More Fear and Smear from RJC and Other McCain Supporters

Listed in: Israel, Stop the Smears, NJDC News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC - Ira N. Forman, Executive Director of the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC), released the following statement:

This is just more of the same fear and smear that we hear from RJC and other Sen. John McCain supporters. It is clear from Senator Barack Obama's speech yesterday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that he will continue to be a great friend of Israel from the White House.

I urge you to listen to his speech where he explains:

"My strong commitment to make sure that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable today, unbreakable tomorrow, unbreakable forever....That the bond between Israel and the United States is rooted in more than our shared national interests. It's rooted in the shared values and shared stories of our people. And, as president, I will work with you to ensure that it is this bond that is strengthened." (AIPAC Speech 6/4/08)

With regards to Iran Senator Obama said unequivocally that, "Finally, let there be no doubt: I will always keep the threat of military action [against Iran] on the table to defend our security and our ally, Israel. Do not be confused." (AIPAC Speech 6/4/08)

These words are supported by a perfect pro-Israel voting record, a deep passion for Israel and an impeccable understanding of the policies that will succeed where Bush/McCain policies have failed.
