Tom Campbell on War & Peace

Former Republican Representative (CA-15, 1995-2000)


Stand by Israel if they attack Iranian nukes

CAMPBELL: Let's talk about the threat that Israel and the US face from nuclear-armed Iran, which is huge. The responsibility of the US is to support Israel, if Israel needs to do to Iran what it did relative to Syria in September 2008 and relative to Iraq in 1981. And that is to use military force to take the potential of nuclear tipped weapons away from Iran. Our view as an ally of Israel should be made clear to the world that if Israel needs to take that step, we stand with Israel.

FIORINA: I certainly agree that we need to be extremely concerned about Iran and I believe that we have lost a year to President Obama's failed engagement policy. The time has come for us to impose crippling sanctions unilaterally if necessary. We should be limiting Iran's imports for fined petroleum. And we should also stand very firmly with the brave men and women in Iran who are challenging the repressive Government and take advantage of the fact that there is a historic split in the theocracy in Iran.

Consider but don't insist on Jerusalem as undivided capital

Q: Should Jerusalem be shared?

FIORINA: I do not support that Jerusalem should be divided. Tom Campbell apparently does.

CAMPBELL: No, that's not true.

FIORINA: You were one of only 34 people in the entire House in 1990 to vote against Jerusalem being the undivided capital.

CAMPBELL: The US at that point was inserting itself into the negotiations between the Palestinians & the Israelis; the final status of Jerusalem was the deal breaker. That should be resolved by the two parties. The motion was put by a Democrat to embarrass Pres. George H. W. Bush, who had criticized the process for not leading to a faster solution. It was a political maneuver.

FIORINA: The vast majority of Congress was not embarrassed by this supposedly diplomatic maneuver.

CAMPBELL: The Prime Minister of Israel was prepared to discuss a solution that involved as shared capital. I do not say that that should be the result. I say that the result should be worked out by the Israelis and the Palestinians.
