No, Obama will NOT lose Jewish support

Reader comment on item: Obama Turns on Israel
in response to reader comment: What Will The American Jewish Leadership Response Be?

Submitted by Steve Klein (United States), Nov 9, 2013 at 08:07

If history is any guide Mark, American Jews are wedded to the left by and large. Nothing will shake or disturb this love-affair. Most Americans both Jews and non-Jews (I believe foolishly) see a nuclear Iran as a greater threat to Israel than to the United States. Short-term that could be true. What happens when Iran multiplies many hundreds of nukes?

Polls indicate, Israel and her security is far down the list of priority issues for most American Jewish voters. This is very sad but true. So in answer to your question, what will the American Jewish leadership's response be?

Continued support for Barack Obama is my best guess. Even should Iran test its first nuclear device, Jews will stand by him. Am I too cynical?
