The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Mitch McConnell

US Senator

Veteran Kentucky Republican Senator Mitch McConnell has been the minority leader in the US Senate since the beginning of 2021, following six years in the post of majority leader. A seasoned player in the rough and tumble of American politics, the conservative McConnell has been a thorn in the side of the Biden Administration’s efforts on issues ranging from the debt ceiling to Supreme Court appointments. On the foreign policy front, McConnell has always been a stalwart supporter of the State of Israel and an opponent of the Iranian regime and radical Islamist groups. During the conflict between Israel and Hamas in May 2021, McConnell dismissed as “nonsense” the view “that this conflict is a tragic dispute between two legitimate combatants where both sides share blame that is roughly equal.” Such moral equivalence was “obscene,” McConnell said on the floor of the Senate.
