Must american Jewish people are tired of the conflict in the middle east. We are questioning the tactics that rare being used on the Palestinians and we have a history of voting anti - war. We are ready to put the world first ahead of the israeli government . I just hope the people who are anti-israel can distinguish Zionist from Judaism other wise their will be an increment of violence against the Jews in the world

I just found it suprising that Dr Paul would dominate this caucus, considering what MSM has been saying about his stance on Israel.
Plus the other candidates have ben ripping into his Israel/foreign policy stance. Funny these Jewish voters didn't feel that way!

And what happened? It was dominated by Ron Paul supporters!!!
In a room full of Jewish folks, they overwhelmingly voted for Dr Paul, who "supposedly" has a bad policy towards Israel.
Angry Ron Paul supporters overtook a special caucus Saturday night for religious voters who honor the Sabbath, prompting long lines, frantic GOP officials and voter fraud complaints.
Part of the trouble was some Paul supporters told voters they could show up for the late-night caucus at a suburban Jewish private school for whatever reason. But voters could only participate if they signed a declaration affirming that they couldn't vote during the regular morning caucuses because of their faith.
Most supporters signed the declaration without hesitation, after confirming to an Associated Press reporter that they had missed the earlier caucuses for other reasons.
You just contradicted yourself. The room wasn't full of Jewish folks...it was full of Ron Paul supporters who purposely waited for the late night caucus to make it appear that Jewish folks support Ron Paul.
With just half of the vote counted, officials have already discovered some discrepancies. In some precincts, the number of ballots did not match the number of voters who signed in to participate in the caucus.
State party secretary Jim DeGraffenreid said they are still determining "the facts" and then will decide how to proceed, but acknowledged the ballots from those precincts may be dumped from the results.
