Bachmann: God will ‘curse’ America if it opposes Israel
Michele Bachmann, the outspoken conservative House representative from Minnesota, says the United States will cease to exist if it "fails to stand" with Israel.

"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," Bachmann said at a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Los Angeles on Feb. 6.

Bachmann went on to explain that God's special relationship with Israel means the US would be cursed if it were to oppose Israeli policies.

"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," Bachmann said.

3. So she's calling down a curse on the heads of the American people?
Couldn't that be considered treason?

19. Palin’s Flag Pin Problem?
<snip>

"This little tidbit in the Washington Post about Sarah Palin’s “Tea Party Convention” speech caught my eye.

She wore a fitted black suit, black hose and high black platform heels. She had on three opera-length strands of pearls, two white and one multi-colored. In her lapel, a small pin with two flags — for Israel and the United States.


Look, it’s a pretty open secret that Palin intends to run for President in 2012. That being the case, I’m surprised this hasn’t caught more attention. I can’t think of any major politician who openly wears the flag of foreign power–especially to a political event. A little digging indicates that in her brief term as Governor of Alaska, she also displayed an Israeli flag in her office.

Now, I personally don’t have any problem with showing support for Israel, which is, after all, one of our allies. But openly wearing a foreign flag at political events and displaying a foreign flag in the governor’s office does beg the question of whether Palin herself feels that she might feel like she owes loyalty to two different nations–or at the very least, to the alliance of the two countries above."

20. I would still be opposed to Israel's policies with respect to the U.S.S. Liberty
were it not for the US being cursed for opposing being attacked. :P
