Democratic Party running scared – Are Florida Jews finally escaping?

Joe Biden stepped forward as a guest and featured speaker at the Boca Raton mansion of former Democrat congressman Ron Klein. The Democratic Party came out in force to the closed door, no press invited event.  Included with Biden were:

Ron Klein, former Democratic Congressman, roundly defeated November, 2010, against all odds, in a predominantly Jewish district, by upcoming Congressional star, Republican Alan West. One voter wrote at the time, “I’m a blue-dog Democrat who expected to vote for Klein. But, his immediate and then relentless negative campaigning turned me off. West  campaigned with dignity and addressed the issues. Klein underestimated the intelligence of voters.

Robert Wexler, former seven term Congressman who “curiously” resigned from the Congress, October 14, 2009 to accept a lucrative job with a far left multi-millionaire as his President of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Peace. The institute he’s joining is, as the Jewish Telegraphic Agency noted at the time, kind of “moribund.” It was founded by Slim Fast magnate, S. Daniel Abraham but hasn’t really done much over the past eight years.

The Center has evidently become more active with Wexler’s arrival, honoring at a dinner, September 10, 2010, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas,  the present leader of the PLO and protege of Yasir Arafat; and mastermind of the Munich Massacre which murdered Jewish athletes at the Olympic games; and author of a thesis to prove that the Holocaust never happened!

Also, of interest, found on the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Peace web site, were maps and diagrams describing the numbers of Israeli settlers that would need to be evacuated in each “peace” land giveaway scenario, varies between roughly 70,000 (under the 7% alternative) and 165,000 (under the  1.8% alternative).  

(This is just what the Israelis need for “Peace” – Shades of the Gaza forced withdrawal. From under what rock do these “Peace” advocates crawl?)

The organizer of the event was Debbie Wasserman Schultz – Chair of the Democratic National Committee and outspoken, frequently factually incorrect and super partisan mouthpiece for Barack Obama,  who recently, on TV September 25, 2011, claimed:

“We’re (our economy) is no longer dropping like a rock. Now we are moving forward. We’ve had 18 straight months of job growth, added 2.4 million jobs to the private sector, month after month, passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, saved the American automobile industry, which every Republican candidate for president would have let go down the tubes.”

The facts are considerably different, as stated by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis: “ During Obama’s presidency the annualized growth in the real Gross Domestic Product peaked at 3.9 percent in the first quarter of 2010. By the first two quarters of this year, it had dropped to 0.4 percent and 1.0 percent, respectively. Republican National Chairman, Priebus, in addition, cited the 9.1 percent national unemployment rate (2.4 million people unemployed) and the huge increase in the national debt.

Wasserman Schultz is also a founder and  supporter, along with Robert Wexler, of notoriously anti-Israel Washington based lobbying group called JStreet.

Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, blasted J Street, saying the organization was “fooling around with the lives of 7 million people (Israelis).” According to an article in The Jewish Daily Forward, Oren described the left-wing group as “a unique problem in that it not only opposes one policy of one Israel government, it opposes all positions of all Israeli governments. It’s significantly out of the mainstream.”

The visiting fireman for the Democratic Party, VP Joe Biden, is known for his recent vicious, orchestrated attack on Israel when he visited there earlier this year. The  recent event at Ron Klein’s mansion was a closed one (why?),  during which he met with at least 15 local rabbis chosen, we must assume, for their political leanings. Strange, that only two among them, had their names   revealed  to the press to this date – Rabbis Scheiner and Kurtz.

We’d all like to know just who those other invisible rabbis were and why they did not come out and identify themselves as part of what appears to have been a  political brainwashing meeting on their home turf? Aren’t the dues paying members of their synagogues entitled to know of their political activities while on the payroll of 501c3 institutions? After all, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also heads the Democrat National Committee, as well as being a J Street heavy, was the coordinator for the event.

What other Democrat big-wigs were in attendance? Any Republicans? This was not a “Getting to know you” event. Were they given crib sheets to use during their Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur  services to their captive audiences? Were they all supportive of Obama’s open dislike for Israel? This report below, and others do not mention any rebuke of the VP for his administration’s hostility toward Israel.

Why did none of these “leaders” stand up and speak out in support of their people? What opposition was there to having our country abandon Israel? There are no reports of Biden having curve ball questions thrown at him. Did all of these rabbis have stars in their eyes having the honor of meeting the guy who was sent to sell them a dangerous bill of goods? With so many questions going unanswered it’s logical for us to speculate and draw our own conclusions.

I am not Jewish, but all my adult life I’ve identified with Jews and Israel.
   Your “Running Scared” commentary gives me hope that Jews (not just in Florida, but across the country) will wake up and realize that Obama is NOT their friend.  From the very beginning, he has telegraphed his intent to fray the alliance the U.S. has always had with Israel.  He worshipped at the feet of Rev. Wright, a vicious anti-Semite.  Are we to believe that none of the vitriol rubbed off on him?  And his first major address (given in Cairo, not exactly a friend of the U.S.) and announced his primary foreign relations mission would be to “reach out to the Muslim community”.  He had to know he couldn’t do that and still maintain the close ties to Israel.  He can’t have it both ways.  Islam will not permit that.
  I know that the Jewish community has traditionally identified themselves with Democrats.  But Obama is not a traditional Democrat.  In spite of his denials, he leans toward Socialism.  If he is re-elected, with nothing to lose, he will be much more open in his Socialist leanings, both idealogical and policies.  And, also with nothing to lose, he will throw Israel under the bus.  I sincerely hope the Jews of America can see that.

Hi Jerome,

Great article…I am going to a dinner for Allan West in a week or so in LA, but no doubt he is on your mailing list to receive this piece.  I will get it to him also.

My best
