Can't say as I blame them
American Jews feel threatened by the Christofascists on the right:
CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S. Jewish leaders say they are increasingly worried that Christian conservatives want to turn America politically and culturally into a country that tolerates only their brand of Christianity.Republicans sometimes don't seem to understand why their party isn't more popular with the Jewish population; they apparently think that their unthinking support for Israel is enough to earn their loyalty. But even if Jews did march lockstep in support of Israel - which they don't - it's not surprising that they might be more worried about the efforts on the part of the American Taliban to use the power of the state to enforce the principles of their twisted bastardization of Christianity.
"There is a feeling on all sides that something is changing," said Abraham Foxman, director of the New York-based Anti-Defamation League.
"The polls indicate a very serious thing -- that over 60 percent of the American people feel that religion and Christianity are under attack," he said on Thursday in an interview.
"Some are saying we are attacking (Christianity). This whole movement is not anti-Semitic or motivated by anti-Semitism. But sometimes unintended consequences are much more serious than intended" he added.
