...Clue, get one.
You want to help Israel, don’t give money or weapons to Muslim’s. Israel would be 1000% stronger instantly.
The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree. Get back to us, Rand, when the Billions in foreign aid to Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Mexico are shut off.
Just like dear old dad, fund islamicfasist but screw Israel.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree..so he wants to cut off aid to Israel but I wonder if he wants to cut off aid to Muslim countries who want to destroy Israel
Sort of disappointing to hear such a statement from Ron’s son. Hoped Rand would steer clear of some of his father’s nuttier ideas.
The sooner that the entire nation of Israel learns to trust in and lean on the Holy One of Israel, the better the whole world will be.
Hopefully, the US will not turn our back on Israel during this time.
I gotta tell you, I for one am pretty sick of giving a rat's hairy behind about moral commitments (and that's what Israel is, it certainly isn't in America's narrow security interests to support them) when the Americans with the far greater cause to care can't seem to be bothered.
Watching the Muslims slowing but up this country’s media and helping idiots like Paul bots and Obama get into office is beyond frightening .
Then nasty anti-semite Hagel who treated everyone like crap while in office tells me
Israel is in deep trouble .
Israel is the ONLY reliable ally we have in the entire Mediterranean area. Its the only non-Muslim state in the Levant or North Africa.
Only a total idiot or a Paul could POSSIBLY come to such a conclusion.
Why is it that we get such loose cannons and people devoid of faith in the core principles they allege to follow in our ranks??????
What is wrong with Rand Paul? There’s no conceivable reason why anyone in Washington would make it a point to publicly express an opinion unfavorable to Israel unless he/she was seeking a position in the Obama administration.
No one has any reason to be interested in what Rand Paul might think about Israel except anti-semites whom Mr. Paul might be trying to ingratiate himself with.
I think noted "neo-con" Richard Perle was the author of a report on this very subject a while back.
It’s a good example of why I don’t trust libertarians. They pander to leftist prejudices. They know what they’re doing and want to stick it to Christian conservatives.
They turn a blind eye to the government legalizing abortion and then act like its nobodies business once it’s legal.
Maybe we should use that logic with the United States and China. I wonder if he thinks that would be a good idea too!
So Sen. Paul says we should first eliminate aid to Israel’s enemies before reducing aid to Israel. Arm Israel to the teeth while also eliminating to all Islamist countries? I’m cool with that.
I agree with his point that if they take our money, they also take the strings that are attached to it, and they need to be independently able to defend themselves. If, as some have stated in this thread, Netanyahu would also like to have our aid to them reduced so that they can be more independant, I’m cool with that too, as long as the whole world knows that we are completely on Israel’s side.
Less GOP $$$ to the Pauls would increase their libertarian self-reliance. No “straight party vote” ballot option either.
This is an old position of the Israeli right.
We should not be funding them or the Arabs. And the Arabs depend on the money more than Israel. In fact, by some estimates, we end up hurting the Israelis as they need to spend more on their military to match our funding of potential enemies.
