Mike Huckabee: How Can a Democrat Support Obama as ‘Pro-Israel?’

Mike Huckabee doesn’t understand why Jews support Obama as “pro-Israel” because he doesn’t understand the psyche of a liberal American Jewish Democrat.

American Jews give tens and maybe hundreds of millions of dollars to orthodox yeshiva and nationalist institutions, including those trying to buy land from Palestinian Authority Arabs. But that is a  fraction of the hundreds of millions of dollars that flow into the coffers of Israeli universities, which  wear their leftist credentials on their chests, and to organizations promoting Jewish-Arab cultural events, interfaith happenings and anything else that dilutes Israel as a Jewish state.

It is hard to swallow, but that is the bulk of American Jewry, as well as American non-Jewry that calls itself Jewish because the Reform “rabbi” says they are Jewish.

Maybe a Republican will be next president. Maybe it will be Huckabee.

But victory will not come from the ‘Jewish vote.”

McCain did not get their votes, Neither did Romney.

And neither will Huckabee.

  1. This land has been given to Israel forever by God. It is completely absurd to witness the whole world trying to give it away. When a peace like that IS made it won’t last as it won’t be a true peace and try’s to steal God’s land. The US desire to collaborate with Israel to verify that Iran is living up to it’s nuclear agreements would be the equivalent of Israel going along with the west’s fantasy that Iran is much farther behind than it is in it’s nuclear pursuits. The US proposal to patrol the west bank is also not a solid Idea as no one but the US will respect it; making the US a combatant rather than a peace broker. I believe that these types of decisions are likely going to lead to the war spoken of in Isaiah 17 or possibly another conflict, and a one world government will be set up eventually due in part to the demand for peace and economic concerns after it’s finish. An agreement with Israel and the Arabs will be made and will start the 7 year tribulation period. Three 1/2 years into the tribulation period Russia and an Iranian lead Muslim confederacy will invade Israel and reach down to Egypt but will be defeated by the west. China in recent years has become more determined to set up a hegemony of sorts in Asia and the Pacific. Now they have expanded their “air defense identification zone” to enforce their claims on the Islands they “currently” say are theirs. Rev 9:16 and Rev 16:12 states that the nations of the east will invade and have an army of 200 million men. The forces of the west under the anti-Christ will then fight against the kings of the east in the valley of Armageddon. China looks now to be the leader of that eastern coalition. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  2. Can a Christian TRULY support Israel as something other than a missionary target?

  3. it is very sad that many jews are so blind they still support the policies of O bama to Israel and Iran. But if u recall the German jews supported the leaders and policies in Germany which eventually took them to the death camps.

  5. The Democrat is anti Israel party. Their Pro-Israel position was fake. Democrats has fake Pro-Israel propaganda. . Just like Obama.. http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/09/m-the_democrats_anti-israel_party_platform.html

  6. Cody Flecker says:

    American Jews are for the most part very much like German Jews prior to WW2. German Jews thought of themselves as Germans first. Top them it truly was Deutschland Uber Alles,. Intermarriage and Reform Judaism ruled the day for these German Jews. American Jews also stress intermarriage, and through their various Reform movements, have become almost like the most liberal Christians. In many cases and certainly within the next generation, they will become 100% Christianized. We all know the end to this story. Something will happen politically that is anti semitic and these same Jews all of a sudden will find themselves to be Jewish and once again all hell will break lose.

  7. I am an ambassador of VOLUNTEERS FOR ISRAEL> This past year,I spoke at Chabad on Ohio State Univ campus. The Oneg Shabatt was crowded. A friend ,also an ambassador,and I spoke for 15 minutes about volunteering to help as a civilian volunteer in Israel. (This work is at a IDF base). The rabbi implored the students,telling them it is a mitzvah. Not one student was interested. Sex and booze at Daytona on spring break was more important. The same thing happened when, we spoke at Hillel on the same campus.The following month a local Evangelical church asked about vounteering in Israel. Where are the Jews?? What happened to them?? Based on my experience, I am pessimistic about the future for a Jewish "heart Connection" with Israel.
