Jews Stand Behind Tom Delay's Inside Cover Story reports:

"He may be under attack by a phalanx of left-wing groups, mostly financed by billionaire George Soros, but House Minority Leader is backed to the hilt by Soros' fellow Jews.

"And they have good reasons for backing the embattled Republican.

"DeLay is one of Israel's most stalwart supporters in Congress.

"'DeLay is arguably the best friend Israel has in Congress,' Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, which adamantly opposes the creation of a Palestinian state told the Jewish weekly Forward. 'He's not simply a guy who you go for help. He gets other guys to help. A guy like DeLay will call you [to ask] what can he do.'

"Added Republican activist Jeff Ballabon, head of the conservative Center for Jewish Values, "DeLay's concern for Jewish survival and his active friendship for Israel are deep and personal," Ballabon told the Forward. "They existed long before the Oslo terror war and long before Jewish organizations or fundraisers ever discovered him. Those in the Jewish community who have come to appreciate the depth and magnitude of his friendship ought to stand with him now."

Well, that's one point for Delay, perhaps, but what I couldn't stomach about this report was this: "According to Lessner, Soros, 'frustrated in his inability to defeat President Bush, has conspired with the DNC and the House Dems to defeat the Bush agenda by destroying Tom DeLay. These conspirators believe that they can 'Newter' Tom DeLay the way they did Newt Gingrich in the late 1990s, thereby stopping the progress of a conservative Bush agenda and setting up the Democrats to retake control of Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008.'"

Just how 'conservative' is the Bush Administration's record run-up in the size and cost and scope of government; and just how 'conservative' was Newt - Third Way - Gingrich? His futuristic Contract With America was all rhetoric and no substance. With very few exceptions, that contract took us farther away, not closer to the limited government, and republican model of our Founding Fathers. Read through my Third Way Series, which you can tap into by first reading "Contract With America - The Betrayal Begins", and then following the links, to get a taste for what I mean.
