    Poll shows Israelis give mixed marks on Trump and Hillary, believe next president will be better for Israel than Obama. While neither party has settled on a nominee, and with the Republican nomination process still very much in the air, Israelis are certain about one thing - the next President of the United States cannot be worse than Barack Obama. According to a TNS Teleseker poll publicized on Sunday, Israelis are generally optimistic that President Obama's successor will be better for Israel than the incumbent, whose pursuit of the Iran nuclear deal and diplomatic dust-ups with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin...

    Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton emphasized her pro-Israel credentials during an interview Saturday with the New York Daily News, looking to capitalize on recent missteps by rival Bernie Sanders, whose faux pas on the 2014 Gaza war has alienated some Jewish backers. Clinton sat down with the paper’s editorial board for an extended interview which was released on Monday. Speaking on a variety of issues both foreign and domestic, the former Secretary of State staked out hawkish positions on the war on terror and support for Israel, distinguishing herself both from Sanders and her former boss, President Obama. Regarding terrorism, Clinton...

    Good evening. I speak to you today as a lifelong supporter and true friend of Israel. I am a newcomer to politics but not to backing the Jewish state. In late 2001, weeks after the attacks on New York City and Washington - attacks perpetrated by Islamic fundamentalists, Mayor Giuliani visited Israel to show solidarity with terror victims. I sent him in my plane because I backed the mission 100%. In Spring 2004, at the height of violence in the Gaza Strip, I was the Grand Marshal of the 40th Salute to Israel Parade, the largest single gathering in support...

The news came Thursday from Columbia’s Student Governing Board (SGB), nearly 48 hours after it held a special meeting to discuss Pinocchio’s fate. “SGB decided not to approve it,” Rudy Rochman, a co-founder of the Columbia chapter of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), told The Algemeiner. “We will put the rest of our display back up, without the Pinocchio.” When The Algemeiner asked Rochman whether SGB had given a reason for...

    The betting markets on the American primary elections show an 87% probability that Hillary Clinton will head the Democratic ticket and a 76% probability that Donald Trump will lead the Republicans. Between the two, Trump is the pro-Israel candidate. First, his daughter Ivanka is an observant Orthodox Jew after her conversion and marriage to Jared Kushner, the scion of a prominent family of Jewish philanthropists. Second, and most decisive, Trump feels no obligation to win favor among Muslims, proposing a temporary ban against any Muslim entering the United States. Hillary Clinton, by contrast, surrounded herself with advisers openly hostile to...

"Since entering the Senate, Ted Cruz has made support of US-Israel relations a priority," Dr. Chouake said in a statement obtained exclusively by Jewish Insider.

The ads are sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), also known as Stop Islamization of American, and they describe the Israel-Palestinian conflict as a war between the "civilized man and the savage." The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) initially rejected the AFDI ads, asserting they could be construed as "demeaning or disparaging" to Palestinian Arabs and Muslims. ...

    No Senate Democrats block measure backing Bibi’s speechThe Senate on Thursday unanimously passed a resolution welcoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to America and endorsing his speech before a joint session of Congress. Critics of the Obama administration view the unanimous approval as a rebuke to the White House and Democrats, who have vowed to boycott Netanyahu’s address and work to counter his warnings about the dangers of a nuclear Iran. No Senate Democrats sponsored the measure, which attracted 50 Republican cosponsors. However, none attempted to block its passage, signaling that support for Israel and Netanyahu’s message has outweighed a pressure...

    The blatant partiality of the United States in favor of Israel has already turned the words “peace process” into a bitter joke. Over many decades, American indulgence of Israel has blighted prospects of any resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians. Consequently, occupation has been entrenched and Israeli colonization of the West Bank and East Jerusalem has metastasized, going from under 200,000 illegal settlers in 1991 to over 600,000 today. This partiality only increases when Israel goes to war. By guaranteeing Israel impunity in its military actions, the United States has contributed massively to the bloodshed in Gaza in recent...

    The late conservative sociologist and evangelical Christian, James Q. Wilson, made an interesting observation on the manner in which Blacks, Jews, and Evangelicals relate to one another. Here is his fascinating 2008 article: http://www.city-journal.org/2008/18_1_evangelicals.html Here is a summary of his article. White Evangelical Christians are the strongest supporters of Israel in America, and their support for Israel comes from their religious beliefs that Israel is a fulfillment of scripture. But most American Jews have never been great fans of evangelicals, despite great efforts on the part of evangelicals to reach out to Jews. Jews are the one white ethnic group,...

After backing Hillary Clinton in 2008–in opposition to his sister, Penny Pritzker–J.B. helped raise money for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

He has served on AIPAC’s national board, regularly chairs AIPAC events in Chicago, and attends the organization’s annual Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. Given his devotion to a strong U.S.-Israel alliance, it is extraordinary to discover that Pritzker also...

    WASHINGTON (JTA) – To some conservative Jews, Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make an excellent presidential candidate. He’s been to Israel more than any other candidate already in the field and has said he loves it. And Perry creates jobs. But other Jewish conservatives seeking the anti-Obama candidate look at the three-term governor and see something arresting: He believes he’s on a mission from God. Perry has nonplussed longtime Jewish supporters by claiming that he has been “called” to the presidency and by hosting a prayer rally this month that appealed to Jesus to save America.

    Whose Voice Shall Speak for Israel? by Norma Zager and Ari Bussel “There is no good in arguing with the inevitable. The only argument available with an east wind is to put on your overcoat.” James Russell Lowell In our last postcard (“Jews Speaking Civilly to One Another?”) I bemoaned the fact Jewish people cannot agree, even about those things that speak to their own survival. I even sought wisdom from my Rabbi, and while he saw clearly through to the crux of the issue, sadly, he could offer no definitive solution to the dilemma. One reader of the article...

    Text of Pamela Geller's remarks at Pro-Israel Rally, NYC April 25, 2010 First of all, I want to thank my Yid Army for showing up. I love my Yid Army! Thank you so much for coming out in the rain. And thank you, Beth, for putting this together. I think it’s appropriate that it’s raining. There’s a reason why it’s raining. For the first time in American history, we have an anti-Israel president. His premise is false. The narrative is false. The Islamization of the narrative must stop. (Cheers) It must stop with the truth. And truth is the new...

    A new evangelical film, “With God on Our Side,” is coming out this month in an attempt to persuade pro Israel Christians to champion the Palestinian cause. Porter Speakman, the movie’s producer, has explained that it “takes a look at the theology of Christian Zionism, which teaches that… the Jews are G-d’s chosen people [and] have a divine right to the land of Israel… This film demonstrates that there is a biblical alternative for Christians who want to love and support the people of Israel, a theology that doesn’t favor one people group over another but instead promotes peace and...

    The Lid/Various ^ | 3/15/2010 | The Lid
    During the past few days, the Obama administration has been overreacting to Israel's approval of new housing in a northern Jerusalem Jewish neighborhood. The only thing wrong with Israel's announcement was the timing, which even the most ardent Israel supporter would call plain dumb. Though it was not done to embarrass the SCHMOTUS Joe Biden, a task he masters on his own, the timing was embarrassing not only for the SCHMOTUS Joe Biden, but for Bibi Netanyahu Israel's Prime minister who was not aware of the announcement before it was made (yes Israeli politics are very weird).

    Jewish Journal ^ | 2/6/10 | Tom Tugend
    Israel may have become a punching bag for much of the world, but 50 million Americans back the Jewish state 100 percent, no ifs, buts or maybes. As portrayed in the striking documentary “Waiting for Armageddon,” these supporters are Christian Evangelicals who are neither rural hicks nor ranting fanatics. What they hold in common is an unshakeable faith that every inch of Israel/Palestine belongs to the Jews. “They want the Muslims to be evicted by the Jews, the Jews to rebuild the Temple of Solomon and then Christ to return and trump everyone,” one analyst explains in the film. The...
