“Take a four-square-block slice of Gravesend, Brooklyn, a warren of high-priced residences dotted with Sephardic temples and yeshivas that happens to be the deepest single bloc of Republican support in all five boroughs. “

Interesting that the strongest Romney vote was from the Sephardic Community - the one with roots in Muslim lands.

Hmm, maybe because that community has had disasterous first hand experience with the treatment of non-Jews in Muslim lands. Maybe because many of their families were forced into exile from those lands when Israel became a nation in 1948.
