democratic Party operatives scrambling to mollify the Jewish community as the president prepares to seek a second term in the White House.

What’s the percentage of Jews living in America who vote? 5%?
You do have a point. I thought for sure Jews would vote in David Dinkins for a second term as NYC mayor. I was wrong.
BS alert meter would be appropriate.
Streisand will be writing that one to Hillary Clinton this time around.
“Why not this time?”
He be sorta black and we can’t be called racist. So what if his friends want to kill us./sss
Yes but from what I’ve seen of polls, Hussein is EXTREMELY unpopular among Israelites ACROSS THE BOARD in their homeland.
If you knew anything about Sharia law, you’d realize that if America were ruled by it... *YOU’D* be treated just like a Jew would.
Still worth it?
“I have never been able to figure out why Jews are so liberal. We always talk about Judeo-Christian values- but that doesnt seem to apply at the ballot box.”
Many liberal Jews who live in the US have roots in Europe. Their great grandparents and grandparents were communists or part of the money changing elite. My grandfather was a communist and when he came to the states, he was taken off the boat, brought to the lower east side, got a bowl of soup and a job.
And he became a Democrat. His son, my father grew up in Brooklyn and was also a staunch democrat and an orthodox Jew. My father served in Korea, came home, got a job, married my mom and here I be.
In the 80’s something clicked. My fathers taxes went down, his income went up and he swore he would never again vote democrat.
When you start in a wealthy family, all that gets bypassed. those people stayed democrat and moved even further left when the party went that way. High taxes didn’t bother them and more importantly, their desire to help those more needy then them, brought out nanny.
If they have to ponder which way to go they are morally bankrupt.
Karl Marx was a self-loathing Jew. It is nothing new for many Jewish people to refuse to recognize reality.....to refuse to recognize God. Many refused to admit what was happening to them in Germany.....as they were being loaded onto the trains.
Maybe it is extreme hope or a disregard for the sheer evil of mankind. Can’t figure out their lack of common sense and disregard for the facts of history and the results of certain ideologies. They of all people should know the results of socialism and Marxism. Sheer evil and ALWAYS leads to no freedom—totalitarianism and fascism.
How many times can the Jewish people get shit on, clean themselves off, and ask to have it done to them again?
I really don't get it...
Blah, blah, blah.
Their noses may be bent out of shape today, but come November of ‘12, they’ll vote for Zippy, like their parents would have, and their parents’ parents before them.
It is hard for those of us who have thinking and logical minds that question what is happening in this country to understand that for some people PARTY is the religion...it is the god...it is the savior...it must be upheld.
It seems (at least to me) that Democrats are much more reluctant to turn even Independent than are Republicans. My family would choke on a chicken bone before they ever voted anything other than Democrat. Jews have voted for Democrats since Roosevelt was President and helped in the rescue of the Jews from Hitler. They aren’t about to give up their party.
They may hate Obama but they will still vote Democrat. One of you posted that there are only about 5% Jews in the country....all I have to ask is how many of that 5% have either wealth or power or both...and, if not, how many have connections with someone who has one or both? Most of them.
The money will go to the Democratic party and the Jewish voters will just turn their heads as if ignoring they have turned their backs on their ancestry, their ancestral country and this country as well. They will not recognize that they gave money to Obama...it will be giving it to the Democratic party and that is all that counts.
Amen, and plus he said in “his” book...when it comes to crunch time, I will come down on the side of the Muslims..” and to Stephy, “...my Muslim faith...”
Case closed two times!
The majority of the non-religious Jews would vote for osama or hitler if they had a (D) after his name.
We must be careful not to stigmatize all Jews because of a bunch of American libtard Jews. Jews have been victims of pogroms, murders, genocides, discrimination, etc by so-called “christians” throughout the ages. They tend to side with democrats because of their perceived long-standing civil rights records. Many republicans (as well as democrats)have been guilty of antisemitism. They are a gifted, talented people that make up a disproportionate number of diplomats, scientists, lawyers, actors, advisers,bankers, financiers, etc. Someday they will realize that there only true friends are evangelical Christians of a dispensational persuasion. As a member of the Baptist persuasion I am commanded to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem and to remember that “I will bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you” Shalom to my Jewish friends and please stand behind Bibi as he confronts the U.S. President.
End of thread. Case closed.
Will Jews will vote for us? Depends on the candidate. Palin - no. Paul - hell no. Romney - yes. Cain - yes, Daniels - yes, Huntsman - yes.
They are part of the great dem party - Blacks, Latinos, unions, and Jews. Loss of Jews is not great in percent, but significant in money. Love to have them. They are great people.
The numbers that turned against the Dems were not that large, I think the majority still voted Dem. Much of the Jewish community votes Dem because Republicans are Christian and Conservative (both qualities much exaggerated by the Jewish community).
Dennis Prager 10/2/08
Why are so many Jews liberal?
Other then the crusades I can not think of any other time that Christians did anything bad to Jews.
Republicans should have kicked Pat Buchanan out of the party by court order years ago though.
Eaxctly: They dont need mollifying, just watch them go to the polls and vote Obama.
And what have you sown? I like how you call out Jews. Nice.
Pondering will get you in trouble—What should we pack in the suitcase for that train ride the Nazis have for us? Wake up! Danger, run and skip that train ride!
Thanks. I didn’t know that.
The Hillary voters were not voting for Obama too.
Much of the Jewish community came from Eastern Europe during the period 1870-1910. During this time it was well documented that many clerics with backing from local potentates (politicians) would spread blood libel and in much of Eastern Europe is was common for Easter services to be concluded by stoning the local synagogue or worse.
“Top Jewish Americans ponder support for Obama”
What’s to ponder? They will cough up for anti-semitic muslim when it’s all said and done. The only thing that matters is money, and what it can buy.
While Barbara Streisand writes a large check to Obamas campaign.
A fool and her money are soon parted.
American Jews are Liberal Democrats first, last, and always BEFORE Judaism even rears its head. They will vote for the Muslim-in-Chief by 70 to 80 percent.
You are right, they are very far from their faith. Jew in name only (jino) They care only for themselves. Many on this site pound their heads waiting for them to wake up can’t fathom what is going on in their thinking.
Their are many more self hating Soros in the world than is known, and maybe God is just letting them stew in their self centered cess pit.
Special people ? some are, but many just jino’s
after hearing all of those facts they still ran to the polls to vote for Obama..they dont think about Israel.
When they remember Hitler’s death camps it will be too late.
Yeah, Pat has an antisemitic streak in him. as well as Joseph Kennedy, Half of Roosevelt’s cabinet, Father Coughlin, Lindbergh, Jeannette Rankin, Louis Farrakahn, Bill ayers, “pastor Wright” and who else? Let me guess? . .
Some of us are your biggest supporters, and we didn’t vote for Obama. Fear not, the anti-semites hate us as much as they hate you.
“I have friends that are messianic Jews that will not vote OR give money to Obama! They also pack heat at synagogue...even the Rabbi.”
Now thats funny
What the hell took him s long?
Shalom. . next year in Jerusalem
B’ezrat HaShem! Soon, and in our days.
That is correct and that is what thrust them in the arms of being sympathetic to Communism, and the Bolsheviks protected them from the Pogroms if my memory is correct. In many ways todays Reform Jews here in America are still carrying great great great ( how many more?) Grandma and Grandpa’s baggage with them in terms of political leanings... Compound that with all the intellectuals of Jewish decent who’s philosophies they may mave absorbed that still might be controversial (from late 1800’s and early 1900’s) and their maybe a lot to let go of.
