A President of the United States who volunteered on a Kibbutz in Israel?

When Americans go to the polls in November 2012, they may have the opportunity to elect a President who volunteered on a Kibbutz in the summer of 1974. No, not Barack Hussein Obama. Michele Bachmann.
Her faith led her to some interesting places. The summer after she finished high school, Michele went to Israel and worked on a kibbutz. The trip was sponsored by Young Life, a Christian ministry. “I always had this love and appreciation for Israel because I was a Christian,” she said. “It’s the foundation of our faith. All of the Bible is about Israel.” She wanted to see the land for herself. What she found wasn’t a high-end vacation destination. She remembers the hurly burly of Ben Gurion airport, 1974: heat, soldiers with guns, customs officers at card tables on the tarmac. Chickens were everywhere. “It was pretty grubby,” she said.

The youth housing on the kibbutz was called the ghetto. Lizards climbed the walls. She would wake up at 4 a.m. and get on a flatbed truck that was pulled by an old diesel tractor. They would drive out to cotton fields to pull weeds. Armed soldiers escorted them wherever they went.

The experience has never left her mind. “If you consider what it was like in 1948,” she said, “and literally watch flowers bloom in a desert over time—I don’t know if any nation has paralleled the rise of Israel since 1948.” A member of Christians United for Israel, she’s one of Israel’s strongest supporters in Congress. One Jewish Minnesota Republican has told me of speeches at local Republican Jewish Coalition events where Bachmann has brought cheering audiences to their feet.
Read the whole thing. But don't worry. The Leftist Jews will still vote against her because she's a Christian.

Obama is a Christian and leftist Jews voted for him. Clinton too. This is a gross distortion.

It’s not because Bachman is Christian, but because of her links to CUFI and all it stands for. Their agenda for either the USA or the Middle East is not benign. As Max Blumenthal says,
“Christian Zionists will be our biggest enemies one day” and he is rarely wrong on anything to do with these people.

Laud leftist Jews for rejecting paganism and idolatory!

Assuming Bachman became President, lay your point by point what you think she would do regarding Israel.
