Mitch Daniels and Israel

by Mona Charen

There have been some uninformed and slightly hysterical attacks on Gov. Mitch Daniels because he accepted an award from the Arab American Institute last week. Have a look at this speech Daniels delivered two years ago when he was honored by B’nai Brith.

UPDATE: Consider his very frank comments about Muslim anti-Semitism: “And then, most dangerously, a very large sector of one of the great religions of this world openly and unapologetically commit to the threatening and hoping for extinction of the state of Israel. Not a fringe movement of that religion but a mainstream portion. . .” 

Listen to the entire speech. It includes references to Maj. Hassan and Fort Hood. 

The attacks on Daniels could not be more ignorant or misguided.
