  •  One issue voters (4+ / 0-)

    Every Democratic president has supported Israel's existence and security from attack, as do a large majority of the American people. If Bushco's extreme anti-Palestinian policy has attracted Jewish voters, Rove has been aided and abetted by those on the left who attack not just Israeli policies but Israel's existence as well.

    Plenty of orthodox Jews vote Democratic because they are not one-issue voters and besides, they can see through blatant attempts to pander to their sympathies for Israel. I once lived in an apartment building where Jewish and non-Jewish families got different political flyers slipped under their doors, and believe me everybody noticed and felt disgusted.

    It's important to remember that Rove has found other ways to appeal to some elements of the Jewish community.  Notably, school vouchers and funding for faith-based social work can benefit religious institutions of all denominations. It can become a way of buying votes, and that's another reason to oppose these policies.
