“What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who, it appears, have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel.

She said this in reference to a Feb. 27 letter by major Democratic donors, many of them Jewish, to party congressional leaders urging them not to advance new Iran sanctions legislation. “This is clearly against Israel’s best interest,” she said.
1) (Non-Jewish) Republicans say they want to be Jews' best friends, particularly with respect to Israel.
2) Jews express policy positions with respect to Israel that differ from those advocated by Republicans.
4) Republicans express bafflement that Jews continue to vote Democratic.
Bizarrely, Jews don't react positively when non-Jews lecture them about what terrible Jews they are. It's the strangest thing -- it's almost like building a campaign strategy entirely around negging doesn't work.
