Bad Night for the Jewish Echo Chamber

posted on November 8, 2012

Jay Michaelson for The Jewish Daily Forward looks at the significance of Tuesday’s election through the perspective of the “Jewish establishment,” a conservative group that focuses solely on advocating Israeli and Jewish rights. Michaelson believes that President Obama’s victory, as well as the election of other liberals, indicates an American public that is more than simply pro-Israel. Michaelson writes, “This election should serve as a wake-up call for those in the Jewish community who similarly seek to deny the reality of Jewish public opinion or the reality of the Israel/Palestine conflict. Yes, at certain conferences and institutions, everyone agrees with you. But outside your bubble, those whom you purport to serve — and to represent — have a far broader range of vision.”
