America Helps Best When It Helps Itself

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

The quadrennial question for America's Jews, every time a new crop of presidential candidates arises is "Who's best on Israel?" This year, consider how to appropriately answer that question. A peaceful and just America is best for Israel, just as it is for the whole world. Press for an America more at peace with itself, more generous with others, restored to respect among the nations - an America engaged, diligently and constructively, with a faraway conflict so close to our hearts.
