Skip to comments.Ron Paul: Know Who’s Really Behind Islamic Terrorism? The Jews.
Posted on 12/30/2011 12:24:19 PM PST by mnehring
One of the more insane claims in Ron Pauls newsletters was that the Israelis were behind the WTC bombings in 1993:
Whether [the 1993 World Trade Center bombing] was a setup by the Israeli Mossad, as a Jewish friend of mine suspects, or was truly a retaliation by the Islamic fundamentalists, matters little.
This claim is of course so ridiculous and absurd that even Paul has to protect himself by claiming that a Jewish friend told him about it. What a handy rhetorical device! If only Paul had had the foresight to couch all his racist remarks in the newsletters in this way, he wouldnt have any problems right now! As a black friend of mine once told me, 95% of all black people in DC are criminal or semi-criminal. See how effective that is?
Dan has already covered some of the statements in Pauls book (which he has not yet disavowed writing) that sound a lot like the newsletters he now disavows. One of the excerpts CNN did not cover was Pauls section on the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut. Youll never guess who Paul thinks was responsible:
The Middle East, in the last forty years, has soaked up billions of dollars in the name of American security and peace. The more we give Israel, the more we must give their Arab enemies. The height of this folly was vividly and tragically dramatized on October 23, 1981, with the killing of the 241 Marines in Beirut when their barracks were destroyed by radical Moslems. The terrorists probably were aided by Iran and supplied with explosives sold to them by Israel, originating from the United States and paid for by American taxpayers.
I have to admit that this is somewhat of a new spin on the usual anti-Israel conspiracy theory associated with this particular event. One thing that seems clear is that Pauls natural instinct is to disbelieve that Muslim terrorism can exist unless those rascally Jews are behind it somehow.
The more insane the statement by Paul, the worse the contortions of his suporters.
I wonder what Ron Paul’s present religious affiliation is?
Something like this...
"You're just not understanding what 'Dr. Paul' REALLY means. He is the only.. true..conservative....he..wants.. to.........re..store....con....sti...... *..
//fade to darkness//...
(Paulbot needing battery change)
Jews, is there anything they aren’t responsible for?
The latest was to accuse Conservatives of supporting the UN.
In Before the Paulbots.
Can’t wait to see the Paulbots contort to defend this one.
I actually looked this up the other day. I think a source I read said he had converted to the Baptist church at sometime for what it’s worth.
What is it with all the Jew hatred from the left and Paulbots. It’s not logical. I DO NOT GET IT. Will someone please explain where all this comes from. They don’t even have enough in sheer numbers to be a threat. Anyone?
OF COURSE! Who else would it be?
Kooks always blame the Jews for everything bad that ever happens. It is one of the surest signs of insanity.
Mercy! Paul must be getting a lot of financial support from the Central Casting Division of the DNC. There’s no other explanation for someone like him getting this far.
I believe throughout history, it is the cultural value they have on education and literacy. (pinging SJackson, I think he wrote on this before). When your culture values education, you end up in more successful positions and thus, people who aren’t successful blame them for their failures instead of themselves.
The escalating panic over Ron Paul is highly interesting.
First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.
“Whether [the 1993 World Trade Center bombing] was a setup by the Israeli Mossad,”
He’s a dilusional nutcase.
“as a Jewish friend of mine suspects”
EVERY bigot has a “pet” friend of the group he hates.
If the Mossad was running our security, there would have been NO 9/11!!!!
“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.”
Every defeated Quixotic fool thinks the same thing.
I’ve got a better one for you:
Goofy ideas breed resistance and derision.
Yes, and if the Jews really ran our financial system, we wouldn’t be $15 trillion in debt, now would we?
