Sarah Palin is the loudest US advocate for supporting Israel and bombing Iran, denying the Islamic republic nuclear weapons. She deserves the thanks and support of American Jewry.
Jennifer Rubin noted in her article, «Why Jews hate Palin» in Commentary magazine, Jews disapproved of Sen. John McCain’s choice of Palin as his running-mate by a 54 to 37 percent majority. The sneering broadsides published against Palin by leading American Jewish writers are legion.
In her article, Rubin gives a number of reasons for American Jews’ rejection of Palin.
On the one hand, American Jews, who overwhelmingly self-identify as Democrats and disproportionately identify as liberals, oppose Palin for the same reason they oppose all social-conservative Republicans: Because she isn’t a liberal Democrat. What makes American Jews’ rejection of Palin unique is its emotional potency.
Rubin argues that the visceral hatred that many American Jews express towards Palin is effectively an issue of class hatred, or snobbery. They are four generations removed from the sweatshops where their great grandparents labored on New York’s Lower East Side. And they don’t like this woman with a funny accent who went to University of Idaho, guts fish and shoots moose.

I am of two opionion about Sarah Palins wishes of a bombing raid on Iran.
I wish the Ayatollah regime in Iran would fall, and the Iranians finally get their freedom from both colonialism and religious despotism. And I wish the Jews could live in peace in their Homeland, Eretz Zion.
But as a Messianic Christian I also teach that a Jew that do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, run the risk of ending up in Hell. Because Jesus is the only gate to the kingdom of Heaven. Only He can save both Jews and gentiles.
A Sarah Palin promoted US-Israeli war with Iran will lead to the killing of thousands of unsaved people, also in Israel.
Thats why is might be fare better to get a «false peace» as fast as possible, an event that will bring Jesus back to Israel and save the Jewish people.
To pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I guess that must be far better than to opt for another Middle East war?
What do you think?
