It IS good thing. And the GOP needs to make it known far and wide. However, it is important to understand that the typical secular (coastal) Jew cares very little about Israel. In fact, they are far more concerned with acceptance into the right (elitist) circles. This is why the secular Jew will always be liberal. They are, and always will be, ‘virtual signaling’ to others in order to be socially accepted. They are embarrassed by Israel and instead focused on being invited to the right cocktail parties. They have no core beliefs. Their beliefs are tied to whatever will earn them acceptance as cultural elites.
