1. No Jew should vote Democratic.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (09.14.11)
I'm not going to comment on the race even though I've been following it closely. The result speaks for itself. What I want to comment on is the reaction among ''liberal'' Democrats to the defeat of their candidate. This morning, I saw the ''tweets'' reprinted on a number of blogs. You'll please pardon the language. ''Israel can go to hell'' ''F*ck the Jews'' And on & on, literally hundreds of tweets with the same vulgarity & anti-Semitic content. Is this ''liberalism''??? No self-respecting Jew should vote for the Democratic Party.
2. Here's a news flash
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.14.11)
Americans support Israel. If you look at the percentages, they are astonishingly in support of Israel. Guess Americans do not care much for ersatz "Palestinian" terrorists." Too bad for the terrorists, eh? Sorry. Really, really sorry. Yeah, right. LOL!
3. Observant Jew out, Catholic in 40% Jewish district

5. NY Jewish population going Republican
su ,   Jerusalem   (09.14.11)
I grew up in New York. The Jewish people always voted heavily Democratic. Now things are finally changing as they wake up & realize who the Democrats really are today. Bravo!

Larry ,   Los Angeles   (09.14.11)
Liberalism once meant seeing both sides and making a fair choice based on understanding both sides. Unfortunately Liberalism has been hijacked by less than liberal minds and has now become the repository of anti Jewish and anti Israel (non) liberals.
7. to no 2
Salma, ,   Palestine   (09.14.11)
Yes I know Americans support Israel. What can we do to secure our rightful homeland-our leader Abbas is corrupt.Hamas are too strict for the average Palestinian to live in.Jordan's king does not want us.What to do.
8. #6 Larry, Los Angeles on the Left Coast.
Terry ,   Eilat - Israel   (09.14.11)
This isn't the Democratic Party of Harry Truman anymore. You could see the beginning during the disasterous Carter presidency but by the time of that lying hypocrite Clinton, the Democrats had already moved far left, many to the looney-left. You have the culmination of this process with Obama. All the wack-job academics, the 1960's radicals, assorted crazies, union thugs have taken control. While I never liked ''liberalism'' or especially left-oriented economic policies, at least the old-time Democrats were sane. In the meantime, Jews should find a new political home.

USA have been deeply infiltrated by AIPAC spies. it is no longer government BY the people, nor FOR the people.
11. salma
Evi ,   Jewish Palestine   (09.14.11)
Maybe stop posting anti-Semitic crap here, stop teaching arabs to hate us and you, salma, should be very careful with your notes here and your unmitigated hatred - somebody may be looking for you - you are upsetting many people. As per "what to do", well, maybe get off to an arab state, you have occupied Jewish Land for very long.
12. Am I to understand
Sean Green ,   Pasadena, USA   (09.14.11)

14. To #10 Sue Yes Jews live in the US
David ,   On this planet   (09.14.11)

15. #7 LOL , FAKE salma, you can shut your mouth.

do what you people do best....terrorize the world, decapitate, indoctrinate to hate, child sexual abuse according to islam codes, cut limbs off, rape white infidel women, hate the infidels, lie and lie again, don't take responsibility for your actions, do not realize cause and effect, perform genital mutilation and barbaric treatment of women, have 10 babies per family with one man to three wives no matter that you can't support even one child, continue relying on the handouts of anwra and the europeans, israel and americans, blow up buses and restaurants and the same places abroad as well. what can i say. there are so many other lovely things about you people and about your culture. it puts a smile on my face just thinking how lovely your culture is, no pun intended. by the way, abdulla is among many many that do not want you. did you ever realize why? even though they are your brothers you people have never given the world a single day of peace. you are a society of hooligans and violent radicals that can never live in peace even in the arab countries that host you.....not in their societies...they host you in, yes, refugee camps. this is how much your arab brothers love you people. so, what do you expect the jewish israelis to feel about you. corruption, theivery. lies, violence, anarchy. this is the palestinian way. hameed aboughaze, iranian

bet you israel was a much bigger and urgent issue together with the muslim mosque than the same sex marriage in n.y. jews are pretty liberal in that gay issue. this vote was a direct response to obama's middle east and israel policy. it will cost him the election amongst other dumb dangerous things he has done to destroy our country. used to be staunch democrat. now a republican by choice. barry g. gay liberal n.y.
18. A normal reply from Salma?
David Masada ,   Orlando, USA   (09.14.11)
I almost spit out my morning coffee while reading the first ever normal and logical reply from Salma! The answer to your question is not simple, your people made a dreadful choice in 1948. imagine if the then Palestinians had say yes instead of trying to kills us all? You may have had a State today. Instead no one wants you in their country and the only territory that was ever given to you, Gaza, was given to you by us, the Jews and your people turned it into a terrorist hell. Imagine what the situation could be today if instead of turning to rockets, Gaza had turn to peace? So at this point the only advice I can give you is to pray for the little midget king of Jordan to fall so your people can go back to its rightful country which was stolen from you by your Saudi brothers...
19. I will vote Republican
Alex ,   USA   (09.14.11)
When Israel is threatened like she it today, it is time for us get behind her and support those who stand by Israel.
20. #7 are you the "real" Salma ? I doubt...
Yossef   (09.14.11)
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (09.14.11)
Can you see it, Mr. Hussein Obama...??
22. #7 -- here's what to do
Softwalker ,   Canada   (09.14.11)
You've already heard these words: "I will accept a Jewish state". Do that. And, of course, stop teaching hatred of Jews to children as young as 3. Then things will start back on the right track.
23. #10 -- I know what you've been reading
Softwalker ,   Canada   (09.14.11)
It's called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It's the core ideology of not just the Nazis, but also of Hamas.
24. Obama Start Packing Your Bags
Ruth ,   Israel   (09.14.11)
As a constituent in this district, I too am a registered Democrat. HOwever, I voted for a Republican this time and will in 2012 to get rid of Obama. He is a tragedy for the American people as well as those ex pats living in Israel. I hope Turner's election will show Obama the way out of the White House. Keep talking my Brooklyn friends! Send Obama packing!
25. To Sue, hypocrite
Sidney ,   USA   (09.14.11)
Why is it that everybody can vote on their special interests without criticism, but when Jews do it it is unAmerican? Catholics vote on abortion, aid to parochial schools, gay marriage, etc. Blacks vote for special consideration like quotas, etc based on their history. Farmers vote for handouts called farm support. Hispanics vote against discrimination in immigration laws. But when Jews vote to protect the lives of their coreligionists, many of whom are relatives, people like you criticize them.

29. Republican wins NY 9th
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (09.14.11)
Shows without the shadow of a doubt the divided loyalty of most American Jews and that they will sell out American interests for those of Zionist Israel. Perhaps out Constitution should be amended to take countermeasures.
