Race For The White House (I)

I fear we will come to rue the day Israel didn’t seize the opportunity for peace President Obama presented over the past few years. Obama enjoys the trust of the Arab world well beyond any Republican, including Mitt Romney, and could have served as an honest broker these past three and a half years if only Israel had let him.

Mitt Romney may make tough statements, but the Palestinians and the rest of the Arab world don’t have any confidence in him and that is crucial.

Race For The White House (II)

I was outraged by the ADL’s Abraham Foxman’s comment as quoted in your front page news story last week (“Romney’s Remarks on Peace Prospects Draw Muted Response from Jewish Groups”).

Foxman was critical of Mitt Romney’s suggestion that at the present time the cause of peace in the Middle East would best be served if we were to “kick the ball down the field.” Foxman responded: “To let it fester is not in the best interests of Israel.”

I wonder what planet Foxman is living on. The only hope Israel has is Mitt Romney in the White House. It never fails: every four years Foxman runs interference for the Democratic presidential candidate.

Race For The White House (III)

Reader George Rubin’s assessment (Letters, Sept. 28) that two-thirds of Jews will be voting for “a Democratic Party that no longer exists” was loudly confirmed by the farce at the Democratic National Convention when the motion to re-insert Jerusalem as Israel’s capital into the platform was met with a vocal “no” majority (even though Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared the motion passed by a phantom two-thirds vote).

The Democratic Party has indeed been hijacked by cadres of radical leftists whose fealty to Jews and Israel is non-existent and the two-thirds of Jews who will be voting for Obama are blind to this reality.

Race For The White House (IV)

On Sept. 11, Islamic terrorists killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens along with three other Americans at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Yet there has been no sign of any genuine outrage on the part of the Obama administration.

Instead, President Obama callously dismissed this atrocious event – along with the recent wave of violent anti-American Muslim demonstrations – as simply being a “bump in the road.”

A U.S. ambassador has been viciously slain, and all our president can say about this heinous act is that it is “a bump in the road”? Indeed, instead of condemning this terrorist attack in the strongest words, it seems Obama has been too busy engaging in damage control in an effort to deflect the fact that these events demonstrate just how much of a failure his policy of accommodation, appeasement and apology toward the Muslim world has been.

Perhaps a different U.S. president would have gone on national television to express in no uncertain terms his outrage over the incident. Most likely he would have demanded the resignation of those State Department officials responsible for the security of our ambassadors in the Middle East and North Africa. He would have pledged to hunt down the murderers of our ambassador.

In the final analysis, what Americans need is a president who is unafraid of standing up for our principles rather than one who apologizes for them.

Race For The White House (V)

Mitt Romney is the same as Barack Obama, at least based on their past actions. Despite this, if we think clearly and rationally, carefully examining the evidence, we will conclude that we need to vote for Romney. There are many reasons, each one by itself sufficient, to reject a second term for Obama. Here are just a few:

Scores of people are dead as a result of the Fast and Furious scandal. Congress is contemplating suggesting the attorney general of the United States resign. The American voter should kick Obama out of office because of what we already know about this scandal.

In addition, the American deaths in Libya, along with the UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s lies, are full justification for the American people to vote Obama out of office.
