It’s always been a mystery to me why the Jewish people pull the lever for the Democrats. Democrats are notorious for seeming to have little time for Israel, going so far as to seem blatantly anti-Israel. And, when push comes to shove, Democrats seem to always embrace Israel’s most bitter enemies, while simultaneously tying Israel’s hands when it comes to defending themselves. This has been demonstrated all over again this week by Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu and choosing instead to visit Letterman and campaign in Vegas.
The American Spectator shared these statistics concerning Jewish voters:
Over the past five presidential elections, Democratic candidates have been able to rely on between 75% to 80% of the voting age Jewish population to support them. That’s not as high as FDR who received between 80% to 90% of the Jewish vote even though he didn’t lift a finger to rescue Jews persecuted in Europe during the WWII despite the best efforts of his Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau.
Despite these numbers, I don’t believe it’s a lost cause for Republicans. As the Middle East comes to an even greater and scarier boiling point, hopefully the Jewish people will realize that it has been and always will be the Republicans and Conservatives who have their backs each and every time. It’s time to continue reiterating that message.
A new advertisement scheduled to run in Florida makes the case that President Obama has pushed the Democratic Party to embrace anti-Israel policies, according to a copy of the ad obtained by the Free Beacon.
In the coming days, the Emergency Committee for Israel, a pro-Israel advocacy organization, will release an ad entitled, “Whose Democratic Party?”
The spot, which will air during Sunday’s football game between the Miami Dolphins and the Oakland Raiders in what is being described as a “significant ad buy,” accuses Obama of leading his party to weaken the U.S.-Israel alliance.
Coming on the heels of the Democrat’s controversial omission and contentious reinsertion of language in the party platform declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the ECI ad asks voters: “Is this still your Democratic Party?”
