Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) both spoke to the gathered Jewish activists at AIPAC this week. Yesterday we featured Mr. Trump’s speech, today we bring you Senator Cruz’s rousing effort.
“America will stand unapologetically with the nation of Israel,” he proclaimed, stating that he would have no neutrality on the issue.
Then he turned to the Iran deal, asserting: “I will rip this catastrophic Iranian deal to shreds”, once again taking aim at Donald Trump, stating that the latter would seek a better deal, rather than reimposing sanctions, as Mr Cruz promises to.
“Either you [Iran] will shut down your nuclear programme,” he threatened, “Or we will shut it down for you.”
Sen. Cruz promised to move “the American embassy to Jerusalem, the once and eternal capital of Israel” — a promise made by many a Presidential candidate over the years…”
“I believe this Iranian deal is Munich in 1938… God bless America and Am Israel Chai.”
Cruz takes immediate Trump shot: “perhaps to the surprise of the last speaker, Palestine has not existed since 1948.”

Dem Rep. Brad Sherman, in press box, yells “bingo!” when Cruz dings Trump for saying “Palestine.”
