ON A RECENT visit to Israel, I was astounded to hear some people expressing fear about what a future president Hillary Clinton might mean for them and voicing support for Donald Trump. These fears are groundless and misplaced, while Trump would be a disaster for the entire world, including Israel.

Israelis should take note of the unprecedented number of former senior officials from past Republican administrations who have endorsed Clinton. This is not only because their party’s presidential nominee has shown himself to be an ignorant, ill-advised, bellicose, erratic bully, willing to cosset tyrants such as Vladimir Putin while endangering traditional alliances like NATO.It is also because these Republicans see Clinton as a tough, steady, experienced hand running US foreign policy.
