America's Support for Israel on the Line
We are American Jews who believe that the Donald Trump/Mike Pence team are good for America and good for Israel, our only democratic ally in the Mideast. Join us by adding your name to those who are supporting President Donald Trump.
We need to keep a Republican controlled Congress to achieve the goals of the 2016 Republican platform.
We support Trump's and the Republican party's pledges.
TRUMP: "My number one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran."
The Presidient has already refused to sign the certification that Iran is in compliance.
2016 REPUBLICAN PLATFORM ON ISRAEL entitled “Our Unequivocal Support of Israel and Jerusalem:”
- Calls support for Israel “an expression of Americanism”
- Recognizes "Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state" which President Trump did in December 2017
- Commits America to "ensuring Israel maintains a qualitative military edge over all adversaries"
- Rejects the false notion that Israel is an occupier, and specifically recognizes that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement ("BDS") is anti-Semitic in nature and seeks to destroy Israel."
- Opposes “any measures intended to impose an agreement or to dictate borders or other terms, and call for the immediate termination of all U.S. funding of any entity that attempts to do so.”
President Trump has begun implementing this program. He has to have a Republican controlled Congress to continue to support Israel. We must elect Republicans in the 2018 mid-term elections.
Jamal Khashoggi is no Daniel Pearl
"My father's Jewish, my mother's Jewish, I am Jewish." Those were the last words spoken before a young man was brutally beheaded by jihadis, on video in 2002. Those words were spoken by an (actual) American (actual) journalist: Daniel Pearl.
Acts of political murder are always shocking, but they are not all the same. The current mainstream media obsession over the now-confirmed death of Jamal Khoshoggi is understandable, but let’s call it what it is: hysteria over President Trump’s winning on the economy, in the courts and on foreign policy, and therefore possibly in these midterm elections. The manufactured hysteria is not over the killing of a fellow traveler of Osama bin Laden and a diehard propagandist of the brutal jihadist Muslim Brotherhood. It’s the appropriation for political purposes of what would otherwise be a one-cycle news story.
And why does this particular story fit the needs of the desperate and losing Democrats? It’s because they seek to tie President Trump to Saudi Arabia (they keep trying to claim he has business dealings with the kingdom, but so far no actual evidence). Their equation goes like this: Saudi Arabia is evil (they killed an “American” “journalist”), Trump is connected to Saudi Arabia and is trying to pretend KSA is not evil, therefore Trump is evil.
Our president’s foreign policy has pivoted towards the KSA, but that’s because the Saudis, the U.S. and Israel are united in battling what became the leading and nearly unstoppable threat to global peace under the previous administration: Iran. We must thwart the mullahs’ mission of global domination and their nuclear threat over the most explosive part of the world, and for that we need the help of the Saudis. Does that mean anything goes? No, but it does mean all angles have to be considered and alliances must be formed and maintained to contain the ultimate enemy. Think of the U.S. alliance with the USSR in World War II – Stalin was brutal, but Hitler had to be stopped.
An even more desperate claim from the left is that Trump is somehow responsible for Khashoggi’s murder. How? Because the president constantly, understandably, criticizes the mainstream media and calls them out for “Fake News.” For the desperate Democrats, that’s the only nexus they need to tie the president to the killing of Khashoggi. Doesn’t that sound like more Fake News to you? It does to us.
And to top off this whole embarrassing ploy to attack the president and smear Republicans just before the mid-terms, guess where all the “evidence” and hysteria over the so-called journalist, Khashoggi, is coming from? Turkey! Under Erdogan (Khashoggi’s close friend), Turkey is the world’s most brutal, repressive regime for journalists. A third of all journalists arrested worldwide last year were arrested in Turkey. Erdogan? Really?
The mainstream media are so reflexively anti-Trump that they ignore – to our peril - the strategic importance of the US-Saudi-Israel alliance, forged to defeat two growing global threats: the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian regime, both of which seek to establish a worldwide caliphate. That was also the goal of the butchers of Daniel Pearl.
Trump knows that dissolving the US-Saudi alliance in a frenzy of self-righteousness over an Islamist whose own goal was to impose Sharia worldwide would be an absurd response, one that plays into the hands of America’s and Israel’s enemies. Instead, Trump must stay the course and we must stay the course. Vote for the Trump team in the midterm elections and let’s continue winning!

The Trump Administration has given us so much to be grateful for.
The best way to thank the President and support Israel is to vote
Republican in the midterms.
The difference between Democrats and Republicans on Israel cannot be clearer. _Republicans, like President Trump, have Israel’s back. Democrats are selling Israel out to their Leftist base._
In late September, 55 House Republicans sent a letter to President Trump asking him to direct the State Dept. to register US citizens born in Jerusalem as having been born in Israel on their passport. In the same week, 34 Senate Democrats i.e. two-thirds of the Democrats in the Senate, signed a letter to President Trump urging him to restore the funding to the Palestinians that Trump had cut because the Palestinians will not negotiate a peace agreement with Israel. J St, who instigated this Democratic letter, called on members of Congress “to pushback’ against Trump’s pro-Israel policies.
_This is the reality of today’s political alignment. Today’s Democratic party is not your mother’s or father’s Democratic party._
We applaud President Trump for his leadership in moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, despite enormous international pressure not to do so, and criticism from Democrats that the time was not right.
We are grateful that President Trump has finally stopped the money flow to UNRWA and its hate-filled programs, despite Democratic legislators asking him to restore the funds. We applaud this Administration for its zero tolerance for antisemitism at the UN and elsewhere.
We appreciate that this Administration understands that Israel has a right and duty to defend against the terrorism on its borders and that the Administration’s efforts to develop better relations and military cooperation with Egypt and the Saudis was not done at Israel’s expense ,but included Israel in strategic cooperation.
We wrote before the election that the main reason we voted for Trump was that we believed that he would pull out of the disastrous Iran deal. He kept that promise, too, despite again enormous international pressure not to, and opposition from Democratic legislators. We are grateful that this Administration has Israel’s back and does not stab it in the back as the Obama administration did after the 2016 election when it abstained from a one-sided UN Security Council condemnation of Israel. Amb. Nikki Haley has made it clear that there is a new sheriff in town and that this Administration will not allow the reflexively anti-Israel actions at the UN.
Ambassador Ron Dermer, at High Holiday services this year, said that under the Trump administration, the US government has been the most supportive of Israel since the administration of Harry Truman, which means for most of us, in our lifetimes.
President Trump needs to hear from us that we are grateful for his support and for his carrying through of his campaign promises. Call 202-456-1111 or send an email to email@example.com to let President Trump know that we appreciate all he has done to support Israel and that we are going to show it by voting Republican in the mid-terms so he can continue his pro-Israel, pro-American policies without being hamstrung by Democratic resistance

Jews Need to Vote for Republicans in the 2018 Midterms
JewsChooseTrump.org Invites All American Jews Into Our Tent
"JewsChooseTrump.org is thrilled to have played a role in the election of Donald J. Trump," Carol Greenwald, Jews Choose Trump chair said following the Trump/Pence victory. "PresidentTrump is a man who will restore this country's role as the defender of our great history and the guardian of our future."
"Donald Trump and Mike Pence are both devoted to our nation's security and to the well-being of our greatest ally and the bulwark against Islamic terrorism, Israel," said Richard Allen, JewsChooseTrump.org co-founder. "Respect for our allies and unrelenting vigilance against our enemies is the way America will be led going forward."
"JewsChooseTrump.org arose to fill the missing leadership for all those American Jews who refused toaccept the betrayal of Israel and of the western world," Allen added.
JewsChooseTrump.org was formed in June 2016 and eventually comprised a national network of nearly two dozen state chairs and many thousands of members who used social and print media to share with this nation what the mainstream media refused to do - the truth about Donald Trump and his plans for America and her allies and his support for Israel.
About Jews Choose Trump
Jews Choose Trump is an independent group, not part of the official Trump campaign, which has a thousands-strong presence on Facebook & Twitter and 270,000+ unique visitors on the website http://www.jewschoosetrump.org/
We must continue to support the President in his pro-Israel policies and to work to elect Republicans in the 2018 mid-term elections so that President Trump's policies are not stymied or reversed by a Democratic controlled Congress.
Pres. Trump is the only president who honored his campaign promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. If the Democrats control the Congress, the embassy will never be moved.
Promises Kept: Iran Sanctions Re-imposed
When we first became Trump supporters, we gave two reasons for supporting Trump for president: Iran and Israel. President Trump has far exceeded our expectations on both.
As a candidate, Trump pledged to do everything in his power to overturn the disastrous Iran Deal. Last May he withdrew the US from the deal, over the craven objections of the European powers and the opposition of the Washington power establishment.
On November 5, 2018, President Trump kept his promise again and re-imposed stringent sanctions on Iran. As President Trump said: “The United States has launched a campaign of economic pressure to deny the regime the funds it needs to advance its bloody agenda”
Iran - the primary financial supporter of global terrorism - poses an existential danger to Western values, culture and life. Trump’s response to the Iranian threat is elemental to his clear-sightedness about the real danger facing America and the free world. He knows it is radical Islam.
As he did when he stood up to the universal opposition to moving the US embassy to Jerusalem,
President Trump has put the world on notice that he will follow through on his policy. The Trump Administration has vowed to fully enforce all US sanctions on Iran and has warned that those who attempt to violate or circumvent them will risk severe consequences.
Many American Jews now have self-inflicted amnesia about their commitment to defeating the cataclysmic Iran deal and the rest of global Islamic terrorism. But if they were honest with themselves, they would admit that the world is a safer place now that President Trump has strengthened our military and terminated the Iran deal.
The world is also a safer place now that President Trump has made it abundantly clear that there is no light between America and its ally, Israel. Not only has President Trump welcomed Netanyahu as a friend, moved the US embassy, and robustly countered the endemic anti-Israel bias at the UN, he has ended US financial support for UNRWA and ordered the closing of the PLO’s office in Washington DC. He is the best friend to Israel and the Jews of any American president.
If, like us, you still believe the United States must do all we can to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons, you must applaud President Trump’s actions.
If Israel is vitally important to you, your choice is clear: Vote Republican in the mid-terms to continue President Trump’s policies.
We choose Trump because we believe he will keep America, Israel and the free world safe from the dangers we face. If you agree, please vote Republican on election day.
