Rep. Mike Pence: Israel Should Dictate U.S. Policy

By Gregg Carlstrom

February 09, 2010 "The Majlis" - -February 4, 2010 -- Matt Duss flagged this video of Rep. Mike Pence (R-Indiana), a senior member of the Republican leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives, talking to the Christian Broadcasting Network about why he unquestioningly supports Israel.

3 Minute Video

Pence is literally saying, Israeli officials should tell us what they want us to do, and we'll support it. That's an insane premise, and if you replace "Israel" with any other country, no U.S. politician would accept it.

I'm pretty pessimistic about Obama's Middle East policies -- but it's worth remembering that Obama has to work within the confines of the U.S. political system, and there's broad bipartisan consensus for Pence's views on Israel (as he notes in the video).
