I have often observed how church denominations which become liberal inevitably change their views on abortion, homosexuality, and Israel. And the more liberal they become, the more militant their pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, and anti-Israel stances become. Will this be the fate of the Democratic Party? It’s already more than two-thirds there.
On Tuesday, we posted a meme on Facebook with a picture of Linda Sarsour and this text: “Radical feminist and anti-Semite Linda Sarsour claims Nancy Pelosi ‘is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men’ because of her support for Israel. The left is devouring itself.”
In response, Renee commented, “Mark my words, the Democrat party will, like the Labour UK party, turn into a full fledge Antisemitic and Anti Israel party. Its metamorphosis is happening Now by being complacent in addressing the antisemitic cancer within the party!”
Could she be right?
According to a March 6, 2019 headline on Gallup.com, “Americans, but Not Liberal Democrats, Mostly Pro-Israel.”
According to the article, based on results from a survey conducted in February, “The percentage of Republicans saying they sympathize more with Israel in the conflict [with the Palestinians] fell from an all-time high of 87% in 2018 to 76% today. Last year’s reading was taken as the Donald Trump administration was preparing to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a change that highlighted Trump’s strong support of Israel.
“The percentage of Democrats siding more with Israel fell less sharply, from 49% to 43%; however, today’s figure approaches the lowest level of Democratic partiality toward Israel since 2005.”
Is it a coincidence that the Republicans are more strongly pro-life and pro-family, as well as pro-Israel, than the Democrats? Are these three issues somehow related? And does the Democratic shift towards the radical left signal the end of (or, at least, the great diminishing of) their support for Israel?
To quote the Gallup article again, “conservative Republicans have long been the most partial to Israel in the conflict, given their consistently high net-sympathy ratings. Moderate/liberal Republicans have the second-highest net-sympathy for Israel, followed by moderate/conservative Democrats, while liberal Democrats have the lowest net sympathy for Israel.”
Do you see the trend?
