Wonder On

Reader comment on item: Democrats, Republicans, and Israel
in response to reader comment: Just wondering...

Submitted by John R. (United States), May 23, 2006 at 14:57

YOU: Don't American Jews vote overwhelmingly Democratic?

ME: I think so. In fact, I think they're famous for being liberals in many issues. I do not know now though.

YOU: From what I've read, many American Jews actually oppose the State of Israel (the reason why is beyond me).

ME: Where did you read this?

YOU: So is there really a shift towards voting Republican among Jews in the U.S.?

ME: Dr Pipes makes a good case with the surveys.

YOU: The article didn't mention the Afro-American community... Since they're said to generally vote Democratic, are they also rather pro-Palestinian?

ME: I think they are more symphatetic to the Palestinians because the Pals are people of color and the Jews are white. I think.
