Reader comment on item: Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: Romney Is Not the Ideal Candidate for the U.S. and Its Ally Israel

Submitted by Anon (United States), Aug 12, 2012 at 02:42

Rex, that was a great post. I am an atheist living in the US but I have also spent a fair amount of time living in and traveling around Israel. The first thing that struck me about people in Israel is just how different American Jews are from Israeli Jews. There are many awesome people in Israel too but can anybody imagine American Jews assaulting African immigrants in New York like what happened in Tel Aviv? Or American Jews vandalizing a mosque in the US? It is quite sad to see the excitement generated by the use of "God Bless xyz country" slogans by Romney. Talk is cheap, I bet with a few hundred million dollars one could make any Presidential candidate say anything.
