WATCH: Jewish Republicans Slam Democrats for Anti-Israel Tone

Yes, Republican Jews Support Donald Trump

The headline in Politico asks: “Trump: Bad for Jewish Republicans?” The article suggests many conservative (small “c”) Jews are having trouble coming around to the GOP’s presumptive nominee. It does not cite polling data; instead, it relies on opinions, such as those of Anti-Defamational League CEO (and former Obama administration official) Jonathan Greenblatt, which is a bit like asking the head of PETA what she thinks of the steaks at Applebee’s now that they’ve changed their menu.

Rubio: ‘Israel Has No Partner For Peace’ In Current Palestinian Leadership

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tells the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) that “Our president has placed his own legacy” in the way of a strong America-Israel relationship.

Now, “our allies feel betrayed and our enemies feel emboldened.”
