‘I Will Be Reliable In Supporting Israel’: An Interview with Councilman Erik Dilan

Erik-Dilan-060812

Should American policy favor Israel’s retaining the major Jewish population centers in settlements in the West Bank?

Israel is a sovereign country and only Israel has the right to decide what policy it wishes to pursue when it comes to her security.

Do you believe American policy should be to support Israel retaining all of Jerusalem as its undivided capital?

Jerusalem has been the focal point of the hopes and prayers of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years. It became the capital of Israel almost 2,500 years before Columbus discovered America. I believe that the United City of Jerusalem must remain the eternal capital of Israel. And if we Americans consider Washington DC as our capital because the U.S. Congress and our president reside there, then Jerusalem, where the Knesset and Israel’s prime minister are located, should be its capital and we should move our embassy there.

Amazingly, my opponent did not sign on to any Jerusalem letters and chose not to vote on the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act.

Do you believe that parochial schools students and their parents are entitled to the same assistance for the secular portion of their education as public school students and their parents?

Government has an obligation to ensure that all school children have access to a first rate education, be it public or private school.

What is your position on tuition vouchers generally? Tuition Tax credits?

While I believe vouchers are not realistic at this time, government must understand the intense burden placed on tuition-paying parents and it is important to find creative and realistic solutions. To that end, I support tuition tax credits or some other kind of reimbursement program that offers parents financial relief. The education of all of our students is a top priority for me and I am committed to helping public and private school students achieve education excellence.

  1. If you love Israel so much, kindly move there.

    No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot serve the American people.

    A friend to Israel is no friend of America.

    America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third.

  2. It is Israel’s decision how it will proceed on its settlement policy.

    Awesome, stop all aid then.

  3. Sorry, darling Mike Rivero, but(t) the U. S. Constitution already asks istself to do exclusive "(L)aw" (hear the crowds roar, is all!) when they in fact tell Christians to "STUFF IT"! about their (generic religion, RIGHT?) unwillingness to accuse or judge another on a "USA" (gang-violence, duh. John 8:7..). The word "jewry" is the rabble, know-nothings, why need them… That goes against Jesus' words at John 8:7 about them "jewries"/"juries", same word, go look

  4. Rick Bauer says:

    Hey Dilan, what about the United States? How about serving We the People?

  5. " ..annot serv two masters at once.. ".. Ok, who's doing charity?

  6. Rick Bauer says:

    Uh, what?

  7. Rick Bauer says:

    Sorry there is no "love" button, or I would have hit that, too!

  8. " .. cannot serve two masters at once" .. .. OK who's doing chatity?

  9. .. ".. cannot serve two masters at once" .. OK, who's doing charity!?

  10. Allah the almighty has prohibited Muslims to enter into the Judea-Christian alliance, i.e. the Zionist's and we have the fools in Washington proudly supporting the Zionist state of Israel, staging terror attacks worldwide and gearing up for thermal nuclear war.

  11. They will never have their new world order, the final victory will be for the Muslim's, don't believe it? Just wait & see

  12. Thad Potter says:

    I'm sure israel will be very alone in the near future, and will loose out on all that american money because peopl with nukes arnt elegable for american assistance when they don't adhear to nuclear regulations as in not joining.

  13. Thad Potter says:

    yes i agree, anyone in goverment that kisses israels ass should be held for treason , good hangings used to keep politicians honest, so we need rid our selves of israel in our whitehouse ,like get out aipac and supporters mitt romney under cover mosaad not so undercover anymore.

  14. Gary Jones says:

    Dear Israel, don't trust the guy. prostitutes are neither "reliable", nor "solid". He will sell you on his first opportunity just as readily as he just sold out his own country.

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining to young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
