Sarah Palin wrote a new essay on her, ahem, Facebook page today. I’m actually not one of Sarah’s Facebook Friends, butâ€”luckily for us allâ€”her words are available for all to read.
In short, Palin takes strong shots at the Obama Administration, and warns of the potential of a second Holocaust if Iran gets nuclean weapons. Because Palin is an utter moron (she truly is), it’s hard to take what she says with any seriousness. I honestly question whether she could accurately and precisely explain what happened in the first Holocaust, beyond “Hitler killed a lot of Jews.” Furthermore, her understanding of Israeli-American relations is pathetic. Yes Sarah, we should kiss Israel’s hand no matter what it does … because Israel is Israel, and for the f-ing Rapture to happen we need those wacky Jews.
Truth is, President Obama could decide tomorrow to ban abortion, give all our resources to Israel, change the name of our nation to the United States of Jesus Christâ€”and Sarah Palin would still slam him. That’s politics, 2010 style, and while it makes for good entertainment, it somehow results in me listening to the ceaseless ramblings of a woman who I honestly would not trust to transcribe my interview tapes.
PS: Here’s her essay …
This is a meaningful week for so many of us. As millions of Christians and Jews celebrate this Holy Week, itâ€™s appropriate to reflect on developments in the Holy Land. Israel faces a nuclear threat from Iran that grows every day. Today we learned that the CIA has concluded that Iran already has the capability and the know-how to build nuclear weapons. While President Obama once said a nuclear-armed Iran would be â€œunacceptable,â€ after more than a year in office itâ€™s sobering to have to acknowledge that his administration has made no progress in implementing â€œcripplingâ€ sanctions on Iran, let alone halting Iranâ€™s nuclear program. Even the rhetoric moved in the wrong direction â€“ recently the administration downgraded their call for â€œcripplingâ€ sanctions to sanctions that â€œbite.â€ Shockingly, as we learned last week, these â€œbitingâ€ sanctions will no longer include actions that could actually change Iranâ€™s behavior, including limiting Iranâ€™s access to international capital markets and banking services or closing air space and waters to Iranâ€™s national air and shipping lines. So the issue is not when the so-called sanctions will come (President Obama promised them in â€œweeksâ€ today) but whether they will even â€œnibble.â€ And while the Obama administration was more than willing to use every parliamentary trick in the book to ram its government health care takeover through Congress, conversely, it has worked hard to stall bipartisan efforts to pass the Iran Sanctions Act.
Many, many Americans and our allies know that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, the consequences will be catastrophic for our interests in the Middle East, and we want our government to do everything in its power to prevent Iran from acquiring nukes. We foresee a regional nuclear arms race beginning as other countries seek their own nuclear weapons to protect themselves from Iran. Nuclear non-proliferation efforts would be over. The U.S. and our allies in the international community would be shown to be impotent â€“ after long claiming that Iranian nuclear weapons could not and would not be tolerated. And Israel would face the gravest threat since its creation. Iranâ€™s leaders have repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel and with nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them, the mullahs would be in a position to launch a Second Holocaust.
Iran continues to develop long range missiles. Its missiles can reach Israel and Europe right now and in time they will be able to reach US territory.
This issue is the most serious security challenge facing the U.S. in the region. Yet just as the Obama administration inexplicably gives up on imposing crippling sanctions on Iran, itâ€™s taken an uncompromising hard line against one country in the Middle East: Israel. On his recent visit to Washington, the Israeli Prime Minister was treated like an unwelcome guest, as shown by White House actions such as refusing to be photographed with Israelâ€™s Prime Minister.
Public demands for concessions have been made of the Israelis while the Palestinians add ever more conditions to their participation in peace talks, and those in the administration that dare to argue for looking at these policies through the lens of Israelâ€™s security needs are subject to slanderous attacks
In a week when events in the Holy Land thousands of years ago are on the minds of millions, we would all do well to include Israelâ€™s security in our prayers as we encourage our government to do all it can to ensure there is never a nuclear Iran able to threaten our interests or our allies.
