American Thinker: Why are so many Jews Democrats? It has been hard to fathom why the Jews, thought by many to be so intelligent and overrepresented in science, medicine, literature, music, and sociology, would embrace Democrat ideology so as to plant the seeds of their own economic and cultural destruction. Jews are voting Democrat in numbers that far outpace Gentiles and people have been wondering why for a very long time. It makes no sense if Jews are as intelligent as they are reputed to be. Democrat ideology mitigates against the best interest of Jews in America.
Seventy-three percent of American Jews say they are liberals who support Democrat candidates. What is puzzling is that you would think their affluence would lead them to choose Republicans, who are far better poised to serve Jews’ economic interests. But no.
One New Jersey rabbi proposed that Jews vote Democrat because it’s in their DNA. Jews were slaves in Egypt, which all good Jewish families still talk about. They were victims of the Holocaust where they were slaughtered wholesale. As a result of this history, so it is thought, Jews have historically been motivated by a drive to “do good” in the world. There is no doubt Jews were and are still victims of anti-Semitism, but being a victim should not mean one is beholden to victimhood. Victimhood is how we got where we are today, with ethnic groups warring against white people and each other. Jews don’t have to embrace toxic victimhood in order to remember their history.
Until recently Democrats have always been “for the little guy.” In my own Jewish family that was the case, but that was back in the 50s when socialism and Marxism were mostly hidden from public scrutiny and no one could calculate the socialist damage being done. This is a different time. An acquaintance of mine proposed the notion that it is not in their DNA but in the colleges where this indoctrination toward liberalism and Democrat voting begins.
Since Jews have a high rate of college attendance compared with other demographic groups and are exposed to socialist/Marxist ideas there, the college explanation makes some sense. Read More …
Opinion: The answer to this question can only be found in God’s word, because the Jewish people are God’s covenant people …
“And I will establish My covenant between Me and you (Abraham) and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.” Genesis 17:7
And the land of Israel has been given to them as an eternal possession:
“Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; nor shall the sons of wickedness oppress them anymore, as previously” 2 Samuel 7:10.
A transgression occurred when God’s people rejected Messiah Jesus:
“Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy.” Daniel 9:24
And that transgression will not be fully reconciled until the 70th week of Daniel, or the 7 years of tribulation. Let’s look at verse 24 in detail:
v. 24 “Seventy weeks (490 years, Hebrew for weeks is shabua, 1 week = 7 years) are determined for your people (Jews) and for your holy city (Jerusalem),
To finish the transgression, (rejection of Jesus Messiah)
To make an end of sins, (Kingdom age)
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness (Millennial Reign),
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy (Messiah).”
God chastened and disciplined His people until the appointed time:
“Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes;
Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart,
And return and be healed.” Isaiah 6:10
When God’s people regain their sight:
“For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in (Rapture).” Romans 11:25
When the church is taken up to the New Jerusalem, God’s covenant people will know their Messiah:
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.” Zechariah 12:10
“And so all Israel will be saved” Romans 11:26.
