[su_right_ad]The Israeli Prime minister is exploiting the rift between Republicans and Democrats, and firmly siding with the right, even though the overwhelming majority of American Jews vote Democratic.

Some American Jews, to be sure, support the Republicans, but for most, to back a party so hostile to minority and immigrant rights is all but unnatural. It’s not in their DNA. This egalitarianism also informs many American Jews’, and American Zionists’, support for a two-state solution establishing a Palestinian state that abuts Israel…

For now, Israel’s prime minister is aligning himself with one of America’s two camps. It’s not the camp that commands — or even can command — the support of most American Jews. That will pose a problem for Israel.[su_center_ad]

    Here’s hoping that the people of the U.S.A. throw the right-wing criminal tyrants out on their corrupt asses the next election cycle… following the fine example of the people of Israel.

    If someone had done that during Bush’s Presidency, I can’t imagine they’d be all ok with it. It’s disgraceful. I really disliked Bush, but I would be pissed if he was treated the way this President has been treated. I’m really disgusted. I’ve always been a middle of the road indie but I find that everyday, there is nothing … and I mean nothing appealing in today’s GOP. Everyday, it’s something incredibly hypocritical or a bald face lie, or worse … makes no logical sense. They’re making Reagan look sane.

      “I really disliked Bush, but I would be pissed if he was treated the way this President has been treated.” well, that would be like picking on a child who knows not how to defend himself.

          I still chuckle a little at that. Not that he got assaulted but that he’s still got good frat house reflexes.

    Bebe couldn’t care less about Israel or the Jewish people. He’s in in for the power, recognition and money – like most GOPers.
