Wake up Jews!

My friends, get off the train, now.  The track is pointing in a very dangerous direction.  You will not prevail over the trend; on the contrary, you will become part of the trend.  As an elder clergyman, I’m horrified as I watch many Jews — young and old — slowly evolve into proponents of positions unwholesome, dangerous, and destined toward spiritual and physical suicide.

True, you will be forced to stop your demonizing of Republicans.  You may have to vote for Romney, a candidate singular in his passion and love for Israel as a living concept, an indivisible Jerusalem, and for Israelis and Jews as Jews.  You will have to wipe away the gruesome fantasies you have concocted about Republicans and conservative Americans.  That’s OK.  In fact, it is a nice thing to do and is good for the soul.

    Wake up? Since when is abandoning the widow and the orphan a Jewish value? If you're asking me to kick the bottom out from under the elderly with Vouchercare or take the food out of a baby's mouth by gutting welfare, I won't do it. You shouldn't do it either. I will never be a Republican! The U.S. is Israel's best ally and always has been. We continue to give more money and support to Israel than any other foreign nation. Obama has continually spoke in support of Israel, its values and its right to self-defense. Maybe if Bibi would stop fanning the flames of discontent between him and his best friend, Obama would sit with him. He's had a chip on his shoulder since the minute Obama took office. And it should be noted that he squeaked by in the election. He's not a popular P.M. Bibi gave 80% of Hebron to the Arabs. You condone that?

  2. This time as in last election, I am voting Republican for President…like I did 4 yrs ago..Before that I have always voted Democrat all my life until 2008..Now my 19 yr old son is also voting for Mitt Romney. For the many reasons written in this article among other. Unfortunately my other family relatives here are going to once again vote for the Democrat Party instead of looking at the candidates and what they believe. At least my Dad raised me right when he said "LOOK AT THE PERSON, NOT THE PARTY. So Romney will have 2 more votes from us here in Florida.

  3. For roughly 30 yrs I have voted Democrat due to being from parents who loved Harry Truman and traditionally voted democrat. However 4 yrs ago I voted Republican for the first time and plan on doing so this presidential election again. It's time we look at the individual candidate, not just the party as my Dad once said who as a small business owner usually voted Democrat but I think today he would consider voting the other side since things have changed. These past 4 yrs have not been so great so as my son said "Give the other guy a chance in".

    Don't be stupid. Obama is a Muslim and has another holocaust in store for Jews and other non-Muslims.

    Why would you ride your welfare state right into another gas chamber?

    The answer is not the Republicans, who, as per their official platform, still support the Oslo (Final) Solution. The answer is making Aliyah and putting true Jewish leadership in Israel which will not kowtow to ANY of the nations of the world.

  6. David Page says:

    All I can say is, read the book of Daniel.

  7. Robert, please provide evidence for the assertion that Obama is Muslim. Your other assertion is beneath contempt. You are either paranoid, completely delusional, or deeply psychotic.

The-Prophet-Jeremiah

No doubt, it’s hard for people to give up their lifelong attachments and identity. But there are moments in history when a turning point arrives, and those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize it. Many Jews have made political liberalism their religion and personal identity and the Democrat Party their unexamined home and comfort zone. But everything changed early September.
