Conservative Liberal

FDR would have been a Republican today.

61% of American Jews…

… must be suicidal.  According to Jerusalem Post article from back in May, Gallop poll indicated that 61% of American Jews prefer Obama to McCain.  In my view, this makes 61% of American Jews outright suicidal in their blind support for the Democratic Party.  It’s not just Obama’s views on the current war, in which Israel is our staunchest ally.  It’s not just Hamas’ active support for Obama’s candidacy.

Right before my family vacation was about to start, Obama was visiting Israel.  As it is customary for dignitaries visiting Israel, he went to Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial.  Here is what Gateway Pundit posted about it:

Barack Obama refused to ensure Israel today that there will not be another Holocaust…
Right after a tour of Yad Vashem Memorial!
Jake Tapper at the Political Punch reported:

An Israeli journalist called out to Obama: “Can you ensure that there will be no second Holocaust?”

Obama walked into the museum’s main building without responding…

Once again an Israeli journalist asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee how he’d help prevent a second Holocaust. "Senator can you assure Israel that there will be no second Holocaust despite Iran’s threat to wipe us off the map?" he asked.

Obama demurred, saying that it wasn’t appropriate to answer the question there.

"This is Yad Vashem!" the journalist responded.

Obama said he would answer the question at a later press availability.

Gateway Pundit provided some more links and comments, so go there.  But can please someone explain to me why Obama refused to answer?  It seems that it would not be harmful for his campaign, indeed, it would politically expedient, to simply reply: "Yes, I will ensure that there will be no other Holocaust".  The Israeli journalist was absolutely correct: Yad Vashem is precisely the place to ask and answer the question like this one.  Yet, Obama chose not to answer.  To me it means that there are forces supporting Obama that would not accept his promise of ensuring that there will be no other Holocaust, even if that promise was given clearly out of political expediency.  Obama clearly does not want to risk losing support of those people.  To me this is pretty scary.  And, my fellow American Jews, those of you who will vote for Obama are in fact suicidal.  A comparison between you and Adam Czerniakow, the Chairman of the Jewish Council in Warsaw Ghetto is not fair to Adam Czerniakow, a very descent, albeit misguided, man.  Perhaps better comparison is between you and Yevsektsiya – the Jewish Section of the Soviet Communist Party – a bunch of Jews who blindly supported leftist ideology without realizing that it would eventually destroy themselves and everybody around them, as it most assuredly eventually did.

Long silence

I have to apologize to those who find my blog interesting for my long silence: between trying to finish up all I had to do at work prior to my family vacation and then my family vacation I simply did not have time.  Now hopefully I will be able to post something at least once a week, hopefully even more often.
