I have never understood the insistence of the majority of Jewish people in this country to consistently vote Democrat. Their unfailing allegiance to Democrat candidates is always counted on and taken for granted by Democrat leaders. Those same leaders have consistently shit upon Isreal. I just simply don't understand it.
Consider the last three Democrat Presidents:
Jimmy Carter - while in office, very much pro-Arab. He did broker some peace agreements during that time, but they almost all were to the detriment of Isreal. Since he has left office, he has become one of the most bitter anti-Semitic people who have ever been in high office in this country. His pro-Palestine, pro-arab, anti-Isreal stance on everything is legendary.
Billary Clinton - The Clintons weren't as out and out anti-Isreal during their tenure. However, what little was done about the Middle East during the 90s was also to Isreal's detriment in order to benefit the arab nations around the Jewish State. The most use the Clintons had for Isreal was around election time, when they hit up rich American Jews for hundreds of thousands of campaign dollars.
Barack Obama - This man just hates Isreal. That is plain to see. He has consistently chastised the Isrealis, demanded they make concessions, sided with Palestinians, arabs, and anyone else who stood against Tel Aviv. His demand today on TV that Isreal drop back to within its pre-1967 borders, without receiving any concessions from its enemies, is a slap in the face to that country, and it should be taken as such by all Jews in America. This man is sucking up to Islam, sucking up to the arab world, sucking up to terrorists, and trying his best to punish our best ally in the region. I truly believe the Barack Obama thinks the world would be a better place if Isreal didn't exist.
Now consider how Republican Presidents, all the way back to Richard Nixon, have treated Isreal. They treated the country like a valued ally, not a simmering enemy. They have defended Isreal, its right to exist, and its people in the face of overwhelming arab hatred. They have made sure that isreal has received the weapons, technology, and other aid it needs to continue to thrive in spite of being surrounded by enemies.
I'm not a Jew, so I may not be able to understand the finer points of this. But, it sure seems to me that American Jews would support candidates of the party that has consistently treated the Jewish Homeland as a friend, not a roadblock, an enemy, or just a source of campaign contributions.
