Dem. Congressman: "Let [Russia] Invade Georgia. It's Right Next to Them."

At an event at a Boca Raton synagogue, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said that the United States should let Russia invade Georgia. Beginning at the 3:50 mark in the following YouTube video, which was recorded by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, Nadler says:

We have not been willing to put our priorities properly. We have not been willing to say ... "Hey Russia, we won't expand NATO into the Ukraine and Georgia, right next to your borders, if you cooperate with us on Iran." ...

I think Iran and Israel are a hell of a lot more important than expanding NATO to Russia's borders. Why should we? What do we need it for?

Someone in the crowd says: "Because they invaded Georgia."

Nadler retorts: "So let 'em invade Georgia. It's right next to them. Would we tolerate a foreign--a Russian army in Mexico? Which is more important to us Georgia or Israel, frankly?"

Another voice in the crowd asks Nadler: "What is more important to us Czechoslovakia or Austria?"

"That's a completely separate kind of question," Nadler replies.
