Why do American Jews still support this President? In 2008, Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote. A recent Gallup poll reported that Jewish support had dropped to 54% in the late summer of 2011 while a September 2011 poll by the American Jewish Council had the number down to 45%. Some reality testing has begun to take place in the Jewish community, but frankly, unless Obama bows down toward Mecca on a prayer rug in the Oval Office after signing an executive order requiring Jews to wear yellow armbands in public, he will still receive a plurality of the Jewish vote in 2012.
Perhaps this stunning article by Andrew McCarthy in NRO might change a few more Jewish, and Christian, votes in November.
...the Obama administration has turned to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood's leading jurist, to mediate secret negotiations between the United States and the Taliban.
For those who may be unfamiliar with him, he is the most influential Sunni Islamist in the world... in 2003, he issued a fatwa calling for the killing of American troops in Iraq.
Qaradawi uses his al-Jazeera platform to preach this message to the Muslim masses..... in one memorable Friday "sermon" broadcast in 2009, he prayed that Allah would kill all Jews: "Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers and kill them, down to the very last one." He added that throughout history, Allah had imposed upon Jews "people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Adolph Hitler."
After thousands of young Americans have laid down their lives to protect the United States from jihadist terror, President Obama apparently seeks to end the [Afgan] war by asking Qaradawi, a jihad-stoking enemy of the United States, to help him strike a deal that will install our Taliban enemies as part of the sharia state we have been building in Afghanistan.
So B.H. Obama, our American President, turns to the most famous virulent Jew hater on the planet to help enslave the Afghan people. We all know what the Taliban plans for half the population of Afghanistan; burqas, honor killings, girls and women treated as chattel without access to schools, books, or a meaningful life.
This repugnant black stain on the decency of the United States and it's citizens will not, and should not, be soon washed away by the judgment of history. How can this be happening to our country? Where are the social and political institutions demanding to vote out this loathsome Administration and restore the integrity and principles of America?
