    ISRAEL IS SUFFERING FROM A DISEASE CALLED
    “UNATURAL FEAR OF OBAMA”….AMERICAN JEWS ARE NOT STUPID
    OR TRAITORS ..THEY WON’T VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO REMAKES
    HIMSELF EVERY 2 WEEKS..AND CHANGES HIS OPINIONS
    EVERY DAY. THE U S ELECTION IS NOT A ONE ISSUE DEAL.
    ISRAEL IS ON TOP OF EVERY JEWS LIST..BUT THE ISRAELIS
    HAVE GREAT HEALTH INSURANCE AND WELFARE BENEFITS AND
    AMERICANS DO NOT. ROMNEY’S BOTTOM LINE IS THAT HE WAS
    A CORPORATE RAIDER WHOSE FAVORITE WORD WAS “BANKRUPTCY”
    ……..CASE CLOSED FOR AMERICA’S JEWS

      Israelis are suffering from judgement based on action not rhetoric. Unfortunately we have citizens who would vote for Lenin if he ran as Democrat. Welcome to the Third World, U.S.A.

  • Jerry Hersch

    Ah !! But are they voting as Americans or as Israelis ??
    …Each community is facing different challenges.
    By the single focus on the Verbal rhetoric and not to the realities of Realpolitik of America as a world power with multiple commitments in a world of of over two hundred nations.
    America will support Israel no matter which administration -and no matter how high pitched the rhetoric.
    But the Jewish support for the only Party that for the past few years has made candidates across the board have to prove their ‘Christianness’ -and by not speaking out for a secular American will come back to haunt and bite American Jews.

    Correction: If Obama wins, there will be a revenge….Hope he will NOT retract the US veto vote in the UNSC
