Atlanta is a Hard Place for Orthodox Jews to Leave

Jews and Christians here are to the right of the Likud's Benjamin Netanyahu.
Atlanta, GA

Atlanta, GA

Atlanta, GA, is a hard place for Orthodox Jews to leave: That was the message I got from my Shabbat hosts in Atlanta.  That is even though they are dreaming of making Aliyah to Israel and even own homes/apartments there.  Everything they need for a full, fulfilling, rewarding Torah Jewish life can be conveniently found in their Atlanta neighborhood.

From their stories, even the local Christians are friendly an supportive.  This pocket of America is very anti-Obama.  They told me that Obama is costing them money in added taxes. That is as employees and business owners.  I met a number of their friends and that was the message.Jews and Christians from what I understand are to the right of the Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu.  They insist that your ordinary American does not see why Israel should cede any land to the Arabs.  It makes no sense to them at all.This jives 100% with the Christians I’ve met over the thirty plus years I’ve lived in Shiloh and hosted and led groups of religious Christians who have toured Shiloh’s holy spots.

If the State of Israel, Prime Minister on down would just announce, inflexibly that we declare sovereignty over all of Judea, Samaria, Jordan Valley, Golan etc, no negotiations, they would back us.  Your ordinary person in the States, according to them, accepts the 1967 Six Day War victory as the legal defeat of the Arab armies, Jordan, Egypt and Syria, which had tried to destroy the State of Israel.  We never fought a country called “Palestine,” since there never was one in the entire history of the world.  The so-called “Palestinian People” is a fiction invented/created to undermine and destroy the Jewish State of Israel.

    "This pocket of America is very anti-Obama. "

    Not true at all. Fulton County, which includes most of the City of Atlanta, voted 64% for Obama; DeKalb County, which contains the rest of the City of Atlanta, plus suburbs, voted 78% for Obama, and suburban Clayton County (home to the fictional Tara plantation in "Gone With the Wind" voted 85% for Obama. Obama lost Georgia because Romney won big in the white rural areas in the northern and southeastern parts of the state.

    "they would back us".

    That is indeed possible. Congressman John Lewis (D-GA-05), the great Civil Rights Leader, has been one of Israel's biggest supporters for decades. I think his district includes much of the Orthodox area in Atlanta. Here is an opinion piece he wrote over a decade ago:

    http://www.sfgate.com/opinion/openforum/article/I-have-a-dream-for-peace-in-the-Middle-East-2880295.php

    Lewis was just re-elected with over 84% of the vote.

  2. Atlanta is 63% black,they all voted for Obama,many just because he is black,mixed actually……

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    "Atlanta is 63% black"

    The 2010 census reported that Atlanta was now 54% black. While I could not find election returns for the City of Atlanta by itself, other demographics/returns are:

    Fulton County is 45% black and voted 64% for Obama.
    DeKalb County is 54% black and voted 78% for Obama.
    Clayton County is 52% black and voted 85% for Obama.

    Clearly Obama had a lot of support from voters who weren't black.

    "Jews and Christians here are to the right of the Likud's Benjamin Netanyahu."

    Barack Obama, and practically every Democrat in the US Congress, is to the right of Netanyahu!

  5. Eli Neuberger says:

    Even though Jimmy Carter throws his weight around down there

  6. Charlie Hall says:

    I don't think anyone pays any attention to Carter any more.

  7. Gideon Slifkin says:

    As someone who lives in Atlanta, that article was silly. There are plenty of Democrats here. Maybe not many among the chareidim, but that's like anywhere.
