Seven Million Muslims

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech

Submitted by old guy (United States), Jun 11, 2009 at 12:52

If you want to play the numbers game as it appears Pres Obama did with his fig of 7 million muslims, I have some numbers for him. There are between 5 and 7 million Jews in the united states that identify as "Jewish". Depending on who did the survey the figures vary.

Whats more amazing is that there are some 8 million nominal Christians and various other people who known to them have a Jewish ancestor. i.e. Dick Cavett, Harrison Ford, Kate Hudson, Lou Boudro Neils Bohr, John Kerry Barry Goldwater and many many other people who are famous. As for those people who are not so famous, they are all around us. While not Jewish , upon hearing that I am Jewish, they bring up their Jewish ancestor proudly and in most cases indicate their suport of Israel and various Jewish causes.

Yes in some cases, they are ashamed of their "Jewish Blood" and try to distance themselfs from anything Jewish i.e. M. Allbright. But those people seem to be in the minority.

I think that if Pres Obama continues on the path of disengaging from Israel and kow towing to middleast Kings and dictators he will lose the support of this large group of people. But more importantly he will lose for the democrats the organizational and cash support that has kept this party a major player in past elections.
