It is important to understand that these large NORPAC donors, who appear to want the US at war with Iran, are a only tiny fraction of the American Jewish population and are mostly Orthodox. In short, they are a minority, within a minority, within a minority. Why they and Trump’s long-time buddy, Israeli PM Netanyahu, want war with Iran remains an abiding mystery to us. It is very, very, important to understand that Netanyahu and Trump are in open conflict with those Conservative Jews whose synagogue was recently attacked. The majority of American Jews are not Trump or Netanyahu or Putin’s sort of Jews. The current head of NORPAC is an apparent extremist named Dr. Ben Chouake. The only real cure for anti-semitism is to understand that there is a great diversity in Jewish religious and political beliefs, just as there is a great diversity in Christian and Islamic religious and political beliefs.

In March 2017, Leon and Roz Kozak hosted (an apparent fundraiser) event for Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi. At the event Wicker said that he wanted to “sanction Iran for non-nuclear purposes“, and wanted to have the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps internationally designated as a terrorist entity. He has co-sponsored anti Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) legislation (S. 170, the Combating BDS Act of 2017).

Wicker sits on four Senate committees in the 115th Congress: the Armed Services Committee; the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee; the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW), and the Rules Committee.

Going to war with Iran, appears to be Roger Wicker’s idea of helping Veterans.

NORPAC Hosts Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) in Englewood

Wicker’s attempt to stop Americans from boycotting Israel is an extreme violation of American Constitutional rights.

In 100 Days, A New Jewish Elite Rises Under Trump” By Nathan Guttman April 30, 2017 https://archive.is/Jvhhh The above article claims that Sheldon Adelson is not orthodox. The Adelsons are big Netanyahu supporters and have given big to Chabad, which calls itself Orthodox. The Adelsons are major extremists supporting new Jewish settlements on UN Mandate Palestinian land. Miriam Adelson’s mother was Hassidic Orthodox.

NORPAC’s largest donations appear to be to Roger Wicker and Ted Cruz, though we haven’t added them all up.
And, Cruz and Wicker’s largest donations appear to be from NORPAC:

Orthodox Judaism represents only around 10% of Jewish people in the United States. Those who are extremists are an even smaller percentage. Trump supporters are almost entirely Orthodox Jews, especially Chabad adherents, like Ivanka and Jared. However, not all Orthodox support Trump. Outspoken opponents of Trump appear to be primarily Conservatives, such as US Congressman Adam Schiff, or Reform Jews, such as US Senator Blumenthal. Furthermore, Conservative and Reform and Secular Jews represent the mainstream of American Judaism, almost 3/4 of whom dislike Trump.

American Jews are 35% Reform, 18% Conservative, 10% Orthodox, 6% others, 30% Non-denominational https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Jews

Although Trump is popular in Israel, only 26 percent of American Jews approve of him. Most Jews feel less secure in the United States than they did a year ago. (No wonder, given the sharp rise in anti-Semitic incidents and high-level winks at anti-Semitism, from Charlottesville to Eric Trump’s recent claim that Trump critics are trying to “make three extra shekels.”…“) See: “America’s Jews are watching Israel in horror“. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/israel-is-driving-jewish-america-farther-and-farther-away/2018/09/21/de2716f8-bdbb-11e8-8792-78719177250f_story.html

Orthodox Judaism is not a centralized denomination. Relations between its different subgroups are sometimes strained and the exact limits of Orthodoxy are subject to intense debate. Very roughly, it may be divided between Ultra-Orthodox or “Haredi”, which is more conservative, and Modern Orthodox Judaism which is relatively open to outer society. Each of those is itself formed of independent streams. While adhering to traditional beliefs, the movement is a modern phenomenon.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthodox_Judaism Chabad Lubavitch considers itself Orthodox, but not all Orthodox agree.

Some few Orthodox leaders supported Hillary, including the original founder of NORPAC, Rabbi M. Genack: “The Orthodox Case for Hillary Clinton — and Against Donald Trump – The Forward Oct 6, 2016 · Despite Orthodox support for Trump, New Jersey Rabbi Menachem Genack makes a strong Orthodox argument for Hillary Clinton, says Jay Michaelson.http://web.archive.org/web/20170409160037/https://forward.com/opinion/351127/the-orthodox-case-for-hillary-clinton-and-against-donald-trump/

It is unclear if Roger Wicker is as stupid and nice as he looks and is being used by Trump and Mississippi Republican operatives such as Governor Bryant and former Governor, BGR Group founder, Haley Barbour or if that’s just a cover and he is corrupt.

Wicker Supports President’s Decision to Move American Embassy to Jerusalem
Miss. Senator Voted for 1995 Law Requiring U.S. to Move Embassy
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement in support of President Trump’s decision to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:
“President Trump’s courageous decision to relocate America’s embassy to Jerusalem is long overdue.  I supported bipartisan legislation to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem in 1995 as a freshman member of the House of Representatives. I believe now what I did then: Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided home of the Jewish people. We should treat Israel like we do every other country and locate our embassy in its capital city. 

“Concerns that moving the embassy will endanger negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians distract from the real and enduring threats to peace – the continued refusal to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist and the lingering hostility toward the Jewish state from Palestinian leadership and other groups around the world. A peace process that cannot withstand moving the location of America’s embassy was never serious in the first place.”

The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 requires the United States to establish its embassy in Jerusalem.  Then-Congressman Wicker voted for the legislation, which passed 374-37 in the House of Representatives and 93-5 in the Senate. Currently, the U.S. embassy is located in Tel Aviv, and the United States does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – despite the fact that Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital since 1950. 
The legislation includes a provision for a presidential waiver, which must be renewed every six months. Every U.S. president since President Bill Clinton has signed the waiver, keeping the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is home to several other embassies and is located about an hour outside the capital city of Jerusalem.

President Trump has instructed members of his administration to begin the process of moving the embassy to Jerusalem. The process is expected to take several years.

Wicker Reveals Committee Assignments for 115th Congress
Miss. Senator Retains Seniority on Commerce, Armed Services Committees
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today announced he will serve on four Senate committees during the 115th Congress: the Armed Services Committee; the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee; the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW); and the Rules Committee. Subcommittee assignments will be released later this month.

“These committee assignments will allow me to continue representing our state on issues of national security, job creation, and regulatory relief,” Wicker said. “I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to reverse eight years of executive overreach and enact policies that will grow the economy.”
Wicker has served as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee since January 2008. His position has allowed him to help provide America’s military with the resources necessary to carry out its missions and to ensure Mississippi continues to play an active role in our national defense.

He remains the second-most senior Republican on the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, which has jurisdiction over a wide variety of issues important to Mississippi, including telecommunications and telehealth, rail, highways, ports, aviation, NASA, the Coast Guard, and oceans and fisheries.
Wicker will continue his work on the EPW Committee, where he oversees a broad range of issues, including oversight of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

As a member of the Rules Committee, he oversees Senate rules and regulations, as well as federal elections“. Permalink: https://www.wicker. senate. gov/public/index.cfm/2017/1/wicker-reveals-committee-assignments-for-115th-congress

As of 2001, Orthodox Jews and Jews affiliated with an Orthodox synagogue accounted for approximately 50% of British Jews(150,000), 27% of Israeli Jews (1,500,000),[51] and 13% of American Jews (529,000). Among those affiliated to a synagogue body, Orthodox Jews represent 70% of British Jewry,[52] and 27% of American Jewry.[53]… Among Orthodox Jews, the fertility rate stands at about 4.1 children per family, as compared to 1.9 children per family among non-Orthodox Jews, and intermarriage among Orthodox Jews is practically non-existent, standing at about 2%, in contrast to a 71% intermarriage rate among non-Orthodox Jews. In addition, Orthodox Judaism has a growing retention rate; while about half of those raised in Orthodox homes previously abandoned Orthodox Judaism, that number is declining.[60][61] … Orthodox Jews subscribing to Modern Orthodoxy in its American and UK incarnations, tend to follow far more right-wing politics than both non-Orthodox and other Orthodox Jews. While the majority of non-Orthodox American Jews are on average strongly liberal and supporters of the Democratic Party, the Modern Orthodox subgroup of Orthodox Judaism tends to be far more conservative, with roughly half describing themselves as political conservatives, and are mostly Republican Party supporters.[63] Modern Orthodox Jews, compared to both the non-Orthodox American Jewry and the Haredi and Hasidic Jewry, also tend to have a stronger connection to Israel due to their attachment to Zionism.[64]…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthodox_Judaism

The title of this should be a tiny minority of Jewish leaders support Cruz. We’ve no time to check each one, but they are almost certainly all a minority of Orthodox Jews:

Trump and Chabad Lubavitch leaders. This is the Jewish sect of which Ivanka and Jared are members. Trump’s father was also connected to Chabad via Bunny and Sonny Lindenbaum. Trump’s father was friends with Netanyahu, as are Jared’s parents. Trump has been friends with Netanyahu since the 1980s. This has little to do with Judaism. This is Jewish extremism and most likely Jewish mafia.
