If you go here you can see how the Israeli newspaper Haaretz rates the U.S. Presidential candidates.
Notice how indistinguishable the candidates’ views are from one another when you get right down to it. (Not that that is anything unusual in American politics.) Can anyone offer an opinion as to why Hillary Clinton would favor moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and what significance that would have? Would this be about the proposal to divide Jerusalem between Israel and Palestine (and Israel’s unwillingness to do so)? Note John Kerry’s position! Huckaby, of course, has been to Israel with great regularity, as is true of many affluent American fundamentalist Christians. They will always defend the nation of Israel, no matter what, as a matter of their faith and commitment to their holy book.
McCain and Newt Gingrich are scary. Actually, most of the candidates’ views are scary. Barack Obama is, of course, the voice of inexperience.
Bottom line, Israel favors Republican candidates.
