No surprise here. Remember when he called Operation Cast Lead, which was Israels response to thousands of Hamas rocket firings, a case of preemptive war?
Americas Greatest Patriot wants you to believe hes a study in non-interventionist neutrality, with his knocks on Israel a mere function of the fact that we continue to prop them up with foreign aid. Because the U.S. is kinda sorta responsible for their behavior, goes the logic, theyre fair game for criticism.
Why hed want to maintain a posture of neutrality between Israel and an eliminationist outfit like Hamas, I have no idea, but lay that aside.
Amoral neutrality doesnt excuse his use of propaganda as impartial news sources have noted, Gaza isnt starving nor does it explain his relentless attempts over the past several years to minimize the threat from Iranian nuclear weapons.

No surprise. He is anti-Israel.
If true that he blames Israel on this, then calling him a nut really doesn’t do justice to his inability to see clearly.
He would be a “blind leader of the blind.”
Amazing how people’s feelings about Israel can turn their perception of reality upside down.
What a creepy freak and antisemite that guy is.
I can’t stand him or his loser supporters.
Ron Paul ... an associate of Muslim terrorists ... that’s all ...
For me, Ron Paul is a lot like Pat Buchanan. A lot of what he says sounds right to me; the rest is pure, unadulterated crap.
And this is why Ron Paul can never and will never be President.
Have been thankful occasionally that he’s raised some issues.
I’ve never trusted him.
Wouldn’t want to vote for him as dog catcher.
Not so...he is anti-Zionist which is far from the same thing as antisemitic. Nevertheless, I think he is wrong about this. While I am pro-Zionist, charges of racism, antisemitism, etc. are all too often lightly cast about.
I wish RP would figure out that abstract principles are useful, but that you also have to have a serious, practical program for advancing them. Leaving Israel to the mercy of the Muslims, which is the actual policy of Obamalini, cannot be taken seriously as foreign policy and will lead to disaster.
No, he is anti-Semitic.
Not so...he is anti-Zionist ...
If one is "anti-Zionist" -- that's what I define as anti-semitic ... :-)
Wouldnt want to vote for him as dog catcher.
You're right on that count ... even dogs deserve better ... :-)
“If one is “anti-Zionist” — that’s what I define as anti-semitic ... :-)”
You may if you like, but there are many Orthodox anti-Zionist Jews ;-)
Do you think I got carried away on the Gog/Magog thread?
I get fed up with folks trashing such threads when they don’t demonstrate a gnat’s burp’s worth of understanding nor even Biblical knowledge about the facts and just spew nonsense and that very haughtily. GRRRR
