Ed Koch Sees NY-9 As Test of Obama's Support for Israel

Ed Koch raises the stakes on the special election in Queens and Brooklyn, saying an upset victory by Republicans would send a signal to the White House.

Koch emails:

If Jewish New Yorkers and others who support Israel were to turn away from the Democratic Party in that congressional election and elect the Republican candidate to Congress in 2011, it might very well cause President Obama to change his hostile position on the State of Israel and to reestablish the special relationship presidents before him had supported. His own reelection will be decided next year in 2012.

If the Republican candidate runs on these four issues:  Israel, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in the 9th Congressional District, which will probably no longer exist after redistricting takes place in 2012, I believe that candidate would win.

  1. Simple fix… aid to Israel and other countries needs to stop, medicare, medicaid and ss programs need to be ended.

  2. Why do Dems. continue to put up with this moron?  And how stupid has he become that he thinks Turner can run on any platform other than gutting Social Security, ending Medicare and Medicaid?

  3. Ed,

         Obama will never change his opinion on Isreal, he hates jews.  My dirt farmer dad taught me a long time ago actions speak louder than words.  Whether you like it or not, true christians consider jewish people to be Gods chosen people and by their faith have to stand behind you.  Aitheist love the liberal Democratic party while most God fearing Christians are conservative Republicans.  Who will the Jews stand with?
