2 Million Views: Jewish Democrats for Romney Video (VIDEO)

Screenshot from the video.

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.

  • Democrats for Romney who live in the LA Area:

    Please vote for friend of Israel Bill Bloomfield, who is running against Obama stalwart Henry Waxman in the Santa Monica Bay’s 33rd Congressional District.

    Visit waxmanwatch.blogspot.com for more information!

    End the 38-year tenure of Henry Waxman.

    Bill Bloomfield for the 33rd!

  • 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?

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the moral of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry has [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]

    Recycling His Roots

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives? Many of us continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65, not because we need the money and not because we find the [...]

    Why the Holocaust Occurred in Germany, and Why So Few Resisted (REVIEW)

    It’s hard to make a new contribution to the field of Holocaust studies,  but German historian Götz Aly accomplishes just that in Why the Germans, Why the Jews? His premise is that the origins of the Holocaust were rooted in the specific anti-Semitism found in Germany in the decades and centuries before World War II. Aly (who is not Jewish) seeks to prove his theory by studying only pre-Holocaust history, and tracing how the German people’s envy and hatred of [...]

    Looking at Anti-Israel Celebrities and Their Brands

    JNS.org – During the current conflict in Gaza a number of celebrities have voiced their opinions in support of either the Israeli or Palestinian positions. But others—be it during Operation Protective Edge or at other times—have gone further than simply supporting the Palestinians by actively supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, making false accusations about the Jewish state, ignoring Israel’s position on the conflict, or justifying the actions of the terrorist group Hamas. Many of these [...]

    JNS.org – Days after winning his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight bout against Steven Siler on July 26, Israeli-born mixed martial arts competitor Noad Lahat boarded a plane for his native country, choosing to temporarily exit UFC’s octagonal cage to rejoin the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a paratrooper for its operation against Hamas in Gaza. Except he didn’t actually consider it a choice. “When [our] home is in danger, there is no other way for us [but to serve [...]
