NY state senator poses in Israeli uniform with weapon on Syria border

A New York state senator has been photographed with a weapon in his hands and posing for a picture in an Israeli army uniform on the Syrian border during an official trip to Israel.

A photo posted online on August 15 showed State Sen. David Storobin in an Israeli army uniform and with a rifle in his hands side-by-side with Israeli officers.

Storobin, who is running for reelection as a Republican, is seen standing next to Gen. Shculik Olansky, who is in charge of Israel's Golan Heights Armor Division.

Well he is half right. Next

Well he is half right. Next step is to just stay there himself and fight if he really wants to defend them.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Pretty Pathetic

Running for an office that has no say over foreign policy, state senator, by advocating putting a foreign country first.

I wonder what his constituents think

Obviouly he is not out there for real training, its a State Senator seeking images for political gain. If he didn't believe this was supported by his constituents, he wouldn't have done it.

A US Soldier would never wear a flag/patch/emblem of another nation, and a I would suspect a representative of the government should be held to that same standard. But as we all know this is "special" friendship so all is excused.

Huh ?I have mixed feelings

Huh ?

I have mixed feelings about this.

On one hand, I wanted to comment on the OP's post: okay, and how does that relate to our stand for Liberty with Ron Paul or whoever would faithfully support his platform?

Then, I realized this is actually helpful, but may not be worth more than this (which is, granted, quite a lot, already) :

to show the american people THE DEPTH OF CONFUSION in some of their representatives' minds, indeed !

I don't care, for a second, whether he is a Jew or pro-Israel, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Atheist, Red Onion-adorer, or as I like to say, in the Swimming-With-My-Dog-in-Great-Lakes-on-the-path-to-Awakening ...

The question I'd ask him:

senator, what is your country's borders' safety you're concerned with ? The United States of America's or the United Nations' bureaucrats' abstract one's ?

'Coz, you know, senator :

while you're at it, you might as well consider our solar system or our entire Galaxy.

Nothing proves we DON'T have BAD FANATIC TERRORIST ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS past Alpha Centauri in our Galaxy, so be prepared !

By that "U.N. abstract one" above, I don't mean to deny Israel, of course. I just mean to say IT DOESN'T make sense for a U.S. senator, who I would assume be a U.S. citizen, care for the sovereignty of another nation FORMALLY defined by the U.N. earlier in history.

If he is not American, but Israeli instead, why the hell would he live and take public representative charges in the U.S. while concerned with Israel's interest ? Isn't it the same country who had ITS OWN officials say THEY DO NOT NEED NOR CALL FOR American help to defend THEIR SOVEREIGNTY ?

Which new DICTIONARY should I use that I have missed thus far ?

Blatant warmongering

Here is a US representative playing out his adolescent soldier fantasies and pandering for war with a country that does not threaten the U.S. on behalf of another country.

I think it is a sickening example of those that are so willing to send our troops to these endless undeclared wars. I think he and all the other chicken hawks should stay there and actually fight if they want so badly to be involved.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

For all those pro-Israeli

What if this senator had put on British, German, or any other countries uniform for that matter and posed for pictures? It would be scandalous, but because the US is merely a puppet for the State of Israel and the right wing Christians have been brainwashed into believing Christ wants them to protect Israel. They cheer it on.

It makes my stomache turn when i see presidential candidates going to Israel and donning Jewish attire for political gain. It's so so wrong, but they get away with it every year because people aren't educated even in their own faith.

Our Greatest Friend

For all those who believe Jews care about the US; take a good look. They don't even try to hide their allegiance. There are traitors everywhere.

They Only Care About Stealing Our Money

The Rothschilds two created factions are destroying our country, the Federal Reserve and Zionism. Here, is an excellent outline of the House of Rothschilds http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol...

We also have their Sabbatean Brothers who run Hollywood, MSM, Porn industry, 5th Ave Adverizing, Homosexual groups, all which contribute to the destruction of our culture, spirituality, and our nation. There have been many Jewish writers who even brag about the fact they control all these groups, but people fail to see through the fog or fear the attacks of being called antiSemetic.

Here is a well researched article

long, but well worth the read

HMMM Let,s see:

Standing on the front line in danger of being shot.
Wearing another countries uniform.
Then being stupid enough to allow it to be published.
Isn't there some way to have this man brought up on charges of treason.
OH. I forgot. They almost all should be, but it isn't going to happen.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government
