Birds of a feather....

Reader comment on item: Democrats, Republicans, and Israel

For those wondering why the Jewish voting block would began to shift towards a more conservative base, one only needs to look at how the Jewish people generally view matters of politics, issues of state and life in general. I have always found the Jews to be reasonable people. They like to look at both sides of an issue and debate the finer points, until a reasonable conclusion is reached.

Unfortunately, the Arab people and the Liberals have left reason behind a long time ago. Now they (Liberals, and the Arab people) deal exclusively in emotion or feelings. When you deal exclusively in feelings there can be no debate nor middle ground. As more and more of the Jewish voting block realize this, you will see the trends Dr Pipes mentions in his article continue. As they say "birds of a feather flock together."
