Jonah Goldberg: Israel or liberalism? The divide faced by most American Jews
Placeholder Image
“I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president,” vented Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, on Boston Herald Radio last week. It was a small controversy in the grand scheme of things, easily overlooked during a week when: a German pilot turned a routine flight into a murder-suicide mission; Ted Cruz drove the media batty by announcing he will run for president as Ted Cruz; an Army sergeant and Taliban captive the White House touted as a hero was charged with desertion; and America joined forces with Iran in Iraq to kill Sunni jihadists while allying with Saudi Arabia in Yemen to kill Shiite jihadists (who are backed by Iran). Still, King’s comments did enrage a lot of people, particularly people eager to make political hay.
