Jews, Moslems, and Democrats

An excellent article in Commentary by Gabriel Schoenfeld.  She essentially describes the problems that the Democrat party has in store for Israel and the Jews:

The 2006 midterm elections confirmed once again a truism of American politics: American Jews remain overwhelmingly devoted to the Democratic party…

…recently a new element has entered as well, symbolized by the election this past November of Keith Ellison, the first-ever Muslim member of the House of Representatives… he proceeded to win endorsements from the American Jewish World, a “progressive” local paper…

The past decade or so has seen the formation of a group of 40 to 50 Democratic Congressmen who, in varying degrees of intensity, have felt free to express an uninhibited hostility toward the Jewish state…

At any rate, and thanks in part to the stubbornly lopsided Jewish allegiance to the Democratic party, the influence wielded by the Jewish community has not been increasing but receding, even while the numerical representation of Jews in public office has grown.
