    have been noticing their tent is getting a little smaller each day and this may be an opportunity to do as you say and pick up a demographic that has traditionally been Democratic

    •  Pick up "pro-occupation" American Jewry? (0+ / 0-)

      turn them into repubs?  Newsflash, they already are, there are few new pick-ups, other than the trend in the youth to fundamental style Christianity and Jewry, who vote republican anyway

      Jews do care about Israel but, moreso they care about progressive values.

      All the President needs to do is send Jewish representatives out to large reform and conservative congregations to explain his policy to them.

      Breakdown the false meme and the Jewish community will go even further for President Obama. We voted 78% as a group for him - if he goes direct he will go over 80% easily.

        that Dems support a secure an prosperous Israel, with security assurances, however, we can not support self destructive acquisition and retention of lands by conquest and at the expense of displaced minorities
