Jews Reflecting on Hispanic Power

“A recent ADL poll showed that 12 percent of Americans hold anti-Semitic views – but among African-Americans, the figure is 28 percent, and among foreign-born Hispanics it is 35 percent.

‘If 20 years from now the largest caucus in Congress is Hispanic, they will have a great deal to say about where foreign aid goes,” says Foxman. ‘On church-state issues and all kinds of social issues – some of which impact directly on the Jewish community and some indirectly – they will have a great influence. We are working on it now, so as they become the majority force, there is a sensitivity, a relationship. It’s a major challenge.'”

  1. Is it possible to turn back on full RSS feeds? I only read blogs that provide full RSS feeds, and would like to continue reading yours. Thank you.
