Yes, there have been noxious anti-Semitc comments by one of the candidates: not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. Journalists scouring only the Trump record for anti-Semitism–but not both sides equally–betray their own insincerity, and dishonorably misuse this serious issue for partisan purposes.
There are monumental issues confronting America in terms of national security, foreign policy, the economy, and the corruption and politicization of the IRS, FBI and Justice Department. Hillary is more problem than solution to every one of these issues. If I have to hold my nose over some of Trump’s actions to vote against her, so be it; too much else is at stake.
Donald Trump may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But considering his far more solidly pro-Israel team, Republican commitment to repeal FATCA, Democratic unreliability towards Israel and Hillary’s deplorable Israel record (beyond her words), it’s not a close call.

That Independence Day goes by insufficiently appreciated is a symptom of an erosion of American identity. For some perspective, let’s look at Memorial Day. In Israel.

With an upcoming four-week break in the middle of primary season; with a decreasing likelihood that any single candidate can capture an outright majority of delegates; with an increasing number of delegates unbound to any candidate; and with most remaining primaries being Republican-voters-only and/or winner-take-all, the Republican nomination process is far from over.
