Estimated American Jewish electoral turnout for Bush-Cheney’s reelection adds up to about 25%. Can Republicans ever convince a majority of American Jews that conservative policies are good for the Jews, let alone good for anyone else?
Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick opines on “America’s Dark Side”:
First, why would the US ask for Israel to lower the level of a humanitarian aid delegation sent to assist US citizens in need? Second, why would the Bush administration hold up the arrival of assistance from a close ally whose government’s offer of assistance had been announced a week before? And thirdly, given the IDF Medical Corps’ enormous, hard-earned experience in contending with major disasters – man-made and natural – why would the Bush administration nix the participation of IDF doctors in the humanitarian assistance effort?
