Well, Kerry is working getting a display in the PLO Victory Museum in his honor, that's all. THE RECORD MATTERS!

There is a newspaper based in NYC called "The Jewish Press". It is an orthodox publication.

If Kerry gets elected, we better learn which way is Mecca, so we'll know where to face five times a day.

Senator Kerry has spoken of former president Jimmy Carter and former secretary of state James Baker — as his choice for emissaries to the Middle East. He has also retained as advisers many of Bill Clinton’s discredited Oslo architects and others.
Kerry told an audience at an Anti-Defamation League dinner that he wanted to be an "honest broker" in the Middle East, despite all the political baggage that phrase has assumed and as if there were a moral equivalence between Israel and Palestinian terrorists. Or that Mr. Kerry told an Arab group that the Israeli defense wall — which has sharply curtailed the murder of Israelis — was an "impediment" to peace in the region and was "provocative and counterproductive."

Kerry also called Yasir Arafat a "statesman" and a "role model." He has said that we must "look to Chairman Arafat to exert much greater leadership." On "Face the Nation," he said the Israel-Palestinian conflict is "an extraordinarily complicated, incredibly deep-rooted problem… Arafat has forces around him, underneath, close by him that don’t want peace, that are working against what he is doing."

In short, Arafat, according to Kerry, is not the problem — some around him are. Kerry also stated on "Meet the Press" that "Israel’s presence [in Gaza and the West Bank that] puts Israel in difficult circumstances and obviously creates an enormous handle for Osama bin Laden for all the radicals and extremists to hand on to."
Kerry; `We need to engage more directly and more respectfully with Islam, with that state of Islam, with religious leaders, mullahs, imams, clerics, in a way that proves this is not a clash with the British and the Americans and the old forces they remember from the old days, `and that’s all about your diplomacy.`

Has Michigan actually flipped that convincingly to Bush?

Just a couple of polls giving Bush about a 3-pt lead

Thanks for this ping.

This is one of the absolute best articles I have read in a long while on the subject. Krauthammer lays out the potential dangers ahead for Israel and the U.S. in the most direct way yet. I think he outlined the situation correctly.

GWB must be re-elected.

I wonder if Kerry's position on Israel has anything to do with this supposed Monday surprise.

Some JINO's would say that liberalism is their relegion. I actually think that the jewish vote will surprise people in their support for Bush. I predict 35%-40%. That would double the 20% that supported him in 2000.
