American Jews are a strange bunch July 26, 2015

Posted by hslu in Global Affair, Middle East, Politics.

According to a recent survey conducted by LA Jewish Journal, American Jews support the Iran nuclear deal by a wide margin: 53% approval vs 35% against. This is in stark contrast with what Israeli Jews are thinking: 78% of Israeli Jewish people think the Iran deal will endanger Israel and help Iran reaches military nuclear capability based on a poll conducted 5 days ago by The Jerusalem Post and Maariv Hashavua.

What’s even more perplexing is that even American Jews, while supporting the Iran deal by a wide margin, believe the Iran deal poses a threat to Israel’s survival.

May be I am naive to think most American Jews care about what Israel is going through these days.

I guess a logic conclusion can be made here:

American Jews are mostly Democrats and Democrats are in general more supportive of diplomacy over war. Besides, American Jews live their comfortable lives in the United States, they don’t live under constant threat of missiles and mortar shells.
