Is a Vote for Joe Biden in the Interest of American Jews?
American Thinker.com ^ | October 18, 2020 | Janet Levy

A recent study conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute found that 67% of American Jewish respondents planned to vote for Joe Biden and 30% for President Trump. Eighty-eight percent of those surveyed claimed to be pro-Israel and 64% said Israel is an important election issue. Most ranked Biden higher on U.S.-Israel relations, the handling of anti-Semitism, and ensuring the security of the Jewish community. The survey results are surprising, given Trump’s stellar record on Jews and Israel. American Jews must reconsider, for Biden’s record and positions on critical topics belie these perceptions.

Record on Israel

Biden’s record should dispel any notions he is staunchly pro-Israel. In 1982, testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations committee as a Democratic senator from Delaware, he argued with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. He threatened to cut aid to Israel if settlement expansion continued in Judea and Samaria, shouting and banging the table when Begin wouldn’t budge.

In 2010, Biden upbraided Israel for building apartments in a Jewish section of East Jerusalem and opposed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to extend sovereignty over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

In 2016, he pressured Ukraine, an abstainer, to vote for U.N. Security Council measure 2334, which identified the Jewish Quarter, the Temple Mount, and the Western Wall as located in “illegally occupied Palestinian territories,” an affirmation that defies historical fact. UNSC 2334 also condemned Israel building settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Approval of the resolution emboldened the Palestinian Authority to call for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Judea, Samaria, and the Jewish Quarter, reversing decades of U.S. vetoes against such moves. That year, the U.N. General assembly passed 20 resolutions against Israel. There were only six against other countries.

A vote for Biden is NOT in the interest of any American, Jewish or otherwise....

25%-that’s all we get. Nothing else matters with the Jooz. Same with queers. If we get 11% of the blacks we win I’ve been told. 15% and the rats are out of business. POTUS is dividing up the black vote along gender lines. The women hate him and the men chase white women.

No, but is in the interest of mainland Chinese living in the USA.

It’s not a good vote for anyone. Religious affiliation should have nothing to do with it!

Depends.
IF you are a religious Jew, no.
If you are an atheistic, ethnic ‘Jew’ then also no, but you don’t know better.

A vote for Biden is beneficial for China. And Biden Crime Family.

Blessings in the name of Adoni!

Anyone notice the various Muslim advocacy groups have been TOTALLY silent during this campaign and this year, for that matter?

Muzzies aren’t stupid. They know that endorsing Biden would be the kiss of death. Islam isn’t popular here.

And they won’t denounce Trump. Calling him a Zionist pig Islamophobe and threatening his supporters would make for a pro-PDJT avalanche.

Only if American Jews aren’t Americans and also only if American Jews are content to be lowered to slave status with the rest of us “useless eaters”.

Why should American Jews be concerned with Israel? No other ethnic group votes based on heritage. Americans should vote for what is best for America, which isn’t Democrat.

You mean Adonai?


You just throw that name, and "Hashem" around? When will you "Messianic Jew" Christians stop pretending you are Jews?


What the hell is the matter with you?


STEP AWAY FROM THE MENORAH before someone gets bitch-slapped.


Speak English, worship Jesus, quit trying to say things in Hebrew, and go to Church.
