Dem Party platform dumps 2008 acknowledgement that Jerusalem is capital of Israel, also dumps “God” as well

The Democratic Party Platform refuses to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel this year even though they did just 4 years ago:

TIMES OF ISRAEL – The Democratic Party’s 2012 platform is missing key pro-Israel provisions that had been in the 2008 platform, but were apparently removed, Republicans charged Tuesday. The 2008 platform had expressly said that “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel,” but the 2012 platform carried no mention of Jerusalem, according to a reading by the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC).

Similarly, the 2008 platform demanded “the isolation of Hamas until that organization renounces terrorism and accepts other requirements of the peace process,” insisted that “any settlement of the so-called ‘refugees’ question in a final settlement make a future Palestinian state, not Israel, the destination for Palestinian ‘refugees,’” and noted “that it’s not realistic to expect [the] outcome of negotiations to be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949,” the RJC noted.

All those provisions were missing from the 2012 platform.

They also dropped God’s name from the platform as well:

CBN NEWS – Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.

This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:

“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:

“We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”

The Brody File has calls into DNC to explain why God’s name has been dropped from the platform. Some critics will suggest that when you have planks in your platform that support abortion rights and gay marriage then it’s no wonder that God’s name would be dropped as well.

Delegates will vote on the platform on Tuesday.

Does one need more proof of how radical the Democratic Party has become?

    And besides that, the muslim brotherhood doesn’t look kindly on the reality of Jerusalem belonging to the Lord God and Israel, nor do they want the name of God mentioned. allah would be better suited.

      Devout Muslims would frown on the platform though also- they don’t support homosexuals’ so called ‘marriages’.

      • I know they do Galatians- but they also will use any platform to spread their own satanic ideologies, even if it means putting up with dhimmis who practice abominations.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          I can believe some would!

      • FutureOnePercent

        The Democrat party is all based on voting blocks that would seem largely inconsistent. Blacks overwhelmingly do not support homosexuality, muslims hate Jews, etc…

        They have done a fantastic job of keeping everyone in their respective playpens and not looking at the Party as a whole to think “I’m a social conservative, why am I still voting for the party that is pushing abortion?”

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          It’s really sad.

    HELLO to ALL American Jews

    WAKE UP and smell the ——– STALE BAGELS

    They look like a BIG FAT ZERO!!!!

      Those bagels are way past stale, they’re rancid.

  • God hasn’t been dropped from the platform, Obama is mentioned 48 times. You idiots, 4 years ago marks when the rise of the oceans began to slow and the earth began to heal and we got jobs for the jobless and healthcare for the sick.

  • wodiej

    God will prevail whether liberals like it or not.

  • I’ve heard they are going to launch a new slogan. It’s not “yes we can” anymore, but something much more truthful and closer to their hearts: “Ave Satani! Ave Lucifer!”

    The new Theme is: “Ave! Ave Versus Christus!” (Hail Hail Anti-Christ!)

    I jest of course, but if they did this, at least it would be more honest then the BS they hide behind now.

  • Goldni007

    Yet the New York and northeastern jews along with the California Jews in Hollywood will stI’ll continue to vote Democrat.

    • Rshill7

      It’s very difficult to fix stupid. The democrat party their parents taught them to vote for no longer exists.

      • warpmine

        It never existed unless by some coincidence they were all racist douche bags. Nixon at least risked it all by helping Israel during the Yom Kippur war. Obama would likely point out the locations of the Jews in hiding as it’s his duty even as a quasi-muslim.

    • Lambs voting for the slaughter. 🙁

  • The God I worship is jealous and vengeful.I pray He will rain fire and retribution on the heathen who mock him.

  • Rshill7

    The 2008 platform mentioned Obama 8 times. This one mentions him by name 200 times!

    This party is bankrupt. If you are a generational democrat. Look at them now. If you don’t, at a minimum, switch parties, you are part of the problem. Big time. It’s a progressive cult. Are you generational democrats in full approval of people like George Bernard Shaw?

    Look him up. Read about him. Read his quotes about Hitler and Mussolini. Read about Woodrow Wilson too while you’re at it. Dupes.

      I did just that…..switched party affiliation this very day!

      • Welcome aboard! 🙂 We need all hands on deck to save this ship! 🙂

  • 4Hoppes2

    I wonder if they will cancel Cardinal Dolons benediction too.

  • God??? Where??? There is nothing that God stands for that has any harmony in the Democratic Party…Infanticide??? Are you kidding? God to the DNC is as foreign as an alien landing here from Saturn….never gonna happen. God being removed suits perfect to their Marxist Messiah in the WH!

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    An anti-God platform- the Democratic platform as is. The founding fathers of this country who revere God and credited Him and faith in Him with how this nation would endure would indeed be saddened by today’s America.

    John Witherspoon
    Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Clergyman and President of Princeton University

    “While we give praise to God, the Supreme Disposer of all events, for His interposition on our behalf, let us guard against the dangerous error of trusting in, or boasting of, an arm of flesh … If your cause is just, if your principles are pure, and if your conduct is prudent, you need not fear the multitude of opposing hosts.

    “What follows from this? That he is the best friend to American liberty, who is most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion, and who sets himself with the greatest firmness to bear down profanity and immorality of every kind.

    “Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I scruple not to call him an enemy of his country.”

    Welcome to the Hate America First Political Party Convention. The Marxist Bolshevik platforms include antisemitism, racism and all forms of Communist propaganda. They will do everything the lamestream lapdogs falsely accused the Republicans of doing last week and more. You know…all the lies, mean spirited speeches, spinning comments out of context etc.

    They will spit on friends and allies of the USA and support its enemies. It will be islamofascist friendly, under the guise of political correctness.

    Only thing missing is the empty chair.

      Thank-you for the introduction of Wild Bill for America. It was a pleasure.

    • warpmine

      Thanks, that was fantastic.

    • PVG

      Excellent. Sent to all my contacts!

    So, this time around even the window-dressing comes off. Only the secularists would have an agenda such as theirs, worshippers of false idols that they are.

    The rest of us have God, and so does Israel.

    • kong1967

      I’d be willing to bet that a lot of Democrats aren’t happy with it, either. Ten bucks says that Obama demanded them to be removed.

  • Siobhan7

    I think Obama may be the culmination of everything that is evil in this country. His arrogance, conceit and disdain for God will not go unanswered. Maybe part of God’s plan is to draw onto his person all that is wicked and bring it to a head like a big ugly boil, and at the appointed time, it will all be taken out in one big swoop. Pray for our country!

  • jackl92

    The DNC is a big fat dump.

    • kong1967

      It sounds better if you just say it. I know you want to.

      The DNC is a big fat turd.

  • Nukeman60

    This is very big. It may seem like a small thing and the Dems will diminish it as much as possible, but I just saw Dick Durbin on Fox jumping through hoops not to answer the simple question from Brett Baier of why.

    Durbin tried to accuse Brett of not being ‘fair and balanced’ and of coming up with all kinds of wild conclusions, but Baier just stated that he was merely asking why these words were removed, that he was not drawing any conclusions.

    This may be a very strong attack point in the next 2 months. I hope the RNC jumps on it and jumps hard. When the libs dance this much, there is a strong possibility of rain in the air. Mark my words.

  • Once God is removed then basically its all over.

    We were warned time and time again in the old testament what happens when God is taken out of the equation. In a generation you lose your freedoms your lands and lives as other rulers take the place of God.

    The old boring outdated Old Testament has never been more applicable than it is in these times.

    The world is changing fast and we need to be on guard.

  • drphibes

    The capitol of Israel is Obama.

  • DocBarry1

    No this is dispicable

  • Sober_Thinking

    They are gauze over a gaping wound.

    They’ve already had DWS speak… I could stop there if you know what I mean. They had someone speak who supports abortion. They had someone speak who was gay… not sure of the details of that speech. They apparently just had a “veteran” speak who also claimed to be a Christian and a supporter for Obama. From my experience, that’s a bit of an oxymoron. Let me explain. I’ve served with many, many Christians and I know many veterans who are Christians. But not one single one of them that I’ve talked to is for Obama and the gay lifestyle-embracing, abortion-supporting liars of the Democrats… especially the Liar-and-Chief who has squelched religious freedoms. So, I don’t know what God this clown serves or what military he was in… but I strongly question his authenticity.

    The Democrats are a facade… a mask that will be pulled off if this monster is re-elected. The fact that so many in America are duped and believe Obama has changed and has the country’s best interests at heart is proof that the devil is in the details.

    P.S. I won’t watch one second of “The Liar’s Circus”… my wife is trying to stomach it out to see if they have anything redeeming or hopeful to say. Nothing so far. Her biggest observation is that pretty much no one has said, “God bless…” anything. Amazing.

  • warpmine

    Have they dropped the national anthem as well? Seriously, they may as well as they’re about anything but American in nature. When will they shed the stars and stripes in favor of the hammer and sickle?

    It’s like little Sodom.

    • PVG

      Just a matter of time!

    • kong1967

      They’ll probably ban infidels next.

  • PVG

    After all these years as a registered Democrat I can no longer justify remaining affiliated with a party whose platform is a lie, promotes infanticide, and REMOVES GOD. I have just become a registered Republican! GO MITT AND PAUL!!!!

  • kong1967

    Obama, keep it up and you’re going to make your entire party look as Muslim as you do. I’m sure that will prompt many of them to drop the party like a hot potato.
