American Jews and America

Reader comment on item: White House Mischief

===Why do sixty-five percent of American Jews support Obama? Am I to assume that most American Jews do not support Israel and do not consider Jerusalem its capital? I am genuinely curious about this and I hope somebody can help me understand why any Jew would support a president who is Israel's enemy and who obviously adores the Islamic horde, including the Muslim Brotherhood, which spawned every modern Islamic terrorist organization. These offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood have been at war with Israel for over sixty years so isn't it rather strange for our president to support terrorists instead of Israel and even stranger for American Jews to support Obama?====

Nice post. And 8 out of 10 American Jews voted for Obama.

According to Alan Dershowitz, a popular lawyer and blogger, most American Jews do not care about. Israel. America is first and foremost to them. So it comes down to America's best interest as opposed to Israel, it comes down to issues in this country and it so happens their beliefs are more line with Democrats and Liberals.
