#1 I suspect that you and tw have already explained this using one-syllable words, but tell me again why any American Jew in his right mind would think about voting for Sanders?

#3 /\ See the term "Useful Idiot". More devout in worshiping the United Front of the Left than their own group's interests and/or religion.

#5 Why should someone's religion determine what they think about a foreign country?

Is a Catholic president supposed to put the Vatican's interests first? That was one of the major arguments against electing JFK.

#6 I think JFK was as much a Catholic as Bernie is a Jew.

#7 To be fair, I don't think the pope lets his Catholicism get in the way of his policy.

#8 Israel is a foreign country just like Mexico, Hungary, or Japan. Ally or not, imagine a US president putting their interests before our own. Just because he's the same religion as them? Insanity.

And since when do countries have state religions anyway? Isn't that something that went out centuries ago, for very well-founded reasons? Separation of church and state is a sound principle.

AMERICA FIRST. I don't get what's so hard to understand about this concept.

#10 We get it. You don't like Jooos or Israel. They are, however, a pretty-dependable ally and security cooperator, national and international. Keep up the self-defeating agitprop

#11 NO foreign country comes before America, ever. I don't care if you share their religion or not. Every country looks to its own interests and putting our interests last in favor of foreigners is what led us to the huge problems we have today.

Somehow I think more of the same isn't the solution. A change is needed, a clean break.

#12 Why should someone's religion determine what they think about a foreign country?

Would it be rude to mention Islam?

#13 I think what Herb is saying is that George W. should have just nuked everything from Saudi to Pakistain, but let his Christian beliefs put foreign civilian lives ahead of US policy, the world would be peaceful, especially considering all those countries' governments operate according to their state religion of Islam.

#14 Just started Raymond Ibrahim’s’s book Sword and Scimitar. It makes it pretty clear why religion is a key concern in foreign policy opinions. And as for America First, absolutely, and America’s good friends a close second. After all the decades of trying to find a solution, why are we still talking about this.

#15 You're feeding the troll. Didn't you even notice how he changed the subject from Bernie "anti-Zionism" to "NO foreign country comes before America, ever."?

#16 Since when does shutting down argument ever result in more wisdom?

I look forward to having my views challenged! I enjoy argument!

What I don't enjoy is whataboutism and name-calling. People who do this know their arguments can't win in an open marketplace of ideas. They have to have complete control over the conversation to stay afloat. They always have to push for a situation that makes it harder for any voice but theirs be heard.

#19 the real question is not why an American jew would support Israel or not, but why any Jew would support Communist ideology.
