Don’t Risk Israel’s Security On Obama’s Words

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.

  1. Americans who care about Israel and Americans who care about America, should not vote to re-elect President Obama.

    Mr. Adelson presents many facts that prove that President Obama really cannot.
    be trusted in this area.

    There is also the recent statement of Senator Dianne Feinstein, that she would not support a strike against Iran under any circumstance.

    A nuclear Iran is a certainty under a new Obama administration.

    I've been reading about the Obama campaign's financial advantage – that Romney has had to cut back on TV ads in many important markets while Obama has flooded those markets with attack ads. I thought Mr. Adelson was going to donate $100 million to the Romney campaign? If so, the time is now!

  4. Sheldon Adelson has donated ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS [$100,000,000] to the Romney campaign, in an effort to avoid paying TWO BILLION DOLLARS [$2,000,000,000] in taxes, if Obama is elected. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/11/sheldon-adelson-2-billion-tax-cut-mitt-romney_n_1873683.html

    Did you not read the article? To date, the Adelsons have only donated $10 million to the Romney campaign. And your assumption that Sheldon Adelson would support Romney to save on taxes is total bull****. He's supporting Romney because Obama is an Islamic terrorist bent on destroying Israel and America.

  6. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. It's always good to hear a sane, well thought through, thoroughly researched opinion.

“Americans who support Israel should take the president at his word.” So wrote Haim Saban recently in The New York Times, claiming President Obama was fully committed to the Jewish state.

But is that true? Should we take Obama at his word?

No, not when Israel confronts the threat of a nuclear Iran.
