Questions for Never Trump Friends of Israel

February 5, 2018 --

Would Hillary Clinton have recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Would her vice president have spoken to the Knesset in the capital of Jerusalem?

Would a speech by Clinton's vice president have promised that by the end of 2019, the U.S. embassy will be in Jerusalem? Would the Clinton vice president have vowed that "the full force of our might [will] drive radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the Earth"?

Would the Clinton vice president declared, flatly, that Iran will not get nuclear weapons? Would a Clinton vice president have referred to the Jewish state as "an inspiration to the world?

Indeed, do you agree with Vice President Pence who, in his Knesset speech, said that President Trump, in recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel, "righted a 70-year wrong," or do you agree with The New York Times editorial assertion, January 25, that President Trump has "displeased many more" American Jews by his action on Jerusalem?
