Joe Sestak asked to look other way when Israel invades Lebanon, PA.
Some of the same wonderful folks from PNAC who encouraged America to take the lemons of 9/11 and make AttackIraqAde are very upset with Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak because Sestak is not supportive enough of Israel County which is located, I believe, in the Middle Eastern part of the state, possibly close to Dauphin:
Leading conservatives will launch a new pro-Israel group this week with a scathing attack on Rep. Joe Sestak, the Democratic Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, the first shot in what they say will be a confrontational campaign against the Obama administration’s Mideast policy and the Democrats who support it.
The Emergency Committee for Israel’s leadership unites two major strands of support for the Jewish state: The hawkish, neoconservative wing of the Republican Party, many of whom are Jewish, and conservative Evangelical Christians who have become increasingly outspoken in their support for Israel. The new group’s board includes Weekly Standard Editor William Kristol and Gary Bauer, the former Republican presidential candidate who leads the group American Values, as well as Rachel Abrams, a conservative writer and activist.
“We’re the pro-Israel wing of the pro-Israel community,” said Kristol.
Now you may think that Pennsylvanians would care more about things like unemployment which hovers around 8.7% (seasonally adjusted to account for Ben Roethlisberger’s staff of bodyguards, wingmen, and rape facilitators) but, no, Pennsylvanians get up every morning and wonder, “Gee. I wonder how America’s greatest ally, Israel, is doing today?” and then they go eat a hearty breakfast of scrapple which is, surprisingly, not very popular in Israel or anywhere else for that matter.
But why is the Emergency Committee for Israel Who Really Love America But Only If It Keeps Dating Israel picking on Joe Sestak?:
The ad attacks Sestak for signing a letter criticizing Israel’s blockade of Gaza while not signing a defense of Israel circulated by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and for appearing at a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations, which it describes as an “anti-Israel organization the FBI called a ‘front group for Hamas.’”
So Sestak had a chance to pledge his eternal love to a nice AIPAC girl who would make a lovely home for him and bear him many children but instead he decided to go out clubbing with that slutty CAIR shiksa instead even though he kinda-sorta of likes Israel:
A spokesman for Sestak, who defeated Sen. Arlen Specter for the Democratic Senate nomination, rejected the ad’s characterization.
“Joe is a strong supporter of the state of Israel. His record is clear on the matter and in stark contrast to his opponent who voted against aid for Israel,” said April Mellody. “Its political silly season so its not surprising these conservatives are trying to distort Joe’s record.”
So Joe likes Israel, he just doesn’t love Israel because he doesn’t understand the dynamic that makes Israel America’s BFF. That is; America gives money to Israel and Israel, in turn, gladly takes it.
Isn’t that what friends (and deadbeat relatives) are for?
