During tonight’s Republican debate Rick Santorum will be making his case for the party’s ticket.  In parts of the New York area orthodox Jewish community, Santorum’s case has already been made and it’s succeeded.

“He’s always been tough on the issues of importance,” a spokesman for Jewspickrick.com said.

The site has been organized by members of the orthodoxy in New York and New Jersey, based on social issues and foreign policy.

He won’t have to come in and need advisors on foreign policy and Israel, like some others. He will be ready on Day 1. He won four times in Pennsylvania, a Democratic state, and on gay marriage and abortion we know where he stands,” the spokesman said.

Members representing the group point to “family values” among other things, on it’s website, as part of the reason for their support of the former Senator.

“As a married father of seven, Santorum is uniquely qualified to understand family values in a manner aligned with the Orthodox Jewish community,” reads a statement from their website.

“Santorum has publicly come out and said he’s going to seek the Orthodox vote.  We’re here to say he has it,” the group’s spokesman told The Algemeiner.

    Jews are diverse. Not all Jews speak with one voice. However Santorum has been firm on clarity vis-a-vis genocidal Islamic-totlaitaruian-fascist regime of Iran.

    Highlights:

    * 1991 – [3 years before his AMIA massacre] Iranian rep. cleric Mohsen Rabbani in Argentina said in front of Islamists and neo-Nazis crowd: ‘Israel must disappear from the face of the earth.’

    * 2001 Dec., Rafsanjani called on Muslim nations to use nukes agaisnt Israel, and that ‘One bomb is enough to destroy everything.’

    * 2005 – Ahmadinejad: “Israel must be wiped off…” ‘Holocaust… a pretext.’

    * 2007 – Ahmadniejad: ‘US and Israel will soon disappear.’

    * 2011 – Ahmadinejad: ‘Annihilate Israel.’

    * 2012 – Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: a “cancerous tumour that must be excised and will be excised” from the Middle East.

    * 2012 – Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: ‘Kill all Jews and annihilate Israel!’ [hailing a plan for genocide in ‘9 minutes.’]

    Not to mention Iran directly or via its Hezbollah thus’ crimes against humanity in: Argentina (1992, 1994), Panama (1994), France (1985-6), Lebanon (1982-2012), Israel, S. Arabia (Khobar) (pushing bloodshed in:) Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria…

      Yeah, Israel should attack Iran and that’ll solve ALLLllll her problems just like when Israel invaded Lebanon and America invaded Iraq.

      War is obviously the way to go, it’s worked the last 50 years and it will work for another 50 more!

    Hysterical, do theses Jews understand that Santorum worships a god that will throw each and everyone of them into Hell to roast for rejecting the love of Jesus Christ?

    I know, I know, Rick hates sex fags and women just like the Beards do and that’s all that really matters.

      salvage, My son-in-law was raised in a Jewish home and was Bar Mitvahed. He came to believe that my Saviour was really His Saviour first. God does not send people to Hell, people do by the sins they commit. Jesus came as the atonement. Everyone dies and at that time will give an account of his life, and the verdict will be guilty as charged without the One and Only Perfect Defender and Substitution. It took only one act of disobedience to be removed from the presence of a Holy God in the garden of Eden. Accept His mercy which is for the Jew first and then the Gentile. That is why I am pro Israel and always will be. God has not forgotten his covenant with His people, Israel, and I will stand with His chosen for the sake of His Son.

  • Rabbi Benyamin Blatt

    Those or the Orthodox community, who have chosen to support Mr.Santorum for the Republican nomination, DO NOT SPEAK FOR ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES. THEY DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME.

    • whom do you support, Rabbi? can you explain why not Santorum?

  • not everyone backs Rick Santorum, here’s why we support Mitt http://www.jacobkornbluh.com/2011/12/obama-oy-vey-newt-is-gerecht-and-mitt.html
