Yesterday's post on Netanyahu addressing Congress received the following comment;
Please explain to me why American Jews continue to support Obama. Are they blind, or do they just not care about Israel?

The Jewish support for Obama has exasperated me for years, but I am a minority member of the clan. Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote in his first election, and despite several snubs of Israel, still received 69% of their support in 2012. The Jewish alliance with the Democratic Party goes back to the Roosevelt era. Some sociologists believe that contemporary Judaism has metamorphosed more into social liberalism than traditional religion. Obama was a liberal's dream candidate.
