While the media is currently having lots of fun asking their hypothetical "gotcha" question over a non-existent Muslim candidate, the possibility that Bernie Sanders could become America's first Jewish president should be a valid topic for conversation in the midst of this campaign.

Paul Scham

His behavior since July has provided strong evidence that he not only doesn't care about bipartisan support for Israel but, rather, is actively working to swing Jewish support to the Republicans while virtually writing off, even deliberately alienating, traditionally pro-Israel liberal Democrats.

Robert K. Lifton

The American people deserve to know in advance, what they can expect from a negative vote on the deal in Congress and, in turn, let their elected representatives know what they, the American people want. Are they willing to undertake a military undertaking if that is the only option?

Let's not kid ourselves. The deal with Iran that President Barack Obama so proudly announced on Tuesday does not prevent the Islamic Republic from becoming a nuclear power. Far from it. The unasked, and unanswered, question in all the predictable hubbub and blather is how much that matters.
