Rapture, rapture, where you been?

Raw Story reports on a piece from Max Blumenthal at The Nation about meetings at the White House...

...about its policies in the Middle East with leaders of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), a newly formed political organization that tells its members that supporting Israel's expansionist policies is "a biblical imperative." CUFI's Washington lobbyist, David Brog, told me that during the meetings, CUFI representatives pressed White House officials to adopt a more confrontational posture toward Iran, refuse aid to the Palestinians and give Israel a free hand as it ramped up its military conflict with Hezbollah.

The White House instructed Brog not to reveal the names of officials he met with, Brog said.

No sir, no signs that this is becoming a true "religious war" in every sense.  None at all.

Kind of reminds me of a new version of the old Army marching song to keep the enlisted folks in step:

Rapture, rapture, where you been?
Round the Middle East & back again.
Sound off, one two
Sound off, three four,
Cadence count, now we seek war,
Yes sir, we seek war!
