An influential paper with the Orthodox Jewish Community in New York, the Jewish Star, strongly endorsed Mitt Romney for president today. The editorial was titled, "The New Jewicide," and clearly delineated why Barack Obama is dangerous for the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
As the writer stated:
Obamas bad positions on Israel and terrorism during his first term will only worsen in a second when he would no longer need financial support from major Jewish donors and electoral support from Jewish voters. Just like he told Russian President Mevedev Obama will have more flexibility in a second term
The reason there is no progress toward Israel/Palestinian peace can be explained in three words, President Barack Obama. While the Palestinians have never accepted Israeli settlements, secession of all settlement building has never been a precondition to talks. Israel had long ago agreed not to build new "settlements" in Judea and Samaria but would continue to add housing units to existing communities. They have never agreed to restrictions on building Jerusalem
It was the Obama administration's naiveté that made the settlements an issue. Hillary Clinton first demanded the freeze in 2009 and was quickly backed up by Obama. What the President and his advisers perceived as a minor concession, a settlement freeze including no new housing units in existing communities, was for Israel a grave sacrifice. From the Israeli point of view he was telling parents their children that they could not buy a home in their community
Obama has said Israel is the Jewish State and has called on the Palestinians to recognize Israel but has never called on the Palestinians to recognize Israel as the Jewish statenever (the UN partition which created Israel called it a Jewish State)
