In a statement released on Saturday evening, the National Jewish Democratic Council’s executive director, Aaron Keyak, stopped just short of declaring Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul anti-Semitic, and warned that American Jews should be alarmed that Paul won yesterday’s Conservative Political Action Conference presidential straw poll.

I look forward to seeing Rand's strategy

Regarding the Israeli lobby.

If he understands the nature of lobbies in general, that they are eternally critical nor ever satisfied then he may be successful.

One must remember that these same lobby groups were also very critical of Obama. They are not partisan and have only one purpose. Such are lobby groups.

I think he should be honest and just express his vision. The forum he chooses to express that vision will also be interesting to discover.


Rand is looking better all the time with all of this negative attention from the establishment.

Cyril's picture

Rand Paul anti-semitic, now?

Rand Paul anti-semitic, now?

Yeah, right. Like there's an emergency for him to hate whatever group of people. Suuuuuuuure !

Hey, Mr. Aaron Keyak:

I don't care WHO or WHAT you are for spitting that filth out of your mouth.

Please do us a favor and get lost - or better yet: GO TO HELL.

It's the United States of America, here. Not Italy. Nor France. Nor Greece. Nor Spain. Nor Turkey. Nor Zimbabwe...

... and IT'S NOT ISRAEL, EITHER, mind YOU,

whether YOU LIKE IT OR NOT - your ENDLESS HYPOCRITICAL WHINING is getting reaaaaaaaaally old,


With my most sincere Contempt,

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

National Jewish Democratic Council

At the 1988 Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, no one was surprised that Governor Michael Dukakis received his party’s nomination for President of the United States. The surprise for many in the Jewish community, including some Jewish delegates at the Convention, was the fight over including in the Democratic Party’s policy platform a resolution endorsing a Palestinian State, a position that was not yet acceptable to Israel, the American Jewish community or the US government. (It was not until the Oslo Accords of 1993 that the "two State solution" gained traction.) Although a similar attempt had been made at the 1984 convention, the reemergence of the issue and the level of support for it concerned Jewish community leaders. Democratic Party officials refused to allow a vote on the proposed resolution in 1988, but there was a vociferous debate. The incident was a further wake-up call to Jewish Democrats and pro-Israel activists.

After the elections, a group of prominent Jewish Democrats decided to create a new organization for Democratic Jews, one that would work alongside the Party, not within it, and would serve as the national voice of Jewish Democrats. The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) would be a counterpart to the already established National Jewish Coalition, now called the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), and would represent Jewish interests to the Democratic Party and work on behalf of Democratic candidates. NJDC opened for business in 1990.

Israel has, multiple times,

Israel has, multiple times, offered 2-state solutions which have been sabotaged by the outside powers which claim to represent Palestine.

As far as non-Jews, on here arguing the validity of one Jewish sector over another... That is just stupid--Not logical--Comparable to an Baptist arguing one Hindu sect's legitimacy over another.

We may be dumb as sheep, but we herd like cats, and are more clever than monkeys. What sane person would think us cattle?

They did?

When exactly did Israel offer a two-state solution?

Which Jewish sectors are you referring to?

EDIT: I will comment on this

later. I removed my comment because I thought it might have inhibited discussion here. It looks like things are rolling now.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.
