He stood be­fore a thou­sand guests in mid­town Man­hat­tan and called for Amer­ica to both elect a Repub­li­can and sup­port Is­rael: that would be Os­car-win­ning ac­tor Jon Voight, one of Hol­ly­wood’s rare, un­apolo­getic con­ser­va­tives. Mr. Voight at­tended the Zion­ist Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Amer­ica’s “Su­per­star Gala” on a re­cent Sun­day night where he also re­ceived the “Adel­son De­fender of Is­rael Award” from Miriam and Shel­don Adel­son, the good­na­tured mega-phi­lan­thropists and Repub­li­can donors who have con­sid­er­able ap­peal to all GOP pres­i­den­tial hope­fuls.

Mr. Voight was in­tro­duced to the cheer­ing crowd by for­mer Rep. Michele Bach­mann, Min­nesota Repub­li­can. Also present: Is­raeli Am­bas­sador to the U.S. Ron Der­mer; me­dia maven Mort Zuck­er­man; Har­vard Univer­sity law pro­fes­sor Alan Der­showitz; and Mor­ton A. Klein, pres­i­dent of the host or­ga­ni­za­tion.
