    "75% of American Jews voted for Obama...And he is still popular among them." This is a common misconception. 75% of American Jews (actually closer to 80%) voted for the DEMOCRATIC candidate. While that happened to be Obama, these same people would have voted for McCain (or, for that matter, Adolf Hitler) if he/they ran on the Democratic ticket. American jews, by and large, vote Democratic, with no consideration whatsoever as to who the candidate is. "These right wing extremist Likudniks are as representative of Jews as Al Qaeda is of Muslims." These "right wing extremist Likudniks" happen to represent the majority of Israelis and American Jews. That is why these "extremist Likudniks" voted Likud into power. "It`s about time the US realized that the interests of our two countries are diverging. We really don`t have much in common." Think again. The U.S. has more in common with Israel than with any other Country in the M.E. Israel is the only true democracy in the M.E.
