Thursday, December 10th, 2009 I’ve never entirely bought the argument that the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is somehow in bed with terrorists and extremists. I do see a group that  has a hard time dealing with the extremism in its own community.  And its ambivalent sounding statements on terrorism and extremism sometimes undermine the group’s credibility.

Jewish Republicans were crowing this afternoon about a new Quinnipiac poll showing a big drop in President Barack Obama's support among a Jewish electorate that gave him overwhelming support last November.

 I just finished writing another Iran story, and space issues forced me to leave out one interesting element: the emerging split between Jewish pro-peace process groups over Iran sanctions.

This week J Street, the lobby and political action committee that remains the target of choice of Jewish conservatives, announced it is now supporting the Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act, which  will impose sanctions on companies that help Iran obtain refined petroleum products.

Honestly, covering the Jewish beat in Washington is just sometimes too much to take.

I mean, seriously does anybody care if the white House invited 400 or 4000 prominent Jews to this year's White House Chanukah party?

Judging by several calls I've had, you'd think a mere 400 guests at a party that wasn't even a feature of the White House until the early 2000s was just one more sign of how President Obama doesn't like Jews, or a signal to Israel or something.
