Jewish Democrats For Romney: IT’S A MITT–TZVAH!!

Dr. Paul Brody, of Great Neck, Vice President for the International Committee for the Land of Israel (ICLI), has launched a campaign entitled “JEWISH DEMOCRATS FOR ROMNEY: IT’S A MITT-ZVAH!!” Dr. Brody is puzzled as to how anyone, let alone Jews, could support Obama, in light of his dismal economic record at home and his anemic foreign policy program, most notably his antagonistic dealings with Israel, including no reference to Jerusalem in the original Democratic platform. Perceiving that most of these supporters are registered Democrats, Dr. Brody has focused his attention on Jewish Democrats, whom he feels “should know the facts better.” Dr. Brody himself never switched his affiliation from the Democratic Party, although his views are currently much more closely aligned with the Republican Party, so that he is able to criticize certain Democratic Party ideologies as a Party member. Over the past 3 years, Dr. Brody, together with Dr. Joe Frager, Chairman of the Board ICLI, and Odeleya Jacobs, Vice President for media relations ICLI, life-long Democrats, has accompanied Gov. Mike Huckabee to Israel on three occasions, including arranging for him to address the Knesset; was instrumental in Glenn Beck’s presentations in Israel, including an address in the Knesset in the Summer  of 2011; and accompanied Councilman Dan Halloran, Congressional candidate for Queens’ 6th District, to Israel in the Summer of 2012. During the 2008 elections, Dr. Brody coined the slogan”Say CAIN (YES) for McCAIN!”

“JEWISH DEMOCRATS FOR ROMNEY” was launched on October 16, 2012 at the demonstration at Long Island’s Hofstra University before the 2nd Presidential Debate. Dr. Brody and his 13-year-old son Joey, a student at the Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ), joined the Republican Jewish Coalition, and unveiled their “Jewish Democrats for Romney” placard. The placard garnered much attention and comment, both encouraging and negative, at Hofstra, by other demonstrators and passers-by. Dr. Brody hopes that this campaign will stimulate Jewish Democrats, and everyone else, to start thinking about supporting Gov. Mitt Romney—hopefully, quickly. After all, it would be a MITT-zvah (good deed)!!
