According to a New York Times exit poll, 70 percent of American Jews voted for Hillary Clinton while only 24 percent voted for Donald Trump, a smaller number than for Mitt Romney in 2012 (30 percent). This is bewildering from a pro-Israel standpoint. Confused non-Jewish friends ask me why so many Jews always vote for a party against their people’s apparent own self-interest.

Where does Israel stand in modern Democrat party politics? The booing of the United Jerusalem platform during the 2012 Democrat convention, the Israel flag burning outside the 2016 Democrat convention, the sea of “Palestine” flags within their convention hall and the rank swelling of pro-BDS Muslim voters in the Bernie camp has to make one wonder why Jews would vote for a party that elevates these dangerous elements. Hillary’s aide Huma Abedin’s parents are the editors of a Muslim Brotherhood newspaper. Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood-financed Rep. Keith Ellison is the frontrunner to chair the DNC. Democrats such as Jerrold Nadler and Steven Israel marched in lock step behind Obama as he forced through the “Iran Deal” lie, against Israel’s grave security concerns.

    To "New American":
    1. I'm thoroughly impressed with your desire to remain anonymous with your post. It shows what real beitzim you don't have.
    2. I never claim to be an Israeli nor am I calling for mass Aliyah of American Jews to Israel. One day with Moshiah that will come. Ergo, you made an invalid point.
    3. I am vitally concerned a Jew in America since the Jewish nation is one and in modern times we have the rebirth of Israel as the Jewish homeland. The political winds have shifted for the pro-Israe community over the last 3 elections. Clearly this makes you upset but it wasn't my fault Obama rammed through the Iran Deal. Facts are uncomfortable.
    4. Obviously with your cheap shot about attacking Republicans on the economy- a subject not even in my article, it is clear that your too-thinned skin Democrat identity is so badly damaged by the election that you are somehow angry at me. My suggestion is you get some play doh and sing some Ramah camp songs.

    Matthew, while your views are very understandable, you are not an Israeli. You are an American. If you are so vitally concerned that Israel comes first at all times when it comes to America, even before all other internal American issues, you should really be an Israeli Citizen and live there. Unfortunately you probably have properly deduced that the great American wealth and economy, saved and preserved, by many Democratic presidents from the mishandling of the most Republican Presidents-lets you live a much better life than Israelis. Please save your opinions for Israeli Newspapers.
