Print Friendly and PDF

In the Michele Bachmann video below, the Minnesota congresswoman delivers a powerful speech in support of Israel with cogent arguments and a passion that emanates from her core system of values. As I listened to the speech, I became convinced that her support and love for Israel is a deep part of her essence and will never change. A few excerpts appear below the video.

                                          Keynote address at the Bet El Institutions Dinner
                                           Marriott Marquis in Times Square, Dec. 2, 2012

Speech Excerpts:

14:00 Leaving Gaza seven years ago, which I fervently opposed… I was weeping on my bed as I saw Israel leaving and surrendering Gaza because I knew what would happen. I knew that the events of the last month [ed. The shelling of Israel from Gaza] would come about.

14:49 “Our current administration continues to demand that Israel gives even more and calls on them to concede even more. This is nothing more than foolishness and, in my opinion, suicidal for the State of Israel.

15:13 “But we must recognize there is simply no moral equivalency between a sovereign country like Israel that follows the rule of law and a terrorist organization that uses women and children as human shields and openly celebrates in the streets when a bus filled with Israeli civilians is bombed in the streets of Tel Aviv.

19:27 "Eleven minutes after Israel declared her sovereignty , then President Harry Truman did the wisest thing, and the bravest thing he could have possibly done on behalf of our nation. He wisely recognized the sovereign State of Israel’s existence… And every president since Harry Truman has unequivocally submitted and affirmed that support for Israel, as we well should... [Regarding Obama] Starting four years ago... the President sent numerous signals that the US commitment for Israel is anything but certain…

7:45 “Growing up for me, G-d’s promises to the ancient Israelites, as Eugen [Gluck] said, were very near to my heart. Which is why I took the first opportunity that I could to go to Israel as a young woman. You see, the day after I graduated from high school, I flew on El Al Israel Airlines to Tel Aviv and I went to work for the summer at Kibbutz Be'eri in Beer Sheva…

  1. She is truly a great lady. I've had the pleasure of meeting her many times. She is also a great Tea Party Leader in the US Congress and the movement nationwide.
    May G-d Bless Mrs Bachmann and Israel.
    We alway's pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    Ken, Columbia.S.C. USA.

  2. This was an inspiring speech, and a great honor to Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael and Torat Yisrael. The Jew who introduced Cong. Bachmann, however, dishonored all three with that public kiss -- twice -- to a friend, who is noneless a Gentile woman. With all due respect to our friends and allies, he crossed a line into something inappropriate. Did he think he was recapitulating the kiss between Yaakov and Eisav?

    1. I find your objection trivial and silly. Please curb your fussiness. Such is no light unto the nations.

  3. Michelle Bachmann is a true blessing for the U.S. and Israel. She is a true American and true christian. Her speech was far better and biblical than any pastor's sermon! I support and bless the State of Israel. Am Ysrael Chai!
