Israeli foreign lobby pitting Democrat against Democrat
For the past several years, the staff here at CofCC.org has been predicting two major divisions that would rip Democrats apart. The first major division is between blacks and Hispanics and largely centered around jealousy over entitlements.
The second major rift, which has been rapidly growing is between Jewish and pro-Israel Democrats versus anti-Israel Democrats. As we have reported before, The Israeli lobby is the largest foreign lobby in the US. It disproportionately funds the Democrats. According to Forward Magazine, the largest Jewish publication in the world, Jewish people are greatly over-represented in Congress (15% of Senate & 7.6% of the House). All but two House member caucuses with the Democrats. While a few like Lieberman and Specter are classified as centrists, many like Senators Schumer, Sanders, Feinstein, Boxer, and Franken are at the extreme fringes of the left. The majority of Israeli newspapers endorsed McCain over Obama, yet the Jerusalem Post reports that 80% of American Jews voted Obama. Jewish Americans also provide funding to the Democrats in great disproportion to their percent of the US population.
Among the “rich white kid” wing of the Democrats, there is a rapidly growing segment that has decided to name Israel as the “new Apartheid.” Now that South Africa is in absolute ruins, the young lefties don’t like to talk about it any more. They just want a new enemy nation to rail against. Obama core supporters in Chicago, who helped launch his career, were the Arabs, Nation of Islam members, and other black extremists. All of whom are anti-Israel. During Obama’s presidential election his most visible supporters tended to be the college kid leftists, many who have also adopted anti-Israel rhetoric.
However, Obama is also an AIPAC member and ritualistically kissed up to the Israeli foreign lobby during the election. He then chose Emanuel as his chief of staff, a Jewish super-Zionist, who was a civilian volunteer for the Israel military during the Gulf War.
However, Obama’s new found love affair with Israel is coming to a crashing halt. Israel and the Obama administration are now officially at odds. The rift pits a large segment of the leaders and financiers of the Democratic party against the most vocal and dedicated street activists who support the Democratic party.

From New York Times…
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, under extraordinary pressure from the Obama administration to curb the construction of Jewish housing in Jerusalem, served notice on Monday that his government would not yield easily to American demands.
In a speech to a pro-Israel lobbying group, Mr. Netanyahu reiterated that Israel had no plans to freeze housing in Jerusalem, the trigger for a recent dispute between Israel and the United States. He rejected the administration’s contention that Israel’s policies were impeding the peace process.
“The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 years, and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today,” Mr. Netanyahu said to the group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. “Jerusalem is not a settlement; It’s our capital.”
Earlier Monday, Mr. Netanyahu met for 75 minutes with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, in the first of a series of meetings expected to reveal whether the United States sticks to its hard line with Israel on settlements. He later met with Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., and he was scheduled to meet President Obama on Tuesday.
The flurry of meetings is designed to calm the waters after nearly two weeks of tension between the United States and Israel, amid a diplomatic row that both countries have portrayed as the gravest in years. But judging by Mr. Netanyahu’s comments, it is far from clear that he plans to satisfy the demands that Mrs. Clinton made of him in a phone call 10 days ago.
Jeremiah Wright was Obama’s minister and mentor for twenty years. He helped Obama gain the trust of Chicago’s blacks to get elected to his first office. Wright visited Libyan Dictator Qaddafi twice while Obama was attending the church. Recently Wright told reporters that he had not spoken to Obama since the election because “Obama’s Jewish handlers” were keeping the two apart.
