Mitt Romney “Drew A Standing Ovation” As He “Referred Pointedly To Jerusalem As ‘The Capital Of Israel.’” “He also referred pointedly to Jerusalem as ‘the capital of Israel,’ something Obama administration officials are loath to do, because Palestinians also imagine the city as the future capital of their hoped-for state. The line drew a standing ovation from some in the crowd and, later, an echo from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who underscored, ‘Jerusalem will always be the capital of Israel.’” (Jodi Rudoren and Ashley Parker, “Romney Backs Israeli Stance On Threat Of Nuclear Iran,” The New York Times, 7/29/12)

“Mr. Netanyahu, Whose Relationship With Mr. Obama Has Been Rocky, Was Generous In His Praise Of Mr. Romney.”  “Mr. Netanyahu, whose relationship with Mr. Obama has been rocky, was generous in his praise of Mr. Romney. ‘Mitt, I couldn’t agree with you more, and I think it’s important to do everything in our power to prevent the ayatollahs from possessing the capability’ to develop a nuclear weapon, the prime minister said earlier in the day. ‘We have to be honest and say that all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota.’” (Jodi Rudoren and Ashley Parker, “Romney Backs Israeli Stance On Threat Of Nuclear Iran,” The New York Times, 7/29/12)
