Ron Paul Wishes Israel Didn't Exist
Baltimore Jewish Life ^ | 12/26/11 | Yitzchak Benhorin, Ynet News

WASHINGTON – Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul negates Israel's right to exist, Eric Dondero, who served as a senior aide to the 76-year-old Texas congressman for over 12 years, said on Monday.

In a blog posted in Rightwing News, Dondero said that while Paul was, in his opinion, neither a racist nor an anti-Semite, he is very much anti-Israel.

"I worked for the man for 12 years (and) I never heard a racist word expressed towards Blacks or Jews come out of his mouth… I can categorically say that I never heard anything out of his mouth, in hundreds of speeches I listened to over the years, that could be called, anti-Semite," he writes.

Now, don’t take this wrong, but without Israel, we could nuke the ENTIRE ME from space without fear of hurting the ones we love.

Ron Paul is a crazy, lunatic, fanatic, kooky, insane, spooky, shrill voiced, gangly, poorly dressed, cowardly, anti-American, extremist, leftist, useful idiot, moronic old man and ALMOST as bad as Newt, Mitt, Rick and the rest of them.

He’s singing from the same page as Obama.

Obama has set the stage, surrounding Israel with radicals in power, for the purpose of ending Israel’s existence. Most American Jews support Obama.

Sick.

Roswell Ron needs to go to Stonehenge, where the mother ship can land and take him back to Zeta Reticuli. Foreign Policy INSANITY.

This Eric Dondero, right? The aide who claims he quit, but Ron Paul claims he fired? The guy whose name is Eric Dondero Rittberg and who changed, or changes his name around?

Who knows Paul well enough to say he's not an ant-Semite, but to say in the same article:

There is much more information I could give you on the sheer lunacy of his foreign policy views.

Because Ron Paul's *so* not-anti-Semite than in the middle of his newsletters, after giving advice on investments, and telling in the first person what's going on in Congress, and talking about the New World Order, he just casually drops in a short blurb about those damn Jews and the ADL.

You know, like we would all do in a newsletter that we wouldn't read because it's clear we had nothing to do with it.

Well, a Merry Ron Paul Christmas to you, and look under the bed for those Trilateralists!

Ron Paul! Because .000000002% of the population's not as nuts as he is!

[... The congressman’s former aide insists in his blog that Paul expressed the controversial sentiment “numerous times in our private conversations.” ...]

1. How convenient and slimey of the aide to attribute the unprovable to Ron Paul.

2. Someone must be terrified of a Ron Paul win.

3. My 2cents.

Ron Paul's as sane as anyb . . .

The General Accounting Office -- THE MAASAS AND DISGRUNTLED JEWS MAY HAVE BOMBED THE WORLD TRADE CENTER -- Invest in Gold

I'm sorry. I was just channeling Ron Paul, April 1993. I wish I had a Jewish friend. Ron Paul does.

A disgruntled employee is not a accurate source of information. Ron Paul states that he was not aware of what was in his newsletters and disavowed their content. The question was asked and answered. Ron Paul states that he would support Israel and would stop foreign aid. He is the only candidate that would go against the massive Federal government. This explains why he is being unfairly attacked and slandered by the MSM.

It's very simple: If your name is on it, and you make money from it - YOU OWN IT AND ITS CONTENTS.

..................

I haven't commented much on Paul this time around since his "conservatism" has been pretty much debunked on FR. In the unlikely event he makes a couple strong showings he'll present the bigotry issue to Obama on a silver platter, the fact that a few conservatives, on FR, outed him last election cycle won't matter. And the press will love it. However I'll add a comment I made a couple weeks ago, there's no question that Paul is anti-Israel.

Of course opposing aid isn't antisemitism, and I doubt is antisemitic though he's clearly anti Israel, sympathetic to arab revisionism.

Leaving aside his fetis with neocons and the Likud party, and the "Jewish Lobby", the only powerful lobby in DC, there's his view of the region as expressed in his book.

He does acknowledge a few hundred thousand were expelled a few millenia ago, and that a few families stayed. And unlike the Arab world that the Jews who moved to Palestine (don't think he knows that was the name for the Jewish Homeland, stupidity when you're commenting on an important topic. However he describes Zionism as a movement of Orthodox Jews (Herzl would be surprised as would have most of the "Orthodox" of the day) who wanted to separate secular European Jews from the culture they had assimilated into so well. Secular European Jews fully integrated and accepted into late 19th century Europe, like Alfred Dreyfus. Is Paul stupid, or a revisionist.

Then his history conveniently skips forward to post WWI, where the UN decided to partition Palestine. Apparently out of thin air, no Mandate, no partitioning at San Remo, no pogrums. The UN just up and decided to do it.

Probably most telling is his experience meeting a young palestinian attending school in the US. Her story about how her family was thrown off land in her family for centuries. To build Israeli settlements. This happened in the early 1950s, clear proof that Ron considers Tel Aviv a settlement. Like San Antonio I guess. But what the heck, it was just a group of people taking land from others on the specious arguement that G-d told them to do it. Classic pro-Arab fairy tale from the Congressman.

BTW, his #1 book to read on the topic, Jimmy Carter's Apartheid work. It's on the Code Pink suggested reading list too.
