    she has always been on the wrong side when it comes to Isreal, I’m sure this time it will catch up with her at the polls.

    This has happened before and it will happen again,, we need to vote her out of office.

    lol
    Guest

    you expected any different. blacks are very loyal to their own. this, plus the fact that jews are divided meant she was never voting against. we should learn something from them. a bit of unity would go a long way…

    The congressional black caucus has more pull (abd voter’s) in her district so is happy to let the Jewish constituents feel important but not enough to put her seat on the line after all its all about keeping her job…

    Silver lining

    Silver lining

    As devastating as this news is, I take comfort in the fact that the great Jewish tradition of advocacy of Am Yisrael continues. Faced with one of our people’s greatest threats in recent history, our leaders fought like lions. We can hold our heads high.

    From Menashe ben Israel (prevailed upon Cromwell to let the Jews back into England) to Joselman of Rosheim (the great defender of German Jewry) to Moses Montefiore (the patron of modern Israel) to, today, Chanina Sperlin (didn’t answer Clarke’s phone call).

    Mi k’Amcha Yisrael!

    I understand her
    Guest
    I understand her

    I fully understand from she’s coming from and why she decided to vote like this. She closely associated with the Progressive movement, J Street and the like.

    But…

    Please don’t claim to care about what we care about. This isn’t about funding for this school or that project. This is about the lives of our brethren who face extermination – yet again.

    You have the right to vote and we will continue to welcome you in our community. You are our elected representative until the next elections.

    But please, don’t tell us you care about us. You owe us that.

    While I agree with the apposition to this deal Isreal is NOT facing extermination “again”

    in 1939-45 – which I take it you were referring to – the Jews had not army and were under a foreign govt. Today Israel on the other hand has the strongest army in the ME and more nukes then most western countries.

    Why did you give her so much credibility?
    Guest
    Why did you give her so much credibility?

    She is voting for Iran to have more nuclear power because that and everything it implies have always been her sentiments. It pained me to see so many naive people, after Crown Heights’s long, long history, compromising the dignity of our community by begging for something from a bottomless cup- it just doesn’t hold water..

    I contacted Schumer because, even though I did not know how he would vote, he is not a known sonei yisroel. Our NOT approaching her would have made a better statement about which politicians we trust.

    She will not disrespect her dear brother Barack Hussein Obama, she has absolutely no clue what this bill is about. I was at the meeting with her 2 weeks ago. She doesn’t know about Iran more then she knows the recipes for Tzimes.

    She’s also not threatened by Crown Heights cause we are Mamosh 1% of her vote. So let’s not make threats against her we can’t fulfill. Hashem will help. End of story.

    A representative who bucks pleas from constituents is not representing, and should be bucked by the voters.

    What a shame , hope our dear Jews who cozy up to her will learn you can never trust those people. Let’s see what happens comes Succos whose Succah will she be invited to.

    She’s being blackmailed and has been assured of political demise if she doesn’t do as the establishment is asking of her. Our little votes count for nothing she rather suck up to the higher-ups than listen to her constituents. Basic politics!

    Its very simple, if you think this deal is as good, then why not wait for a better deal. How can you simply judge this deal as it being suffice, when the victims of this deal are allteling you it is a bad deal, when the military genrals tell you its a bad deal, when at face value this does not equate?! If we waited close to forty years for a deal with iran, why rush and grab the first offer on the table ? Is it that you don’t feel threatened by this deal, that allowes you to carelessly… Read more »

    She played us all for attention and to make as if it was a tough decision I said all along she will never vote against Obama for her it’s a black and white issue

    They don't care about the Arabs either

    They don't care about the Arabs either

    If Iran did manage to send a bomb to Israel G”F, it would affect many many more Arabs than Israelis. Not just the Arabs living in Israel but all the Arab countries surrounding Israel. So much for the ‘humanitarian’ liberals.

    good for America?

    good for America?

    How does any self-respecting American support a deal with a country where “death to America” is chanted regularly, where America is known as “the Great Satan”, where world-wide terrorism is supported, and will now be supported with billions of additional dollars? and trusting them to oversee their own nuclear sites? if it were not so serious it would all be laughable. The Democrats are desperately trying to sell the lie that it’s either “diplomacy” (really, with this deal?) or war. Anyone opposed is a “warmonger” or a “crazy” ( as per our President.

    the only thing politicians care about, is getting elected again.
    being that most crown heights Jews don’t vote, she doesn’t take are concern seriously .

    ARE WE ONLY 1% OF HER VOTING?

    Again, Talk, Talk, and blah, Blah….

    We had a chance to show our VOTING POWER a few weeks ago.

    Instead of coming out in the thousands, the “Young” (Whatever they call themselves), bad-mouthed, denigrated our candidate Raitport.

    Now this same “Young” (Whatever they call themselves), were busy hanging banners, hanging posters, etc.

    And you would think all this is לשם שמים for a holy purpose……

    Wrong!!!

    Congresswoman Yvette Clarke did not support the candidate that has on his payroll a member of the “Young” (Whatever they call themselves).

    And now it’s payback time.

    It’s all politics……..

    Where have all the years of “built up relationships and common cause” gone? Dvorie Halberstam has been working with officials and speaking about the threat of terrorism for the past 20 years – Has she given them too much trust and credit? It seems Yvette Clarke been laughing all along, and the sad trait of trying to please, grovel, and bootlick has blinded us from seeing her and all the others taking us for another long ride!

    we need a professional campaigner

    lets hire someone that knows campaigns. All of OUR esteemed liaisons don’t have any experience running a campaign, as evident by the sophomoric run of state senator just recently!! we should hand pick a minority candidate, and assist them on the inside out, not visa versa.. We need a campaigner, not someone that hosts barbeques?

    from her Wikipage: “On the Colbert Report, in its “Better Know a District” segment in early September 2012, when Stephen Colbert asked the three-term congresswoman what she’d have changed back in 1898 (the year Brooklyn merged with New York City) if she could go back in time, the congresswoman responded the abolition of slavery. Colbert responded, “Slavery…Really? I didn’t realize there was slavery in Brooklyn in 1898,” (Slavery was abolished in New York state in 1827.[19]) Clarke responded immediately with, “I’m pretty sure there was” stating that the Dutch owned slaves in New York in 1898.[19][19][20][21] The next day, the… Read more »

    All of those upset about this. There’s at least one simple thing you can DO. Make sure all of your friends and family are registered to vote and nudge them to vote in even the small elections. You’d be surprised that even though we are a minority in all of the local races we could still be very powerful if only we voted in big numbers.

    I just got a call asking for Clark’s constituents to call to “thank her” for her her diplomatic vote for this deal. My reply was “THANK HER?! THANK HER? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND” the woman hung up as fast as she could before I went into a real tirade
