    I think he'll get the younger jews. I don't know if he can get through to the older ones. They like McCain.

    How many American Jewish voters are there, anyway?

    5 or 6 million?

    The whole Jewish population of the US is only 6+ million. However:

    Yeah, but the numbers don't support the theory that their VOTES are the key issue, not even in those key states, methinks.

    What possibly DOES give the "Jewish vote" such authority is the money they (and their allies) apparently can throw the way of the pols who do their bidding.

    Bear in mind that much of the "aid" we give to Israel never really goes there as money

    The aid is in the form of military hardware built by American arms merchants, so providing Israel with that aid is really welfare for those arms merchants, isn't it?

    The American taxpayers pay for arms used by Israel, the profits go to American arms makers, and voila, you've got yourself one helluva lot of campaign contributors all seeking to gain power and influence over not only Republicans but Democraps too, and all for the benefit of Israel.

    Nice system they've got.

    The Israel tail wags the American dog.

    Trackable aid is noow at better than $3 billion a year......

    I think a whole lot is about blackmail.....


    Who knows more secrets than lawyers and doctors..... access to files and shared information goes a long way!

    Im with ya on the blackmail. It's the only conclusion I can ever come to that explains America's embarassing subservience. Call it conspiracy and wild speculation but I have seen enough of my money wasted on Israel.

    Massad is a highly effective secret service mafia, or so the story goes.

    Some Americans willing to work on Isreal's behalf even if they have to betray America, as we have seen on at least two occassions.

    Of course we will never been seen as honest brokers in the MidEast until we stop cowing down to Israel's interests.

    OTOH, should we do that then it is entirely possible that Israll would have no choice but to unleash their nukes to defend themselves, either.

    This is a internacine real estate war between two Semites tribes that we should never have involved ourselves in.

    Too late for that now, of course.

    If so then Jews would vote GOP since they traditionally support a strong Israel. But Jews overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

    Both parties are extremely loyal to Israel and have been since 1948.

    Do Jews really overwhelmingly vote Democratic?

    I wonder..
