New York City - Sarah Palin will speak at next week’s Jewish-sponsored rally reported here by VIN News to protest Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations.

In addition to Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee and Alaska governor, confirmed speakers include U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), an Iranian dissident, a black minister and Jewish leaders, according to a key group organizing the rally, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

“The speakers represent the broad spectrum of American political life,” the group’s executive vice chairman, Malcolm Hoenlein, told JTA.

Asked if there would be someone from the Obama campaign at the demonstration, Hoenlein noted the presence of Clinton as a leading Democrat.

The rally, part of efforts by Jewish groups to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, will be held at 11:45 a.m. Sept. 22. It is expected to draw thousands of participants to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, across from the United Nations

Is anyone else terrified of a candidate who, based on her only interview to date, seems to combine (1) an astonishingly shallow grasp of the major issues facing our country with (2) completely serene confidence, evidencing little internal debate or doubt of any kind? She is like W on steroids.
She's qualified on national security because Alaska is near Russia??!! Apparently not concerned about war with Russian but suddenly gets cagey about Pakistan--one of the biggest emerging threats around today??!! And it's fine for the average person not to have heard of the Bush Doctrine, but given that it has been incessantly written about in all national political publications, left and right, for the past six years, it's a little frightening that she drew a blank on that one.
I really can't think of any explanation for McCain choosing her other than the extra X chromosome.

why did they have to turn this into an election circus? the rally lineup was fine the way it is (and hillary always speaks at these)
the truth is that malcolm hoenlein just wanted to score himself a photo op with sarah palin.
just wait and see - he will make sure to be standing right there near the podium so that when the tv cameras zoom in on palin, his face will be in the frame for everyone to see on the tv news.

1. Which Bush Doctrine? There are at least five of them! BTW - The term was coined by Charles Krauthammer!
2.Of course you are terrified! You are probably a liberal Jew who feels that your promiscuous lifestyle - or at least leanings to - may be attacked. why worry about her? I assume our Torah - you know, the Five Books of Moses? - is even stronger in its view of your beliefs!
3. Get your head out of the sand! And what foreign policy credentials does Obama bring to the table? NADA! That is why he chose Biden (another tachshit)! The reason why presidential nominees choose their Veeps is because they combine their experiences! What McCain is lacking in Conservatism (represented by Palin) is made up through his strong knowledge on foreign policy!
4. Mother, Mayor, Governor, Head of National Guard...
Answer the darn question, liberal freak - WHAT HAS OBAMA DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY???

Reverend Wright? Bill Ayers?

Note the astounding difference between the two conventions: The Democrats promise this, promise that while NEVER DISCUSSING THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!

The Republicans nominees discussed their accomplishments! We want to hear a resume when you apply for a job!

McCain will Not take New York because liberal Jews have "Democrat" ingrained in them for generations. Don't think that they actually believe in Obama. They want what is known as "generic democrat", but they will take anyone with a"D" after their name. Its the easy, don't need to think about the issues way for them. That is slowly changing , but unfortunately probably not in time for this election.

palin has a BA and failed in her dream job as a sports caster.

she is far less qualified than obama - who was already low on the list of qualifications.

Make no mistake about it. Palin is a Republican Obama. She is the GOp golden girl and savior brought onto the ticket simply for hype factor and little else. Even the McCain campaign head said today she couldnt even run a company like hewlett packarsd....and we you want her a heartbeat form being leader of the free world? no way. cynthia mcckinney and bob barr and wayne root and ralph nader have more qualifying experience.

Anon 5:17 PM, yes, since Alaska borders Russia, she has had to deal with the normal border issues; she may not have met Putin, because any issue that got escalated that high would be dealt with by the President, but most border issues stay local and are handled by the state authorities or the National Guard (of which Palin is Commander in Chief).

Jeremiah "G-D DAMN AMERICA" Wright, Tony Rezko and other assorted felons and low lifes. He has ZERO executive experience, in fact Gov. Palin has more executive experience than the other 3 candidates all together.

"There are currently 6 different versions of the Bush Doctrine, so I assume it was perfcetly normal for Gov. Palin to ask Charles Gibson what he exactly ment."

This was a softball question. It was a great opportunity for Palin to discuss her views on unilaterism in foreign policy, on the use of military vs. diplomatic approaches to potentially hostile powers, and on the limits to the US's influence. Biden would have hit it out of the park. Palin struck out looking.


"Reverend Wright? Bill Ayers? "

Reverend Bricker. James Baker.

And Baker is particularly scary. Unlike the other three, he could conceivably have a major role in a McCain administration. McCain himself mentioned him by name as a good middle east negotiator, and flew to Texas to accept Baker's endorsement in person.


"she is the most unqualified person to appear on a national ticket ever in american history"

I wouldn't go that far. 1940 Republican nominee Wendell Willkie had absolutely no political experience whatsoever. (He had been a utility executive.) And 1908 Democratic Vice Presidential nominee John Kern had served four years in the Indiana Senate. But Palin does come close to those.


"Palin is a Christian who hinks all jews should bcome christian memeile voos? "

I am not aware of any evidence that Palin agrees with the minister of her church on this issue. But since the Republicans declared that tarring Obama with Rev. Wright is fair game, we have to ask in fairness why Sarah Palin's attendance at a church that has welcomed the leader of Jews for Jesus twice in the past four years shouldn't be similarly considered.

 Sep 17, 2008 at 12:44 AM Milhouse Says:

Charlie Hall, because there's nothing wrong with a Christian wanting everyone to become Christians too. We pray that everyone in the world should come to recognise the truth of our religion, so we should expect other people to pray for the same thing. If I were a Xian I wouldn't see anything wrong with J4J either.

Meanwhile Wright is an antisemite, anti-American, anti-capitalist, and "anti-middle-class" (in the words of his own church's web site, before it was sanitised), who traveled to meet Ghadaffi, and was one of the main influences on Obama's thinking for 20 years! Obama even named his book for one of Wright's sermons; that's a sure sign of a mentor. Then there was his other mentor, the nutcase Catholic priest Pfelger. And his terrorist friends Ayers and Dohrn; his connection to the Ayers family goes back to before he went to law school, and they "sent" him into Chicago politics.

Nobody is claiming that Obama himself supports terrorism, but obviously he doesn't consider it a big deal, since he is willing to be friends with terrorists. If McCain or Palin had a close friend who was an unrepentant rapist, or an unrepentant Klansman, or a concentration camp guard, that would be the end of their careers, and they wouldn't be able to say that they disapprove of what their friend did but it was many years ago. Now how are Ayers and Dohrn better than rapists or Klansmen or Treblinka guards?

Red Rambo--

I am a regular frum Jew. I do not and have never led a "promiscuous lifestyle." I'll try to me mochel you before YK, but I doubt I'll be able to.

Do you have such a hard time understanding that some Torah Jews might not think that best solution to our problems is to start more wars (worked so well until now, didn't it?), leave the millions of people without health insurance out in the cold, and trash the environment? That aligning ourselves with radical evangelical Christians--who just today declared at their big conference that they need to try harder to convert us--is a bad idea? That promoting our (non)-trickle-down plutocracy of selfishness is harmful? I don't agree with the Democrats on everything, but I am certain that electing the Republicans will lead to more suffering and death--that's why I can't support them.

To respond to some of your specific points, just for kicks:
Please name one major decision Palin ever made as "Commander in Chief" of the Alaska National Guard. I don't think you can.
McCain seems to have a pretty lousy record on foreign policy. For the first year he kept saying Iraq would be a cakewalk, and if he had been president for the last month it seems likely that we would be at war with Russia -- I don't think that would do anybody any good.
If you mention Reverend Wright, I get to mention Hagee and Parsley--whose endorsements McCain sought--and Palin's *current* church, where she just sat through a speech by a J4J guy about converting the Jews. Look at Obama's voting record on Jewish issues, and it is perfectly clean.
Ayers -- you have got to be kidding. He sat on a board with Ayers, who, to his credit, turned his life around and started working for better public schools? Given McCain's long history with the Republicans, you really don't want to go down that road. Did you know that Palin quoted a fascist Jew-hater who wanted FDR assassinated in her convention speech? Let's just not go there.
Obama has done plenty for this country, although his career has been short, given his age. He worked in civil rights law, and spent years as a community organizer--the type of work the leave-it-to-the-private-sector Republicans are *supposed* to like -- except it seems now they really don't give a hoot about poor people. And--look on his website--he has taken the time to put together thoughtful and *detailed* proposals for dealing with the problems of our times -- not the sound-bites and platitudes you get from McCain. Don't believe me -- read them yourself.
Is "accomplishments" really a road you want to go down? When your VP nominee was the mayor of a town less than half the size of Highland Park, NJ (to put it in context for those of us in the tri-state area) and then governor of a state with *one quarter* the population of Brooklyn?! McCain's accomplishments to me seem to consists mainly of mouthing off, sponsoring an occasional bipartisan bill, many of which he has since repudiated, like McCain-Kennedy, and being a two-decade-long cheerleader for deregulation -- until it became politically inexpedient yesterday.
Have a ksiva vachasima tova.

Hey Red Rambo! You are so right!
Let's take a very clear, FACTUAL look at Osama's record. I mean Obama's FRIENDS.
Okay? Here they come!
Reverend Wright who hates America. Obama's first cousin, Odinga who is accused of genocide in Africa, Rashid Khalidi who funds pro Palestinian groups and causes ans and who raised funds for Husein Obama, William Ayers who bombed NYC Police Headquarters in 1970 and thn bombed the Capitol in 1971, and then bombed the Pentagon in 1972 and then, 29 years later when interviewed on the very day of the 9/11/01 attack, said, "I don't reret setting bombs,I feel we didn't do enough." amd the there's Bernadine Dohrn another convicted terrorist, Fatjer Pfleger who hate swhites, the Reverend Al Sharpton (need I say more?), the Reverend Louis Farakhan (need I say more?), Daniel Ortega of the Sandanistas, Tony Rezko an interesting real estate dealer, and many more who allare deeply in love with Jews everywhere.

Political plants drop a load of their stuff and leave a couple of kosher phrases and they're gone to do the same in as many blogs they have prepared for the day as long as they try to get that payback job. They scheme, cheat and fake their way to political hack jobs.
That's why they load up with words like "mochel and ksiva vachasima tova" etc. because they think we will all be fooled.
