Don’t miss this opportunity to explore Israel off the beaten track, feel the conflict first hand, understand the security issues and politic realities, and have an unforgettable trip!
In these times of unrest and violence, it is necessary to elect a commander-in-chief whose words we can trust. Mitt Romney, to my mind, is a much safer choice.
To be sure, no one should argue that Jews must support Romney just because he is more reliable on Israel. But neither should they dismiss him because they don’t agree with his every position. When the Jewish homeland is at stake, we must not let ourselves be fooled by Obama’s oratorical skills. Nor can we afford to ignore his poor track record on Israel.
Those who support Obama are asking the rest of us to trust a president who has yet to recognize Israel’s ancient capital, a promise he made in the last election.
So keep in mind Obama’s open microphone comments next time someone says you must take the president at his word. And ask yourself: Should we risk Israel’s security on his campaign rhetoric?
For Obama, the issue is political; for Israel, it’s existential – a matter of survival. JNS.org
Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, established the Adelson Family Foundation to support programs that benefit the state of Israel and the Jewish people, including Birthright Israel. The CEO and principal owner of the Las Vegas Sands Corp, Adelson has created and developed more than 50 different companies during a six-decade career in the U.S. and Asia as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist. In September, Forbes magazine listed him as the 12th-wealthiest American. In June, he gave the pro-Mitt Romney Super PAC $10 million.
