Jerusalem Post: Where do Joe Biden’s potential cabinet members stand on Israel?
By Omri Nahmias
Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, who served for four years as Coons’s foreign-policy adviser, told The Jerusalem Post the senator is “incredibly thoughtful” on foreign policy.
“He understands and values the US-Israel relationship, and is strongly supportive of Israel’s security,” she said. “He did support the JCPOA, but took that position after a lot of deliberation and careful consideration in terms of the US national security interest and that of Israel.”
“I think he would be a phenomenal secretary of state because he really is a practitioner of foreign policy,” Soifer said. “He understands diplomacy. He has furthered relationships with many countries, including as chairman of the Africa subcommittee for four years.”
