    American Jews make up about two percent of the population. Not all of them vote and furthermore, they are divided between the two main parties. Perhaps 1% of the votersmay be Jews. Some of these will vote the party ticket anyway. If, instead, Obama took on the Jews, exposed their undue influence upon the congress, and moved to stop American aid to Israel, he would pick up a ton of voters which would far exceed his losses in the Jewish community. Americans of any stripe don't like to see their president humbled and disrespected by an illegitimate little nation which has always been dependent on American generousity. Ultimately, America's most critical war will be with the Jews. This will not be a war of maiming and killing, but rather a war of identity. Israel is a foreign nations with it's own priorities. American Jews must decide if they will support their own nation or the foreign nation witn no ambiguity.
