The second biggest issue for me is Israel. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and has always been a friend to the U.S. We in exchange rely heavily on their support for our intentions in the region. I always want to vote for a pro Israeli candidate.
America is closely tied to the people and the land of Israel. The people of Israel consider 3 presidents as having been a type of Cyrus.
At midnight on May 14, 1948, the Provisional Government of Israel proclaimed a new State of Israel . On that same date, the United States, in the person of President Truman, recognized the provisional Jewish government as de facto authority of the Jewish state. The people of Israel consider Harry Truman as a type of Cyrus
When Ronald Reagan in 1987 told Gorbachev to tear down this wall, and millions of Jews behind the iron curtain were allowed to immigrate to Israel it was a moment of Biblical proportions. To this day Israel looks at Reagan as a type of Cyrus.
Present day President Trump is considered a type of Cyrus because he moved our Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. A move promised by several U.S. Presidents, but never followed through with. Trump has been the most pro Israeli President we have ever had.
The Bible tells us that those who bless Israel, God will bless. I am thankful for that promise. I personally believe that part of our greatness has come from that strategic alliance between our great countries.
I will always vote pro Israel!
