Israel is better off with the GOP than the Democrats

By Ted Belman

Sheldon Schorer, Counsel to Democrats Abroad Israel, argues The Democrats – good for Israel in 2008.

The centerpiece of Bush’s foreign policy, his war on terror, has been a disastrous failure. America has not lessened the threat of international terrorism, which has grown. American weakness – symbolized by troops mired in Afghanistan and Iraq – and the consequent loss of international political clout have had a devastating effect on Israel’s security, making it less secure today than it was during the Bill Clinton era.

In addition to emboldening Hizbullah and Hamas, America has failed to dissuade Iran from pursuing an aggressive program of nuclear weapons development.

On the other hand,

Obama said, “My view is that the United States’s special relationship with Israel obligates us to be helpful to them in the search for credible partners with whom they can make peace, while also supporting Israel in defending itself against enemies sworn to its destruction.”

There are no credible partners for peace. Give me a party that wants to end the “peace process” and I will vote for it. Give me a party that wants Israel to keep Judea and Samaria and I will vote for it.

The Republicans are more likely to support such a platform than are the Democrats.
