Democrats vote to oppose Israel

Recently, the House voted 410-8, with 3 abstentions, in favor of a resolution "condemning the recent attacks against the State of Israel, holding terrorists and their state-sponsors accountable for such attacks, [and] supporting Israel's right to defend itself." Here's a list of the 12 congressmen who declined to support Israel:

Voting "no" or Voting "present":

Neil Abercrombie (D., Hawaii)
Marcy Kaptur (D., Ohio)
John Conyers (D., Mich.)
Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio)
John Dingell (D., Mich.)
Barbara Lee (D., Calif.)
Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D., Mich.)
Maxine Waters (D., Calif.)
Jim McDermott (D., Wash.)
Ron Paul (R., Texas)
Nick Rahall (D., W.Va.)

Sadly, one can all but guarantee in advance that the Democrats will continue to receive about 80% of the Jewish vote. I guess gay/lesbian marriage and abortion-on-demand are the only issues that matter for liberal Jews. They are truly a disgrace to the Jewish people.

Note: The lone Republican, Ron Paul, who voted with the Democrats against Israel is, in fact, a RINO ex-"libertarian" candidate with close ties to Cindy Sheehan and others on the radical, anti-war Left.
