Senator Paul recently traveled to Israel for the first time, seeking to address concerns about his stance, in particular among evangelicals.

He backed the stance of the conservative Israeli government on settlements, and after returning, he told the conservative media outlet Breitbart.com that an attack on Israel should be considered an attack on the United States.

Republican US senator-elect Marco Rubio of Florida, a darling of the archconservative "Tea Party" movement, heads to Israel this weekend for a private visit, his spokesman said Friday.

"Senator-elect Rubio and his wife Jeanette will be making a private and personal visit to the Holy Land next week," Alex Burgos told AFP by email, stressing that details of the trip "will be kept private."

"Senator-elect Rubio is also working with pro-Israel supporters to make an official trip back to Israel early next year after he is sworn into office," said Burgos.

Mitt Romney arrived in Israel Saturday night, the second leg of his foreign tour. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee is hoping for a warmer reception there than he got in London, where his comments about Britain's Olympic readiness caused a bit of an uproar.

Romney will meet Sunday with senior Israeli officials, including President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Romney calls an "old friend."

The high-stakes trip is a chance for Romney to show Americans he can handle complex foreign policy matters-and also to showcase his support for Israel to Jewish voters back home.

Where teabagger loyalties lie?

If teabaggers had their way, Israel would be America's 51st state.

The republican Party is in total disarray, and once President Obama finishes with them our mission of seeing the end of the GOP will be complete… the 2012 Elections saw the beautiful sight of a republican Party that had completely imploded as President Obama said,“Please; proceed”… LOL!

The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv on Wednesday reported that Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu told an audience at Bar Ilan university that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks had been beneficial for Israel.

"We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq," Ma'ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events "swung American public opinion in our favor."

On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public. The USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died.

After surveilling USS Liberty for more than nine hours with almost hourly aircraft overflights and radar tracking, the air and naval forces of Israel attacked our ship in international waters without warning. USS Liberty was identified as a US naval ship by Israeli reconnaissance aircraft nine hours before the attack and continuously tracked by Israeli radar and aircraft thereafter. Sailing in international waters at less than five knots, with no offensive armament, our ship was not a military threat to anyone.

The Israeli forces attacked without warning and without attempting to contact us. Thirty four Americans were killed in the attack and another 174 were wounded. The ship, a $40-million dollar state-of-the-art signals intelligence platform, was later declared unsalvageable and sold for scrap.

Repuplicans/Neocons and Teabaggers:

Pandering to those who hate America for over 50 years.

It was no different than attacking wrong ships in WWII by British and Ameican forces. It happens, they thought it was Egyptian, Israel has paid millions to the families as reparations.

We haven't recieved a penny from those bastards that bombed the US Embassy in Narobi, the Air Force Barracks in Saudi, the Marine Barracks in Beruit, the Cole or 9/11. NOT one fkn dime.

We see where the dems continue to pander to them. They're building back up again..........after W killed and captured much of their base. Pathetic.

Sure it benifited them, dummy. But it was the islamic radicals that planned and carried it out. It allowed Americans to see what the islamic fundamentalists are capable of doing. LMAO

I felt safer in Israel then I did when I visted Caifornia, by the way, clown.

On 9/11, the Israelis were deeply saddend and sent envoys to assist. The Palestians danced and gave candy to their chilren in a muslim celebration.. Your boy nobama is still giving millions to the Hammas and Hezbollah. Congrats on your idiocy.
