My sampling says that Leftism is the religion of Liberal Jews in America — free abortion, pay equality, gay marriage, black lives matter, etc. These are the issues that are important to them. There is little to no interest in the tenets of Judaism or life in Israel. In fact, to demonstrate their ‘love’ of the Leftist religion, Liberal Jews are frequently in a position of being enemy to the Jewish homeland… Comments from Michael Oren, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States:
[I] could not help questioning whether American Jews really felt as secure as they claimed. Perhaps persistent fears of anti-Semitism impelled them to distance themselves from Israel and its often controversial policies. Maybe that was why so many of them supported Obama, with his preference for soft power, his universalist White House [Passover] seders, and aversion to tribes.
