Yes, Jews Love Glenn Beck, But They're Dan Friedman

Here’s another sign of the growing political distance between America’s left-liberal Jews and the Jewish state. Glenn Beck, the conservative pundit generally demonized by everyone from J Street to the ADL to the New York Times, is in Israel receiving a much warmer welcome than Prime Minister Netanyahu ever received at Obama’s White House.* Israelis qua Jews are maturing and gaining self-confidence, while many American Liberal Jews (say 78%) are stuck on ...well, being liberals. As this gap widens, it’s going to be fun to see who misses who.

Dan Friedman

*I hope professor Dershowitz won’t think badly of me for pointing out the color of Obama’s abode.
