Mitt Romney Addresses Christians with his Position on Israel
Romney spoke to the Faith and Freedom Coalition yesterday in Pennsylvania and took a firm pro-Israel position. One of his strongest statements accused President Obama of being more afraid of Israel attacking Iran than of Iran developing nuclear weapons.
When asked what he would do to strengthen U.S. relations with the Jewish state, if he were elected, he said (according to the Los Angeles Times) “I think, by and large, you can just look at things the president has done and do the opposite.” The crowd laughed and cheered him on.
Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, frequently attacks the administration for failing to back Israel’s government more aggressively.
Some evangelicals have been hostile to Romney because of his Mormon faith. However the presidential candidate made it clear that he needs the support of evangelical Christians in the November election.
