Speaking at the "Salute to GOP Governors" sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition Tuesday in Minneapolis, Jewish radio talk show host Dennis Prager said that though "Republican Jews don't have a monopoly on nice people, we have a monopoly on wisdom - to discern the difference between good and evil, and how to fight it.
Expressing his support for the Republican ticket, Prager said "Auschwitz was not liberated by peace activists. Gandhi said to the Jews of Europe 'do not resist Hitler.' There's a difference between wisdom and feeling good about yourself. I dare say that the American military brought more goodness on earth than all political science professors put together."
Prager opened his address with a reference to the joke that there are so few Republican Jews that they could meet in a phone booth, saying that "it's no longer a joke. It'll be one of the great favors if people will stop saying that 'liberal' and Jewish are synonyms."--MORE--
