    The majority of Americans I know in Israel are not religious. They are by right Democrats; for a national health system, for women's reproductive rights, for civil liberties re. Gay rights, ... basically the Democratic ticket BUT ...this Presidency has shown that they subcribe to the idea the Israel is a "problem" to be solved. They have shown themselves inept at foreign affairs and it is a matter of self preservation in their, and my, eyes that Romney will be better for Israel or at least do LESS DAMAGE to Israeli and hence Jewish interests. All the welfare in the world and free healthcare and green jobs and a fairer status for Gays and women won't mean jack with a nuclear Iran. They won't mean anything with an Islamic Jihadist alliance from Egypt, Jordan (soon), Syria (also soon). If Iran gets the bomb, we are looking at gas prices at $8 and $16 a gallon. Then let's see Obama spend his way out of that one. Oh, and shame on the GOP for fielding such a week candidate that they are likely to lose what should have been a win. More likely than not we are simply have to inhale for 4 years and hope for the best as Obama will issue in a terrible time for Israel over the next four years.
