What U.S. role in the world is best for Israel?
Is it to be loved, to be feared, or to be respected? The 2008 campaign provides a good lens for answering that question.
As the son of Holocaust survivors, I select my political candidates based on two criteriaÃ¯Â¿Â½"what's best for the country and what's best for Jews everywhere, particularly Israel. In both respects, John McCain is unquestionably the best candidate running for President.
In October, introducing Rudy Giuliani before the Republican Jewish Coalition, philanthropist Sheldon Adelson said of the former New York City mayor, "Time after time Mayor Giuliani not only said the right things about Israel, which is easy to do, but he took the right actions as well."
Expand that beyond Israel and Mr. Adelson has quite effectively outlined the driving rationale behind Rudy Giuliani's bid for the presidency: Other candidates might say the right things, but Rudy actually does them. And he has for years.
