Barack Obama gained the support of one of the Jewish world’s most prominent leaders Friday, when Canadian philanthropist Edgar M. Bronfman gave the Democratic presidential candidate his endorsement.
In a column on the Huffingtonpost, Bronfman asserted that Obama is the candidate who will act in the best interest of Israel. Of Obama’s Republican rival, the philanthropist said: “As an American Jew who loves Israel, I cannot support John McCain.”
Bronfman, a former head of the World Jewish Congress, wrote in the piece titled “Israel’s Best Interest is a Morally Strong America” that an honest broker was needed to push Israelis and Palestinians toward a two-state solution.
Incredible. Bronfman obviously wanted to do for America what he did for Universal Studio.
