Romney says his first foreign trip as president would be to Israel

Share:

Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, said during a foreign policy debate Tuesday night that his first foreign trip as president would be to Israel and accused President Barack Obama of being unfriendly to Israel.

“The right course for Israel is to care about Israel,” he said during the debate with seven other contenders for the GOP nomination , held in Washington. “My first foreign trip will be to Israel to show we care about them.”

Another candidate, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, said he would likely make Israel his first stop, although his first foreign policy priority would be to counter anti-American trends in Latin America.

Among the questions raised at the debate was whether the candidates would join Israel in an attack on Iran to stop it from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Herman Cain, a businessman, said he would, once he had assessed Israel’s mission as sufficiently clear.

Newt Gingrich, the former U.S. House of Representatives speaker, said he would join such an endeavor only if it were a last resort and he was certain it would result in regime change.

He said not supporting Israel could be dangerous in such a situation, because should Israel feel abandoned, it might resort to nuclear weapon attacks on Iran.

The only other candidate to address the question, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), said he would not join Israel, but added that he did not believe Israel would launch a strike.

    If you listen to their debates, you realize how little they know about the rest of the world. Or even their own country. America is in sad shape. Ooopps indeed.
    Someone should tell him if he ever had a visa to Lebanon, he should get a ‘fresh’ passport-book. They won’t let him in.
    Vice-versa, of course … we all believe in tit-for-tat don’t we?

    1. Were fine, Trust me.. We just have liberals with too much pull. When we get the presidency and the Senate back in 2012 watch what happens when we roll back the moratoriums and open drilling everywhere.. We also will be dealing with the mullahs.. Sooner than you all think.

      Finally there are some people among our neighbours who will loudly and clearly state that we in Israel are in fact human beings.

      1. You are defenitly human beings and I support the innocents of Israel as I do of Lebanon, but it would be nice if the
        Israelies would consider others human biengs,as Manachem Begin once said ” there are 2 world races the jewish race and the animal race”…good day.

      2. More accurate post of what he said:

        “”Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

        This is the zionest way of thinking my friend….This was the leader of Israel not some random hoodlum on the streets and he was elected by this way of thinking,and supported…so please save your speech bout always being the victim…Thank you…

        1. Although as a Jew I don’t agree with you at all about master race theory, at least you acknowledge that we are a race. Most anti-Zionists hash up ridiculous arguments that we’re descended from Europeans or Khazars. But if Arabs recognize that we are a native Semitic people, just like they are, then you start to think about your enemy as you would yourself, and you can have peace.

          You think we in Israel care about ruling over other people. Then Hezbollah propaganda has infiltrated your head. We just want to live quietly in peace in our tiny country. the only reason we intervene in Lebanon is because of the threats that come to us from Lebanon. In 1982, it was the PLO’s attacks. In 2006, it was the kidnapping of our soldiers. Hopefully, HA won’t start trouble again.

        2.Knowing it yourself taking the jump, having courage to look at the other side of the coin and KNOW it yourself, rather than just borrow knowledge.

  6. your first priority Gov. Romney should work on USA economy, love your country first before you love another country .Do not copy most Lebanese leaders, see how far we got in Lebanon with that mentality.Also if you remember in 80 the Jewish government would not allow Brigham Young University extension to open up till the the Mormon Church abandons proscelizing Jews into the Mormon faith.

  8. These guys are all suck ups! Why care more for another country over yours? They all love playing the Israel card and people are stupid enough to beleive them.

    1. I don’t think it is just about a country it goes much, much deeper than that.
      Think of what the land not the people is all about.
      The US give in to the Arabs what will the picture look like.
      Yes the American clowns need to fix their country first.

      The Arabs play the Palestinian card but they do not give a crap about these people who live in their country .
      They bring in worker and thousands of them to work in the ME from dozens of countries from Asia with no education, but will not give one job to the Palestinian people.

      A lot of cards and always a bigger reason why and how it is played.
