Bachmann: ‘American Jews Sold Out Israel, Obama’s Anti-Israel Policies Will Hasten End Times’

Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann said that Barack Obama’s toughening stance on Israel will force the nation into an epic war with terrorists aligned with Al-Qaeda. This “final war, destroying and reducing to rubble Israel,” Bachmann told Family Research Council head Tony Perkins during a Mar. 3 radio show, will hasten in the End Times, as written in Revelations.

“I just believe that as believers in Jesus Christ who see the authority of scripture, I believe that the Lord and his strong right arm will have Israel’s back and will be her protector,” Bachmann said, adding that the war to end all wars will take place soon in Israel, the site of apocalyptic biblical battle.

She also claimed that Obama’s lack of support for Israel was predicted in the Bible and is as a telling sign of the End Times. “The nations of the world will come against Israel and the scripture very specifically says all nations,” she said, pointing out that the United States always supported Israel “until recently under President Obama.”

She then slammed the American Jewish community for their support of Obama, despite his lack of concern for the Jewish nation.

“The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support and as recently as last week, forty-eight Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat [sic] senators in the US Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran,” she told Perkins, stressing how the American Jewish community has continually and overwhelmingly offered wide support to Obama and Israel’s enemies.

“This is clearly against Israel’s best interest,” she added. “What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel. They sold out Israel.”
