Two recent opinion columns were uploaded today to our Opinions column. The first is by former U. S. Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN). He advocates for Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, suggesting he has been a friend to Israel. The second is by former World Jewish Congress president Edgar Bronfman and he promotes the re-election of President Barack Obama on the grounds that he has been friendly towards the Jewish state. The editorial policy of the CCJN is to present fair and balanced opinion pieces that will help the readership to make up its own mind during the course of this and any election. It would be premature at this juncture – before any of the political parties has met officially to select a candidate – for the CCJN to advocate on behalf of any one candidate over the other. Nevertheless, in the interest of informing our community members, it is appropriate to publish opinion pieces like these in as fair and balanced a method as possible.
