Jewish voters need to wake up to Democrats’ anti-Israel barrage

Three heavy-hitting Jewish organizations attacked the left-wing, Soros-sponsored media giants, the Center for American Progress and Media Matters, as being anti-Israel. This openness on the part of such Jewish groups — the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee — is unprecedented. Their members number in the tens of thousands, and they read all their organizations’ reports.

What looks like another nail in the coffin for George Soros and the Democratic Party will probably be stiff-armed by Jewish Democrats as “lies.” The likes of U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch as well as the Jewish-run Palm Beach County Democratic Party must be chuckling at the almost-daily disclosures of their party’s hate-filled, anti-Israel (read Jewish) venom that bounce off their memberships’ noggins, leaving not a dent of basic political reality.

Jews — and I use that word frequently now as the election draws closer — are the key voting bloc that will either save or destroy Israel, depending on how they view Obama and his cohorts at the polls. Florida is the key state in the Union. As it goes, so will the election and the future of Israel. With a win on Nov. 6, Obama will have no further need to continue to play his obvious game with the Jewish electorate, mouthing the little precious words of “support” for Israel that he throws out when they start to get edgy. His comment to Nicolas Sarkozy and the words of Howard Guttman, Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton didn’t cause the Jewish voters to toss back Obama’s engagement ring. Not a blink! Where do they hide their Superman capes?

Rick Neuhoff, a Democrat who is running for Palm Beach County Commissioner Burt Aaronson’s seat, told a recent Hadassah gathering in Delray Beach that “Netanyahu is a warmonger.” Not a drop of coffee was spilled over his head. It was perfectly permissible for a group of Jews to hear a Jewish politician mimic the words of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s terrorist leader. Ex-Congressman Robert Wexler, the darling of Jewish retirees, is now the head of the Jewish-funded Palestinian support group known as the Center for Middle East Peace. Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Executive Committee chairwoman, is the South Florida titular head of J Street, the Soros-funded Jewish Democrat Palestinian advocacy organization.

Have I used up my quota for “Jews and Jewish” in this piece? Not really. If we don’t start getting to the Jews and make them enter the world of reality before Election Day, 2012, there might not be enough of this group left in the years to come to count on your fingers and toes. Is the situation that dire? You bet! That’s why so many of us Jews who can walk and chew gum at the same time are pulling a Paul Revere 24/7. If we are unsuccessful at our tasks, Nov. 6, 2012, will go down as D-Day for Israel. That stands for Destruction Day.
