Question: Will Rudy Giuliani’s outspoken support for Israel sway your vote should he be the GOP presidential nominee in 2008?

 

 


Yes. His support for Israel would certainly sway my vote, but in general he has built a good reputation for himself. He has a strong track record and has shown himself to be a man of his word.

Yes. I have always been a Giuliani supporter. He is pro-Jewish, pro-working class, and a supporter of the people. In contrast to Hillary Clinton, who kissed Arafat’s wife, Giuliani kicked Arafat out of a UN event at Lincoln Center. As a Holocaust survivor, I admire the man and appreciate his support for the Jewish people.

Yes. I am more inclined to vote for him because of his views on Israel. While none of the candidates are anti-Israel, Giuliani happens to be more outspoken about his support than the others. A president’s stand on Israel is very important to me as a voter and to the Jewish community. Israel is a strong ally of America and it’s a good idea for that to be reflected in our foreign policy.

Yes. He stands out among the other candidates as being more pro-Israel, and for me this is a very important issue. I don’t support an isolationist policy; we need to make sure Israel is protected and taken care of since the events that transpire there will eventually affect us here. And we have an obligation as Jews to make sure the evil that happened in the past doesn’t happen again; this applies to helping Israel as well as combating atrocities in other countries.
