Washington, D.C. – Four innocent people, including three Americans with dual U.S.- Israeli citizenship, were murdered in Tuesday morning’s horrific terrorist attack in Jerusalem. The continued violence in Israel and constant turmoil in the Middle East makes a clear and comprehensive foreign policy agenda a must for any potential conservative presidential candidate. In a piece in today’s Christian Post, Penny Nance, Joel Rosenberg, and Ralph Reed explain why support for Israel should be a centerpiece of that foreign policy – and they outline six other crucial positions conservative voters will be looking for in the next president. One relevant excerpt reads:
“ISRAEL AND RADICAL ISLAM – Does the candidate have a clear and coherent view of U.S. vital interests in the Middle East, including a demonstrated, consistent, long-standing support for Israel and a solid understanding of why Israel matters to the U.S.? Does the candidate have a clear understanding of the urgency of the threats posed by Iran, ISIS, and Radical Islam more broadly, and a serious approach towards dealing with such threats? Does he or she have proven wisdom and experience in dealing with the Middle East issues, or is the candidate too new to the foreign policy arena?”
