Posted on 04/04/2015 5:24:19 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Many U.S. Jewish leaders are unnerved both by the new Iran nuclear agreement and the public falling out between President Barack Obama and his Israeli counterpart, developments that are creating a rift in the durable alliance between Jews and the Democratic Party in the run-up to the 2016 elections.
Worried that Iran might still develop a nuclear weapon despite the accord announced Thursday, the Jewish leaders say they feel torn between an Obama administration that has pressed hard for a deal and an Israeli government that has repeatedly warned that Iran is a grave threat to the Jewish state and cant be trusted to abandon its nuclear ambitions.
A group of Jewish Democratic House members met with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough in his office last week and cautioned that for them to help sell a very unpopular [Iran nuclear] deal to our constituents, Mr. Obama must increase his popularity with our constituents, said a Democratic congressman involved in the meeting.
Republicans have begun making moves to try to capitalize on this unease, hoping to peel away Jewish votes and campaign contributions that have historically skewed Democratic.

Stupid liberal Jews in America will support their socialist friends all the way to the gas chambers.
The one time Obama did not tell a lie!!!
B. HUSSEIN OBAMA: “I WILL STAND WITH THE MUSLIMS. . .”
B. Hussein Obama says in his own words. They are from his books entitled Dreams of My Father and Audacity of Hope.
In Audacity of Hope he writes: I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of The Audacity of Hope.
Uh, if you Jewish folks have been paying attention, you might have realized that the Democrat party hasn’t been in your corner for 30+ years.
And for the last SIX years, not only has the Democrat party not been in your corner, it has been A BLATANT ENEMY.
What Obama said was that he would stand with the Arabs and Pakistanis should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Obama is a muzzie. His actions and statements provide all the evidence needed to prove that point.
He, Obama, has done everything except taking out an ad in the paper stating he is a muslim to prove he is.
Jews supporting Democrats is like blacks sending contributions to the KKK.
Obama and the Dems could participate in any anti-Semitic activity and the Jews would still vote for them hand over fist. Why conservatives think that we’ll ever win a plurality of the Jewish vote is beyond confusing to me.
Yup. He really has been incredibly clear in telling the world that he is a muslim.
As Ronald Reagan said:
I didn’t leave the Democrat party, the Democrat party left me.

You’d have to go back to the shtetl to change that.
LIBERAL Jews are Liberals First. Many are near socialist AND separatist in their politics.
Lots of Jews, like many other crony capitalists, are in businesses supported by tax dollars; Not-for-Profits, Education, Social Service and Community Service groups etc . . . not to mention Law and medical fields. Trading blocks of votes for public dollars is the norm.
Like many others, they vote their pocketbooks (my kids laugh when I use that word).
The problem is, they overlook an existential threat from an oppressive US GOVERNMENT thinking they have enough political influence to keep themselves safe. You can’t scream “Anti-Semitism” for protection when the party you vote for is run by anti-semites.
Mind-boggling that they don’t see this and keep voting D.
A natural union of “Live & Let Live” politics is there for the asking with Conservatives.
No defender of this bozo in the WH but people really need to stop spreading this story as he never used the word MUSLIM in that quote....
Actual quote from “The Audacity of Hope” [pg. 261]:
Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Thank you...I swore I would read all replies before posting and I didn’t.... Glad you corrected it. There are so many people who WANT to believe the sordid things that are said about this creep and when it’s pointed out that something printed is not true, they don’t care. They want to believe the worst!! What we do know about him is bad enough, we don’t need to spread the falsehoods. I’m not really sure he could be made to look any worse!
That is why I corrected myself t Arabs & Pakistanis...
