Bachmann, Beck and Palin increase their support for Israeli aggression

It took Republican congresswoman and Tea Party icon Michele Bachmann less than 24 hours after President Obama's Middle East address to launch an attack on him. On May 19, 150,000 residents in Iowa and South Carolina received robo-calls from Bachmann, accusing Obama of not standing up for Israel...

Within the Tea Party, Bachmann is at the forefront of those making Israel a key part of her agenda. In her speech at the high-profile Faith & Freedom Conference held in Washington in early June, Bachmann termed Obama's call for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict based on Israel's 1967 boundaries and mutually agreed land swaps "shocking." She followed up by buying ads on Jewish websites reiterating this message.

Bachmann is not alone. Attacks on Obama's Israel policy have come from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, known as the Tea Party's biggest draw.

Pundit Glenn Beck, a vocal critic of the Obama presidency, has been devoting much of his airtime lately to the issue of Israel. He recently announced plans to hold a "Restoring Courage" rally August 20 in Jerusalem. At this gathering, modeled on his rally last summer that called for patriotic unity in Washington, Beck intends to call for Americans to "courageously stand with Israel."

These voices currently appear to be dominating discourse on Israel within the Tea Party, overshadowing the more isolationist views of such Israel critics as Rand Paul and his father, Ron Paul, a declared 2012 presidential candidate....

Watched the GOP debate the other night. Ron Paul was the ONLY anti-war candidate and the ONLY one that consistently based his answers on the US Constitution. The rest of them were too happy to continue drone bombings in countries we are not at war with.

Out of a total of 7 supposed conservatives in the debate, only 1 of them espoused conservative principles.

The Tea Party was started by Ron Paul originally. But our Zionist-controlled government decided to infiltrate the Tea Party with Palin and other neocons. Now Bachmann.
Vote for Ron Paul. The Zionist-owned Republican Party and the Zionist-owned MSM are doing everything in their power to discredit him.
His Achilles Heel is that he wants to audit the Zionist-owned Federal Reserve, let Israel fight and fund its own wars, stop the Zionists' "War on Terror" (that is a main reason why this country is going bankrupt, or already is), bring the troops home to protect us from foreign invaders....
The Zionists who own us are promoting their Palins, Bachmanns, Pawlentys, Gingriches,... etal, and the Zionists' MSM is going right along with it.

As a fiscal conservative who leans liberal and as the first candidate of the Citizens of Conscience Party running for U.S. House Representative, Ending the Occupation of Palestine and ensuring Equal Human Rights for all people is foremost on my global agenda.

I believe the content of this article that was published 6-18-2011 can be used to explain why we are going to war with Libya. Here is an excerpt:

In ravaged Libya, ghosts of a Jewish past
TRIPOLI, Libya – What was once the most beautiful synagogue in Libya's capital city can now be entered only by sneaking through a hole smashed in a back wall, climbing over dusty trash and crossing a stairwell strewn with abandoned shoes to a space occupied by cooing pigeons.
The synagogue, Dar al-Bishi, was once the center of a prosperous Jewish community, one whose last remnants were expelled decades ago in the early days of Moammar Gadhafi's regime.
Inside Libya, little trace of them remains. Abroad, however, surviving members and descendants of the community are very much alive, watching with fascination from afar as Gadhafi's forces and a NATO-backed rebel insurgency battle for control of a country some of them still see as home.
"I have somewhat mixed feelings. I am sympathetic to people who want him out," said Libya-born Gina Bublil-Waldman, referring to the embattled dictator.
But Bublil-Waldman, who heads an organization of Jews from Arab countries in San Francisco, said she was still angry and hurt by the memory of her family's expulsion from Libya. Those feelings remained strong, she said, and at this point she "would be afraid to go."
Navit Barel, a 34-year-old Israeli of Libyan descent, said the upheaval made her want to visit the country where her parents were born. Her mother and father, now deceased, both grew up near the Dar al-Bishi synagogue.
Libyan Jews seem proud of their heritage and even nostalgic for their ancestral home. But they are also bitter at the mistreatment they suffered at the hands of Libyan Muslims and at the eventual elimination of an ancient native community in a wave of anti-Jewish violence linked to the rise of the Zionist movement and the creation of Israel...
