Rubio strikes Trump on Israel, seeking crucial Florida win



JPost: “A Quinnipiac poll from August showed that 61 percent of Floridians oppose the nuclear deal reached with Iran last summer– a position reflected by Rubio. The state’s legislature this week passed a law with near-unanimous support divesting the state from contracting with parties supporting the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel. And a Gallup poll from 2015 showed nationwide support for the president among American Jews narrowing to 54 percent– still higher than the national average, but lower than the point spread that he has enjoyed throughout his presidency.

Rubio may also be motivated to win over the country’s largest pro-Israel donors as his candidacy enters a fateful stage. Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who has long prioritized a conservative interpretation of Israeli security needs, is said to prefer Rubio among the remaining contenders.

At a debate on Thursday night in Houston, Trump was questioned for stating he would remain “neutral” in the Middle East peace process. A deal between Israel and the Palestinians, he said, would be the greatest deal of them all– and he considers himself a dealmaker.”

Opinion: A curious choice of words.

After demonstrating a not-so-vast knowledge of the Bible by quoting “Two Corinthians 3:17″,  Mr. Trump needs to know that it is Antichrist who “shall confirm a covenant” with  Israel and her neighbors (Daniel 9:27) to live in false peace, and that will indeed be the greatest deal of them all.
