Romney top non-Jew ‘positively influencing the Jewish future’

The Algemeiner Journal compiled its third annual list of the top 10 non-Jews who positively influence the Jewish future. Topping the list this year was GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney.

According to the Algemeiner, “Love or hate his politics, Romney’s vocal support for Israel as a contender for the world’s top job, has challenged the incumbent and many Americans to rediscover their own understanding of the United States’ special relationship with the Jewish state.”

The Algemeiner‘s decision was based upon the fact that, “His tough stance on Iran has put the Ayatollahs on notice.  In his recent trip to the Holy Land, he acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cited the historic connection of the Jewish people with the land, which has gone a long way in underlining the Jewish narrative regarding Israel on the world stage, thereby earning him the top spot this year.”

Noticeably missing from the list is President Barack Obama. The entire article can be read in theAlgemeiner, a Jewish newspaper published in the U.S..
