Open Letter to Jewish Voters

I found this post at the Israeli Forum - we will be searching for more of these as the election looms nearby.

israelforum

To all Jewish Americans
I read not too long ago that only 30% of American Jews voted Republican in the last election and I was wondering if the statistics are still more or less the same.

I would just like to ask what party each of you are from and feel free to add any reasons why.

I was a Democrat for many years but changed parties around 2004 - right before the presidential election. I will admit that before that I really didn't care that much for politics and was a Democrat b/c my parents were. Once I started paying attention, I changed parties. Now I would say half the people I know are Republicans, definitely up from a few years ago. I just think the Democratic party has become infested with Jew-haters or anti-Zionists as they like to call themselves. For example, this was pretty evident with the last pro-Israel bill that was presented about the Israel-Hezbollah war where I think 8 Democrats voted against the bill and I think none or maybe 1 Republican did. There are many other examples of course but this is the one that always sticks in my head. That and the picture of Howard Dean with the scarf...

Anyway, just curious.

I'm a Republican even though I agree with some of the main Democratic platform issues like abortion and marriage.

The Democratic party has become a Leftist organization run by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean, Al Sharpton, and others whose vision for America is very troublesome to me.

Domestically:

I want lower taxes and laws that protect the upper middle class and regular families, instead of laws that are designed to perpetuate the underclass.

I want immigration laws to be enforced like any other laws.

I want to eliminate the legal constraints on investigating terrorism and crime. While I value our right to privacy, I also value our right to stay alive in the face of Islamic terrorism and Neo-Nazi groups.

Internationally:

I am very skeptical about the Democrats' plans for the Middle East, which will no doubt include slicing up Israel to appease the Arabs and their fellow Leftist Europeans.

We need to have an exit plan from Iraq that does not include a Democratic cut-and-run strategy. We need to leave the Arabs with the understanding that we are strong and will devastate any Islamic and terrorist regime that attacks our interests.


So, for these reasons -- on the balance -- I prefer the Republican platform. Republicans are better for America and better for Israel.

I'm an American Jew living in Israel. Everyone seems to be going with the Republican ticket. I haven't seen President Bush here once.

Isn't the Democratic and Jewish Lee Fisher good as a candidate for Lt. Governor in Ohio? Isn't he better for Israel than the Republican Thomas A. Raga? Any other recommendations on the Ohio Ballot?

I'm voting absentee hopefully. Unfortunately, my Ohio Ballot hasn't arrived although one came from Arizona today.

Generally speaking, the gop candidate is better for israel in the senate and house - the dems are pro muslim and arab rights - gov doesnt make much of a difference towards israel, but you will see the more dems get voted in now, the worse it will be.

I received my absentee ballot today. I have until 17 November to get it in but must mail from Israel. I see about 16 positions for elective office, the w/c senate bill #7 (yes?), and five issues. Any more suggestions? Is Lee Fisher for Lt. Gov the only Jew?

As a matter of fact, the unfortuneate truth is that some Jews and perhaps most do not have the security of the U.S. or Israel as their priority. They are more interested in ensuring that all women can have an abortion.
