It’s Israel, stupid

Yup, Michele Bachmann gets it -- and how. Bachmann is a Christian. Christianity owes its existence to Judaism. An unbreakable thread links Judaism, Christianity and America. Israel embodies American and western values. Abandon Israel and you abandon America and destroy the west. That is what Obama is doing. That is what Bachmann – a candidate for the US presidency -- has said in this video. She got to the heart of it -- why the west is going down, why Israel is the key issue of our time, why the drum now being beaten by Obama and the western left against Israel is the very same drum that is being beaten against America and the west itself.
The implications for American politics are crystal clear. Israel should become the driving issue for Republicans. Israel is the issue that, more than any other, illuminates in a pitiless glare the threat that Obama presents to America and the free world. Israel – even more than the economy – is the visceral issue which, presented correctly, could bring Obama down. Why has Bachmann made this video? Because she understands that. This is a smart woman.
