Despite His Plans to Hand Over Jerusalem and Holy Land to Terrorists, Obama Still Enjoys Strong Support From Jews

In May Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas-Fatah terrorist alliance.

Of course, his radical position was very unpopular with a most Americans.

Despite his efforts to hand over Jerusalem and the Holy Land to terrorists, Barack Obama still enjoys strong support from Jewish Americans.
The Hill reported:

President Obama enjoys strong, steady support from Jewish Americans amid concerns that he faced an erosion in their backing.

A new Gallup Poll found Monday that 60 percent of Jewish Americans said they approve of the way Obama is handling his job, a figure that’s relatively consistent with the high level of support he’s enjoyed from that bloc this year.

Thirty-two percent of Jewish Americans said they disapprove of the way the president is handling his job, a figure that hasn’t really jumped since May 19, when Obama delivered a major speech outlining a peace process for Israelis and Palestinians.

That speech was sharply rebuked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and spurred speculation — especially on the right — that Jewish voters who had been aligned with Democrats might shift their support away from Obama.

Sad.

The destruction of Israel is at hand and Jewish Americans still march blindly behind Obama.

    UN-FREAKING believable….

  • Not surprised at all. Because most U.S. Jews are liberal and the for Jewish liberals liberalism trumps Judaism every time. Like the scorpion that drowned himself in that old story. They will go to the 21st century gas chambers singing “Yes We Can”; it’s just their nature.

    I dont’ get it. Am I missing something? Maybe these guys aren’t up to date on what is happening? I wish a reporter would ask one of these people to explain themselves. Have a majority of people gone mad in our country? Things just don’t make sense anymore.

    Jewish American support Obama because they live in America not Israel.

  • decentAmerican

    I’m sure it surprises even the racist Democrats themselves, that they continue to get this undying loyalty from this group that they treat like trash. And Jewish Americans are supposed to be a smart bunch? Maybe they are smart…..or cunning. To support the most antisemitic president in modern history, one who has proven with his lack of support for Israel, insulting Netanayu repeatedly, friends with known antisemitics like Farrakhan and Khalidi, and yet they continue to give their support?

    I will say again, I consider such Democrat Jewish Americans to be in the same vein as those Jews in Nazi Germany who turned in their friends and neighbors, in order to win favor and save themselves. There is a special place in hell for those opportunists who turn their backs on their heritage. In this case, by supporting BO, they are turning their backs on both Israel AND America.

    It would be interesting to see the statistics on American Jewish acceptance of Obama broken down by religious observance. I have no doubt their would be a huge difference between secular Jews, Reformed Jews and Orthodox Jews since most of their attitudes differ like night from day.

    With this news, I see no reason why any more Holocaust memorials should be erected, nor should anyone bother to go to any Holocaust Museums. It seems the Jewish people have quickly forgotten what they have been trying to remind us all about.

    American Jews are like American Catholics, pretenders. By and large both groups fail to uphold their faith in their daily lives. Not because we are all sinful beings, but because they are pretenders putting on their religion like a set of clothes and then putting it off when not convenient.

    The only other explanation is that American Jews are insane.

  • Joe College

    It doesn’t matter in any political sense. Jews are between 1 and 2 percent of the American population. If Jews vote 60/40 or even 75/25 for Obama, how many votes are that?

    By the way, Jews are about 0.2% of the world population. That’s two-tenths of one percent.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. If the kenyan fraud gets reelected I fear that they may regret supporting him. Unbelieveable how some peoples minds work! I call them TRAITORS to their country and TRAITORS to the United States. Most of all TRAITORS to God! Maybe to cover their Chicken poop a$$es they converted to the muslim cult!

    But…but….maybe they are lieing about it and will donate money to the kenyan fraud but vote republican when they get in the voteing booth! 🙂

    With very few exceptions, American Jews don’t give a hoot about what is good for Israel. If Israel disappeared tomorrow they would shed few tears

    Given the position Obama is putting Christians in in the Mideast, it is unbelievable that about half of all Americans still support him…

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_obama_job_approval-1044.html

    The reason for Christian and Jewish support for Obama is the biased media. Neither Christians nor Jews who read the regular media have the slightest idea what he is up to in the Middle East.

    But your point is clear, and the Democrats know it. They can treat the Jews with the utmost contempt and derision, knowing they they will get their support.

    American Jews make up a large number of the so-called ‘intellectuals’. They are the second leg of the Demodonk useful idiot voting bloc so its not unreal to think they walk in lock step with The Party.

  • Highlander

    These are leftists first, Jews second – if at all. Remember, these are, for the most part, highly educated, self-proclaimed intellectuals. When they meet they compare college degrees and alma maters like trading cards. To abandon Obama is to admit a mistake – which they are intellectually incapable of doing. There isn’t a more close-minded group of people on the planet.

  • t-wolf

    Sorry, these Americans are only BIOLOGICALLY Jews. They know nothing of , and practice even less their God-given religion.

    Eating bagels and lox or munching on Carr’s water crackers at a Passover seder while intermarrying at over the 50% rate does not make one jewish. Divorcing and marrying without a religiously madated jewish GET (legal jewish divorce document) just produces religiously proscribed bastards, not permitted to marry into the jewish people.

    There is a definite split among the jewish people today. Those that left the fold to join reform, conservative and unitarian movements are no longer theologically jewish. These sects invariably demoted the bible as man-given, not God presented. As such, they neither practice, marry, divorce or see themselves as jewish, unless it is to castigate jewish concepts against abortion ( permitted only until the 40th day of pregnancy when, according to jewish tradition, the fetus ris endowed with a soul), homosexual marriage or jewish rights to their biblically granted homeland.

    Judaism is more than just a germanic sounding last name. It is more than just supporting social conscience movements. It is in knowing, anticipating and advancing the ultimate destiny of the jewish people: eventual redemption for mankind under God.

    The overwhelming preponderance of so-called American jewry have no future among the Nation of Israel. They have, and continue to profane the sacred. When one removes God from religion and replaces it with man religious practices become optional, like a chinese restaurant menu ( three from column A, two from column B). That is why they can support Obama. They too, no longer recognize the evil inherent in partial birth abortions, the sacredness of holy matrimony….

    The minority of jews against Obama are either religious, religiously oriented or retain a modicum of jewish religous ideology.

    ………………………………

    Both here touching on the same question. Well, that’s the the problem, isn’t it? There is an explanation.

    A reminder: Every church is made up of three groups:
    1) a very small group of committed Christians
    2) a larger group of nominal Christians
    3) the rest are happy pagans.

    This breakdown applies to Jews as well, and frankly, the entire world.

    That explains why so many who call themselves Catholic will support abortion, why so many Jews support Liberalism over Israel. Why it has been easy to blame “Christians” for supporting Hitler. When the going gets tough, the happy pagans will get mean fast, bully the nominal Christians (in name only) who have no actual spiritual backbone, to GET the committed Christians. The “happy pagans” as the “nominals” cowered and hid, threw committed Christians into the death camps for the crime of refusing to cooperate with the slaughter. Guilty parties do not want even ONE witness who speaks out that what they are doing is wrong.

    Confirming this, there is very little difference between Evangelical Catholics, Evangelical Protestants and Orthodox Jews. They all put scripture first.

    So, there is a sorting out of all people, including the Jews. Who is with God and who is against. It’s not like that has never happened before. Maybe it’s time to watch “Ten Commandments” again just to refresh and watch Charleton Heston as Moses roaring out to the camp of partying Israelites, “CHOOSE!” The majority rejected God. As will the majority of the world. Joshua, after conquering the Promised Land, handing over leadership to the next generation counseling the people to follow God, but whatever they chose it wouldn’t make a difference to him, as he said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    Few will be saved. “The road to destruction is wide, many will travel by it.” It’s too bad, the alternative is well-described and ought to scare the daylights out of anyone, but it seems too unreal and remote, so it’s shrugged off. If Jesus himself couldn’t convince people to turn away from their own destruction, it won’t be any easier for fallible humans to be any more convicting. “It is easier for God to move a mountain than to move the heart of a man.” It’s a free choice. Jesus sorrowed, for the waste of it, but he stated frequently it is the reality of human nature.

    Work with those one can work with. Even our own army knows by experience that a small band of true warriors is worth more than an army of 100 times bigger but of recalcitrant half-trained men with weapons. One, scruffy, literally run down Elijah was against 400 wealthy, well-fed, well-dressed priests of Baal and destroyed them all. ELijah didn’t look like much at that point, but God had his back. Game over.

    Be happy to be amongst those few who love Israel. Support all brothers and sisters of like mind. Do not fret about the others, most will chose badly, and will appear to be winning, but who wins in the end is what counts, not the deceptive victories in the meantime.

  • Anyone surprised at these poll results simply do not understand American Jews. They are LIBERAL, do you get it LIBERAL. They are by and large irreligious and many down right atheist.
    The Holy Land to them is something Evangelical Christians are concerned about. There is also a deep anti-Christian bias in their make-up that prohibits them from even considering supporting Republicans and/or conservatives candidates since both these groups are “religious” to some extent.

  • czekmark

    So American jews who represent about 2% of the population are stupid to support Obama. How about the other 38 or so percent that also support him? Seems to me that the Jews don’t have a exclusive claim on stupid.

  • mercador

    Its like the leopard stripes. They can’t be changed, only God can do that. God still has His children’s back because He promised them. “I will never leave you nor forsake you”. They are disobedient and God will deal with them, not us.

  • Buffalobob

    #32 Edward, you nailed it. “There is also a deep anti-Christian bias in their make-up that prohibits them from even considering supporting Republicans and/or conservatives candidates since both these groups are “religious” to some extent”. I have heard this from other Jewish sources, this IS the dirty little secret.

  • valerie

    During the primary run-up to the presidential election, when potential Candidate Obama was swearing up and down that he would withdraw American troops from Iraq on a logistically impossible timetable, his campaign was instructing its operatives to say “We know we can’t do this.”

    During the campaign itself, a letter misrepresenting the discussion about whether BO was a Muslim apostate (because his father was a Muslim) as a rumor that BO was a practicing Muslim, was sent to a lot of rabbis, and at least one of them read parts of it during a service.

    I thought the letter was particularly disingenuous, because Jews all know how to make the distinction between practicing religion by choice and being born into one. They have a similar set of rules, although they don’t set up governments that kill people for converting.

    There were other incidents where BO and the Obama campaign gave out distinctly different messages. That was no accident.

    Is the same thing happening now? Is there a different message going out specifically to rabbis and Jewish groups? If so, we need to know the details. What’s the medium, what’s the message?

    #35, #32: You’re right. Too many of them hate Christians and Republicans more than they love their faith/culture/people. I used to joke that if Hitler and Arafat were running on the Democratic ticket, they’d still get most of the Jewish vote.

    Of course there are other factors. Most of the Jewish folks I’ve met are urban and marginally religious at best, like virtually every other self-identified leftist in this country. Blacks and 50%of Catholics vote against their interests again and again because of their own prejudices against *those* people.

I think maybe this poll is phony and is being used to legitimize Obama’s policies, and scare conservatives. He isn’t going to get re-elected, take some time and write down what he has done to this country! I suspect this poll is another phony propaganda piece…

  • saveus

    they must have only polled Democrats
    this many Jews aren’t that stupid

  • Arch

    Actually, this is good news. The 60% is down from the 78% that voted for Obama. Most American Jews are unhappy with Obama’s treatment to Israel and many of his major contributors have told him so. Secular Jews tend to be very liberal and will support him or any democrat with blind loyalty.

    Also always look at basis of these polls. The Gallup sample size was small (350) and based upon adults rather than the 1,500 likely voters numbers Scott Rassmusen uses in his surveys. The margins of error ±7% rather than 4%, respectively are the result of the basis.

    I respectfully differ with Joe College. Although the Jewish American population is not a significant percent overall, they are very important in several large states. Had Florida and New York Jews split 50-50, McCain would be president.

Leftist jews do not represent or uphold any of our true religious values and beliefs. leftist Jewish views stem from this resentment of being jewish and that i believe stems from a resentment of G-d. just keep this in mind when you read these kind of articles.

  • Joe College

    I see nobody has responded to my observation that in this Christian nation about half of all citizens — almost all of which are Christians — still support Obama despite his policies which are making the Mideast a no-go zone for Christians; despite his policies of aligning with forces es that are burning churches and torturing Christians.

    Why is that? Are Christians stupid? Are they traitors? Are they fools? Are they blind?

    The answer is the media is biased towards Obama, and the media does not print the truth about what is going on in the Mideast because it would make people question Obama’s sincerity.

    If all you read is the regular media, you will like Obama whether you are a Christian or a Jew. It’s garbage-in garbage-out. Jews accumulate in the big cities where there is even less accuracy in media.

    Typical. Then again, an entire subculture was destroyed by the Great Society and they vote ninety percent for their destroyers.

    Your comments are very well taken, but I have no intention of remaining in the minority.

    I admire what the Jews have done with their little country. They are industrious, intelligent, ethical, fair-minded, and fierce. They treat their own minorities better than the surrounding countries treat their majorities. They do spend money on armaments, but they also build homes and gardens. They value justice, and practice mercy.

    Contrary to the lies told about them, they bought their land; they did not steal it. The portion of their land obtained by conquest was obtained only after attack from outsiders. Their rights to their land are legitimate under current, existing law, without reference to any historical precedent. They have dealt more than fairly with their neighbors.

    I admire Israel for what they have done with their country in this lifetime. I don’t have to believe God granted them their land to see that they are legitimate title-holders, and good stewards.

    But Jesus did say “By their fruits you shall know them,” and I consider that excellent advice.

  • eckleburg

    #32 You are correct. Liberal Jews have an inexplicable animosity to believing Christians. They would prefer to coddle to hate filled Islamists than side with Christians who support Israel. A liberal Jew gets his information from People Magazine. He is very trendy: He must wear the latest fashionable clothes. Eat at the fashionable restaurants. Listen to the trendiest music. Be politically correct no matter what. He is a status seeker and a social climber. He knows exactly how much money every other Jew has. Wealth is status so he fawns and grovels to the wealthy. In short the liberal Jew as well as most liberals in general are shallow, self-centered, weak,disingenuous and banal people. That is why they vote for Obama.

    I swear these people enjoy playing victims. I think ever since Hitler, they’ve suffered from Stockholm Syndrome. I don’t think they have any self respect. It’s really sickening.

    “In psychology, Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a real paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors; sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors as an act of kindness.”

    But Jews do control key parts of society- the media and the bench. If you don’t believe me, ask them, who would deny it?

    The GOP needs to learn to stop pandering to Jews and to blacks, both groups will never embrace the message of economic and personal freedom and responsibility. If they want to come on board the freedom train, great, if not, screw them. But sadly, we let both of them get away with massive lawlessness, the blacks with “flash mobs” and the Jewish lawyers/judges working to overthrow the constitution. Why?

    Big Jewish donors are more relevant to Obama’s re-election than is the Jewiish vote. As stated among the commentors, don’t lump all Jews among these naive Lib-loving Jews in Name Only. Religious & Zionistic Jews will not vote for Obama, no way.

    Aside from the JINO who worship Liberalism more than any kind of Judaism, many Jews just inherited their grandparents’ tendency to vote democrat a la FDR & Truman…the Jews have not changed this habit even though today’s Dem party is not the same as Truman’s or Jackson’s Dem party. They are creatures of habit…ironically, non-progressive in that they do not change w/ the times & face today’s reality of a very intolerant, anti-religious, anti-Israel Dem party.

    As a constitutional conservative, my bias is for Palin who unapologetically supports Israel, proudly dons the Star of David & understands the Jude0-Christian foundation of our founding documents. As a President Palin, her belief that might makes strength & that America needs a strong ally Israel on the forefront of fighting our shared Islamist enemies, she would let Israel finally win a war to victory w/o America intervention, demanding a quick ceasefire, leaving Israel to fight another day.
