Dems Repubs and Israel

 The TREND is VERY worrisome. DNC removed the word Jerusalem removed from the DNC platform as well as Hamas as terror, and Palestinians no right of return . The leadership knew it would hurt fundraising so they tried to put it back, and rammed it through despite an overwhelming majority loud chorus of boos from the delegates. DNC convention featured a large Muslim extremist sub convention. Many of the liberal churches have joined the Boycott, Divest, Sanction cause.

53% of Dems say they support Israel. 80+% Republicans. No matter how many glowing New York Times op-eds Haim Saban writes, no matter how many pro-Israel speeches Robert Wexler gives, no matter how many times they channel Pravda by hitting the same talking points about Barack Obama’s love for Israel, Democrats cannot ignore the elephant—er, over-sized donkey in the convention hall. Like it or not, the Democratic Party is becoming the home address of anti-Israel forces as well as Israel skeptics. And Democratic support is flagging, with a 20+-point gap between Republican support for Israel and Democratic support. I believe strongly that support for Israel should be a bipartisan bedrock—and with more than 70 percent of Americans supporting Israel that foundation remains strong but sadly it is becoming a partisan  issue
