Obama has lost a quarter of Jewish supporters

Two polls. Same answer. Obama has lost at least a quarter of 2008 Jewish voters. In fact, rather historically, a large segment of those now turning to Romney have voted for Democrats in at least the last four Presidential elections.

“American Jews have always picked the liberal side due to their own history of suffering,” said Joel Leyden, Director of Jews4MittRomney.com. “American Jews have always perceived the Democratic Party as being more sensitive and understanding to human issues. But after four years of no hope and no change, of unemployment at its worst rate in over 30 years, and with Israel being threatened with nuclear weapons by Iran, the Jewish vote is now going through an historic transition.”

The Investors Business Daily poll was taken before the great debate and found that a quarter of Jewish voters were switching their votes to Romney. The INA poll (searching for link, heard it discussed on the radio here) was taken the day after the debate and shows the lowest support for a Democratic candidate among Jews since Jimmy Carter. Those numbers have probably decreased further now as, like for the rest of the country, it took most people a few days for the Denver Horror Show to really sink in and now the Benghazi Horror Show is just starting to hit the stage.

The INA poll shows that nearly 50% of Jewish voters polled were either unsure of who they will vote for now or have firmly switched their support to Romney.

    Good! But honestly, no Jew or anyone who opposes anti-Semitism should vote for Obama. Obama is clearly, clearly anti-Semitic.

    Not long ago, I pointed out an article on an attack on a Jewish community in Sweden.
    Today, I point another one in France. In both cases, the wrongly-called “moderate” Muslims were directly involved in these attacks!!
    Here read “Prosecutor: French terror cell planned Syria trip” at http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4291161,00.html
    In this article, it says:
    “New details about French Islamists behind grenade attack on kosher market”!! So moderate these Muslims, isn’t it?!!

    Again, and it is worth repeating, I have basically nothing against Muslims per se. BUT, after many thousands of true stories that I read related to Muslims acting against Jews, against Israelis and against the State of Israel these past decades, I have now enough facts, enough references in my memory to conclude, without the shadown of a doubt, that the so-called “moderate” Muslims do not exist!!
    These “moderate” Muslims are simply a fantasy that many Jews and non-Jews have adopted for the sake of being “politically correct” with other minorities!! Oh, yes, you will sometimes read an exception in an online article but that is that, an exception that does not make up for the majority of the Muslims who hate Jews, hate Israelis, and hate the State of Israel!! That is the sad reality that many Jews and even many Israelis do not want to acknowledge fully!!

    Even the current Israeli government with Netanyahu at its head is kind of blind to these basic facts, to these basic truths!!
    When you hear Netanyahu himself in his 2011 speech at the UN declares that the State of Israel would be the first one to wecome the creation of a Palestinian state inside Israel, in the West Bank and Gaza, you see how deeply misguided even a guy like Netanyahu is. Same for most of the members of the current Israeli government!!

    When you reach a threshold of proofs for a particular position that you have on Muslims (I could give a number for this threshold and it would be more than 50,000 proofs in case of Muslims), then you reach a point where you can conclude logically, rationally, with a very high likelihood, that your point of view on Muslims is correct, accurate, based on facts that I have accumulated over the years.

    Conclusion: now you can understand better my positions on Muslims because you know that they are based on true facts, not on just a few facts but on many, many facts that have been accumulated not just for a few years but over several decades in my memory. And these facts lead me to the points of view that I have on Muslims and the fact:
    —that Muslims are not, for the majority of them, moderate;
    —that Muslims living in Israel are a curse for Israel,
    —and that there is no future for Israelis and Muslims in Israel except more Israeli blood being spelt in the future;
    —and more similar conclusions concerning Muslims.

    WE, JEWS, AS MUCH AS WE WANT TO BE FAIR WITH OTHERS, WE MUST BE FAIR WITH OURSELVES FIRST and we must conclude that Muslims are, for most of them (99% of them!!), evil because of their hate of the Jewish people, hate of the Israelis, and hate of the State of Israel.
    More, Muslims are also evil to non-Jews, in particular to Christians with whom many Jews have married and have strong ties, because of Muslims’ also hate for non-Muslims!! One example would be Iran that not only hates Israel but hate non-Muslims, in particular the USA!

    Jews are Jews,
    American Jews are American Jews,
    Therefore, American Jews are NOT Jews.

    • Eitan (@EitanDC) says :

      That’s a stupid thing to say…

      But I’m really encouraged that Jews in the U.S. are starting to wake up. I wonder what its going to take for the rest… I honestly think education is problem, I don’t think Jews in the U.S. know enough about Israel.

      • israeliminx says :

        Eitan — agreed. Most Jewish Americans have never been here and don’t have the remotest clue about life here or the issues facing our country. If anything, given the lefty circles they travel in, over the past nearly 20 years, their view is more distorted and unrelated to reality than the average Americans view.

  4. WipeOutHamasOnceAndForAll says :

    Even in the deepest recess of a Jewish person’s heart and soul who could even be as far as one could possibly be concerning anything Jewish or Israeli, there is ALWAYS something I could call a “Jewish soul” lurking, hiding in this “far-away” Jewish person that I describe and this Jewish soul never dies, he/she is always alive even if he/she is in an extremely dim light at a particular time or most of the time for this far-away Jewish person that I describe.

    Yes, no matter how detached are many American Jews from Israel or from anything Jewish, each of them is fully part of the Jewish people through their unique Jewish soul and each of them is valuable to the entire Jewish people even if many of them are or have chosen at a particular time of their life to remain silent, dormant. The dormant Jewish soul is always alive and well and ready to take action if necessary.

  5. WipeOutHamasOnceAndForAll says :

    This current presidential election is not about Democrats or Republicans, it is about doing what is good and necessary to save America financially!! Therefore, it is my hope that American Jews will use their brain this time instead of using their idol, a political party, be it X or Y!!

    Make no mistakes, if Obama is elected, get ready to add $6 TRILLION TO THE CURRENT US DEFICIT THAT IS AT $16 TRILLION AND COUNTING!! With such a huge financial debt, be ready for a massive financial crisis in case Obama is re-elected.

  6. Lynne says :

    Rupert Murdock has tweeted that if Obama is re-elected, it will be a nightmare for Israel. It will be a nightmare for the US, too, and for the rest of the world.
