The Republican Party Platform dedicates more than 500 words to support for Israel. The platform commits the party to maintaining Israel’s “qualitative edge in defensive technology over any potential adversaries” and reiterates President Bush’s rejection of a “right of return” for Palestinian refugees and his endorsement of some Israeli claims in the West Bank. It also praises Bush’s condemnations of anti-Semitism.
