DES MOINES, Iowa Republican presidential candidate Ron Pauls views on Israel and Iran have been greatly misunderstood, his son Senator Rand Paul said in a conversation with The Jerusalem Post just hours before Iowans voted in the first caucuses for the GOP nomination Tuesday night.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who like his father espouses libertarian views, said his fathers positions on the threat of a nuclear Iran are in line with those of Mossad head Tamir Pardo and other prominent Israeli figures, who he suggested has questioned the wisdom of using a military option against Iran.
Pardo was quoted by Haaretz as telling Israels diplomats in a closed-door meeting that a nuclear Iran was not necessarily an existential threat to Israel.
Nobody wants Iran to have nuclear weapons. It would destabilize the Middle East, Rand Paul told the Post following a campaign event in a Des Moines high school, where hundreds of students cheered at his fathers appearance.
And yet, we have to ask, would it be worse to have a preemptive war with Iran or better? Or can we contain them? We contained the Soviet Union, Rand Paul said.

Yea, no. We understand perfectly.
Just ask his pals at Code Pink, Hamas, Turkey , Iran about his support if his support for the Terrorist
Code Pink Flotilla against Israel !
“He doesn’t want everyone in Israel to die in a nuclear holocaust ... just the Jews.”
Wait you forgot that David Duke and that guy with the last name Black (neonazi) endorsed him.
Paul is a racist, anti-Semitic, anti-American (blames America for everything) sot.
Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke,
You gotta understand,
It’s just our bringin’ up-ke
That gets us out of hand.
Our mothers all are junkies,
Our fathers all are drunks.
Golly Moses, natcherly we’re punks!
Gee, Officer Krupke, we’re very upset;
We never had the love that ev’ry child oughta get.
We ain’t no delinquents,
Deep down inside us there is good!
There is good!
There is good, there is good,
There is untapped good!
Like inside, the worst of us is good!
Rand, with all due respect..I understand PERFECTLY your daddy’s views on Israel..let’s see..he thinks the 1993 world trade center bombing was done by the Mossad, he thinks Hamas was created by Israel, and he thinks that Israel should be given to the Arabs..but hey if Ive missed how much he loves Israel please feel free to correct me
Rand, best to keep your distance from the old guy...politically.
I think Rand and Ron’s problem is that we know Ron Paul’s position on Israel very well.
Even with English as my 6th language, it is clear to me...
How does his support of Iran having a nuclear weapon square with misunderstanding his position on Israel?
Pardo is the FORMER head because Bibi kicked his crazy ass out. He was put in by leftie Olmert and is equally a traitor as was Rabin and is Barak.
Who cares about Israel when we ARE $17 TRILLION AND COUNTING IN DEBT, if you can’t understand why that makes us a bad judge of foreign countries or conflicts then maybe you would like to give me your wallet and your life savings cause you clearly can be easily seperated from it and don’t mind bailing out foreign banks as well as running foreign country police programs and foreign war on poverty programs with other people’s money and you don’t mind unemployment, cause the further we go into debt the more likely all of us wil lbe doing more than looking for jobs but looking for exits, and killing more terrorists will not erase the climbing debt.
We didn’t have much debt on September 10, 2001.
The people who want to destroy Israel are the same ones who want to destroy America.
Who cares about Israel? I care about Israel, my I am Jewish, my parents, aunt, and uncles came from Israel in the late 60s. I have family in Israel. Does Israel need our money, absolutely NOT..but when I hear a guy say that Israel should be given to the Arabs(My father fought in the ‘67 war) I say he can kiss my a@@.
What part of calling them an “Apartheid State” to Iran’s State media is misunderstood?
I’ve seen that picture posted dozens of times, and every time I see it, the uglier that chick looks.
Rand can’t polish daddy’s turd.
“Republican presidential candidate Ron Pauls views on Israel and Iran have been greatly misunderstood, his son Senator Rand Paul said in a conversation with The Jerusalem Post just hours before Iowans voted in the first caucuses for the GOP nomination Tuesday night. “
No they are not. He’s an anti semite.
