Can Israel Count On Kerry?

In yesterday’s Washington Times, Suzanne Fields notes:

During the primaries, in a speech to the Arab-American Institute, [Kerry] denounced the fence Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was building on the West Bank. “We don’t need another barrier to peace, ” he said. Eight months later, with the Democratic nomination safely tucked away, he sang a different tune: “The security fence is a legitimate act of self-defense erected in response to the wave of terror attacks against Israeli citizens.”

When I was in Israel two weeks ago, Israelis on the Right AND Left bemoaned Kerry’s support in the American Jewish community. When I asked why they thought so many Jewish Americans refused to support “Israel’s Best Friend” GWB, the most common answer was that many Jewish Americans are too liberal even to support Israel and its right to exist.

The problem isn’t either Zionism or anti-semitism. As usual, it’s liberalism.
