Ramaswamy is not hung up on the Palestinian cause.

By Ted Belman

In Russel Band’s interview of Wamaswamy, he said

“Come 2028, that additional aid won’t be necessary in order to still have the kind of stability that we’d actually have in the Middle East by having Israel more integrated in with its partners,”

Many Israelis including myself have said this.

While Ramaswamy admitted that the close relationship between the US and Israel had benefited both countries, he added: “There’s no North Star commitment to any one country, other than the United States of America,”

I have no problem with this also. Its in America’s interest work together with Israel for mutual benefit. We are not looking for favours.

He also said that he would be seeking to build on President Trump’s record of deal-making in the middle east, adding: “I want to go even further than Trump on the Abraham Accords. As president, I want to achieve the Abraham Accords 2.0 and bring in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Indonesia,” he said. “It would be good for everyone.”

Last month, Ramaswamy also told JNS that he wants to reach a point where other Middle Eastern countries can normalize relations with Israel formally irrespective of a signed document with the Palestinians.

“I want to get these countries past the Palestinian situation being a hold-up to talks of a broader peace,” he said.

All in all , I don’t see a problem here.

  1. Only one candidate, Vivek Ramaswamy, publicly rejected efforts to punish schools or individual students for anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian statements.

    “Colleges are spaces for students to experiment with ideas & sometimes kids join clubs that endorse boneheadedly wrong ideas,” he wrote on X this month in response to an uproar over a letter from student groups at Harvard that held “the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence.”
