Progressive Jews in the United States and Europe no longer have much affinity for the existence and future of their long-ago homeland, Israel.
Many Jews who have not only denied their own surnames, changing them for more Gentile sounding names, have become quite disinterested in their historic legacy. I have even noticed that those cable TV specials featuring the Holocaust of WW II, which were broadcast quite often on TV, are being shown less frequently. I can understand that they may want to forget the ordeal and may not want to be thought of having their ancestors so victimized, so "out of sight, out of mind."
Unfortunately, it goes beyond forgetting the horrors of the Holocaust. More prosperous than ever American Jews have become more secularistic (even the non Orthodox religious ones), and wealthier. One way of looking at it is that the country of Israel is waaaaaay over there, and their wealth, and status is anchored in the United States. So, why care if Israel, surrounded by natural born killers who have sworn to "push Israel into the sea," etc and simultaneously support Israel?
Joe Wurzelbacker, aka Joe The Plumber, had to come out, for God's sake and state the obvious that, "A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for the death of Israel." Staying in typical bad form, media and publishing Jews are pounding him for the pro Israel comment.
How can you explain how the LA Times and its publisher, Eddy Hartenstein, not publishing a PLO leader's praise for Obama?
The Los Angeles Times is refusing to release a videotape that it says shows Barack Obama praising a Chicago professor who was an alleged mouthpiece for the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was a designated terrorist group in the 1970s and '80s."Or are American Jews not mindful that Hamas is another terrorist endorser of Obama? How about CAIR's (Council On American Islamic Relations)?
How about Israel hater Louis Farrakhan's praise of Obama? Jesse Jackson? Momar Khadafi goes way beyond the call of duty in praising Obama.
"Here is a pro life Muslim women's group that endorses Barack Hussein Obama.Pro life?Columbus Ohio, 10/12/08 - Today the National Association of Muslim American Women (NAMAW), the United State’s only conservative pro-family, pro-life Muslim
Women’s organization is pleased to announce its endorsement of candidate Barack Obama for President of the United States.
A recent Gallup Poll states that 63% of those American Jews voting for Obama consider the country of Israel as "highly important." Only 42% consider Israel's importance as being "very high." Why they have always had to drift way left in recent history e.g. Soviet Communism, spying against America during the Cold War, and pushing socialist progressivism in the government, media, Hollywood, publishing, academics and law is beyond by understanding. It has always lead to severe reaction.
ELECTION 2008Mideast leader: Obama a Muslim who studied in Islamic schools Says Arab world campaign contributions 'may enable him to win U.S. presidency' Posted: October 17, 20089:00 pm Eastern By Aaron Klein© 2008 WorldNetDaily JERUSALEM –
"Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim of Kenyan origins who studied in Islamic schools and whose campaign may have been financed by people in the Islamic and African worlds, Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi said during a recent televised national rally.We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that [he will know] that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs," Gadhafi said."

"There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama," said Gadhafi in little-noticed remarks he made at a rally marking the anniversary of the 1986 U.S. air raid on his country.The remarks, translated
by the Middle East Media Research Institute, were aired on Al Jazeera in June. All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man," continued Gadhafi. "They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.
Modern western Jewry has divorced themselves from their faith, ancestry, and tradition as they have done so many innumerable times in history. Read the Bible to see how God responded. As a Christian, I must also say that it is more shameful that one out of two people who profess to be Christian are voting for Obama. The Bible also projects what happens to Christians who turn from God.
