When I was a kid, I used to hear adults talk about the big current event of the day and it always ended with the same question "Is it good for the Jews?" Even when the question didn't belong. For example
"Did You hear that Phelps won his 9th gold medal?"
"Yes But is it Good For the Jews?
That one question is a big issue in the presidential campaign. Since Jews tend to be passionate Democrats, most Jewish Dems would ignore his anti-Israel advisers (including Dick Lugar who the candidate mentioned yesterday as a favorite source of foreign policy advice) and answer a resounding YES. But the real truth is, if you take a look at the platforms the candidates are running on, you will find some REAL and Uncomfortable differences between the two candidates.
In this month's Journal of International Security Affairs, Michael Oren, a senior fellow at the Shalem Center makes an Item by Item comparison of the "Jewish Issues" in the both campaign's platforms. Click here for the analysis.
