Did Palin Attend Anti-Semitic Speech?

Every 15 minutes, there is a new revelation about Palin.  Tonight, an article by Ben Smith in the Politico contained this disturbing report:

An illustration of that gap came just two weeks ago, when Palin’s church, the Wasilla Bible Church, gave its pulpit over to a figure viewed with deep hostility by many Jewish organizations: David Brickner, the founder of Jews for Jesus.

Palin’s pastor, Larry Kroon, introduced Brickner on Aug. 17, according to a transcript of the sermon on the church’s website.

“He’s a leader of Jews for Jesus, a ministry that is out on the leading edge in a pressing, demanding area of witnessing and evangelism,” Kroon said.

Brickner then explained that Jesus and his disciples were themselves Jewish.

“The Jewish community, in particular, has a difficult time understanding this reality,” he said.
Brickner’s mission has drawn wide criticism from the organized Jewish community, and the Anti-Defamation League accused them in a report of “targeting Jews for conversion with subterfuge and deception.”

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.


Pastor Kroon’s caution would make sense if he actually went further and stated “don’t do unto Palin what was done unto Obama.”

Remember, it was just months ago that there was a media frenzy to try and prove Obama was present at one of the sermons containing Rev. Wright’s inflammatory rhetoric. It turned Obama was not present. Yet, that hasn’t stopped the right from claiming guilt by association.

And let’s remember that mere presence for Obama was being raised as a death knell to his candidacy. One wonders if Palin will receive the same treatment? Will Palin be forced to disavow and quit her church as Obama was?
