The hottest new issue video is a mini-documentary following Irina, a 23-year-old liberal Jewish New Yorker who voted for Obama in 2008. The film features exclusive interviews with leading journalists and politicians from the United States and Israel including Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz, NYC Mayor Ed Koch, Senator Joseph Lieberman and others.
Irina, the YouTube posting notes, has grown increasingly concerned about the policies of the Obama Administration as she has learned more about the President’s policies across the Middle East and towards Israel in particular. Irina has come to realize that "when the chips are down," the President may not "have Israel’s back" as he says.
“I don’t know how many people realize this, but today, Israelis are lining up for gas masks and cleaning out their bomb shelters,” Irina begins.
American politicians have been united for generations in “leaving politics at the water’s edge” and in general loyalty to Israel, but that level of honor has appeared to fade in both parties over recent decades.
