Senator Richard Blumenthal--one of 10 Jewish Democrats who supported the Iran Deal

There is very little to celebrate in the failure of Congress to block the president’s disastrous Iran deal, but at least the outcome should put to rest the pernicious charge that “Zionists” or Jews control American politics.

Though major Jewish organizations worked passionately to defeat this deal, they failed completely—even with Jewish members of Congress. Of the 29 self-identified Jews in the House and Senate, 19 of them—or nearly two-thirds—voted with Obama, not with the State of Israel. Republicans stood unanimously against the deal, so all of these pro-administration votes were from Democrats, whose deepest commitment isn’t to Jewish faith or love of Israel, but to liberalism, their true religion.

Media coverage never mentioned that all Jewish representatives in Congress—28 Democrats and 1 Republican—amount to just 5.4% of the House and Senate, giving the lie to the toxic old claim (by Pat Buchanan) that Capitol Hill is “Israeli Occupied Territory.”
