This is the headline Drudge ginned-up to describe the (not-so-surprising) Republican victory in Anthony Weiner's congressional district yesterday. And I was always told (by Mel Gibson, at least) that the crucifixion of Jesus was the Revenge of the Jews. In any case, I wouldn't make too much of the "revenge of the Jews' meme. In this particular Orthodox-heavy New York congressional district, it seems as if Israel played a role, but the Jews we are talking about in this case represent the minority wing of American Jewry. I still predict that Obama will take 70 or so percent of the Jewish vote next year.
