American Jews Cannot Be Counted on For Israel's Security... And Israel Knows it.

It's embarrassing but true: Just as the vast majority of American Jews could not be counted on to stand up for European Jews during the height of the Holocaust, a solid majority of American Jews also cannot be counted on to put Israel's survival anywhere near the top of their concerns when going to the voting booth in November, or on any other occasion for that matter. Proof positive of that can be found in the polling data.

The Jerusalem Post pretty much summed this up recently in an editorial titled: We HOPE Obama will be supportive of Israel... we KNOW McCain will. That American Jews would be willing to gamble with "hope" above a proven commodity when it comes to Israel's survival, tells you exactly how important Israel ranks with a majority of Jews in the United States. I could hardly imagine a clearer test than this election. From the beginning of Israel's existence, only a small minority of American Jews courageously took to the cause of it's survival. Most American Jews have other causes on their minds: Abortion on demand, getting rich, socialism (I know, it's a contradiction), gun control, environmentalism, Liberalism and Democratic party politics have, to most, become a complete substitute for actual Judaism.

That is the sad state of affairs with American Jews. AIPAC tries to put on a brave face as if they represent a vast consensus of American Jews, when in fact, it's more like 20% of American Jews who rank Israel near the top of their concerns. The real force behind Israel's cause in the US comes not from the Jewish community but from the tens of millions of Americans, mostly but not exclusively religious Christian's and others who see Israel as an extension of American values, of Western values and a miraculous, historic redemption in our lifetime. Israel has been wise to look well beyond American Jews for the support it needs to survive.


  1. "...those who Bless Israel will be Blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed.."

    Any second thoughts?

    Considering Barack Hussein Obama is simply a cheat, con artist, deceiver, deluder, dissimulator, equivocator, fabler, fabricator, fabulist, false witness, falsifier, fibber, maligner, misleader, perjurer, phony, prevaricator, promoter, storyteller, trickster.

    Obamalies or Lies Obama tells

  2. As a Mexican, Jewish, female, I am saddened and disgusted that most American Jews are too foolish to see Obama for what he is. I am mystified to the delusion that the Left is the place of compassion when more and more, it is simply the place for deception and superficiality. May God help us all.
