Moreover, arguably at least half the Jews in Israel are liberal going from the parties they support (its a parliament, conservatives when they win simply win a plurality there not a clear majority). Most likely 75% or more of the world's Jews are liberal. So its a pretty absurd notion that leftists are "rabid anti-semites" when the majority of Jews are leftists. Just because someone has a different of opinion with the current ruling party in Israel does not mean they are anti-semites. If it did, then half the Jewish population of Israel would be anti-semites.

    Finally, Antisemitism has historically had a much stronger history with the far right than with the left.
    Nice try, however it is not just about disagreements with present Israeli policy. Liberals in general have been siding with repugnant radical Islamic terrorist groups, over Israel in any conflict for decades.

    Easy. Any diplomacy that doesn't involve bombing raids on nations that never attacked us is automatically weak-kneed appeasement.

    Israel was a good friend and important strategic partner during the Cold War. In turn, we provided vital assistance to them during their struggle for existence. But it's absurd for us to continue to support them when they insist on a bull-headed and ultimately doomed policy of continuing to build on the West Bank. Few civilized nations in the world support Israel, and its because of the stupidity and blindness of their policies. Blaming this lack of support on anti-Jewish sentiment is merely a convenient canard.

    A lot of conservatives, by the way, only support Israel because of some crazy Biblical theories about the Second Coming and all that. Blithering nonsense.

    Not all conservatives are out of their minds with regards to Israel, though. Here's a good article from The American Conservative: The Disgraceful Spectacle in Congress | The American Conservative
    God Bless the great state of Israel. I have always supported them whether they have been under liberal or conservative leadership.....and without regard to any biblical theories, sport.

    Do tell us specifically which ones who are still alive jumped to the republican party? The segregation era ended in the 1970s. Ofcourse most of them are dead. What you don't want to hear is that the majority of them either remained in the democrat party or jumped to the dixiecrat party. And the worst of them Senator Robert Byrd, a former grand Cyclops and kleagle of the klan remained a democrat until they put him in the ground. And nearly to the end, he remained in the Senate even when he had to be diapered and pushed in a wheelchair into the capitol dome to vote.

    The fact is the majority of Jews are liberals. Jews vote Democrat more consistently than any other demographic other than African Americans. By your reasoning they do so because they are too stupid to know better rather than because of their personal ideals.
    Tell me....do the democrats treat the jews who do not vote democrat the same as they treat the African Americans who vote conservative?

    Wait and see.
    Much the same was suggested about both Reagan and Bush (W). I will put it bluntly sport. Despite your corny overconfidence, you do not have any inside track on who has the best chances in either party to get into the white house in 2016. I am still laughing about the liberal overconfidence concerning the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections.

    [QUOTE=Atiya;1064382138] My sentiments exactly! But, let him dream a little longer! Walker's temporary walk in the sun is reminiscent of the last presidential election starring Republicans Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. For a brief moment, the far right-wing of the Republican base had each of them dreaming they might reach the White House. It was sheer entertainment! I've already orders mounds of popcorn for this next bunch of star-struck wannabes![/QUOTE


    You don't even have a coherent political compass. There is no far right-wing of the republican party. There are the mainstream conservatives and the RINOs. Far right wing in the republican party ended over 6 decades ago. The modern liberal merely labels anyone with any conservative stance at all as a far right winger.

    [QUOTE=B'smith;1064382399]Netanyahu's Circus seemed to backfire in spite of his trotting out Eli Weasel instead of his dog eared "Acme Bomb" Cartoon.
    Nancy Pelosi cited Netanyahu as "Insulting" Americans as he offered no alternatives to negotiations except bombing.

    The only tangible result was more American opposition to Netanyahu & a 5% jump in the polls for Obama at this point.



    “Americans Rally Around The President As Obama Approval Jumps 5 Points Thanks To Netanyahu”
    Americans Rally Around The President As Obama Approval Jumps 5 Points Thanks To Netanyahu
    EXCERPT “Since Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in the U.S., President Obama’s approval rating has increased by 5 points in the Gallup poll.”CONTINUED

    Nancy Pelosi is a geriatric bimbo. And only wishful thinking liberals take a gallup poll seriously barely past a day after Bibi's speech to congress.

    Conservatives are not the ones using terms like "uncle tom", "aunt jemima", "traitor", "strawberry" etc to label African Americans who do not toe the democrat party line.
