Barbara Streisand urges Jews to vote for Obama
"Obama shares our values, he has implemented the strictest illegal sanctions on Iran, (Economic, psychological warfare, media propaganda, threats and assassinations), caused death and destruction elsewhere in the world (we love that), spends the American taxpayer dollars just on Israel...let's give him 4 more years to just wrap it up for us Jews."
An airbrushed Barbra Streisand, in a National Jewish Democratic Council video, urged the reelection of President Obama, saying Mitt Romney "does not share our values."
Streisand, who had already endorsed Obama, released the video Friday through the NJDC. She emphasized women's rights in her message, saying Obama "has taken our country forward by expanding women's rights and fighting for social and economic justice," whereas "Gov. Romney would take us backwards and is as extreme as it gets when it comes to a woman's right to choose."
In addition to noting the candidates' sharp differences on abortion rights, Streisand also cited differences in policies on health care and tax policy, praising Obama's approach and saying that Romney's proposed policies would hurt the poor and middle class.
She referred to advances for gays under Obama and said the president had implemented "the strictest sanctions ever" on Iran to prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
"Mitt Romney does not share our values, [the idiot might muck it up] I know Barack Obama does," Streisand concluded.
Last week, former New York Mayor Ed Koch officially backed President Obama for another term in office. In a video clearly targeting American Jewish voters, the same Koch who has repeatedly criticized Obama for affronting Israel gave his wholehearted endorsement – calling Obama a “true friend” of Israel.

Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz
Holohoax survivor Elie Wiesel
