Have I been watching the same debates as you?

Israel is explicitly discussed in many debates.

Many candidates have said that Iran must be stopped, by the United States, because they present a threat to Israel.

Do you dispute this?

Some Conservatives will not cut one dollar from the defense budget if it means that Israel could possibly be put at greater risk.

That’s the way it is.

There’s a foreign policy debate tonight.

Do you think that any candidate will mention a threat to Israel as a justification for any of their proposals?

If they don’t, it will signal a shift in their thinking on this matter.

And that’s fine. There are constituencies within the Republican Party for whom the security of Israel is the top priority.

Personally, I’m all about cuts. We have a huge deficit, we spend way too much money, and we have to find ways to cut spending to avoid an economic collapse. But that’s just my own personal opinion.

Yeah. The Dims would love to throw them under the bus.

I am about defending Israel too.

And Taiwan.
And putting those anti-missiles in Poland.
And beefing up India against China and Pakistan.
And defending Japan against encroachments.
And Iraqi Freedom.
And killing Taliban in Afghanistan.
And Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.
And the "International" Space Station.
And Traquility Base etc.

The United States is hegemon or someone else is and that would be bad for America anywhere.
And history shows that once an empire begins to withdraw, the momentum of defeat and collapse is hard to stop.

If you want to withdraw only from Israel, then, yes, you are an anti-semite.

If you want to withdraw from most or all of them, then you are anti-American.
