FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
With all due respect to former Governor Jon Huntsman, who claims foreign policy experience based on “having lived overseas four times,” living abroad doesn’t make you an expert. Only being involved in the nitty gritty of the real world, as I have been for decades, makes you an expert on what to do and how to do it.
The Palestinian/Israel confrontation is not insoluble, as some believe, and it will not grind on much longer, as many expect.
I can state without fear of contradiction that the vast majority of the Israeli people want peace, and the vast majority of Palestinians want peace. So peace is not the issue. Internal Israeli politics and
Now, obviously, I am not the front-runner for the Republican party’s presidential nomination. But I will be doing my darnedest to get on the national ticket some way, somehow. Governors Perry and Romney, or whoever grabs the gold ring, will need my experience.
First, a little background. A couple of years ago a close friend died. Fred Howard was a refugee from Nazi Germany. You can even see a movie where Fred is featured, “The Ritchie Boys.” (link below) Despite the horrors of the Holocaust, Fred never lost his love for
Through the lens of Fred’s experience and great wealth I came to have a unique and expanded insight into
I would never do anything to dishonor Fred’s goals and Fred’s love for
I also know that Barack Obama—despite the right-wing hissy fits that Obama is anti-Israel--is not anti-Israel. The
In fact, I will go one step further. As someone who has studied Obama and virtually lived in his clothes for the past seven years, I could tell “President” Obama how to get reelected. I don’t expect him to call me, and I won't volunteer his path to reelection, but it’s there. Obama just can’t see it. And so it will be left to Republicans to solve the Israel/Palestine confrontation in 2013.
I call 2013 a potential “Nixon in

The contours of a Palestinian/Israeli solution have been known for years. Israeli leaders who are free to speak the truth know that (Olmert link below). Pro-Israel media admit that as well (NYT link below). So what are we waiting for? (Answer: we are waiting for a Republican leader to do a “Nixon in

Palestinian President Abbas does not wear a pistol, Arafat-style. His western dress is as conservative as that of any national leader. There are no keffiyehs in the Palestinian delegation. More importantly, only Abbas can defeat Hamas and stop Iranian expansionism. The
III. Without a Palestinian state,
If political fund-raiser speeches could change the world or define the world what an easy world it would be. Hot-air and half-truths could rage against reality and never lose. But the real world is a very different place. My experience comes out of the real world, not the fantasy island of politics.
I’ve met Israeli government officials, kibbutz leaders, military people and, yes, even clandestine operatives. No other Republican actually knows
Seven years ago I opposed the invasion of

President Nixon was pilloried for making anti-Semitic remarks on the White House tapes. But Nixon saved the state of
Nixon was not an anti-Semite. He made outrageous statements, but who among us has not? Nixon reflected the state-of-mind of the era in which he lived and the “locker room” atmosphere of a White House where talking trash was macho. [Full disclosure: Barack Obama regularly accuses me of being an anti-Semite, but I am not. In 2008 my friend Fred Howard offered to buy a full-page, full-color ad in the New York Times attacking anyone who would call me anti-Semitic. I told Fred we should save his money and throw a party. Nixon never had any intention of being anti-Semitic and neither have I. Obama owes me an apology.]
