US Jews support military action against Iran

The American Jewish Committee's annual survey shows that most Jews support military action on Iran, whether that action is taken by the United States (58-36%) or by Israel (66-28%). The survey also shows that only 8% of American Jews believe that Israel should return to the 1949 armistice lines and 51% don't believe there will ever come a time when Jews and Arabs will settle their differences and live in peace. But by 58-37%, they don't want Israel to give up any sovereignty in Jerusalem.

US Jews also approve of Binyamin Netanyahu (59-23%) by a wider margin than they approve of Barack Obama (54-32%).

The results are actually better than I would have thought they would be.

Read the whole thing.

I thought Americans Jews slavishly followed Obama? Hasn't J-Street done enough work to convince them to abandon Israel and go soft on Iran?

Despite these figures, 78% of these putzes voted for a guy who doesn't support military action against Iran - by Israel or us, DOES support a return to the 1949 Armistice lines and does think that Arabs & Jews will live in peace (next week, because he says so)...this is the same guy who believes that a rainbow-farting unicorn will magically fix the economy.

The cognitive dissonance necessary to vote for this anti-Israel schmuck and yet hold the positions stated in this poll is simply astounding. What drug are they on (and, no, poppy-seed filling in Hamantoshin or on bagels doesn't count)?
