Jewish groups support Bolton as UN diplomat
Advertisements [?]

By: MARILYN H. KARFELD Senior Staff Reporter

Major Jewish organizations are strongly supporting the nomination of John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a fact that has flown under the public radar.


However, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), B'nai B'rith International (BBI), the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) all back Bolton's nomination.


In his letter, Abraham Foxman, ADL national director, called Bolton "a man of principle and integrity." Daniel S. Mariaschin, BBI executive vice president, said Bolton can have an "immediate and important impact" on efforts to reform the UN.


"It is not clear that the current problems of the UN can be ‘fixed,'" wrote Tom Neumann, JINSA executive director, in his letter to Lugar. But, "the path to effective progress lies in a U.S. ambassador with the ability to define discrete problems ... form coalitions ... and most important, (with) a clear moral compass defining democracy as a higher order of government." When not a government employee, Bolton has been a member of JINSA's board of advisers.
