Helping American Jews learn to give Sarah Palin the love she deserves

Israel has no greater friend than Sarah Palin.  She has shown repeatedly that she has a deep and abiding respect for the Jewish state, and that she understands the existential stresses under which it survives.  Benyamin Korn gets this and, despite incredible derision from Jewish Democrats, has begun working to build a Jewish coalition recognizing Sarah’s myriad virtues vis a vis Israel.

As part of Korn’s effort, he has started a blog site called Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin.  The website needs a bit of polishing, especially since the newest posts seem to be appearing at the bottom, not the top, which makes the site look stale, rather than vital.

That’s cosmetic stuff, though, and easily fixed.  What matters is the substance here, which is that Korn is trying to get American Jews past their superficial prejudices (“she’s from Alaska;” “she speaks funny;” “she didn’t go to an Ivy League college;” “she belongs to a fundamentalist Christian sect;” etc.) and instead to look at the woman’s substance.

I don’t know whether Sarah is ready to be president, whether she is electable (given how much the Left’s hatred permeates society, infecting people who are casual about their politics), or whether she is actually presidential material.  Only time will tell.  What I do know about Sarah is that she is a truly admirable American, many of whose values resonate with me and with most Americans (even those prejudiced Jews); that she is a bone-deep philosemite, whose appreciation for Jews extends to the state of Israel; and that she is a political powerhouse who cannot and should not be ignored.

So, please, check out Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin.  Help make it a vital, much-read website.  American Jews, how have long been on the receiving end of unthinking prejudice, need to expand their minds.  They need to leave behind a Left that is increasingly, and openly, antisemitic, and they need to look to their true friends.

    Funny, that: she’s from far away, speaks funny, didn’t go to Ivy League and belongs to a different religion (although she is hardly a Christian fundamentalist). Aren’t those some of the very same prejudices that Jewish immigrants complained about receiving from WASPs in the early 1900s?

    George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Harry S. Truman didn’t go to Ivy League universities, either. Come to think of it, they didn’t go to universities at all.

    You are forgetting that hatred of conservatives is a driving force that brings them to the highest office.  No one in the past century was hated as much as Richard Nixon.  Second most hated and derided by the elites and media was Ronald Reagan. Third most hated, after his election, was George W. Bush.  All three gained votes in their second run for President despite contumely piled to the ceiling. Nixon and Reagan got the most Electoral College votes in history.
    These historic facts give the presidency to Sarah Palin automatically.

    Wouldn’t that make American Jews on the giving end of prejudice, rather than the receiving end.
