The sea-change in American Jewry

I have often written about the current dismaying trajectory of the American Jewish community. With some three quarters of them identifying with the universalist, left-wing mindset, both in religious and secular life, they are positioning themselves on the wrong side of the war of civilisation being waged against the west from within while their children are progressing from indifference towards Israel to outright hostility. So much is the common source of much anguished discussion amongst those who care about this decline.

An astute and moving article in The American Spectator takes this one stage further. Dov Fischer, an adjunct professor of law and American orthodox rabbi, writes that a huge change is under way amongst American Jews analagous to the way the southern Democrats turned into Republican voters. It took them a century but, eventually repelled by the Democratic party, they did it.
