Romney Leads Obama Among American Jews In A New Poll
In an amazing poll today, Romney now leads Obama 44-40 among likely Jewish voters.
It shouldn’t really be a surprise as Obama has consistently been no friend of the Jews.
From the consistently bad personal relations between Obama and Netanyahu (Obama’s response to French President Sarkozy saying: “I can’t stand him. He’s a liar,” was “You’re tired of him — what about me? I have to deal with him every day”).
As Democrat New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind said on Fox News: “The bottom line is, let’s get this straight, for all Democrats across America – the president does not like the prime minister of the state of Israel – that is a fact that you cannot deny.” Hikind also said on that Fox appearance that he didn’t trust Obama to defend Israel’s security. Hikind said “The last time that the president said he had Israel’s back, I became very concerned.”
Obama has consistently denigrated Israel, and alienated America’s closest ally in the Middle East. In the early ‘80’s, Prime Minister Menachem Begin responded to American threats by asking: “Are we a vassal state of yours? Are we a banana republic?” By supporting Obama, people tell Israel that Obama can control and set rules for a foreign ally.
Ze’ev Jabotinsky once said “There is no mightier weapon than indifference, you will never conquer it” – thankfully the Jewish community is stepping up in this vital time.
