Civil War Within AIPAC?

2012[The National Jewish Democratic Council turned on its fellow Jews for daring to jump ship in favor of Romney. Adelson's liable suit blows the fight right into the national limelight, revealing the internal split within AIPAC (SEE: Stop AIPAC! ; Romney Waxes Whimsical Over Jewish Economic "Vitality" Compared To "Stark Difference" of Palestinians).]
"The National Jewish Democratic Council is calling on Mitt Romney and other 2012 Republican candidates to stop accepting donations from billionaire Sheldon Adelson in the wake of reports that the GOP mega donor personally approved of prostitution at his Macau resorts.
The group, which aims to build Jewish support for Democrats at the federal and state levels of government, issued its charge in response to a seven-page allegation that Adelson allowed prostitution at his Macau casinos and was also aware of other illicit activity."[URL=""]NJDC Calls on Romney to Stop Accepting Adelson Donations

Sheldon Adelson, chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS), sued the National Jewish Democratic Council and its top officers for libel, saying the organization falsely claimed he approved of prostitution in his Macau casinos.
Adelson, a billionaire and top fundraiser for Republican Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, filed his $10 million suit today in Manhattan federal court. He claims the NJDC, its president,David Harris, and its chairman, Marc Stanley, "crossed the threshold from constitutionally protected speech to defamation of a public figure."
The suit is over an article that Adelson says was authored by Harris and posted on the NJDC website claiming Adelson approved of prostitution in his Macau casinos and urging Romney to cease accepting his donations. The article cites allegations made in a separate lawsuit by an employee of Sands China Ltd. (1928), Adelson says. Adelson denies the claims.
"We will not be bullied into submission," the NJDC said in an e-mailed statement. "Referencing mainstream press accounts examining the conduct of a public figure and his business ventures as we did is wholly appropriate."
On its website, the group says its goal is to win "Jewish support for Democrats at the federal and state levels of government."
The suit is Adelson v. Harris, 12-cv-6052, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

I can't see more than the neocon-variety Jews (maybe) going toward Romney and a Mormon.
