Jewish Voters to Hear of Netanyahu’s ‘Red Line’ Criticism

Text is sending this message to “about a million” Jewish voters today:

The message is direct:

Prime Minister Netanyahu is fighting for the very survival of the Jewish State: “Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.”

But Obama responded, “NO red lines”for Iran. Then, president Obama refused to meet Prime Minister Netanyahu but invited Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi to the United States.

Plenty of folks who study the Jewish vote in U.S. elections point out that American Jews have more concerns than just the state of Israel. But when the security of Israel seems particularly perilous — an Iranian nuclear program continuing to grow, neighboring Syria descending into chaos with a hostile ruler increasingly desperate and willing to threaten the unthinkable, and of course, now neighboring Egypt’s new rulers taking a distinctly anti-Western, anti-American turn . . . maybe Jewish voters’ hierarchy of priorities shifts a bit.
