    I am Jewish and my family arrived in America in about 1602 from Portugal and Spain, It's a large family with everyone ranging from far right to far left. Most of us get along; and those ofus who don't politics is not an issue and love and support of Israel is TRULY not an issue; we all love and support it equally. We supported Jews there for 300 years back when it was called "Palestinian Territories" ...I know many liberal and centrist Jews and a whole lot in the reform movement who are some of Israel's biggest supporters. So, you're telling half my family they must stop supporting Israel because they lean left? I'd sure love to see your scholarly references; as would anyone who is serious about the socio-political climate of the world. We hear that a lot; but never have we seen a real report other than "Some guy at the deli named "Bernie" told me; Bernie knows a lot; so am sure its true.
