“And, further to this post, a column on US Jewish support for Obama over Israel, and on the merits and demerits of the public expression of differences of opinion among allies.”

“WASHINGTON — Forty-five minutes at the White House was all it took to crystallize the new paradigm defining the relations among the Obama administration, the Jewish community and Israel. As Jewish leaders left their July 13 meeting with President Obama — ‘glowing,’ according to one of the participants — it became clear that despite some misgivings regarding the tone Obama has used toward Israel, the bulk of the organized Jewish community is in full support of his peace efforts, including his demand for a complete freeze of Jewish settlements on the Israeli-occupied West Bank. [...] It is worth noting, however, that explicitly pro-settlement groups were not invited to the meeting.” [emphasis added]

Worth noting, indeed. Can it really be surprising that Obama supporters actually support Obama? Is it surprising that only those Jews who consider Kool-Aid to be kosher (79% of the US Jewish community) would be invited to an Obama pep rally? Well, Mr. Guttman was gutt enough to include that bit of disclaimer, albeit buried in his pile of glowing horseshit.

Most Americans who drank the hopey-changey Kool-Aid continue to worship The Infallible Obamitude, and Jewish Americans are no different. The flogging will continue until morale improves, and all y'all shalt feel the tingling up the legs and the numbing of the brains.

Lord have mercy ...
