That must be why it booed Jerusalem.
Is that like the joke about having the heart of a little boy... in a jar on the shelf. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was most closely associated with J Street, the group whose latest conference featured Obama's Chief of Staff and a call for the destruction of Israel.
Schultz won't stand up to Iran. And when asked about Jewish issues, she incessantly blathers about gay rights. I don't know what's wrong with her. Maybe it's the careerism. Also all that blonde hair dye can't be good for her brain.
Anyway, according to Schultz, the spirit of Israel is alive in the Democratic Party. That must be why it booed Jerusalem.
The Democratic Party is the natural home of Jewish Americans. Democrats’ values are embedded in our Judaism: of recognizing injustice and striving to improve our societies, of tikkun olam, of advocating for those who have no voice.
I'm sorry, those aren't Jewish values. They're liberal values. And no, calling your ideology "Tikkun Olam" doesn't make it Jewish.
Jews overwhelmingly favor women’s rights, workers’ rights, and gay rights. We believe in separation of church and state. We believe in immigration reform and providing the opportunity to others that our ancestors had when they arrived on America’s shores.
What does any of this have to do with Judaism? Nothing. None. Zippo. Schultz still can't talk about what the Democratic Party does for Jews. She can talk about what it does for illegal alien lesbians.
In an interview with Jewish Life Television (JLTV), Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz failed to provide a single reason for Jewish voters to support President Barack Obama other than abortion, which she cast as somehow intrinsic to the values of the Jewish community.
It could have been if it involved Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
"Our fundamental support of Israel – rooted in our shared Jewish and Democratic values – will never change," Schultz writes.
Really? These folks booing would care to disagree.
Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
But they also booed God. And God and Israel are both absent in Schultz's version of lefty Tikkun Olam "No God Allowed" Judaism.
