Can Jewish Americans Support Both Democrats and Israel?

As the Right embraces the Jewish state, the Left is pushing it away.

‘I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president,” vented Representative Steve King (R., Iowa) on Boston Herald Radio last week.

    No need to include Israel to pose the question. If you are a Jew and have a sense of self-preservation you cannot support the Democrats without being mentally ill.

    • Frau Katze

      I think a lot of really leftist Jews don’t care that much about Israel: a few might even oppose it’s existence.

    There is no such thing as “Jewish-Americans”. Either you swear allegiance to Judaism or America.
    Deal with it.

    • Is there such a thing as “Christian-Americans”?

      • FactsWillOut

        Either you hold to the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the Declaration of independence, or you hold the to New Testament.
        There are very few conflicts between the New Testament ind the Bill of Rights, etc.

          That’s because Christians wrote the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
          The Pastafarians came along afterwards.

      It’s dealt with through the phenomenon of dual citizenship, which the U.S. government recognizes.

    In answer to your question, while Obama and his lackeys are all Democrats, most Democrats are not Obama lackeys. Today, the Senate unanimously passed a bill that would restore and extend sanctions against Iran should the nuclear talks fail or Iran violate the agreement.

      The agreement allows them to continue developing nuclear weapons. The senate should reject the agreement. They can do that you know.

    There’s about 2 dozen countries that allow dual citizenship with the US. Moreover there are scads of other countries that have ingathering laws similar to Israel’s and no one seems to have a a problem with them. Odd, what’s different……ah yes….too too Jewy.

    Many Christians and Jews have replaced their religion with love of government.
