Signaling to Jewish voters that she would be more openly supportive of Israel and tougher on Iran than President Obama, Hillary Clinton told The Jewish Week in an exclusive interview that “it is unfair to put the onus on Israel” for the lack of progress on the Mideast peace front. And she asserted that “Iran should be sanctioned” for the recent launch of missiles Tehran says were designed to be able to hit the Jewish state, something the administration has not been prepared to do.

Our R-Rated Presidential Campaign

I don’t want my young granddaughters watching the television coverage of presidential campaign because so much is simply unsuitable for children. 

What should be a unique learning experience about American democracy in action has become an R-rated assault on the senses.

I've never seen one like this. Not Nixon's dirty tricks, not LBJ's daisy petals, not George H.W. Bush's Willy Horton (if you don't remember, Google them).

In what has been a troubling, even worrying U.S. election season, we have reason for optimism and an excellent choice. Amid all the inflammatory rhetoric that has characterized this election, former Sen. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has consistently offered rational, productive, achievable answers to the serious problems our nation faces. It is time to set out on a path on which we can address difficult challenges rather than vent anger and cast blame.

As both Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump emerged as their party’s likely presidential nominees given their impressive Super Tuesday primary victories, anti-Semitism has suddenly surfaced as an issue.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan praised Trump this week for being the “only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said, ‘I don’t want your money.’”

He stopped short of endorsing Trump but added, “I like what I’m looking at.”
