People active in the NJDC claim that the new structure does not reflect any decline in activity.

NJDC officials proudly pointed to their “aggressive advocacy work in favor of the Iran nuclear deal,” as evidence of its continued vibrancy. An Iran nuclear deal that was strongly opposed on existential grounds all across the Israeli political and ideological structure.

Maybe that boast reveals all we need to know about the purpose and value of the NJDC than anything else.

  1. Well, if you are Jewish you are in a minority. I've been a lifelong Jewish Republican, and when I talkl to my family and friends about the election they all still keep their allegiance to the Democrats. It's like the Democrats can do no wrong, facts be dammed. They are so openminded – IMHO – that their brains must have fallen out. Besides which, they are generally more secular than Jewish. What a mess !

  2. It is disheartening with this administration in connection to Israel, but my heart is still with the Dems. More being the lesser of 2 evils than any great love for them. I was raised after WW2, and Roosevelt was a god in our home. My parents weren't political, but his name and deeds were handed down to a new generation, and we believed in it.

  3. Pamela, Gods word belongs in the Churches and Synagogues, not in the running of the govt. One can believe in whatever they want, but that is why there is seperation of church and state. It is constitutionally not allowed to be in the functioning of the govt.

  4. Roosevelt has long since been uncovered as the anti-Semite he was, and his Great Depression economic policies continued the depression longer than otherwise would have been the case. Only the full employment engendered by WWII fixed Roosevelt's faulty economic plan. It might have been understandable for your parents to have thought Roosevelt a "god," but you should long since have been able to make an independent – and different – judgement.

  5. Romanoff- you're a naiive fool – your parents were as well. Read your history – Roosevelt was an anti-semite that ensured the destruction of European Jewry (from 1942 the allies knew EXACTLY what was going on in occupied Europe)- and would NOT have supported a Jewish state – wouldn't even let a few hundred Jews on a boat from Germany land in the USA !! Even Truman put a ban on weapons going to Israel just when the British armed the Arabs to ensure the destruction of Israel. The Democrats have ALWAYS been anti-semites – so too now , and Jews in the USA are to BLIND to see this !

  6. I'm really happy to hear this and hope it's a reflection of Liberal Jews finally waking up.
    However, The RJC is an arm of the RINO Establishment. It's going to lose or has already lost members and interested supporters, like me for example. They should start supporting real honest, good, strong candidates and elected politicians, like Ted Cruz, for example, instead of weak, pathetic, phony, evil Republicans In Name Only.
    It's time to start a CJC, Conservative Jewish Coalition to back only true, good, strong, dignified, representative Republicans, like Ted Cruz, for example.
