In a recent flurry of correspondence, several people in Hawaii’s Jewish community were asked to call Abercrombie last week to support last week’s pro-Israel legislation, but when he didn’t comply, they implied they plan to support him anyway with financial resources and votes in the 2006 election.
Marian Grey, a Hawaii Kai resident who is Jewish and involved with the local Republican Party, says if the local Jewish community is truly concerned with the survival of Israel, its members must demand respectable representation from all of its Congressional delegation members.
With his poor record for freedom, for justice and for the American way, its time that Hawaii voters ask who Abercrombie really represents -- the people of Hawaii and the people of America or the terrorists who want Americans dead and America’s allies destroyed.
