USA Jews Don't Have Israel's Back....................from Dan Friedman

Cheering U.N. Palestine Vote, Synagogue Tests Its Members

This time around, Obama won 70% of the Jewish vote, down somewhat from 78% in 2008. Pundits infer that shows Israel isn’t a priority for American Jews. Alas, if only that were true, Israel and America would both be better off.
Further reading: For a true Jewish perspective on the meaning of Israel’s outsider status, have a look at The Blessing of Isolation, a blog post from a Rabbi worthy of the honorific. (Hint: Isolation is a blessing and it’s part of Hashem’s plan.)
