Why do American Jews keep voting Democrat?

I have analyzed and studied one of the most unknown mysteries of the universe.  Why a majority of American Jews vote Democrat.

Israel and the security of the Jewish people should not be a partisan issue but in the past few Presidential elections it has.  I have narrowed it down to a few possibilities that can explain such a mystery, especially given how the Democratic Party has obviously evolved into a party that endangers Jews in America and Israel.

One of the first ideas that came to mind is that our people are a very stubborn bunch.  We can go back to the beginning of our history to see how stubborn we are.  Our own people were fortunate enough to see God’s miracles firsthand, even witnessing the awesome revelation at Mt. Sinai. Then, because of impatience, they began to worship a golden calf.  Now in modern days, Democratic officials welcomed the “Arab Spring” and radical Islam, yet the stubbornness of today’s American Jew will continue to vote Democrat.  After seeing everything firsthand, our people still vote with the anti-Semitic party. Just like our ancestors worshiped the golden calf.

Another area I have observed is a very touchy subject is that of the Holocaust.  Many Jews today have relatives who were murdered in the Holocaust and are afraid or confused about who to trust.  The majority have immigrated to populated Liberal cities. To feel safe, they assimilate into the cultural utopia of Liberalism.  They forget where they came from, including Jewish values and tradition.

The final observation is the majority of Christians from other countries who try to convert the Jewish people in Israel are reported down the line to Synagogues and to other Jewish organizations. The sad part about this is, as a result Israeli Jews have a hard time trusting American Christians.  Most American Christians respect and understand Jewish teachings and values and for the most part are very similar with a few theological differences.  But the trust from Jews is not there. So they align themselves again with the utopia of Liberalism where they have been lied to that Liberalism “tolerates” all religions.

In conclusion, I believe it is stubbornness, fear, and a lack of trust that causes the majority of Jews to vote Democrat.
