    Obama loves to pretend that he is a great ally to Israel; but during the third debate, he thrice ignored the opportunity to state that he would militarily support Israel. Romney, on the other hand, stated quite clearly that we would militarily support Israel.

    I heard the opposite

    I heard Obama say he would support Israel without question if it were attacked....

    "Standing up" for Israel is not offering military support. And in fact, Schieffer pointedly asked Obama if he militarily supported Israel and he was sure to use such ambiguous language.

    There is a clear difference between the stances of the candidates. That is what has been cleared up.

    Strong military cooperation doesn't seem ambiguous to me. Neither does this...

    Massive Multinational Maneuvers Put Iran on Notice

    ...or this.

    The Iran nuclear issue and supporting Israel militarily are not synonymous matters.
