The Israel Lobby is the American People

11

I snagged the headline from a piece William Kristol wrote for the Weekly Standard here. And while I may disagree with Kristol more often than not, he is dead on in this.

Quick note: Tech giants are snuffing us out. You know this. Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Adsense permenently banned us. Facebook, Twitter, Google search et al have shadowbanned, suspended and deleted us from your news feeds. They are disappearing us. But we are here. Help us fight.

  Now we know who constitutes the real Israel lobby: the American public. Especially the 
Republican-leaning part of it.

Consider the results of a new poll, a survey of 1000 likely voters done October 3 to 5 by McLaughlin and Associates for the Emergency Committee for Israel. (The complete survey results, including cross-tabs, are available at committeeforisrael.com.)

Before getting to Israel, we might note that the survey found the GOP ahead in the generic Us:israel congressional ballot by about four points. That’s a somewhat smaller margin than that found by several other likely voter surveys during this period. We might also note that 33 percent of those polled identified themselves as Republican, and 40 percent as Democratic, which suggests a sample a bit more Democratic than the norm. So this was not a GOP-tilting survey.  

What the survey shows is this: The American people strongly support the state of Israel, and want their elected representatives to do so as well. An astounding 93 percent of those polled say the United States should be concerned about the security of the state of Israel. A majority—54 percent—say the U.S. should be “very concerned” about Israel’s security. Virtually the same number care that their elected representatives be pro-Israel. When asked, “Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for a candidate whom you perceive as pro-Israel?,” 53 percent say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate they saw as pro-Israel, 24 percent less likely. Even more striking, the same number—53 percent—say they could not vote for a candidate if he were anti-Israel, even if that candidate agreed with them on most other issues.

So it’s not only that the American public is pro-Israel by more than two to one. It’s also that being anti-Israel is an actual disqualifier for a majority of American voters.

This is a pro-Israel nation.

In any war betwen the civilized man and the savage, you side with the civilized man. Scroll for the candidates position on Israel. Remember that when you vote. Remember in November!

Tom Gross reports:  62 years on, the continuing struggle to recognize Israel as a Jewish state

* It took only six attempts yesterday to get U.S. State Department spokesman, P.J. Crowley, to answer whether the U.S. recognizes Israel as a Jewish state.

* "Nearly 63 years after the UN recognized the right of the Jewish people to independence in their homeland, the Palestinians are still denying the Jewish nature of the state. 'Israel can name itself whatever it wants,' said the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, while his chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, said that the Palestinian Authority will never recognize Israel as the Jewish state. Back in 1948, opposition to the legitimacy of a Jewish state ignited a war. Today it threatens peace."

* Lee Smith: "The idea that mandating an oath of allegiance for new citizens is a sign of Israeli fascism is part of the delegitimization campaign against Israel. It fits so well with media blather about the decline of Israeli democracy – and the nightmarish scariness of Israel's foreign minister – that critics have conveniently ignored the fact that such oaths are normal fare in every major Western democracy."

* The U.S. oath of allegiance for new citizens, for example, requires new Americans to "absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty"; promise to "support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic"; promise to "bear arms" and "perform noncombatant" service at the direction of the U.S. government; and swear that one takes the oath "freely and without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion" in the name of God Almighty himself, all of which makes swearing an oath of allegiance to the democratic Jewish State of Israel seem like pretty weak stuff.

Here is a poster by the artistic Elder of Ziyon. Is he being fair to Mr. Abbas?

This is an updated list of the 136 Congressmen I put together who voted against Israel between 1-5 times during the 111th Congress. It's very important that these ant-Semites get exposed to as many friends of Israel as possible.

* In Bulgaria, persons of very distant Bulgarian origin can become citizens immediately upon arrival in the country without any waiting period and without giving up their current citizenship. The same is true in Croatia. China has a similar policy. And that only takes us through the Cs.
