“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.”I really get a kick from their reasoning:
"The administrations of Presidents Nixon, Johnson, Ford, Carter, and Clinton all considered the annexation of land seized in 1967 illegal. President Ronald Reagan took a position that some might be legal, but opposed their expansion. Priot to becoming president, as the Us ambassador the UN, George H.W. Bush called the settlements illegal. His son, President George W. Bush, thought natural growth for existing settlements was fine, but was opposed to new ones."I was brought up on:
"If everyone was jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you do it, too?"So, just because successive American Governments, other foreign leaders, many Israeli politicians and the international and Israeli media all say that the Jewish Historical HolyLand should be judenrein, does that make it right?
The United States hasn't stopped its interference in internal Israeli affairs; it's just getting worse since Barack Hussein Obama became U.S. President. Jerusalem, Israel's Capital City, is suffering from a terrible housing shortage and Obama has the chutzpah to tell it not to build more homes.
Just like in any abusive relationship, a certain amount of the blame goes to the victim who doesn't walk away, doesn't defend itself. Israel and the Jewish People have a dangerous tendency to feel too comfortable in the role of victim. For years I've been saying and writing that we must boycott the official Capital City of any country which does the same to us. We should choose a different city to locate our Israeli Embassy, just like they do. In the United States we could decide that Atlanta, GA, or Trenton, NJ would be just perfect. For Great Britain, how about Liverpool?
Successive American candidates for President have pledged to move the Embassy to Jerusalem, but of course once they win, they never do it. Of course, we have no idea what Palin would do if ever in power, but in the meantime I'm enjoying her rogue statements.
