Jewish voting block vastly exaggerated

Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran
in response to reader comment: An Administration Confused and Cynical at once

Mr. McGinley,

It seems to me quite humurous that there is such a vigorous effort by various administrations to curry the 'Jewish vote' in our country. If you look at the numbers, there are relatively small percentage of the country (I believe under 5 percent). The Muslim groups claim that they have a larger population. Add to that the fact that the majority of prominent Jewish figures are democrat contributors and influencers, firmly in the camp of the left and tend to be critical of Israel, and one begins to wonder just what the issue is. Alienating or maligning Israel is in vogue and socially acceptable, so why the need to pander to them?
