Who's better for Israel?
The number one issue for me above all in the upcoming presidential elections is the level support for Israel. This might make me anti-American is some peoples eyes like the militant liberal Mobius, but I don’t particularly give a shit.
Dubya we already know is great for Israel most of the time. 1. He got rid of Saddam. Saddam was one of the largest benefactors of suicide bombers, and has always been one of Israel’s biggest threats. 2. The Bush administration has basically given the green light to Israel’s assasinations of terrorist leaders. 3. Bush supports Israel’s separation fence from the arabs.
Kerry on the other hand I’m not to sure about. I would really like to believe him, because I like some of things he has to say in regards to Israel. The problem is when he is talking to the arabs, his stance suddenly changes.
On the subject of Israel’s separation fence, (you know, that large wall along Israel’s border that has basically stopped all suicide bombers from getting through.) Kerry said he was disturbed by Israel’s separation fence. “We do not need another barrier to peace,” he said and called for “two nations living as peaceful neighbors.” The speech represented somewhat of a breakthrough among some Arab Americans, some of whom had begun shying away from Kerry when he attacked Dean’s call for an evenhanded policy in the Middle East. Well Kerry, looks like you managed to gather some arab support.
In a position paper outlining his stance on Israel, Kerry is now seeking to correct that impression: "The security fence is a legitimate act of self-defense erected in response to the wave of terror attacks against Israeli citizens."
Which is it asshole?
On the subject of yasser arafat, John Kerry called terrorist leader Yasser Arafat a "role model" and a "statesman" in a 1997 book "that Kerry cites as proof of his own foresight about foreign policy". Now…… "Yasser Arafat is a failed leader and unfit partner for peace" and called for "his total isolation." He thereby aligned himself with Bush administration policy, and in contrast to former president Bill Clinton, who recently stated that despite his disappointment with Arafat, negotiations should be conducted with him.
Whether he sounds like an idiot when he talks or not, I at least know where Bush stands.
