As always, Prager is a bit less than honest, or , at the very least, misleading..... specifically, when he states that the Dems were split as to whether to include wording regarding whether Jerusalem should be declared the capital of Israel. I think it's safe to say that, for the overwhelming majority of Dems, they don't give a rat's behind where Jeruselum's capital is....the "controversy" in that convention vote was regarding the OTHER part of the vote....ie whether there should be a reference to God included . I have no idea why they "bundled" the 2 issues like that, but any rational person (including ALL of the right wing pundits at the time) knew that the "split" had to do with the God reference, NOT where Israel's capital would be.

And somehow you think that should make Democrats more attractive to Jews? Jews believe in God.

badger....it's not my point as to whether or not the "God" discussion would make the Dems more attractive to Jews......my point was that THAT was clearly the portion of the vote that was controversial and resulted in the "split"...........NOT the part about the capital of Israel. As stated, IMO, Prager was being misleading.

And my point with my question above is that whether or not you are correct, it has no impact whatsoever on the validity of Prager's article, so why comment on it at all?

I was commenting on that particular part of THIS column....why shouldn't I comment on it? It's not as if I was commenting on something that Ann Coulter wrote. IMO, anyway, these discussion are a lot more productive if the person responding DOES respond to one or more particular points of a column, instead of just making a blanket statement

Nonsense. I SAW the video on that vote. It was clear that the "Jerusalem is Israel's capital" was at least as much hated as the "God" reference was.

Can't you people EVER be honest?

togubin...the 2 issues were combined into the 1 vote...how do you know that there was at least as much "hatred" over the Jersulam issue as the "God" issue.........as a left leaning individual I can tell you that I and pretty much every lib I know are MUHh more concerend about the mixing of church and state (in the U.S, of course) than we are about where Israel puts its capital. 99.999% of us don't give a rip about Israel's capital. I can assure you that the close vote and scattered booing was about the God issue

And my comment above is still valid. Whichever was the reason for the issue that Democrats took with the proposed plank, whether it was the Jerusalem issue or the inclusion of God issue, the reaction of the Democrats at the convention should make all Jews realize that the Democrats are a very poor fit for them. This was Prager's basic point, your posts do not in reality weaken his point, and this was MY point.

Badger....sorry but I still don't agree with you in that this was NOT Prager's point. His stated point was that, at the convention, the delegates were split as to whether Jerusalem should be the capital of Israel. I'm saying that he was being misleading in that the REAL controversy was regarding the mention of God. And, again....you don't have to take my word for it, but libs are MUCH more concerned about church/state overlap than they are with where Israel, or any other country, has their capital.But, according to Prager the delegates wer reacting to the capital issue. Simply not true.

OK, when i was a young baptist, they believed in the separation of church and

state. Now they don't!

i cannot speack for other protestant sects. Some do. Some don't.
I spent the last week of October speaking to thousands of Mitt Romney supporters in four "battleground" states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Virginia. I travelled with my Salem Radio Network colleagues Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved, and the actor Jon Voight, one of the few Hollywood stars who is a politically outspoken conservative.

During the tour, I often wished that every American Jew could have seen and heard what was said about Jews and Israel and how much time was devoted to Jews and Israel. The two non-Jews, Jon Voight and Hugh Hewitt, and whoever was the moderator (in no...
