Time for an update after Obama throwing Israel under the bus on May 19, 2011

Reader comment on item: [Christian Zionism:] Israel's Best Weapon?

Professor Pipes:

It's time to update this article with the reaction to Obama throwing Israel under the bus on Thursday.

For example, see Herman Cain and the simple Cain Doctrine, which he clearly espoused in his Presidential campaign announcement (full C-SPAN video):
"If you mess with Israel, you are messing with the United States of America"

Other GOP candidates such as Michele Bachman, Sarah Palin, Willard "Mitt" Romney, (and the above-mentioned Mike Huckabee, who just dropped out) have similar positions.

However, none match Glenn Beck:

  1. Glenn Beck: I Stand Tonight With Israel (video from March 29th, 2011);
  2. Glenn Beck staging a "Restoring Courage" rally… In Jerusalem (article from May 16th, 2011);
  3. Glenn Beck with a whole section on his website devoted to the rally.

Please feel free to use these links in your article.

Disclaimer: I am a Herman Cain supporter.
