The Daily Show on pandering to Israel

Yesterday I wrote about all the Republican candidates (minus Ron Paul) falling over themselves to pander to the Republican Jewish Coalition. Jon Stewart has some clips from the event.

Israel is just another "son of a bitch". The alleged quote of Roosevelt still applies.

Israel is to the US what Cuba was to the Soviet Union: the US's foothold near it's chosen "enemy's" home, a place to put nuclear weapons and being its ideological aggression. First it was the USSR and now the countries with "our oil under their sand".

Anyway, how much of this "US support" is really guilt over the Nazis? Not much, I'd wager. It was the US which willingly sent the St. Louis back to Europe condemning a thousand jews to the gas champbers. And then there's the fundamentalist christian glee with Israel being destroyed first during the mythical armageddon. They certainly seem to be looking forward to it.

Part of the US support for Israel is also the belief that the Jews' return to Israel is one of the conditions that must be met for Christ's return.
