Michele Bachmann: Obama + Kerry "calling for actual war" against Israel

Secretary of State John Kerry recently suggested that if Mideast peace talks collapse, Israel could face increasing economic boycotts or possibly a Palestinian uprising.

Kerry did not advocate for such, but simply warned that such events could occur if negotiations fail.

That sentiment was echoed by Israel's own Justice Minister who said of the statement that it "does not constitute a threat to the State of Israel, but rather defines reality as it is." Israel's finance minister also offered similar warnings.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the other hand, would much prefer it if the Obama administration had actually threatened boycotts and violence against Israel directly, and so decided to claim such during a Friday interview on Washington Watch with the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins.

"President Obama and John Kerry have preferred Iran" over Israel, Bachmann claimed. "At the same time while the United States is giving a free pass to Iran, our Secretary of State is rattling a saber and effectively calling for an economic war against our greatest ally Israel. It doesn’t make any sense."

"They can't have it both ways," she also said. "They can't say that they are pro-Israel and stand with Israel while calling for actual war and economic war against Israel, or at least suggesting it as such."

Which is true, but a completely moot point since no call for actual war was ever made.

Michele Bachmann's war against reality continues to be as futile as ever.
