Mitt Romney on Saturday promised social conservative voters that his approach towards Israel would be the "opposite" of Obama administration's policies.
Asked how he would "strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship," during a video address to attendees of the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference, Romney said he would "just look at the things the president has done and do the opposite," reports said.
Romney also said he would be "leading in Syria by encouraging our friends there like the Turks and the Saudis to provide weapons to the insurgents."
Romney has been a strong advocate of arming opposition forces seeking the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but such moves have been rejected by the Obama administration.
