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.

  1. Good Grief, 61%, I thought this number was much lower.
    Any Jew who is supporting Obama should have his head examined.

  2. Or could it be that the Jews simply disagree that the Republican party has their best interests at heart (and with good reason, based on what they’ve done to the country). Nah, they must just be suicidal, since they don’t think what you want them to think.

  3. With all the negative youtube videos, here is one that expresses our feelings about Gov. Palin.

  4. Eric, you spoke of American Jews. But who are you Jews? Are you a religious or an ethnic group? Or both at the same time? What is the definition of “a Jew”?

    Secondly, yes, they are wrong to vote for the Dems. But even before the poll was published, Dubya had arrogantly called on Israel to withdraw to pre-67 borders, and a few days ago, after this poll was published, Dubya refused to supply the IAF with tankers and bombs or to open the Iraqi airspace for the IAF.

  5. Well, I’m Jewish and I support Obama. Obama’s words as reported to Haaretz were as follows:

    “My view is that the United States’ special relationship with Israel obligates us to be helpful to them in the search for credible partners with whom they can make peace, while also supporting Israel in defending itself against enemies sworn to its destruction,”

    This mirrors my position which is that ultimately Israel has the right to defend itself but that there really is no good military solution to the conflict. This is not a far left position and is shared by Shimon Peres. The Israelis have the capacity to strike unilaterally at their enemies with or without the U.S. Presidents ok, though there actions must be provably justified in order to remain in good standing within a brotherhood of nations. These are the standards we hold other nations to and should, accordingly, hold ourselves to the same standard.

  6. Well, which “brotherhood of nations” are you talking about, exactly? Is it the same one that did not give a damn when the Jews of Europe were being rounded up and murdered? The French, for example, were busy rounding up the Jews before the Germans even asked.
    So, go ahead, support your beloved Comrade Obama with the rest of your Yevsektsiya. I hope I will never have to say: “I told you so”.
