GOP candidates duke it out on foreign policy, united in support for Israel

Thursday, September 17, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Republican presidential candidates sparred Wednesday evening over foreign policy, especially the future of the nuclear deal with Iran and the legacy of the war in Iraq. But in a debate that at times descended into personal attacks, candidates largely seemed to share complete disdain for President Barack Obama's diplomatic legacy — and passionate support for Israel.

"I will not shake hands with, I will not meet with, and I will not agree to anything with a country that says death to us and death to Israel and holds our hostages while we sign agreements with them," New Jersey Governor Chris Christie proclaimed in reference to Iran. He added that he would lead "an America that will be strong and resolute, and will once again be able to stick out its chest and say, 'We truly are the greatest nation in the world, because we live our lives that way, each and every day.'"

Senator Marco Rubio, who appeared decisive in addressing foreign policy questions throughout the debate, said that, if he is elected, "our Air Force One will fly, first and foremost, to our allies, in Israel, in South Korea, and Japan. They know we stand with them, that America can be counted on." He also promised that in addition to meeting with the leaders of Russia and China, he would meet with "those who aspire to freedom and liberty" in those states. [ Source ]

  1. As an Israeli old enough to have lived through the betrayals of the 1960's, 70's, 80's and beyond.. I urge caution.

    Every would be presidential candidate holds their noses and make a vote-getting pilgrimage to my country. After election, most revert to their Islamo-centric Arabism. (After all, it is the Saudi lobbyists who fill their coffers)

    You mentioned Chris Christies "Pro-Israel" statement above....well, spare a minute to read these articles:
