Presidents On Israel

Josh Gelernter has written On Jewish matters, comparing Obama with his predecessors.  And it's no surprise that Obama comes up short. "In fact, you could argue that Israel’s best-ever friends in the White House were Reagan and the second Bush. None of the men quoted here supported Israel because of pressure groups. Most of these past presidents were deeply religious; those who weren’t were deeply thoughtful, and supported Israel as a matter of conscience, not of politics." 

Speaking of supporting Israel, South Carolina has become the first state to pass a bill against the BDS movement. Good for them!
