Tonight, President Obama showed that he stands with the Jewish community on a wide range of issues from keeping America safe and fighting for economic justice to protecting a woman's right to choose and supporting legislation like the DREAM Act," said David Harris, President and CEO of NJDC. "Once again, Governor Mitt Romney demonstrated in tonight's debate that his views are completely out of step with the values of Jewish voters. In so many cases, the right-wing policies of the Romney/Ryan ticket are exactly the opposite of the views of a vast majority of Jewish voters.
Examples of how Governor Mitt Romney's values are out of step with the Jewish community follow the jump.
Governor Romney has tried time and time again to mischaracterize President Obama's relationship with Israel, ignoring that the relationship between these two countries is stronger than ever.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak shares this belief, stating: "The unshakable bonds between Israel and America and their respective defense establishments under the guiding hand of President Barack Obama are stronger and deeper than ever and we are very thankful and appreciative of that."

Iran: Romney's attacks that President Obama has failed to be tough on Iran is completely unfounded.
President Obama has made stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions a crucial part of his foreign policy plan, putting in place the most stringent Iran sanctions ever.
This past month Iran's currency dropped in value by 40% proving that the sanctions are in fact working.
