    Yes, Jews have traditionally been Democrats and liberal; for a variety of reasons; economic, cultural, and historical. But the idea of a Liberal Jew doesn't mesh with an absence of Jewish support for Israel. I live in a heavily Democratic area, and I guarantee, there is strong support for Israel, even from the most dovish and progressive of the community. The idea of living in peace is still considered the goal. But we're nobody's fools. We understand full well the type of state's are in Israel's neigborhood, and know hat the vision of peace has fallen flat even from those states holding onto peace treaties. There is a reason that we stand up for Israel's right to defend itself and remain secure in a region where every other state is a repressive dictatorship and violence, not law, is the standard means of rule. So don't mix the idea of Jews believing in protection of minorities, economic rights of the poor and down-trodden, with tossing Israel to the wolves
