    Obama can no longer afford to give Israel blank checks

    The transformation of America away from a white European-dominated society to a multi-ethnic mosaic is ending the United States’ romantic interlude with right-wing “Judeo-Christian” political leadership.

    The election of 2012 has proven that America that has backed right-wing dictatorships around the world, as well as the theocratic and woefully undemocratic regime of Israel, is changing its political hue.

    The demographic change in the United States will have a severe impact on the domination of Israel’s pressure groups, namely the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and the American Jewish Committee (AJC) over American foreign policy.

    With 70 percent of America’s Jewish population voting for President Obama, there are clear signs that this two percent but important percentage of the voting electorate is no longer swayed by the self-appointed and conservative Republican “Israel above all” leadership of the Jewish pressure groups.

    Obama won re-election with 75 percent of the Hispanic vote, including, for the first time for any Democratic candidate, a majority of the Cuban-American vote in Florida. Hispanics disregarded missives from Roman Catholic bishops, who endorsed the Christian “apostate” Mormon Mitt Romney over the pro-abortion Obama, and voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

    White Catholics, on the other hand, voted overwhelmingly for Romney, 59 to 40 percent. However, the past political power of white Catholics, largely ethnic Irish, Polish, and Italian blocs in the Northeast and Midwest states, was eclipsed in 2012 by the new power bloc of the Democratic Party: African Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, and young, college age whites.

    White Protestants broke for Romney, 57 to 42 percent, another indication that the Republican Party has become a minority movement representing the interests of white Christians, mostly in the South, Midwest, and Rocky Mountain states.

    The Republican Party has, belatedly, decided that it must reach out to Hispanic voters to ever again stand a chance of winning the White House. The Republicans have trotted out candidates like Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez.

    However, Republican logic is flawed if it believes it can win national office merely by having a Spanish surname on their ticket. Hispanic-Americans are rejecting the laissez-faire “vulture capitalism” espoused by the Republican Party.

    Hispanics, who are following the news from their friends and relatives in Latin America, are witnessing the success of Latin America’s state-governed economic policies, especially in Venezuela. Fresh from his October 7 victory over the global banker-backed Henrique Capriles Radonski, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has seen a 5.2 economic growth rate for his country.

    Brazil’s President Dilma Roussef’s government stimulus program is aimed at achieving a 2-3 percent growth rate for her country in 2013. Overall, Latin America’s economy is expected to grow 3-4 percent in 2012, which is largely due to government-led stimulus programs. Hispanic Americans know from their kinfolk in Latin America the differences between Republican oligarch capitalism and authentic Democratic government-initiated stimuli. Hispanics want no part of the former as shown by the 2012 election.

    In the age of Spanish-language satellite television, such news is picked up instantaneously by Hispanic viewers in the United States. When faced with the choice between corporate-dictated government policies and state-directed policies like those in Venezuela, Hispanics, even one-time fiercely conservative Cuban-Americans, see the advantages of government intervention to curtail the excesses of capitalism.

    Asian-Americans, once a bedrock of support for the Republicans, voted 73 percent for Obama. Republicans always cited the entrepreneurial nature of Asian-Americans as a natural fit for the Republican Party. However, the modern Republicans, who are retrogressive in their social policies, including policies on education and health care, are at odds with the Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist religious underpinnings of many Asian-Americans, especially those of Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Lao heritage.

    However, it is with Muslim-Americans that Republicans fared their worst. Turnout among Muslims soared at 95.5 percent of eligible voters. Moreover, 86 percent of Muslims voted for Obama, while only 4.4 percent voted for Benjamin Netanyahu’s “best friend” Romney. The emerging bloc of Muslim-American voters will have an impact on future presidential politics. A taste of things to come was the minor floor fight over the Democratic Party platform at the Charlotte, North Carolina Democratic National Convention.

    When it was discovered that the plank on America’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was missing from the platform, Democratic Party operatives quickly voted to have it placed in the platform. However, the decision resulted in vocal protests from Arab-American convention delegates, a scene widely reported by the television networks.

    As Arab-Americans and Muslim-American flex their political muscle within the Democratic Party, especially those from Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and New Hampshire, the agents of Israel, namely AIPAC, the ADL, and the AJC, will find it more difficult to ram through pro-Israeli policy planks. No longer will Democratic presidents like Obama be able to give blank check support to Israel without political ramifications within his or her own party.

    Well Obama is just one of the many presidents that tried to hamper Israel's policies. Many have tried in past but all have failed.

    He will just come and go and especially in this situation, he and his team will be the last people to put pressure on anyone else.

    I m not so sure why would you just rubbish something because you dont like the source?

    You know your very credible NY Times,Washington Post,CNN are sometimes as idiotic and as sketchy in their reporting when they want to make a point on certain theme they want to hammer into your consumer minds.

    I dont find Press TV reports highly informative and lack depth but its an alternative view nonetheless.

    You must support Zionism and Western imperialism, if you live in S. Arabia. Because this is the state policy of their kings that they worship. If their king is a Zionist western bootlicker, he surely must be right, hence most Arabs support him.

    I rubbish something not because of the source, but the content. Much of what comes out of PressTV, RT, FoxNews and PKKH is rubbish, plain and simple.

    PressTV is no worse than mushroom cloud printing NY Times.

    One must read all.

    The good, the bad, and the ones out there.
