Yes. For the Democrats who are saying that it doesn't matter to them if Jews switch parties (because it won't make a difference), it can all come down to the swing state of Florida, and one or two counties within the state.

I cant think of a single one that believes that Israel should not exist, under any circumstances. Sure, many of them want to see the Palestinians treated better than they are treated. And they all want a 2 state solution. Hell, I want a 2 state solution. But none of them want to see Israel dissolved.

I read a recent study, which I tried to google just now, but couldnít find. It said that 3% of Jews are against Israelís existence. Most Jews want a peaceful 2 state solution, and a small minority of Jews want a 1 state solution, with Israel being the 1 state.
Bar-Mitzvah at an Orthodox Synagogue, lived in W. Philly and Overbrook Park. Descended from lines that include well known Rabbis in Poland/Russia. We had two "families" - the S. Philly Italians and the W. Philly and Overbook and such Jews.

I'd say 80% of the people I hung around with were Jewish...never really thought about it, but that's the truth of the matter. Married a Jewish girl.....

I didn't say Jews do not think Israel has a right to exist (although some do) . But when I was young many of my peers went over and lived in Communes....some others we know packed up and moved their families there (they moved back here later). We regularly donated to Israel (everyone did)....

My point is that younger Jewish people today are looking critically at the militarized Israll and what has gone on worldwide since those more innocent times. This is fact - not something I came up with.
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...-apart/586705/

The people who I was referring to who don't care about the "state" of Israel are some of the very religious - they are based around their own Rabbi (as a total authority figure) and they see Israel as one big sin due to the liberal nature of the average person there (secular, etc.).

The "cults", if we can call them that, are nations into themselves...that's what I was referring to when I mention some Fundamentalist sects both here and abroad.
https://www.myjewishlearning.com/art...-anti-zionist/
"The anti-Zionist world-view of the ultra-Orthodox groups Neturei Karta and Satmar Hasidism perceives Zionism and the estab*lishment of the State of Israel as an anti-messianic act, conceived and born from sin. These groups vigorously deny the very legiti*macy of the collective political return to the Holy Land and to Jewish sovereignty"

There are a lot of such groups.

Each Jew thinks differently, which is really the point. But, as per this thread, when they do they come around to being do-gooders, peace-mongers, social justice advocates and such...which tends to lean them to the Left in a two party setup.

Back to Israel - I don't think they wanted it to work out this way. I was tremendously moved by the movie Munich - the toymaker who became a bomb maker - because it so well illustrates the situation. I wish I had a good solution, but that toymaker found only one...for him.

As I said in a previous post, a republican cant win a national election without Florida.

It hasnít happened in nearly 100 years with Calvin Coolidge

Minorities will vote for policies that will benefit their group.

Not for some esoteric theoretical difference between "free market"/less-government capitalism vs democratic socialism.

That's Boomer cuckservative and "civic nationalist" talking points, not REALITY

False. Steve King is an obscure person, I would argue that most people have no idea who he is.

Everyone knows the squad and everyone knows they have the full support of the Democrat party.

I think the reality is minorities are voting for the dispossession of the majority, soon to be made into minority, praise be to open borders.

Oh, trust me, everyone knows who Steve King is.

Just last week he championed rape and incest.

He continues to make news.

Do the liberal Jews posting here, do you not see the antisemitism from other liberals here? That Jews who practice their religion (I'm sort of midway, or I wouldn't be typing this today) are not regular Jews? And an earlier comment that Jews who support Republican policies do so only because they're paid?

P.S. I would have everyone here know that I am a REGULAR Jew. Especially when I eat my fiber.
I must be a REGULAR Jew, too, coz I had a big bowl of whole wheat Cheerios for breakfast this morning!

Note to all: Please don't define us as "Regular Jews" vs "Fundamental Jews." Despite differences in politics, we are all Jews. Those whom you may call "fundamental Jews" are actually as "regular" a Jew as any other Jew. The only significant difference (to us Jews) is that some Jews are more Torah-observant than others.

Clearly, both Rachel976 and I are not entirely Torah-observant Jews, as here we are, both posting online on the Sabbath. Yet we appear to have some differences in our politics. Our political differences don't matter to me, as Rachel976 is still my Sister Jew.

Again, Iím sure the CNN watching TDS crowd knows who this guy is. Myself, and most others have no clue.

Everyone knows the new faces of the Democrat party.
