  1. This proves Romney understands what issues Israel has to deal with. Obama just sweeps them under the rug, long with nuclear Iran, and tells Israel to accept it anyway.

  2. The simmering religious in the Middle East may eventually destroy civilization. Mitt “Cyborg” Romney stirs it up because he is an agent of the Mormon Church. To gain an existential understanding of the cult that produced Mitt "Cyborg" Romney, and to get your socks scared off, read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew, available in paperback and ebook at:

    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=The+Assassination+of+Spiro+Agnew

    Its unwilling, part-Mexican Mormon assassin dramatizes the Mormon superiority complex, manifesting it as racism, sexism, jingoism and an anti-federal government temperament. His research in the new library reveals ominous similarities between Islam and Mormonism. The spiritual power behind the cult, which is not the Holy Ghost, acts out.

    “With a clarity of language and vision unsurpassed in contemporary American prose, Steven Janiszewski's Assassination of Spiro Agnew takes us into a U.S. mazed with madness and Mormonism and all things Utah, a U.S. that was then and still is. Do we need a novel, even as brilliant as this one, about a young man on a divine mission to assassinate the Vice President because he is too liberal? Yes, now more than ever. Readers, welcome to a masterpiece.”.

    Read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew.
    Mr. Rushdie would enjoy its post-modern style as much as he would be abhorred by the Mormon experience.

  3. This proves that Romney is unwilling to take the time or has no interest in helping to bring peace to the middle east. As I have said here before, Obama will take 70% of the Jewish vote and be reelected.

  4. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    What a relief to hear someone speak the obvious truth – anyone who thinks the Arabs will accept a demilitarized state any time in the next few decades, at least, are either hopelessly, aggressively naive, or lying- either way they should not be involved with making decisions about the Middle East. Obama will undoubtedly receive the majority of the American Jewish vote, but that says a lot about those Jews, and it isn't that they consider Israel's security a priority when they vote.

  5. About moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, Obama say "it's up to the negotiations between the parties", Romney would say "cannot, it's a security issue".

  6. Jacek Gruszczynski says:

    bingo

  7. Stephen Asbel says:

    This is a guy who was for a lot of things before he was against them and against them before he was for them – his 180 degree change of view on abortion being one such example. The words in this statement are fine but we have no idea whether he agrees with what he is saying or not. With Romney it seems like he will say whatever will please the people to whom he is speaking. If he was speaking to a bunch of rich Arab donors, he would tell them that he feels terrible about the plight of Arab Palestinians and that they need a state. This is not to say that Obama does not go against things he says but we are talking about Romney here. This appears to be nothing more than pandering and if he is elected, this position like all the pledges from prior presidents of both parties to move the US embassy to Jerusalem will go out the window due to practical imperatives.

  8. Heather Dow says:

    Too bad for the US if Onama gets reelected. Too bad for Medicare, unborn babies, Israel and more.

  9. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    He did not pledge to move the US Embassy, unlike so many other presidents pledged, and then did not move them. My guess is, Stephen, that he does not have a bunch of rich Arab donors, unlike the other man running for president, and that man's self-proclaimed "blocking back," J Street.

  10. Heather, it is Ryan/Romney who plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program. Abortion is the law of the land. Romney cares no more for Israel than he does for the 47% he claims to be moochers. And yes, Obama WILL be reelected, and WILL get 70% of the Jewish vote.

  11. Another unauthenticated slur from "journalist" LLM? With absolutely no evidence, you assert Obama has a "bunch of rich arab donors." Please supply the evidence or rescind this outrageous slur.

  12. And yes, as an American Jew I vote based on the candidates' positions on a number of American Issues and American security, as well as issues about Israel. I assume that when people vote in Israel that American security is not a priority, nor should it be.

  13. Reina M Avila says:

    @ Micheal Blum: Only a true prophet of Hashem can fortell the future with 100 % accuracy so you are either a prophet, speaking for Hashem who does not nor cannot lie, or you are a false prophet. Or, you are practicing divinity which is a sin. Why not consider that whatever happens is G*d's will and not yours.

  14. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    oh, Michael, didn't you learn from our last exchange? As I recall, you had to retract each of your claims that I was incorrect. But more importantly, why is it a slur to suggest that rich Arabs donate to President Obama? Are you suggesting there is a problem for rich Arabs to donate to whomever they want? And isn't that what Stephen suggested about Romney? As he made clear, the only problem with it would be if either candidate made one statement to a group of rich Jews and then made a completely contradictory statement to rich Arabs. That is why I made the point about J Street, which was because they had originally claimed all their donors were from Jewish Americans and then…oops, their donor reports showed non-Jews, non-Americans and even groups opposed to Israel were donors.

  15. Glenn Becker says:

    Romney, another Republican Vietnam chicken hawk, also appears to be another patsy for the neocons, like Bush. His ignorance is stunning. He would franchise US policy to Netanyahu. Fortunately he won't get the chance.

  16. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Let's thank Mother Jones for publicizing this! Now I know that Romney is on the right side!

  17. Stephanie Kienzle says:

    The more I learn about him the more I like him.

  18. Mike Epstein says:

    Absolutely. I'm very pleased by what I've heard.

  19. Reina: I am making a PREDICTION. I am certainly NOT claiming to be a prophet, nor am I assuming to usurp Hashem. Having said that, I stand by my PREDICTION.

  20. Laurie _ You apparently consider it a bad thing to accept donations from rich Arabs. (NB: your original post contrasting your favored candidate to mine.) More to the point here, however, is your continued assertion of facts without evidence. What EVIDENCE do you have to support your ASSERTION that Obama has a "bunch of rich Arab donors"? If you have no EVIDENCE, please let us know that your ASSERTION is an OPINION, not a FACT. Thank you.

    And, lest you accuse me of misquoting you, here is what you said: "My guess is, Stephen, that he does not have a bunch of rich Arab donors, unlike the other man running for president, and that man's self-proclaimed "blocking back," J Street."

  21. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    Michael, it isn't hard to find those people. Just one example is Imaad Zuberi. Again, there's nothing wrong with people giving to, and raising money for, their preferred candidates, the issue is whether they say opposite things to groups with opposite interests. But going forward I don't think it's useful to do your research for you. If you don't like what I say, that's fine. Learning how to do your own research could be very exciting for you and then perhaps you can write your own articles. I look forward to that.

  22. I do not ask you to do my "research" for me, Laurie, but I do ask that you , as a responsible journalist, state the facts upon which you base your assertions. As to Mr. Zuberi, you are mistaken. He is a Pakistani American. Last I looked, Pakistan is definitely in South Asia. Contrary to your baseless assertion, he is neither an Arab nor an Arab American. Your inattention to such details deeply undercuts your credibility. Care to try again?

  23. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    And he belongs to the Saudi Arabian Business and Professional Network because….? But this really will be my last reply to you. And just a by the by, it does not help your credibility when you cannot spell correctly the name next to the comments to which you are responding.

  24. Laurie- I apologize for spelling your name wrong.

  25. He just wants the title, power and influence. But work? Not for him!

  26. Mr. Blum, what does a Palestinian state have to do with peace in the Middle East? The Arabs were given a state in 1947 what did that lead to? Mah Nishtana Halaylah Hazeh?
