for those that stay only on YWN and don’t go to goyishe websites
here are excerpts from CNN and Fox News
I’ll start with CNN
“We’ve asked the people of this district to send a message to Washington, and I hope they hear it loud and clear,” Turner said at his election party in Queens with a packed room, many of them Orthodox Jews.
“Mr. President, you are on the wrong track.”
Fittingly, in a race largely centered on U.S. policies toward Israel, Turner stood on a stage with Israeli and American flags behind him.
Koch, a Democratic Jew, hoped his support would send a message to the White House that Jewish Americans were dissatisfied with Obama’s policies on Israel — namely the president’s position that a future Mideast peace solution requires Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders, with land swaps.
“I like President Obama … I helped get him elected,” Koch said at Turner’s election night party. “But he threw Israel under the bus.”
minutes after the election, the Republican Jewish Coalition released a statement in support of Turner.
“Jewish voters are coming to see that Republicans offer real solutions to our economic crisis, are resolute friends of Israel, and represent a way forward to a better future,” said executive director Matt Brooks.
He added that the election has “huge implications for 2012 races in states with large Jewish communities, such as Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.”
now for FOX
Weprin, a 56-year-old Orthodox Jew and member of a prominent Queens political family, seemed a good fit for the largely white, working-class district, which is nearly 40 percent Jewish.
Weprin became embroiled in New York-centric disputes over Israel and gay marriage, which cost him some support among Jewish voters.
Orthodox Jews, who tend to be conservative on social issues, expressed anger over Weprin’s vote in the Assembly to legalize gay marriage. In July, New York became one of six states to recognize same-sex nuptials.
Former Mayor Ed Koch, a Democrat, endorsed Turner in July as a way to “send a message” to Obama on his policies toward Israel. And Weprin was challenged on his support of a proposed Islamic center and mosque near the World Trade Center site, in lower Manhattan.
