Sultan Knish: The Democrats Can't Afford to Lose Israel

Smart, smart Jew. 

Read the whole thing.

"Jewish “liberal” support for Israel isn’t fading. The Jewish liberal is becoming less liberal and less Jewish. He is becoming a leftist with a Jewish last name and no amount of Israeli concessions to terrorists will convince Jewish leftists to put their Jewish identity ahead of their leftist politics."

"Israel can’t do anything to reverse that trend. Banning more Jews from living in Jerusalem, the latest demand of Obama and J Street, won’t save them from themselves."

"This isn’t an Israeli crisis. It’s a crisis of American Jews."


"Political extremism aligns with anti-Semitism. As American liberals become leftists, they are more likely to become anti-Semitic. A quick look at Europe shows us that this is true. There is nothing except reason and decency that prevents Jews from being anti-Semites and reason and decency are the first casualties of the political extremism of the left."
