Pro-Israel event that looks like a tea party

When that’s the way your supporters look, you need to ask yourself what has gone wrong. Here is nutcase Rep. Michele Bachmann (1:06) winning applauses from a pro-Israel crowd in a California rally, while Peace Now man (3:25) is booed so hard, the organizers try to calm things down (with very limited success).

    Rep. Michele Bachmann might just be America’s last best hope.

    She might just be Israel’s as well.

    Is there an explanation as to why you keep deleting my posts here? Is it the link to my Facebook page, the request that you post your own photo since you care so much about how people look, or something else?

    Michael – I sent you an e-mail to the address you entered. If you didn’t get it, write me from your current mail and I’ll re-send it. My mail is on the “about” page.

    How sickening, to see American politicians grovel before Israel, an expansionist/racist/occupier/oppressor state.

    David, if Israel is expansionist as you claim, what stopped Israel from taking Damascus, Cairo, and Amman in 67, or 73 for that matter, when nothing stood between Israeli tanks and those capitals, but a scattered and broken rabble? And why did Israel give back over 90% of the land they captured, AFTER they had discovered and established a 2 billion dollar a year oil industry in the Sinai?

    If Israel is racist as you claim, what race do they promote? Jews come in many races and Arabs make up 20% of the population. Of course, the people you champion mention the “Arab” race over 30 times in one of their founding documents….yet you are fine with that.

    If Israel is occupying another sovereign’s land, maybe you can name that sovereign state?

    If Israel is an oppressor state maybe you can explain why they allow the Arabs calling themselves Palestinians autonomy? Why do they provide Gaza with fuel and power? Why don’t they just close the border and let them starve? Would you say that Israel treats its Arab citizens better or worse than, say Idi Amin treated the Acholi and Lango peoples of Uganda in the 70s? Just curious what sort of scale you bring to weigh in on.

    How sickening to see comments about what American politicians do from ignorant/sloganeering/dupes.
