Jerome Fischer's Nov. 10 guest commentary, "How come you Jews supported Obama?"rationalized his deep commitment to liberalism and the Democratic Party.

He has traded Judaism for a secularism that has infected the left with an anti-Israeli bias. He has failed to recognize, however, where his interests and ideals as a Jew and as an American truly lie.

Liberal Jews seem to be more passionate about abortion rights and government-run health care than preventing Iran, Israel's sworn enemy, from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Mr. Fischer should ponder whether his Torah is Jewish law or the Torah of liberalism.
