Are These GOP Candidates Running For President of the U.S.—or Israel?
By Keith Johnson
Although Sarah Palin was not among the seven Republican hopefuls who participated in the most recent June 13 GOP debates, she would have certainly found herself right at home with other high-profile politicians who have already pledged their allegiance to the Zionist agenda.
Aside from Ron Paul, the current lineup of pseudo-conservative presidential wannabes has demonstrated a biased affection for Israel at the expense of all other international relationships, and even over the best interests of the United States.
These Christian politicians even wear Israeli flag pins, yarmulkas and stars of David—whatever they can to convince Jewish voters and Christian Zionists they are on the side of Israel and “the chosen ones.”
As an example, ahead of declaring his candidacy for a 2012 presidential bid, Mitt Romney made a trip to Israel to stump for an endorsement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The former governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty, has likewise vowed that the United States will “stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel” if he is elected president. He also recently criticized the Obama administration for “an astonishing unwillingness to stand by Israel at the UN.”
Newt Gingrich promises that if he becomes president, he will move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem despite the fact that the international community does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and that Israel agreed, upon the founding of the nation, that Jerusalem would forever remain an open city outside of its direct jurisdiction.
During a recent interview, Herman Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO, stated, “let me tell you what the Cain doctrine would be, as it relates to Israel, if I were president: You mess with Israel, you are messing with the United States of America.”
In 2003, Rick Santorum suggested that federal funding should be cut to American universities that openly criticize Israel.
Last but not least is the most frightening statement of all coming from Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann, who told the Republican Jewish coalition: “I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States. . . .We have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play.”
You can rest assured that no matter which one of these dual loyalists is elected, Israel will continue to receive billions of dollars in foreign aid each year as American taxpayers are left footing the bill and Israel’s leaders will continue to receive standing ovations.
