Your “Calif. GOP Senate candidate to travel to Israel” has an unfortunate paragraph. At first it seems rather innocent but on closer inspection and introspection the thoughts behind it and that it coveys are shocking.
“Boxer, who is Jewish, has strong support among pro-Israel groups.” – This gives the impression that the support is BECAUSE she is Jewish. This would be unlikely if she would not herself be a strong supporter of the Jewish State.
This reference though implies that “all Jews of course support Israel and supporters of Israel of course vote for Jews.” This is very far from the truth.
This is the old canard that Jews would be more loyal to each other than to their host country – a popular anti-Jewish myth.
