Election crunch time is here, and when push comes to shove it seems even some Jewish Democrats are increasingly concerned about a 2nd Obama term. Albeit taken from a very small sample size and likely holding a substantial margin of error, a recent remarkable poll showed Romney leading Obama by 44-40 among likely Jewish voters.

New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, an orthodox Jew who is a strong supporter of Israel recently appeared on Fox News saying that: “The bottom line is, let’s get this straight, for all Democrats across America – the president does not like the prime minister of the state of Israel – that is a fact that you cannot deny.” Hikind also said that he didn’t trust Obama to defend Israel’s security “The last time that the president said he had Israel’s back, I became very concerned.”

A great 18-minute viral video, entitled “Absolutely Uncertain“ questioning the wisdom of those American Jews who plan to vote for Obama has attracted over 2 million views in the two weeks since it has been released.  Owning a public relations agency, I know that this amount of views is very significant for a viral video. The video is narrated by a 23-year-old Jewish New Yorker, Irina Kot (a member of RAJE, the Russian-American Jewish Experience), who voted for Obama in 2008.

Kot is the voice of many American Jews of all ages who are – rightfully – questioning a President who called on Israel to return to the 1967 borders and has been no friend to the Jewish State during his 4 years in the White House.  The video is very well done, and features interviews with journalists and politicians, including Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz, former Mayor of New York City Ed Koch, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Rep. Eliot Engel as well as relevant news clips.

The video which can be viewed below is catchy, interesting and provides food for thought for all American Jews.

    He is Barack Hussein Obama. From his name it is obvious where he stands on the Middle East. People were warned before the last election that he would not be a supporter of Israel – if he gets a second term, as he told the Russians, he will have more flexibility and what then for Israel? I am not a Jew but I believe for world security America needs to support Israel.

    At around 8:40 into the video it proves it is propaganda. The CNN reporter was stating Obama personally insisted that Jerusalem is Israel’s Capitol be part ot the Democratic platform. This video set up the words to say just the opposite of the truth.
    Republicans like Romney will support Israel only to bring back their savior Obama’s military actions speak louder.

    I have lived in Israel for over 35 years and closely follow both Israeli and US politics. I don’t like Bibi, but I vote for him every time and will continue to do so. You don’t need to like the Prime Minister or President. You need to vote for the one that will be the best leader for your country. I am always dumfounded that American Jews think that Israel is the primary issue for their vote.

    Everyone needs to get out the vote for Romney regardless where they live. If you are a Romney supporter in NY or CA, help to get out the vote in swing states for Romney. Do not sit idle while America declines and Romney’s victory on Nov. 6 is the only event which can stop this decline!!

    She is HOT – like many Russian Jewish women. Maybe they watched the video to look @the hot chick?
