Recently, The Jerusalem Post published a dangerous piece, “Washington Watch: Can foreign policy be good local politics?”, which mistakenly endorsed Congressman Howard Berman (71) over Congressman Brad Sherman (57) in what is the most important Congressional race for the pro-Israel community in America.Both congressmen are moderate Democrats, Jewish, senior members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and are contesting a newly re-drawn California Congressional district pitting two veteran officials into a heavily Democratic district. Berman has served far longer in Congress, and is thus the ranking member in House Foreign Affairs. However, his most productive days in Congress are long behind him. Whereas they are very similar on domestic issues, the far better candidate for Israel is Brad Sherman. Sherman is an outspoken champion for stopping the Iranian nuclear threat and is the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade. Sherman is energetic, focused and will make an outstanding difference for years to come.
