"I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand."
Palin, it has been observed by her ardent Christianist supporters:
[a]ll the while Sarah Palin was attending the House of God to hear from the Scriptures, receiving well-deciphered Christian doctrine. She and family were taught that the Bible is the infallible divine revelation. They accepted by faith saving grace through Christ Jesus.
In the Alaska church the Word was set forth as endorsing the Judeo-Christian heritage of this nation. The congregation heard sermons such as Pastor Pepper’s, lifting high God and country. The nation, in other words, was accountable to the God of the Bible and the God of the Bible would bless an obedient public.
What the Palins heard from the Christian pulpit was at the other end of the spectrum from the theological trash decimated weekly from the Chicago cult political plant.
So how much territory does Sarah Palin's belief in biblical inerrancy hold " the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon"? According to Genesis Chapter 15: Verses 18-21, it is this big:
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates - the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."
Here's a map distributed in 2001 to Israelis that graphically illustrates those borders: Tied together with Palin's statement in the Barbara Walters interview, "More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead," one should be aware what all this means to the CW. This woman, when mayor of Wasilla had not one, not two, but three complete sets of the Tim LaHaye-Jerry B. Jenkins BiblePorn series, Left Behind, ordered for the Wasilla Public Library. Last time I was in there, they were in a bookcase on the stairway leading from the bottom to the main floor of the building. The series describes the horrible deaths of all Jews who don't convert to Palin's kind of Christianity.
The term "Israel's right to exist" and what that actually means is often confusing, especially with the ongoing expansion of Israel's illegal West Bank settlements. I've taken it to mean that Israel had and has a right to live within the pre-June 1967 borders. Palin's belief system, though, requires Israel to gobble up all of Lebanon and Jordan, the Sinai and eastern Egypt - including east bank Cairo, half or more of Syria, and northwestern Iraq.
Until that happens, Palin's belief system mandates, Biblical prophecy has been left unfulfilled.
This is just a part - important as it is - of why I call her "the Crazy Woman."
