Andrew Sullivan at the Atlantic uncovered a shocking detail about Sarah Palin (one of the now many shocking details), in which she sat in a meeting at the Wasilla Bible Church.

VIDEO HERE of the "Jerusalem Dilemma"

The meeting was headed by David Brickner, the executive director of Jews for Jesus, and here's what he said:

Brickner also described terrorist attacks on Israelis as God's "judgment of unbelief" of Jews who haven't embraced Christianity.

   "Judgment is very real and we see it played out on the pages of the newspapers and on the television. It's very real. When [Brickner's son] was in Jerusalem he was there to witness some of that judgment, some of that conflict, when a Palestinian from East Jerusalem took a bulldozer and went plowing through a score of cars, killing numbers of people. Judgment — you can't miss it."

   Palin was in church that day, Kroon said, though he cautioned against attributing Brickner’s views to her.

John McCain now has a serious Jewish problem, thanks to Sarah Palin's extremist creationist views, which may cost him Florida, and several other states when these views, supported by Sarah Palin, become very well known.

Sarah Palin is no friend to the Jewish community, and neither is John McCain, in having picked this Dominionist as his Vice-President.

Edit: Here's the audio of the sermon at Wasilla Bible Church.

Here's some of the transcript from Brickner's speech (Click on that link and save the transcript because it'll be soon gone when they scrub this site):

And the Bible tells us the entire generation of Israelites perished in the wilderness because of unbelief.  And that has characterized the ministry of the prophets.  They’ve all experienced that rejection.  

And so Jesus, now coming in fulfillment of all the hope and all the promise of all the prophets, is not taken off guard by that.  He is likely, obviously, to experience...and will soon experience...that same unbelief, full force, in His own body.  And I’ve heard people talk about this reality of history, and talk about the ‘stiff-necked Jews’.  Have you heard that phrase before?  The stiff-necked Jews...  Well, God was the one who first used that about Israel, and He can get away with it.  But my mother always told me, "Be careful when you point a finger at somebody else, because there’s some pointing back at you."  And really, Israel has not cornered the market on unbelief.  Israel is an example of what all humanity has been saying to God since the beginning of time, shaking its fists at the heavens and saying, ‘You’ll not rule over us.’  

And so all of the controversy that we see swirling in Jerusalem is really a mirror that the world looks in to see the controversy within.  The Jerusalem Dilemma is the Wasilla Dilemma; it’s the dilemma of the human heart.  And so it’s important for us to notice, then, Jesus’ response to this unbelief, this rejection.

McCain-Palin campaign spokesman Goldfarb said that Brickner "was a guest at the church who Gov. Palin did not know would be speaking, and she does not share the views he expressed. She and her family would not have been sitting in the pews of the church if those remarks were remotely typical."

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
