It is interesting that loyalty to another country by politicians is a no-no...unless Israel is involved.

No longer even bothering to hide it, are they?

Ready for a US president who puts Israel before America?

Tel you what, Mr. Perry: MY faith requires me to stand up against criminal, racist regemes like Israel and the corrupt politicos who manipulate religion to fill their pockets.

OK?

The establishment is hoping that Rick Perry will win all the votes that are turned off by Ron Paul's stance on Iran and Israel even though his stance towards Israel would actually help Israel more so than Rick Perry's. If the elite were smart they would have Rick Perry come out and declare abortions free for all. They're probably not that gutsy though.

Now why are you assuming he will put Israel before America from this article? All he said is his faith requires him to support Israel as opposed to not supporting them.

He never mentioned in in relation to his belief in America.

Another not yet brave enough to pass beyond religions. At many points along the sojourn, each of us are offered the opened Door but so very many rather dwell in the comfort of a religion.

Or so many would rather take campaign money from a lobby that supports Israel to the detrement of acutal US interests..

I very much doubt his beliefs play a role one way or the other.

I'm with Kro on this one. I am not for supporting Israel myself, nor do I like Rick Perry. However I don't see the same thing you see when looking at what he said. He said his religious beliefs require him to support the state of Israel. Why are you creating a dichotomy where supporting israel automatically equals not supporting America?

This is becoming a dangerous trend. More and more the signs are pointing to the fact that the elite are caring less and less about hiding the fact that one world fascism under Zionist banker control is the gameplan. Anybody whose "faith requires" ANYTHING is a dangerous lunatic psychopath that needs to be marginalized and not given control of anything, especially a country. But I guess being a dangerous lunatic psychopath is what attracted him to the president selectors at Bilderberg.

The Commander in Chief must have loyalty completely to the United States.

If there was a situation in which acting in a way that is not beneficial to Isreal would be beneficial to the USA, it is the President's duty to help the US at the expense of Israel. If the President has a religious committment to another nation that would prevent him from acting in the best interests of the US, he is unfit for president.

Perry is not religious. He is a psychopath. Big difference.
To get and keep the MSM on his side he HAS to support Israel, and by support of course, we mean the foreign aid.
And, don't expose them for what they are, that would be bad. Bad for your "religion" Perry....

How much cash do we piss away to Israel every year that could be used to stimulate our own economy? So, yeah, supporting Israel means not supporting America, even if you want to pretend it's just some sort of ideological difference.

Man, this is getting to be easy with all of the candidates disqualifying themselves from my consideration. Bachmann wants to take away my freedom to view porn - She's OUT! Perry supports Israel because his "Faith" requires him to - He's OUT! Keep going gang. I suspected early on that Paul was my guy and at this rate, he's going to be the last guy standing.

Something is just not right about the facade I see. Maybe I just need to cut back on the caffeine. It may all be me.

No, its not you.
It is the fact that Perry knows that people don't look very deep into issues. They don't know what Perry has done in Texas, and a lot of people in TEXAS don't know what Perry has done to Texas. Let's just say Big Business has done very well in Texas, while farmers lose their lands among other things.
Perry just recently "found" religion, how convenient. He has a sponsor now, well two, God and Israel.

What I don't understand is why Christians feel such and affiliation with Jews. I confess, all I think I know about Judaism is from what I read in the Old Testament, so I don't know how accurate my impression of the Jewish faith is. But it seems to me that what Christ taught is very different from both the Jewish faith of his day and the Jewish faith of today. If Christ were alive today and living in Israel, would he be supporting their policies?

Then again, I think there are very few real Christians in American politics today. How could a true follower of Christ support war and torture?

Brainwashing my friend. Most Christians are COMPLETELY oblivious that judaism is the only abrahamic religion that does not adhere to the belief of an after-life; no heaven, and no hell, unlike christianity and islam, the other two abrahamic religions that do. There's more reverence for The Christian Jesus by muslims than there is by the jewish religion.

"someone" has got christians thinking muslims are some crazy Allah worshiping terrorist types, when really muslims believe in the same god that christians do, just call him by another name.

Muslims and Christians belief in monotheism, Jews do not, as evident in a scripture of the torah telling of the making of humans by more than one "god."

This polytheism, along with a lack of belief in karma, or an afterlife is why judaism is considered a heathen religion from what I've read.

To me, all religion is bunk, but if it gives hope, and organizes to help better a place, go for it, but seems like some religions are just taking advantage of the meek minds that feel spiritually down trodden.

The concern may come from, when one is religious, they incorporate religious ambition in their efforts to resolve, and if anything 'unholy' happens to/in Israel, Perry may decide it is in God's best interest to involve us in the debacle. That's where the danger lies, imo. To 'support' Israel may include defending it too, and dragging us into more mid-east turmoil at a cost that we cannot afford.

How come you didn't leave under Bush? Or why not leave now? Obama is technically a far right nut. I think you people are hating on Perry simply because he's good looking.

Did his "faith" make him sign that Gardasil order, requiring young girls to get the vaccine--and accepting $6,000 from Merck in the process?? I don't believe for a New York minute that he's a Christian at all.
