Ron Paul Tells Newsmax: I Support Israel
In an exclusive Newsmax interview, Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul confirmed his support for Israel, but cautioned that while the United States should be a friend of the Jewish state, America should not be the master of Israel.
Paul also says the United States should not dictate Israels borders or try to buy her allegiance with massive amounts of foreign aid. He argued that foreign aid has actually hurt not helped the Jewish state.
The interview was conducted by Newsmax contributor Doug Wead, a presidential historian and New York Times best-selling author.
Paul has recently come under fire from some Jewish groups in America. The Republican Jewish Coalition banned Paul from a debate on Jewish issues in Washington this week because of his misguided and extreme views, according to the groups executive director, Matt Brooks.
Newsmax chatted with Paul to get his side of the issue as the Texas Republican is surging in some presidential polls.
A new Washington Post-ABC News survey in Iowa shows him threatening Mitt Romney as the second-leading candidate behind Newt Gingrich. Paul is now tied with Romney in the early caucus state with 18 percent of the vote, behind Gingrichs 33 percent.

BULLSH$T! Paul is a FLIP-FLOPPING Coward!
Ron Paul 1488
The Final Solution for America
The two eights of the number 1488 stand for the eigth letter of the alphabet: H. And the two of them together form H H or Heil Hitler.
The fourteen part of the number 1488 stands for those fourteen words that every white supremacist knows: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children. (hat tip Bill Levinson)
Did Ron Paul accept money from Stormfront?
Hitler used to tell the jews that the train was taking them someplace “safe.”
"Conservatives" against Ron Paul are just like Liberals on the subject of personal charity. You can give all the time and money of your own to the poor that you want, but you aren't a "generous" person in Liberal eyes unless you favor taxing other people and giving their money to poor people.
Calm down. He has been very consistent in his views. Get your facts straight. Please explain why more active duty military support Paul more than all the others running for President combined. Think about it!
BTW: This vet agrees with Dr. Paul. We don’t need to be fighting wars for Israel. They can defend themselves.
Guy’s gone senile now.
“Please explain why more active duty military support Paul more than all the others running for President combined”, PROVE IT! Do you “know” this or do you “think” this?!
These people love getting American tax dollars.
Just go along with it!
Liked that ... will have to remember.
“He also says he is against earmarks, but can you think of anybody who garners more earmarks than him? I can’t.”
Really? You’ve done a bunch of research on Ron Paul and that’s what you came up with. You think he’s some sort of big spender?
He’s ranked a “Hero” by the Citizens Against Government Waste. Here’s the 2010 Rankings:
“Overall, 71 percent of military donations for the 2012 presidential race have gone to Ron Paul, while Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann received five percent, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney eight percent, and Cain 13 percent. All other candidates combined have received three percent of the military donations.”
Israel is on their own. If they start a war, they can finish it. We are burnt out on wars and need to take care of our own for a change.
Former President Ronald Reagan praised Paul for putting the troops first: ”Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.”
Here’s the breakdown (as of Aug 25, 2011):
Cain - $6223
Romney - $5000
Bachmann - $2550
Newt - $1025
Pawlenty - $250
Santorum - $250
Johnson - $0
Total GOP (excluding Ron Paul) - $15,298.00
Rep Ron Paul - $36,739.79
President Obama - $28,833.99
A suspect “source” at best.
