We all are well aware that the Jewish community voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. There was plenty of evidence of his anti-Semitism, but they refused to acknowledge it. It appears that they are now beginning to recognize that they do not have a friend in President Obama.
Read from Glenn Beck:
Glenn Beck: Obama losing Jewish support?
"GLENN: We heard a story yesterday and I needed to find out more information about it. I couldn't believe it. It was an interview with David Goldman. He is the senior editor of First Things magazine, which is a great magazine, and he was taking part in a convention at Ariel University in Israel last week and he heard some interesting things from Jewish leaders in reference to President Obama. One guy said that he thought he was — that Obama was a psychopath — or sociopath.
GLENN: Sociopath. And there is real anger and rage that is happening now in the Jewish community over Barack Obama. I wanted to get David Goldman's firsthand account here, and David is on with us now. Hello, David, how are you?
GOLDMAN: Hi, Glenn, thanks for inviting me.
GLENN: Tell us what you experienced.
GOLDMAN: Well, I talk to a lot of people in the Jewish community who have been major funders of the Democratic Party and in July 2008 as you know when Obama was running for president, many news stories came out showing that he had very close associations with people who were overtly anti Israel and Obama went out of his way to make assurances to the Jewish community that he would continue the kind of relationship that, say, Bill Clinton had had with Israel, which is reasonably friendly. Marty Peretz, the editor of the New Republic which reflects the Democratic liberal center said, I've been assured by Obama, he's okay, we can support him. And then when Obama tried to put Israel against the wall over apartments not in East Jerusalem but North Jerusalem which every peace agreement on draft had always assigned to Israel, the Jewish community realized that Obama had lied to them. So the term sociopath which in fact means a compulsive or indifferent liar is the term I've heard in a number of very big Jewish funders but this has become quite public, Glenn. In the Jerusalem Post yesterday, for example, the single largest funder of the Democratic Party is a media billionaire named Haim Saban. He's the guy who developed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He said the following of Obama, he said there are leftists, really left leftists, so far to the left there's not much space between them and the wall. So I think there's a crack up in the romance between the kind of centrist, liberal, pro Israel Democratic funder who liked Bill Clinton, liked Hillary Clinton and who thought they had a deal with Obama and Obama who turns out to be an extreme leftist on the Israeli issue.
GOLDMAN: But one important indication would be a man like Abraham Foxman who is the head of the Anti Defamation League, a very prominent Jewish leader. I know Abe Foxman. He is very bright but he is going to be buried with a lock of Eleanor Roosevelt's hair. He is the most liberal guy I know and there's no way to argue with him about it. He's a well intentioned man but I disagree with him because I'm a conservative and he's a liberal. But he's been attacking Obama in a tone that I've never heard from a Jewish leader before. Israel is under existential threat. If the Iranians get a new weapon, that puts Israel at risk. The Jewish communities in Europe are possibly not viable given the escalating level of Annie semitism. America's a great country and I don't believe that there will ever be serious anti Semitism in the United States of America. I love this country and I think that Jews are safer here in a sense than anywhere else in the world. But certainly Israel and many other Jewish communities are at great risk and a sense of deep concern, given the Obama administration's stance, certainly is spreading through I think almost every part of the Jewish community."
What's disturbing is that Obama has several Jews in his administration, including Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, and Cass Sunstein. Apparently, they must be the self-loathing Jews, or they wouldn't continue to stand with him while he comes at Israel like a bull in a china closet.
Robin of Berkeley at the American Thinker does a superb job of describes the two categories of Democratic Jews: liberal Jews and leftist Jews. Please take the time to read it.
