    To Kim Zimmerman: Firstly, the vote is not "Jewish" or "Hispanic" or "African-American" -- it is American. The Jews, Hispanics, African-Americans who live in the USA are voting for what is best for their group in the USA, not in any other country. Do Italian-Americans look at USA policy towards Italy when they vote? Do African-Americans decide their vote on the basis of how the USA deals with countries in Africa? No. Anyone living in the USA should vote solely on whether the candidate will be good for the USA. Israel first or your country first? Secondly, anyone who thinks that Obama is anti-Israel is paranoid. How many times has WashingtonDC sworn that the ties with Israel and the USA are "sacrosanct," "unbreakable," "everlasting," etc. These are vows of worship and total adoration. What more do you want? Thirdly, the USA has finally admitted, after Petraeus' assessment, that support of Israel's illegal construction will only harm Israel in the long run.
