Mitt Romney Prays at Western Wall in Jerusalem (Video)

Jerusalem- The Wailing Wall
June 7, 1967


Sometime around 10:15 on the morning of June 7, 1967…
The first reservist paratroopers of Brigade 55 broke through the Lion’s Gate leading into the Old City of Jerusalem and reached the narrow enclave of the Western Wall. Having just fought a fierce two-day battle in the streets of east Jerusalem, they grieved for lost friends, and grieved as well for their own lost innocence in what for many was their first experience of combat. They leaned against the Wall, some in exhaustion, some in prayer. Several wept, instinctively connecting to the Wall’s tradition of mourning the destruction of the Temple and the loss of Jewish sovereignty—precisely at the moment when Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem had been restored.

Several hours later, Yitzhak Yifat, a twenty-four-year-old reservist about to begin medical school, reached the Wall. As part of the brigade’s 66th Battalion, he and his friends had fought in the Six Day War’s toughest battle: Intimate combat against elite Jordanian Legionnaires in the trenches of Ammunition Hill, on the road to Mount Scopus.

    While Romney was not my first choice,(Michele Bachamn was) I am firmly committed to voting for him as not voting would be a vote for the Marxist.
    That said, he is looking better and better as time goes on.

    That was a moment!

    Romney: Jerusalem Capital of Israel

    […..]Romney is not Obama on Israel. He doesn’t believe Israel was based on the Holocaust alone. He doesn’t think that Israel’s status as a moral force in the Middle East is in question. He doesn’t think Israel ought to be forced into concessions to terrorists:

    To step foot into Israel is to step foot into a nation that began with an ancient promise made in this land. The Jewish people persisted through one of the most monstrous crimes in human history, and now this nation has come to take its place among the most impressive democracies on earth. Israel’s achievements are a wonder of the modern world.

    These achievements are a tribute to the resilience of the Israeli people. You have managed, against all odds, time and again throughout your history, to persevere, to rise up, and to emerge stronger. [……]

    DHS Prepares for Civil Unrest as Obama Poised to Destroy 2nd Amendment

    Part of the preparatory measures was an order of 150 sets of riot gear that was requested to be filled exponentially – within 15 days.

    And use of drones.

    For comparison …Obama arrived in the darkness of 5:00 am…touched the wall for 3 seconds. His prayer was then removed in desecration of the ritual. Prayers are supposed to be burned or buried but Obama’s was sold to a newspaper …>

    someone should juxtapose that image of Romney in solemn prayer at the Wailing Wall – with Obungle’s visit to Libya dressed in arab garb with a flower pot on his micro-cephalic noggin
