Why did Jews support FDR at least 85% when he was anti-Semitic and knew about Hitler and wouldn't even bomb train tracks to the camps??

    FDR didn't order the bombing of the tracks.  True, but that this was because of anti Semitism is wild speculation.  Maybe the camps weren't bombed out of purely military reason.  Most of, (all?), the camps were to the east of Germany, so the bombers would have had to fly across Germany facing flack on the way to the camp railroad tracks and on the way back.  I can think of two other reasons that didn't involve anti Semitism.
