The Jackson-Robertson Test

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2006

What motivates and drives the political divide among American Jews? The right asks how the left can feel at home in a progressive camp that so often is hostile to Israel. The left asks how they can be comfortable with advocates of intelligent design, with budget-busting tax cuts for the rich, with a shameless expansion of executive power. A simple test: Who'd you rather hang out with: Jesse Jackson or Pat Robertson?
