Leaked Cables on Israel:
Stealing the Jewish Vote

(October 24, 2016)

Return to Leaked Cables on Israel: Table of Contents

On June 20, 2016, Jewish Democrat mega-donor Haim Saban sent an email to Hillary's campaign staff including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, John Podesta, and others, in which he stated that Hillary had to “differentiate herself from Obama on Israel.” Saban goes even further, giving recommendations as to how she could do this, and advising the Clinton campaign to not let the Republicans take the Jewish vote.

She needs to differentiate herself from Obama on Israel .It can easily be done w/o criticizing the President,and this so that she can recapture the 11% lost between 2012 and 1992.

We addressed this in our meeting yesterday:
+speak strongly against anti-Semitism, and boycott.
+reaffirm the US commitment to Israel's security
+anything else your research tells you the Jewish community is sensitive to.
This is NOT a NY or California issue,,,,it is a Florida one. Pls LMK how I can help here.

[US Jewish vote: 2012: Obama (Democrat) 69% of Jewish vote, Romney (Republican) 30% 2008: Obama (Democrat) 78%, McCain (Republican) 22% 2004: Kerry (Democrat) 76%, George W Bush (Republican) 24% 2000: Gore (Democrat) 79%, George W Bush (Republican) 19% 1996: Clinton (Democrat) 78%, Dole (Republican) 16% 1992: Clinton (Democrat) 80%, George Bush Sr (Republican) 11%]

Let's not allow them to steel the Jewish vote from us.

Heard Yesterday: "If I am president, this country will do whatever it takes to help the people of Israel survive and prosper as a Jewish state," Marco Rubio said." [WashTimes<>]
