    In Jerusalem, Romney Delivers Strong Defense of Israel - NYTimes.com


    JERUSALEM – Mitt Romney said Sunday that preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities would be his “highest national security priority” if elected president, in a speech that emphasized the shared values and interests he sees between Israel and the United States but which offered few specifics about the policies he would implement to pursue them.

    “We have a solemn duty and a moral imperative to deny Iran’s leaders the means to follow through on their malevolent intentions,” Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told an audience of about 300, including a large contingent of American donors who flew here for the speech. “We must not delude ourselves into thinking that containment is an option.”

    Unlike the Obama administration, which generally speaks about stopping Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, Mr. Romney echoed the language of Israel’s leaders, who talk instead about blocking Tehran from even the capability to develop one. His top foreign policy aide, Dan Senor, also went beyond Mr. Obama’s statements that all options should remain on the table and that Israel has the right to defend itself by suggesting Mr. Romney is ready to support a unilateral military strike by Israel.

    “If Israel has to take action on its own,” Mr. Senor said before the speech, “the governor would respect that decision.”

    The campaign, in the middle of a seven-day overseas tour that began in London and continues Monday in Poland, appeared throughout the day to be struggling with the delicate diplomacy required of a candidate abroad. After reports of Mr. Senor’s comments were published, he issued a new statement that did not mention unilateral action, and later he said he was not necessarily referring to a military strike. Mr. Romney himself stuck to his promise not to criticize President Obama on foreign soil, though his speech did include one vague shot at Democrats.

    “We cannot stand silent as those who seek to undermine Israel voice their criticisms,” he said. “And we certainly should not join in that criticism. Diplomatic distance in public between our nations emboldens Israel’s adversaries.”

    He also referred pointedly to Jerusalem as “the capital of Israel,” something Obama administration officials, in keeping with decades of official American policy, are unwilling to do because Palestinians also envision the city as the future capital of their hoped-for state. The line drew a standing ovation from some in the crowd.

    What are people's problems? Israel got its homeland BACK (see they had it first) when the UN (the liberals favorite body) Oked it and helped.....and the 20 year old (yeah not old enough to buy booze yet) Palestinian state was backhanded.....guess what....I DO NOT CARE....they lost, sucks for them.....The huns took over Rome, sucked for them, Rome beat Carthage, sucked for them, when you lose, it sucks for you, we beat the British, sucked for them.....get over it.....move on

    PAlestine was made up, Israel has much more historical value and relevance than PAlestine, a 20 year old country, that was manufactured by Britain in the first place, sorry no dice

    Pretty sure much like all of Mitt's family..including his father and grandfather..

    Mitt's sons will not be putting their lives on the line..for this effort.

    It's great to be able to commit the sons of other men to die for your causes..ain't it?

    Ok Obama cocksucker, which part?
    PAlestine was made after the Ottman Empire collapsed, so 1920ish. It was made by the British, keep up so far?

    What are you Denying that Palestine was Set up in the 1920's by the UK?

    You lefties have such a selective view of History.
