    Via the Blaze, someone on Twitter described this as Graham’s YOLO moment. This speech, to the Republican Jewish Coalition, was supposed to be about foreign policy but Cruz went on before him and I guess Grahamnesty had finally had his fill of the “bold colors, not pale pastels” pitch. He got into the race expecting to be hawkish artillery against the offensive from Rand Paul and libertarians. That offensive never happened and he’s been floating through the campaign ever since, sporadically attacking Trump, sometimes grumbling about Cruz, mostly complaining that no matter what we’re doing to damage our international enemies,...

    "Why deny it?" Asked during a presidential forum on Thursday to address critics who point out that he is, like Barack Obama, a first term U.S. senator with no foreign policy experience, Ted Cruz explained that he could do so in two ways.The rising GOP primary candidate first noted that he finds it odd when reporters bring up his supposed similarity to Obama as though it is a negative. "When the media asks, 'Gosh, aren't you like Barack Obama?' My reaction to reports is, 'I thought you thought that was a good thing,'" he said. "Last I checked he won...

    RJC Demands Obama stop demonizing Jews for opposing the Iran deal. Last week President Obama held a conference call with interested Americans, seeking to directly sell them on the nuclear deal the U.S. and its P5+1 partners made with Iran. Many Jews who listened on the call were taken aback by what they heard as coded anti-Semitic language being used by the President to attack those who are critical of the deal. On Friday, the Republican Jewish Coalition issued a statement demanding that Obama stop demonizing the critics of the Iran deal with code words for Jews. Matt Brooks, the...

    Sadly, the America alliance with Israel has never been more imperiled than it is today, the U.S. senator from Texas said, speaking before the spring meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition. ---- The gathering is known as the Sheldon Adelson primary because of the role he plays in boosting GOP candidates. In 2012, Adelson donated more than $100 million to Republican candidates, including Newt Gingrich before he dropped out of the White House race and Mitt Romney, the eventual GOP presidential nominee. Cruz appeared to excite the crowd more than the other speakers. He noted that he called for Secretary...

    By Israel News Agency StaffWashington, D.C. October 28, 2014 The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) responded to several troubling expressions of hostility toward Israel coming from the Obama administration in recent days. These included a snub towards Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon. The White House denied him meetings with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Jeffrey Goldberg, diplomatic correspondent for The Atlantic, reported today that he recently spoke to a senior Obama administration official about, the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) strongly on Tuesday criticized U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for placing the bulk of the blame on Israel for the stalled peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA). Kerry, who spoke before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, Israel didn't release the Palestinian prisoners on the day they were supposed to be freed, and another day passed, and another day, and then another 700 settlement units were announced in Jerusalem, and poofthat was sort of the moment. In response, RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said, After almost nine months of negotiations, during which Israel...

    The debate over whether to bomb Syrian military facilities and weapons installations is creating some strange bedfellows. Among them: President Obama and Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. On Tuesday, the Republican Jewish Coalition, which counts Adelson as a donor and a board member, told its members to urge Congress to authorize a strike in Syria. A spokesman for Adelson, a top backer of pro-Israel causes, told Bloomberg News that the gambling mogul supported the coalition's positionand thus Obama'son Syria. Obama and Adelson are far from ideological allies. Adelson reportedly spent upwards of $150 million, in disclosed and dark money,...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) announced its opposition to the potential appointment of former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as Secretary of Defense, citing a long list of actions Hagel has taken that raise alarms about his failure to support Israel. Hagel is said to be the leading contender to replace Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who is expected to step down early next year. The RJC outlined a number of instances highlighting Hagels anti-Israel record: In August 2006, Hagel was one of only 12 Senators who refused to write the EU asking them to declare Hizbullah a terrorist organization; In October...

    I was a big Obama supporter. I had a fundraiser in my home, gave money to his campaign. I really believed in him and believed in what he stood for. When he gave the speech about the 67 borders, it was nothing that had come up in his campaign originally. That really changed my mind about him. When he had the prime minister of Israel, [Benjamin] Netanyahu, to the White Househe was disrespectful to him to the point that Id never seen.

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is launching a $6.5 million campaign to convince Jewish voters among the most loyal segments of the Democratic coalition that it is okay to vote against President Obama because of his stand on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian issue. The campaign is aimed at key Jewish areas in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, where the RNC hopes to swing just enough votes to tip those states in Mitt Romneys electoral vote column....>> The Bottom Line This particular ad is very effective because Goldstein appears to be talking from his heart.

Despite that political history, Ashe in recent years has found herself attending events sponsored by he Chicago Chapter of the Republican Jewish Coalition after becoming more and more conservative as I read more and get perspectives on the...

    Its no great secret that the leaders of local Jewish organizations are Democrats and fervent supporters of the party. There has been so much controversy over this relationship recently that the only way to clear the air would be to urge Jewish leaders to publicly declare their political affiliations. Then their congregations and organizational members would at least have a better idea of what's motivating these leaders sermons or organizational policies. Many members of synagogues and Jewish groups assume that their leaders are politically neutral and have only the interests of Israel and Jews at the top of their agendas....

It is an honor to be with you today and to share my thoughts on faith, foreign policy and the free State of Israel. It is great to see so many friends with the Republican Jewish Coalitionincluding two vital supporters, Dr. Jeffrey Feingold and Kirk Blalock. As we gather today, I am struck by the coincidence that two of the American citizens being unlawfully detained abroad today are Jewish: Alan Gross in Cuba, and Warren Weinstein by al Qaida in Pakistan. In both cases...
