Mitt Romney is finally emerging as the Republican nominee for president. In the weeks ahead, he will begin to face off directly against President Barack Obama, and this will cause American Jews to once ask again the oft-repeated question of whether or not Obama is good for Israel. The debate until today, regrettably, has been overly partisan and more than a little close-minded. A sincere discussion of the issue requires us to go beyond the present tendency of each side to rummage through facts in their mad search for evidence that proves their view. The truth is that even the most "pro-Israel" administrations have had their very "anti-Israel" moments, and vice versa. Most crucially, however, we must alter our myopic view of what is really at stake here for Israel's national security.
