Democrats blast Ben Carson for breakfast speech

Well, Dr. Ben Carson did say in his speech that he thought doctors should get involved in politics. Carson was blasted on CNN on Sunday morning by J Street Jan Schakowsky (D-Il).
Schakowsky accused Carson of using political correctness, rather than fighting it: “Well, I think that there’s a political correctness that he was trying to use to appeal to a conservative audience,” she said, shaking her head. She went on to criticize Carson for making a “political speech” in front of Obama and in a specifically religious context.
I think it’s really--not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech, and to invoke God as support for that kind of view. But I think of most of all the kind of message that he was giving shows a real empathy gap with where the American people are right now, and I think it’s reflective of where many of the Republicans and Tea Parties are right now, that we need to have an economy that works for everyone.
In his address, Carson had specifically avoided taking a partisan point of view, noting that the American bald eagle needed both a “right wing” and a “left wing” to take flight.
Go back and watch the Carson video and notice that Michelle Obama was applauding at the end of the speech. Maybe Michelle didn't get it? Nah, that can't be. She's a genius....

Dems seem to scraping the bottom of the barrel. I heard the entirety of that speech and there was almost nothing in it that anyone could say is partisan. Before he was Apologist in Chief, Obama could have given this speech itself, couched as it was in entirely mainstream values of Christian piety and good works.

Can anybody give me a clear picture of what Dr. Ben Carson's positions are on the State of Israel?
I cannot find anything giving a clear position by him about this.
Anyone who wants to can send me an Email at: catriel dot lev at gmail dot com (please give a subject, like "Ben Carson on Israel" for the Email).
Thanks,
Catriel Lev
