Michele Bachmann to Receive False Denunciations

Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann told Tony Perkins on the Family Research Center’s radio channel that many American Jews had “sold out Israel” by voting for President Obama in 2008 and 2012 which will bring on her accusations of anti-Semitism. Where the Jews voting for President Obama in 2008 could claim they were unaware of his stance on Israel, after his first six months in the White House, President Obama’s hatred, vindictiveness and malice for Israel was unmistakable to anybody paying even the slightest attention. President Obama dove into the Arab-Israeli peace process standing firmly in his intent to uplift and liberate the downtrodden and victimized Palestinians. President Obama acted in complete lockstep concurrence with the misconception that the Israelis were the sole blameworthy entity in the desperation and despondence of the Palestinian people which was locking millions of refugees, refugees only by the warped definitions of UNRWA, in decrepit and rundown camps removed from civilization and forbidden to hold most positions of employment or own property. It was working from this misconception that President Obama has pursued policy exclusively for the first year plus where he made edicts of positions that even the Palestinians themselves had dared not pursue. President Obama was the inventor of the idea of an Israeli building freeze, the return to the 1949 Armistice Lines, the surrender of East Jerusalem including all the holy sites and dismissing those who complained that under his ideas the Jews would be removed from many holy places as they had been before 1967 by Jordan.

 

Representative Michele Bachmann further stated, “The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support, and as recently as last week, 48 Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter…to the Democrat Senators in the U.S. Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran. This is clearly against Israel’s best interest and what has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel.” She concluded, “They sold out Israel.” And the report by Slate.com that Bachmann also described to Perkins her conviction that End Times, as predicted in the Bible, were coming. As proof, she pointed to Obama’s “threatening” of the Jewish state adding, “The nations of the world will come against Israel and the scripture very specifically says all nations,” Bachmann said. “[F]or the United States, we don’t have that experience until recently under President Obama with the United States not standing with Israel.” This last part will be used to prove that she is an off the wall Evangelical End Times fanatic who sees everything through her slanted interpretation of the New Testament.

 

Where everything Representative Bachmann said is based in fact, her statements will also be judged by those very same American Jews who she was revealing had placed the Democrat Party in general and President Obama in particular ahead of what is best for Israel, the Jewish homeland. What I can personally attest to is that she has a valid set of points even if these truths are difficult for some who see themselves through glasses which alter reality to fit their own conceptions even to the point of holding contrary ideals and thoughts. The one difficulty I faced in the United States was as a conservative and a Zionist I was unable to find a synagogue where I was accepted, especially since I am unabashed about my feelings and beliefs the world be damned, and often I was. Now, in Israel, I find where all the other American Jews who agree with much of my politics had gone, they are here living happily in Eretz Yisroel. Still, the American Jewish mainstream organizations are often liberal or leftist first and only Jewish either in crisis or if it does not contradict their political beliefs. Representative Bachmann is brave to have stated these facts but she is no stranger to controversies, much to her credit. I feel a sympathetic kinship for her views as I have often faced the barbs, slings and arrows from fellow Jews in the United States. The only mitigating news I can tell, and it is mostly a secret, there are more American Jews who are conservative and vote for conservative and Constitutional principles and do not give blanket support to the Democrat Party than most believe. I would meet these fellow Jews in quiet whispers when we were away from prying ears and eyes as to be seen speaking with the outspoken conservative Zionist Constitutionalist heartless person next to whom you never sit in Synagogue except on High Holy Days due to lack of empty seats as to be seen speaking with me could cast one as one of them. The Rabbi, G0d bless him, in my last synagogue did speak with me as it is part of his duties to make everyone feel welcome. The surprise which was likely as much a surprise for him was we agreed on many if not most principles and only varied in method of attaining them. He saw everything as a communal project and then slipped from communal to government where I would not make that connection and instead believed in the individual to do good if left alone and with sufficient resources by government. All I can do is offer my credit and sympathy to Representative Bachmann for speaking truthfully, an act that is almost always guaranteed to get you thrown into a pit full of accusations and disparages.
