Palin Completes Zionist Ticket

Sarah Louise Heath Palin (pronounced /ˈpeɪlɪn/; born February 11, 1964) is the governor of Alaska and the Republican vice-presidential nominee in the 2008 United States presidential election.

Sarah Louise Palin (née Heath; born February 11, 1964) is an American politician who served as Governor of the state of Alaska from 2006 until 2009 and was the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States in 2008.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin—John McCain’s dynamic Republican vice presidential running mate—can be counted as a firm advocate for the interests of Israel. In fact, the Alaska governor is so energetically pro-Israel that she displays an Israeli flag in her office, a point that has received widespread attention in the Israeli press and which is now being discussed in pro-Israel journals and newspapers on American soil.

The staunchly pro-Israel “conservative daily,” The Washington Times, unveiled Mrs. Palin’s enthusiasm for Israel in an admiring article on September 4. Declaring that “Palin’s evangelical faith drives pro-Israel view,” the Times’ religion writer, Ralph Z. Hallow, said she is a disciple of the theme that preservation of modern-day Israel is “a biblical imperative.”

Hallow said Mrs. Palin’s religious ideology “makes her a favorite with the staunchly pro-Israel neo-conservative elements in the Republican Party.”

Tucker Eskew, a counselor to Mrs. Palin, affirmed in an interview with the Times that she “would describe herself as a strong supporter of Israel, with an understanding of Israel’s fear of an Iran in possession of nuclear weapons.”

Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, has trumpeted Mrs. Palin’s display of the Israeli flag, noting that “it is very telling” and that it demonstrates that “she has Israel in her heart.”

Mrs. Palin has said that America’s war in Iraq—which was orchestrated by those neo-cons in axis with their allies in Israel—is “a task that is from God.”

Critics say the war was, as former Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-S.C.) candidly asserted, not God’s will, but rather the Bush administration’s “policy to secure Israel.”

Mrs. Palin’s own former pastor, Paul. E. Riley, has announced that shortly after taking office as governor, she consulted him and requested that he counsel her as to a “biblical example of people who were great leaders and what was the secret of their leadership.”

Riley recommended that Mrs. Palin consult the Book of Esther which tells the tale of the young Jewish queen of Persia. Some see this as somewhat ominous, in as much as modern-day Iran—a target of Palin (and Israel’s) ire—was ancient Persia. And, in the Book of Esther, one finds that Queen Esther*—Palin’s role model—engaged in intrigues that resulted in the mass murder of 75,000 Persians who were considered a threat to the Jewish people, just as today’s Iran is likewise perceived as Israel’s greatest danger.

Critics say Mrs. Palin’s hard-line religious enthusiasm for Israel could influence her decision-making, that she could be swayed by her religious beliefs rather than carefully considered national security concerns.

Although Democrats say Mrs. Palin is too inexperienced in foreign policy, she is being tutored on the issues by John McCain’s close friend (and his reported first choice as his preferred vice presidential running mate), Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.). He is one of Israel’s most outspoken American cheerleaders. He was hailed by The Washington Post on September 5 as one of the “experts” responsible for helping steer Mrs. Palin in the right direction on foreign policy. In fact, Lieberman is in charge of the McCain-Palin campaign’s foreign policy. Another Jewish-American “expert” who is guiding her on foreign policy is Stephen E. Biegun.

So, in the estimation of Israel and its adherents, the “right” people are surrounding Mrs. Palin. Even before she addressed her fellow Republicans at the GOP convention, according to the Washington Post, “one of Palin’s few meetings . . . with outside groups was with AIPAC,” the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee. To meet with AIPAC, Mrs. Palin canceled a previously scheduled meeting with the Eagle Forum, the political action group run by Phyllis Schlafly.

A journalist specializing in media critique, Michael Collins Piper is the author of Final Judgment, the controversial “underground bestseller” documenting the collaboration of Israeli intelligence in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He is also the author of The High Priests of War, The New Jerusalem, Dirty Secrets, The Judas Goats: The Enemy Within and The Golem: Israel’s Nuclear Hell Bomb. All are available from AFP: 202-547-5585. He has lectured on these topics in places as diverse as Malaysia, Japan, Iran, Canada, Russia and the United Arab Emirates.

This writer is obviously biased against Israel. I tried to read his article without assuming that he wasn't equating the word "Zionist" with "Conspirator". But clearly he was. Obviously Piper has a prejudice against the Jewish people's long desire to have a homeland. I didn't vote (nor would I ever vote) for Sarah Palin. I thought she was a terrible choice. I agree that fundamentalism has no place in decision making. Many times George Bush seemed to believe that his "closeness" to God meant that he couldn't make an incorrect decision. We all saw how that turned out. Nevertheless, Israel has had the best record for human rights in the entire middle east. Piper should research the human rights violations in countries like Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Egypt and Iran, not to mention within both the Hezbolah controlled towns in Lebanon and the Hamas and Palestinian Authority controlled territories. No democracy is perfect, but like any real democracy, Israel, too has a crucible for its criminals. It's called the Justice system. I wish the same could be said for the other countries in that region. Piper's hate mongering is thinly veiled and I wish that publications like Yoursdaily.com would think twice before giving twisted folks like this a forum.
