Citing godly exhortations – always a tricky tack – Minnesota's wacko Rep. Michele Bachmann said last week that U.S. support for Israel is handed down from on high, and without it "there is a curse that comes into

"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
