Cindy Sheehan is a perfect example:
A Gallup poll released earlier this month shows that 59% of Americans support Israel while only 15% favor the Palestinians. At first glance these numbers are very encouraging. Support for Israel is at its highest point since the Gulf War, while support for the Palestinians has only been lower immediately after 11 September. Friends of the Jewish state should rejoice at news of this overwhelming support. However, one figure from this poll shows that support for Israel can be compromised with one election.
Last week’s results showed that 77% of Republicans support Israel. This number is not surprising since the Bush administration and the current Republican controlled congress have supported Israel like a mother's unconditional love for her child. The discouraging figure is that support among Democrats has dwindled to 50%. Friends of the Jewish state need to ask “why.”
The evil entity that has made Democrats weak on Israel has many labels. Radical left, Extreme left, Secular left are all fitting names when describing Democrats who now control the party and view Israel as an extension of what they really despise...America.
And yet Jews adhere to a near religious commitment to liberalism. I suppose it is seen by many as the best guarantor against antisemitism. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee, liberalism is no longer their friend.
