According to an article in the Jerusalem Post today, Rudy Guiliani has campaign organizations set up not just in all 50 US states, but also in the State of Israel.

The thousands of eligible absentee voters in Israel could have a significant impact on who will win the Republican and Democratic nominations. Giuliani is running first in a close Republican race.

And,

Schorer does have a problem, however, with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's perceived hints in media interviews that he supports Giuliani, with whom he forged a close friendship when he was mayor of Jerusalem and Giuliani was mayor of New York.

"It is highly appropriate for Americans in Israel to be involved in American politics but it is highly inappropriate for the Israeli government to express a preference for one personality or another who could lead the American people," Schorer said. "It's their job to work with whoever Americans choose to lead America."

If you've ever seen the 2005 documentary Protocols of Zion, which documents the rise of anti-Semitism in the US after the 9/11 attacks, you'll likely remember the part where Marc Levin is walking up and down the street asking random people about Jews and anti-Semitism.

Okay, actually that's what he does for most of the documentary, but there's one part in particular that I love — a young Middle Eastern guy is yelling about how all the Jews have taken over New York. Levin asks him what he means, and the guy responds, "Even the mayor of New York [at the time, Giuliani] is Jewish!" Levin tells the young pontificator that he's wrong. "Oh really?" he says, "Jew-liani? Jew-liani? That doesn't sound Jewish to you?"

I died laughing. The guy wasn't joking around. I'm sure this information about Giuliani's campaign organization in the State of Israel will add fuel to this guy's fire.
