There are many reasons more than 70 percent of American Jews vote Democratic. And the more people who read your editorial of April 4 “Democrats should not take the Jewish vote for granted, “ there is no doubt that number will increase.
I wonder how and why the Journal takes its political cues from the Evangelical Pence, a proponent of the end of times.
There is an alternative truth to the corruption of Donald Trump and the corruption of Benjamin Netanyahu. Polls – perhaps the same polls that reveal that more than 70 percent of American Jews vote Democratic – also show that a majority of American Jews favor a two-state solution for Palestinians and Israelis. Polls also show that a majority of American Jews favored the Iranian nuclear deal that Trump aborted. And the Trump Administration’s move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem and more recently the US Administration’s endorsement of Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights reduces the credibility of the United States as a peace negotiator between Israel and the Palestinians.
There are unintended consequences of your editorial: While asking for unity amongst American Jews by supporting a poorly planned agenda, you are doing more to divide American Jews than unify. And that may be the irony of ironies!
