In front of a crowd of 1,200 at a Jewish policy discussion at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Jewish actor and conservative commentator Larry Miller embodied the sentiment of Iraq liberation advocates when he said the war was about fighting an evil.
Miller joined pro-Israel Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes and Jewish conservative writer John Podhoretz for “The Jewish Community; Liberal Roots and Conservative Solutions,” on Nov. 16.
Radio talk show host Michael Medved, the often-quoted Orthodox Jewish culture warrior, moderated the panel first by offering up liberal thinking-based questions for the right-of-center trio and then fielding audience questions.
“I heard four gentlemen make extremely good arguments as to why Jews should be Republicans and why they should support the politics of this president,” said Bruce Bialosky, Southern California chairman of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC). The RJC’s sister group, the Washington, D.C.-based Jewish Policy Center, sponsored the two-hour event.
