AIPAC & the Presidential Campaign

I notice nobody's talking about Bernie Sanders' address to AIPAC this morning. Clinton's didn't go over very well.

Cruz tagged Trump for a symbolic violation of the way hard-core Israelis speak about Palestine, but made a foul of his own according to those rarefied rules.

According to an Israeli friend of mine, however, the big winner of the night was Trump, who won it all at the end of his speech when he showed that he couldn't wait for his "beautiful Jewish baby" grandchild. For her, that was better than all the carefully crafted speeches in the world.

I have tried from time to time to tell my Jewish friends and family that their Esthers and Ruths will save them, but they have real trouble with the concept.
