Newt Gingrich is speaking now to a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition to huge applause and at least three standing ovations (so far). The Republican candidates are in a frenzy trying to undermine Obama on his "hard-line" stance with Israel.
So far Gingrich has promised to:
1. Move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem within the first few hours of his presidency via executive order
2. Appoint John Bolton as Secretary of State to end the department's policy of "appeasement"
3. Deal with Iran through sabotage and covert operations: "only rational long-term policy is regime replacement. I'll sabotage gasoline supply; fund every dissident group"
