    The Jewish donors gathered Thursday had two demands of the Republican presidential candidates who'd come to speak to them: unambiguous support for Israel and respect. Donald Trump seemed to fail at both. The party's 2016 front-runner openly questioned Israel's commitment to the Mideast peace process in his remarks to the Republican Jewish Coalition, echoing comments he made the night before in an interview with The Associated Press. He drew boos after refusing to endorse Jerusalem as the nation's undivided capital. And he suggested to the influential group simply wanted to install a puppet in the White House....

    Donald Trump, speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), repeatedly said that Jews won't vote for him because, since he isn't accepting donations, they will not be able to control him with their money. “You are not going to support me even though you know I am the best thing that could happen for Israel. I know why you are not going to support me. You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money,” Trump told a full auditorium of Jewish donors and Republican Jewish supporters. “You want to control your own politicians.” This plays into...

"A plan that singles out Muslims and denies them entry to the U.S. based on their religion is deeply offensive and runs contrary to our nation's deepest values," the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement Monday evening, hours after Trump, a real estate billionaire and reality TV star, issued his call."In the Jewish community, we know all too well what can happen when a particular religious group is singled out for stereotyping and scapegoating," Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL's CEO said.

Of the following examples, however, there are two significant differences between Trump’s call and that of all the others. See if you can come up with the two differences by the end of this article.

    WASHINGTON/NEW YORK, Dec 9 (Reuters) - For the Republican Party, a tough job just got a little tougher thanks to Donald Trump. For years, Republicans, backed by some influential donors, have carefully cultivated the vote of Jewish-Americans who regard the security of Israel their top concern. Less than a week ago, a bevy of presidential candidates stood before a group of Jewish conservatives in Washington, asking for their support and declaring their solidarity with the Jewish state. But Trump's proposal to bar the entry of all foreign Muslims into the United States has upended some of those efforts, prominent Republicans...

    Relations between Binyamin Netanyahu and Barack Obama are not quite as bad as they have been made out to be - and things could yet improve in the coming months, according to former leading Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman. Speaking at Haifa University Tuesday, Lieberman - who served as Senator from 1988-2012, during which time he was nominated as the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate - did acknowledge that the personal relationship between the two was far from perfect. Lieberman was the keynote speaker at the opening of the third session of the Ruderman Program for American Jewish Studies at the...

    A longstanding alliance between Jewish voters and the Democratic Party no longer appears very durable. The rift aggravated by a nuclear deal with Iran and sour relations between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will likely have political implications in the 2016 elections, The Wall Street Journal reports. "At this moment in time, many American Jews who have consistently voted Democratic are beginning to waver in that support, because they've felt the bedrock relationship between Israel and this administration has been severely shaken," Rabbi Howard Buechler, of the Dix Hills Jewish Center in New York,...

    Obamas morally confused foreign policy is making the world more dangerous by the day. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress on Tuesday to warn Americans of the anti-Western threats from theocratic and likely to soon be nuclear Iran. Netanyahu came to the U.S. to outline the Iranian plan to remake the Middle East with a new nuclear arsenal. His warning was delivered over the objections of the Obama administration, which wants to cut a deal with Iran that allows the theocracy to continue to enrich lots of uranium. Netanyahu received a standing ovation for stating the...

Tomasky, who is also the editor-in-chief of Democracy, analyzed Obama's first term vis--vis Israel and concluded that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu outfoxed the President. Tomasky cites a recent poll by the Public Religion Research Institute, in which 62% of 1,004 American Jews surveyed said that they would vote for Obama, noting that this is a sizeable downturn from 2008,...

In response to the question Biden said, President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time. He added, If it were up to me, he would...

    Obama's approval ratings, now a record-breaking low among Jewish voters, are almost as pathetic as his ability to omit gaffes from his campaign speeches (every speech he makes these days is a campaign speech). Spouting to the Congressional Black Caucus this weekend, the President somehow managed to confuse "janitors" with "Jews."

    Why Republicans are optimistic and Democrats are worried.The week before the special election in New York’s 9th congressional district, the Democratic National Committee meeting in Chicago focused on three main areas of concern that required improved “messaging” for the 2012 campaign: jobs, health care, and Jewish voters — an odd list to be sure. The Obama campaign hired the former long-time head of the National Jewish Democratic Council, Ira Forman, to help with this third task. A poll out last week from Gallup suggested that Obama’s approval level in the Jewish community is now 55%, down 5% from the prior...

And it could affect the electoral map, given the battleground statessuch as Florida and Pennsylvaniawith significant Jewish populations. In another ominous barometer for the Obama campaign, its Jewish fund-raising has deeply eroded: One poll by McLaughlin & Associates found that of Jewish donors who donated to Mr. Obama in 2008, only 64% have already donated or plan...

    If the election were held today, President Obama would get only 56 percent of the Jewish vote against a generic Republican candidate, down from the 78 percent he won in 2008 and less than the 74 percent John Kerry received in 2004. This is the key finding of a survey of 1,000 Jewish voters I conducted from June 20-27 using telephone and Internet interviews. After asking basic questions of the entire sample, I proceeded to drill down with more detailed questions for the Jews in the sample who identified themselves as Democrats. The overall survey has a 95 percent confidence...

    President Obama's gut-level identification with the Palestinians has become obvious to voters, including many habitual Democrat supporters in the Jewish community. Billionaire big donor Haim Saban very publicly announced he will no longer contribute to President Obama, signaling to other Jewish donors that it is time to bail on a president who publicly calls for 1967 borders as the basis for a settlement. This 30 second ad, produced by the Emergency Committee for Israel, is also giving heartburn to the Obamites, particularly because it uses pro-Israel Democrats to demonstrate Obama's position as out-of-step with the mainstream.

    When PBS asked me to do an interview for a television newsweekly because I am a Jew supporting McCain, I didn't hesitate to say yes. PBS's left wing bias is legendary. I thought it likely the interview would be edited to make me look like a Jew with compromised allegiance to the US, and not even a "real Jew" at that because I fail to see Judaism as the religion of "Tikkun Olam." But I thought I had something valuable to say about why I, a liberal Jewish woman Democrat whose primary issue prior to 9/11 was reproductive rights, now...

    An annual survey published by the American Jewish Committee on Thursday revealed that American Jewish voters favor Senator Barack Obama over Senator John McCain for U.S. president by a margin of 57-30 percent. The surprising figure to emerge from the survey was the unexpectedly large number of undecided voters, at 13 percent. Though the percentage of Jews in the U.S. is merely 2 percent, 4 percent of the votes in the presidential elections are generally cast by American Jews. In certain states, such as Florida, the Jewish vote is considered crucial. In addition, more than 40 percent of American Jews...

    It has been 88 years since Republican Warren Hardings 43% was good enough to get him a plurality victory among Jewish voters. Since 1920, however, the Jewish voter had moved steadily left. Now maybe that is changing. In 1996 Bill Clinton got 78% of the Jewish vote. In 2000 Al Gore got 79% and four years later John Kerry got 76%. These numbers reflect the extent to which Democratic presidential candidates have traditionally been able to rely upon the Jewish vote. Nevertheless, this year things seem to be changing. There are signs that the Jewish vote is becoming less monolithic...

But strikingly, a fairly significant number of Jews switching from Gore in 2000 to Bush, somewhere in the order of 12-13%," said David Harris, AJC's executive director, who examined data, which he stressed was not scientific.

After first disengaging from the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and refusing to even lay eyes on Yasser Arafat, Bush went on to give Israeli Prime Minister and best Mideast buddy Ariel Sharon virtual carte blanche in his crackdown on the suicide-bombing Palestinans and then followed the advice of his fiercely pro-Israel neocon advisers and went to war in Iraq.

For one thing, this was the first election since 1968 without an incumbent, so neither the Democratic candidate, Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis, nor his Republican counterpart, vice president George Bush, had a record on which to run.

    Bush, Jews And Democrats (Part VIII) By Jason Maoz, Senior Editor A majority of American Jewish voters had deserted Jimmy Carter in 1980, leading to speculation that the Jewish community perhaps was moving away from its longtime loyalty to the Democratic party and rendering obsolete Milton Himmelfarb`s famous observation that "Jews earn like Episcopalians but vote like Puerto Ricans." But Jews would flock home to the Democratic party in 1984, preferring the Democratic candidate, Walter Mondale, to the incumbent Republican president, Ronald Reagan, by a 69 percent to 31 percent margin. The 84 election was yet another indication that a...

    September 6, 2002, 9:00 a.m. By Edward B. Miller For some time now, Jewish voters have been disproving the old adage that Jews live like Episcopalians but vote like Puerto Ricans. Republican incumbents such as New York's George Pataki and Ohio's George Voinovich, and recent Republican officeholders like New York's Rudy Giuliani and Al D'Amato and Massachusetts's Bill Weld each won more than 40 percent of the Jewish vote in one of their campaigns.

    DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe met with Democratic Party leaders last week to address eroding support from Jewish voters, who, in increasing numbers, recognize that the strongest and most loyal defenders of Israel are Christian conservatives. McAuliffe's party of emotions, atheism and name-calling is having an alarming time validating its purpose and is at risk of losing a substantial portion of a voting bloc it has always counted on. Like Bela Lugosi following a bad hangover, Democratic strategists are witnessing the switch of American Jewish voters to the GOP, a situation they once thought, by definition, impossible. Democratic and liberal propaganda...

    Jewish Voters Gravitating Toward GOP FNC Bumper stickers showing U.S.-Israeli ties were handed out at a recent pro-Israel festival in L.A. Wednesday, April 24, 2002 By Katie Cobb LOS ANGELESJewish Americans make up only 2.5 percent of the U.S. population but they vote in higher percentages than any other minority group in the country. Typically, they are known as staunch Democrats, but as more of the traditional left of the Democratic Party gravitate toward the Palestinian cause, American Jews are indicating that they place more trust in the party of George W. Bush. "Prior to Sept. 11 on my...
