I am not exaggerating one iota here.
For some strange reason, although four term President Franklin D Roosevelt did everything in his power to keep Jews fleeing the Nazis out of the United States, at the same time American Jewry considered him their savior.

Even though the American military were perfectly aware of the Death/Concentration Camps which the Nazis used to murder Jews and others they considered undesirable, stopping that cruel and inhuman situation was not part of the American plan.
Roosevelt's government didn't protest the earlier antisemitic policies of the Nazis either.
And today, over seventy years later, when the foreign policies of Democratic politicians endanger the security of the State of Israel still the vast majority of American Jewry votes Democrat.
I'm not surprised that Keith Ellison has a strong chance of heading the Democratic Party, because he really represents its policies:
“The United States foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of 7 million people. A region of 350 million all turns on a country of 7 million,” said Ellison, D-Minn. “Does that make sense? Is that logic? Right? When the Americans who trace their roots back to those 350 million get involved, everything changes. Can I say that again?” Keith EllisonEllison is now trying to clean up his image, but whitewashing all of his anti-Israel statements is just cosmetic. It doesn't change the essence of Ellison.
For those who fear the Republicans because of the old KKK connections, get real. The BDS and pro-Palestinian groups are much, much larger and a greater danger to democracy, world peace and Israel.
