Election day is drawing near and endorsements are pouring in for both president Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Foreign relations has been a big topic amongst the election and at least one Israeli newspaper is backing Obama.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz has taken a stand behind the president.
According to the Huffington Post, the well-respected newspaper published an editorial on Friday praising the president and believes the road that Obama has and wants to develop with Israel is “good” for the country. It seems that there is no real reason for the president to be referred to negatively in regards to foreign relations with the country.
Although the newspaper has favored the president, reports show that overall Israelis prefer Mitt Romney.
According to a press release from iVoteIsrael, more Americans voting out of Israel are casting their vote in favor of Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Reports indicate that a whopping 85 percent of American voters in Israel voted for Mitt Romney while a mere 14 percent were in favor of the president. Reportedly, there are nearly 80,000 American voters living in Israel.
With only four days until election day, the polls are so close that no one can say who will be the next president of the United States. Yet, it is undeniable that both candidates believe Israel is America’s closest ally.
