Only one presidential candidate yesterday praised Gilad Shalit’s release and return to Israel. That candidate was Jon Huntsman as the article from TheHill.com (here) points out.
Not only did no other candidate say anything positive about it, some of the candidates criticized it in the CNN debate tonight. Bachmann, Cain, and Santorum said it was wrong to negotiate with terrorists.
Also of note from the CNN debate, Perry said all foreign aid should be reviewed. Israel is included in all. The question that should be asked in the media is why?
I just wanted to share some of these insights from today with you and I hope that some of it will be expressed in your media outlets because I am a little bit sick of all the pro Israel press only going to Romney and Perry.
