So How Come Sarah Palin Hasn't Been Invited to Israel Yet?

Pamela Geller alerted me to a report on

the formation of an organization called Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin.

Plans for the new group are set to be announced on Sunday by a Philadelphia-based journalist and activist named Binyamin Korn, a former executive director of the Zionist Organization of America...The group also hopes to counter suggestions — by, among others, such opposite figures as the widely read Atlantic magazine blogger Jeffrey Goldberg and the left-of-center, anti-Israel publication Counterpunch — that Mrs. Palin’s support for Israel is animated by “end of days” theology that believes an in-gathering in Israel will precede the apocalypse and the destruction of the Jews.

Mr. Korn dismisses such talk, saying that there is “a wide range of views about religion within the Jewish Community and an even wider range of views about religion in the Christian community” and that “whatever motives Governor Palin may have or may be imputed to her are entirely within the mainstream of American discourse . . .” He said his group was encouraged by a defense of Mrs. Palin in an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal by the most famous neo-conservative, Norman Podhoretz, who wrote that he would “rather be ruled by the Tea Party than by the Democratic Party” and “would rather have Sarah Palin sitting in the Oval Office than Barack Obama.”

What Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin is saying, Mr. Korn said, “is that the most articulate person in the public arena today in opposition to the Obama administration’s shift in policies against Israel is Sarah Palin.” He called her “very direct,” particularly on the controversy of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, on terrorism policies, and on the emerging Obama doctrine...

I have been in contact with some people and asked if anyone is trying to arrange for a visit of Mrs. Palin to Israel and specifically to inform her on the reasons why Israel needs her help and why the Jewish communities deserves her support in addition to her natural inclinations, as she said in her interview last November:

ABC quotes Gov. Palin as saying Obama is wrong to oppose settlement expansion, an ongoing issue that is dimming the chances for progress on peace between Palestinians and Israelis.

"I disagree with the Obama administration on that," Palin said. "I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand."

Whether she believes our communities will grow due to God or plain old Zionism is a very good base to build on. There are many other good reasons and she should be hear to see, learn and be impressed by all the factors: geopolitical, ideological, legal rights, military and more.

So, when is she coming?

Palin could care LESS about Jewish people. The woman is a narcissistic despicable example of what it is to be a woman. Historically, radical nutjob Christians like her have done more HARM to Jewish people than all the Muslims & Nazis combined. I am disgusted how naive and how ignorant some Jewish people are when it comes to these christian evangelicals who again, are anti-Semite in their cores. This whole new scam of evangelicals all suddenly loving Israel is all some new BS and is just another British scam to get rid of Jewish people from their European lands and residence & mingle with Arab desert dwellers (hence kick them out of their lands at the time). Pls STOP being so naive and be true to yourselves, truth is ABOVE all else.

Sarah Palin is one of the greatest American supporters for Jews today even though she been trashed by Jews in Hollywood and in the media,she remains a solid supporter and loyal friend to Jews.I am really glad that some in the Jewish community are starting to wake up and appreciate her,the "American Jews for Sarah Palin' group is a great start to building a relationship between Sarah Palin and the Jews.
Jews who fear Sarah Palin are Jews who are not educated in Judaism,once they take classes and understand their religion they will understand why they shouldn't fear her Christian beliefs. The American Christian evangelical community has been very different from Christians in other parts of the world. One of their core belief is that "those who bless Jews will be blessed and those who curse Jews will be cursed" and that message is consistent with Judaism. They actually believe that America has been blessed in part because of their good relationship with Jews. Their other belief of messianic end of time is not consistent with Judaism,if Jews believe with complete faith in Judaism than their messianic message should not matter.

Deo,there is nothing wrong with Sarah Palin demanding a $100,000 speaking fee,it just shows what a great business woman she is and why do you care if people are willing to pay to see her,after all we are free to spend our money as we wish . Our horrible economy needs a great business woman like her,America has been known for it's great entrepreneurs and she has proven to be one of them. Americans differ from Europeans who associate money with evil ,Americans actually understand that it can be
a great force that helps improve our lifestyle and the world.
