A Strong and Beautiful Principle, Even If One Not Supported by Facts

Abby Zimet

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
play." She herself in her "private Bible time" is working her way through Isaiah, she told the Republican Jewish Coalition, who must number, what, 17 people? 

"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
