Like the Jews of Europe who put kept their heads in the sand when Hitler was rising, American Jews who are overwhelmingly liberals are doing the same now. Sitting safely here in America they either don’t understand the ramifications of a nuclear Iran for Israel and by extension the world, or don’t want to.
