Neoconservative writer Bill Kristol slammed Donald Trump again, insisting that the Republican candidate’s campaign shakeup would do nothing to reverse his slide in the polls.
With Donald Trump all but crowned the Republican presidential nominee, the question is inescapable for Jewish Republicans: Can they rally behind the controversial standard-bearer?
The Republican Jewish Coalition and the Emergency Committee for Israel this week urged a group of rabbis supporting President Barack Obama’s reelection to purge members of the Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinical Council from its ranks. The conservative groups claimed they were shocked by the inclusion in the “Rabbis for Obama” list of those whose “values are representative of a small and extreme group of anti-Israel activists.”
It should be forbidden to exploit fear as a political tool. AIPAC and the Emergency Committee on Israel shamelessly violate that edict on the issue of Iran.
Neoconservatives can espouse Jewish values as much as progressives can. Judaism is too broad a term to be of use in political philosophy, Jay Michaelson writes.
The Emergency Committee for Israel has taken the lead among conservative groups blasting President Obama. Now it has a so-called Super PAC, which can raise and spend as much as it likes.
A new Emergency Committee ad accuses President Obama of using Israel as a ‘punching bag.’ Democrats brand William Kristol’s group a ‘front organization’ for Republicans.
The long knives are out for another Jewish liberal who committed the sin of stating the uncomfortably obvious truth about the causal effect between Israeli policy and Muslim anti-Semitism.
The Jewish establishment put out a call for American Jews to leave Israel out of the political race. The response from the GOP and conservatives? Drop dead.
Political writer and public intellectual Irving Kristol — a former Trotskyite who would break with the left and come to be known as the godfather of neoconservatism — died Friday in Washington. He was 89, and the cause of death was complications from lung cancer, The New York Times is reporting.
