An embarrassment to American Jewry

Jennifer Rubin is rightfully embarrassed that 58% of American Jewry still supports President Obama.
So American Jews did notice when Obama condemned Israel for building in its eternal capital. They did notice that he has been, from Cairo on, spouting the Palestinian victimology meme. They did notice that he has played footise with the Israel-bashers at the UN and joined (to sit as a mute observer, it seems) the noxious UN Human Rights Council. They did notice that Obama snubbed Bibi, inducing a make-up session. They did notice that he signed onto an NPT declaration singling out Israel (and then said it meant nothing). They did notice that he hasn’t been to Israel. They did notice that his advisers have leaked the prospect of an imposed peace deal and forgoing a UN veto should Israel resume building in its own country. They did notice that his efforts to thwart an existential threat to Israel have been lackluster at best.

And still, 58 percent like what they see. It is indeed a “sick addiction.” There’s no denying it: a majority of American Jews are willfully indifferent to the fate of the Jewish State. It is a sad affirmation that the liberal agenda – of which Obama has been a stalwart, albeit incompetent, standard-bearer — takes precedence over the survival of the Jewish state, and in turn, the Jewish people. (Do we imagine Jewry would survive if Israel does not?)

No, there's no denying it. They've become too comfortable and complacent in the galuth (exile). It's reminiscent of pre-World War II Europe. Hopefully, the result won't be the same.

It is enough to hurt one's heart, when it is the American Gentiles who care more for the holy land and G-d's own city of choice, than Jews.

I feel ashamed for them. Even with all the ugly truth available to these extremely well educated Jews, they still yearn to be accepted and embraced by the goy.

History repeats itself:
