The person behind Sarah Silverman''s political sex antics and other far-left (anti-Sheldon Adelson ad) so-called-Jewish pro-Obama propaganda comes out.
He''s Mik Moore. He is president of the Jewish Council for Education and Research that launched “Obama On Israel,” a project aimed at presenting information about President Barack Obama’s record on Israel. And he spelled out his thinking here and I''ve excerpted this:
...I took personally the disenfranchisement of voters in Palm Beach Country..In 2008, I co-founded an organization that set up what we called “The Great Schlep”...This year, the Romney/Ryan ticket and much of the Republican Party have been attempting to divide our generations, pitting one against the other...many of Romney’s proposals would hurt seniors.Romney has vowed to repeal “Obamacare.”...Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan seem to believe that you are ready to sell out your kids and grandkids as long as your needs are taken care of. I think Romney and Ryan are wrong. They and their fellow Republicans are underestimating the bond that exists across the generations, inside our families. Jewish tradition speaks to this obligation, to teach and care for future generations: l’dor v dor. I experience it in my own family. And I saw it in the conversations between schleppers and bubbes four years ago.In the final weeks of the campaign, let’s get on the phone and talk to our grandparents and grandchildren. And when we vote, let’s remember what’s at stake for everyone in our families.
I do not agree with his approach but I do realize that perhaps I am not as knowledgeable as he on America''s social and economic policies.
Nevertheless, there is a crucial point in his orientation and he leaves me no option but to think if I have to make a choice: my elderly relatives or Israel''s existence, its security and the future of its almost 6 million Jews. And its culture, and scientific advancements for all of mankind. The old Diaspora vs. Jewish National Homeland frame.
But if I do go in that direction, that might upset Moore more.
