Letter: Puzzled by Jewish response to presidential politicians

Editor,
I wonder if someone could answer my following question.

Growing up in Israel, and being exposed to significant information about its security challenges etc., I am totally amazed at the American Jewish political attitudes.

Donald Trump, not a personal favorite of mine, but humongous in his support of Israel, is clearly an enemy of the Jewish political establishment. Even though, his opponents, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden might bring havoc on Israel.

Trump’s actions on Iran and on Jerusalem, puts him on par with Cyrus the Great of 2,500 years ago who helped the returning Jews build the second Temple.

And yet, more than 70% of American Jews will vote for the Democrat nominee, and at the same time care, (presumably) about Israel.

Does anybody expect Bernie Sanders to worry about anti-Semitism, while embracing Ilhan Omar?

I am totally baffled by this dichotomy.
