I am an American Jew who has made his home in Israel for the last 35 years, and I say there has never been a a more loyal and devoted friend to Israel than President Obama. He has supported us against the rabid Ayatollahs of Iran, even while absorbing the endless and unjustified insult and injury from the most intolerable and intolerant right wing nationalsitic xenophobic , anti-democratic government Israel has ever had. Theloud, ignorant and biased minority of shamless Jewish supporters in America who voice their racist hatred for Obama today walk in the same dark shadows of those who hated Martin Luther King. They have forgotten the liberal Jewish heritage in America and have alligned themselves with the most reactionary forces in America today, who reluctantly accept their support with a silent loathing and revulsion.. They adore the likes of Nethayahu and Lieberman and Eli Ishay and hate anythng or anyone who believes in social justice, democracy, peace and co-existence in Israel. Thank God the majority of Jews in America have not succombed to Bibi Nethanyahu's nuances and whispers and still believe in Obama and all the very best in a liberal democratic tolerant society. Most of us have always been with you, Mr. Obama! If only we had a leader in Israel like you today!

IfNotNow and its co-founder Simone Zimmerman challenge U.S. Jews to end the occupation. But they won't answer this basic question: Do you support a Jewish and democratic state in Israel, alongside a Palestinian state? And if not, why not?16:02 05.05.16 | 1 comments
