Jewish people in America are generally grateful (and sometimes amazed) that “Conservatives,” including Evangelicals and much of the far Right are strong supporters of Israel and have close, warm ties (now) with the Jewish-American community.
There are still plenty of neo Nazis and white supremacist out there baiting and hating Jews, and vandalizing synagogues. And now there are many folks on the Left who regard Israel in the same category as Apartheid South Africa in its treatment of Palestinians. Jimmy Carter said that in a book. Yes, a lot of Jewish Americans are grateful for heartland and bible belt support in the U.S.
But that can fall apart real fast if the U.S. has to send several hundred thousand troops to the middle east to support an Israeli war with Iran (and its proxies), after the nuclear arms talks with Iran fail. It will be easy to assign the blame to the Israeli Prime Minister who wants the negotiations to fall apart; and who will have said that in an unprecedented speech before the U.S. Congress.
When American casualties start to mount (and that’s not even a worst case), will mothers and fathers in the U.S. heartland and bible belt remain on the side of Israelis and Jews? (It would be no shame to waiver). Or will they join the Left in blaming it on Israeli interference in American elections and politics, “controlling U.S. foreign policy” (as in tail wagging the dog)?
Things like this can turn on a dime these days, when movements or coalitions years in the making can be destroyed in weeks and months, over social networks. The Iran nuclear talks are apt to fail anyway. Why are Netanyahu and Boehner making it amazingly simple to blame it on Israel?
