At the recent AIPAC conference, the New Jersey delegation heard from presidential hopeful, Senator Cory Booker. The delegation, I assume, was mesmerized and enthralled with Booker’s pre-practiced “Yiddish-isms” and Torah references and his unwavering support for the land and people of Israel. Say what? This is the same senator who opposed Trump’s negation of the Iran deal, who opposed moving the Israeli Embassy to Jerusalem and who I’m sure was not in favor of Trump’s agreement on the annexation (finally) of the Golan Heights by Israel. Are Booker’s decisions conducive to the strong relationship between the U.S. and Israel?

Allow me to add a fifth question for the season: Of the 70 nations created by God, why are Jews so dumb?
