The Minnesota politician makes a point
about many modern American Jews:
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann Bachmann has accused American Jews of having “sold out Israel” by voting for President Obama in 2008 and 2012.
“The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support,” Bachmann told Tony Perkins on the Family Research Center's radio channel, “and as recently as last week, 48 Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter...to the Democrat [sic] senators in the U.S. Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran.”
“This is clearly against Israel’s best interest,” Bachmann continued, “and what has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel.”
Maybe the worst part is that they're getting involved in politics at all, and not for the better of any part of the globe. Have they ever sought to help the black Africans who've been victimized by Muslim slavemongering? No, and in fact, some movements have aligned themselves Muslim movements, and attacked Pamela Geller for wanting to do what they're not. A case could be made for why some Jewish movements shouldn't be politically active.
