2012 Republican Presidential Nominee

Former Governor of Massachusetts
Mitt Romney

Romney's profile and positions on the issues



• In Mitt Romney's opinion amidst the many critical challenges that America faces today, the threat of violent and radical Jihad and the threat of nuclear proliferation stand at the top.

• Romney cites the former President Jimmy Carter's view with regard to bringing peace to the Holy Land and thinks the opposite. According to him, it is only helping to prevent terror and bloodshed and violence.

• Romney quotes. "State taxpayers should not be providing special treatment to an individual who supports violent jihad and the destruction of Israel."

• Romney fears that radical Islam has one goal; to replace all Islamic states in the world under one caliphate and convert the non-believers of Islam forcibly, if necessary, to Islam. He says that this plan is more irrational than the Nazi Germany policies of the 1930s and Stalin?s Cold War or the 1940s.

• Mitt Romney has committed that he would defeat the jihadists all around the world. Most of his speeches however focus on restricting Iran rather than making decisions to resolve the tension between Israel and Palestine.

• Romney requested the Arab states to stop providing weapons and financial support to Hezbollah and Hamas and instead to put pressure on the Palestinians to "drop terrorism and recognize Israel's right to exist."

• Mitt Romney strongly supports the security wall that divides Israel from the West Bank.

Obama's profile and positions on the issues



• Barack Obama states that the only way for Israel to achieve peace with their neighbors is to "begin with a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel".

• Obama criticized those who denied the Holocaust, yet he supports talks with the Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who also denies the holocaust and eventually promises that a new one would come.

• Obama has praised past Israeli leaders for their kind gestures of peace towards Palestinians but refused to recognize their earlier attempts that led to violence and death of Israelis.

• Barack Obama mentions that he is in support of resumption of the aid to the Palestinian government with a condition that the government 'renounces terrorism'.

• Obama opines thus, "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people." He has declared recently in his speech ?our enemies are not just terrorists, it's not just Hezbollah, it's not just Hamas, and it?s also cynicism."

• Obama contends that there is a need to preserve Israel as a Jewish state though it has its politicians and its security as well.

• With regard to the security of Israel Barack Obama stated, "you will not see, under my presidency, any slackening in commitment to Israel?s security."

• Obama stood strong with regard to Israel's right to defend itself from the rocket attacks and raids of Hezbollah.

• He hates characterization and rejects the term apartheid in any discussion with regard to Israel's progress.
