Romney talks tough on Iran
By Thanassis Cambanis and Scott Helman, Globe Staff | January 24, 2007
HERZLIYA, Israel — Mitt Romney, making a passionate appeal to pro-Israel voters, declared at a major conference on Israeli security yesterday that the United States must keep Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb, and he’s helping a former Israeli prime minister lobby Massachusetts to divest pension funds from companies that do business with the country.
“Iran must be stopped and can be stopped,” Romney said to a standing ovation at the Herzliya Conference, an annual gathering of leading Israeli and American political figures and security specialists.
Romney’s short, forceful address came on a four-day trip to Israel this week, a visit that serves two important political objectives: It further deepens his foreign policy resume and helps him strengthen ties to American Jews, a group of voters and donors the GOP believes is increasingly integral to the party.
“When you take time in the middle of a busy campaign to go abroad, the place you pick to go is a powerful statement of who you are and what you believe,” said Ari Fleischer, President Bush’s former press secretary and a board member of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which sponsored Romney’s visit.
