Following sinking poll numbers among Jewish voters in both New York City and throughout Florida, former New York Mayor is piling on as well against an Obama presidency Mayor Koch deems has not been a friend to the Jewish state. At the heart of Koch’s complaints are President Obama’s continued emphasis on Muslim-American relations, and the president’s now infamous request that Israel submit to pre-1967 borders with Egypt.
In a lengthy letter published in the New York Daily News, the former Mayor promised he would campaign against Obama across the country if the president failed to “get the message” and his anti-Israeli policies continued. Mayor Koch also indicated displeasure over the now well-documented example of President Obama rudely leaving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sitting alone in the White House, indicating to the Primer Minister he was going upstairs to have dinner with his family.
Koch also warned Barack Obama that as president he must view any attack on Israel as an attack on the United States. In 2008 Obama enjoyed nearly 80% of the Jewish vote. Such strong support is appearing increasingly unlikely for President Obama come 2012.
