Jews have historically been leftists, over the last century consistently voting for left-leaning, liberal parties in Canada, the U.S. and Europe in higher proportion than any other religious group. Those 'liberal,' left-leaning Jews are about to experience a political sea change as they turn massively to the right.
The sea change stems from the rise of antisemitism, which has always motivated Jews to action. A century ago, Jews flocked to the Communist ideal, believing that a world government in which all were equal would protect them from being seen by their fellow countrymen as an ethnic other.
But now it is the left that has become the standard-bearer for antisemitism, with liberals seen as winking at if not encouraging a hateful atmosphere toward Jews.
