Despite its faults, The Washington Times reports,

The American Jewish community’s focus has shifted from concern about Israel to what it sees as growing anti-Semitism worldwide since the September 11 attacks, a mood swing that carries implications for the upcoming presidential election, several Jewish leaders say.

The Jewish leaders say President Bush’s gains among heavily Democratic Jewish voters for his support of Israel and the Iraq war could be offset by policy initiatives influenced by evangelical Christians, who many Jews think are anti-Semitic despite their support of Israel.

As my friend Aphid would say, “Yee haw! Frosty mug!” American Jewry’s coming to its senses.
