“Eliminate Israel” – Ron Paul

(Whitney Martin/The Battalion) Senator Ron Paul adresses a group of students about his political views Tuesday evening in Rudder Tower.  In his speech, Ron Paul speaks about the proper role of the constitution within the government.

Althouse: Ron Paul is not an anti-Semite, but he is "most certainly Anti-Israel, and Anti-Israeli in general."

"He wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all. He expressed this to me numerous times in our private conversations. His view is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs."
Writes Eric Dondero, who was a senior aide to Ron Paul, 1997-2003, campaign coordinator in 1995/96, the national organizer of Draft Ron Paul for President (1991/92), and a personal assistant to Ron Paul 1987/88.  Dondero also writes that Ron Paul is not a racist, that in 12 years of working for the man, he "never heard a racist word expressed towards Blacks or Jews come out of his mouth."

ron_paul_2I, for one, wish that Ron Paul did not exist at all.  I believe he’s more trouble than he is worth, costing the US taxpayer and the Republican party more than he is worth.  I also believe that people who support calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state are state enemies and advocating a position that would cost millions of lives.  They are effectively advocating genocide and the destruction of a nation, whether they directly phrase it that way or not.

No American politician has any obligation to like Israel, support any type of foreign aide for Israel, or support a friendly nation to nation relationship with Israel.  If the U.S. Congressman from Texas Ron Paul wishes to advocate stopping US foreign aide to Israel, stopping any military or political relationship, or even advocating that the U.S. freeze relations with Israel, then he is expressing a political position.  One with which I may disagree, but a political position nonetheless. 

But to recommend the “abolishment” of a nation-state?  As they say in Texas, them’s fighting words.  Since we’ve never heard Congressman Paul advocate the abolishment of the Soviet Union or Russia, or Cuba, or even Afghanistan, Al Quieda, or North Korea, all clear enemies of the United States, we can safely understand that indeed U.S. Congressman from Texas Ron Paul is indeed a sophisticated Anti-Semite who has a politicians knack for cloaking his meaning.

He may be the only presidential candidate with small government or libertarian principles, but on world politics he’s extremely isolationist and now exposed as an anti-semite.  Unfortunate.

UPDATE: A commentor says Ron Paul directly says otherwise and shares this video of him giving his position on Israel (below).  I happen to agree with what’s said by Congressman Paul in these 2 minutes.

I suggest you check out Ron Paul's own words on this. He is very pro-Israel:

Akiva,
What difference does it make...even IF he is against the state of Israel? He is PRO-America. He won't take sides. We won't get aid, the arabs won't get aid. At the end of the day, we are sovereign and left to do what needs to be done.

The ones who claim that they love Jews but are just anti-Zionist are ultimately bigger and far more dangerous anti-Semites than the ones who don't hide their anti-Semitism against Jews in general - for two reasons: 1)They lure people to thinking that they aren't racist against Jews while poisining their minds with anti-Israel/Zionism beliefs. 2)Just like the Syrian Greeks who pretended that they didn't hate Jews except that they wanted them to be secular, attempting to take away the holiness from the Jew, the anti-Zionist who claims that he loves Jews is in effect doing the same thing, by denying that we Jews have rights to our Holy Land, so long as we are useful for them in our spiritual exile.

intresting world many xtians turning into lovers of god and israel many muslims into lovers of god and haters of israel and many many jews into haters of god and israel . Which means jc had very good points against the rabbinate of israel, all the more so does he today ! for the rabbinute is rotten in the reform conservatove and orthodox . We ignored the prophet kahane so israel has turned conciousely and unconciousely to the prophet yeshu .

In general, Ron Paul wants to stop all Foreign aide to all countries.

He isn't anti-Israel.

I'm glad this article was updated. I've never heard Dr. Paul side with the PA against Israel or state that he thinks Israel shouldn't be a nation. There are many disgruntled troublemakers out there who misquote and/or misrepresent Dr. Paul position on many issues.

The bottom line is that his focus on "liberty," "smaller government," and his wanting the US to stop acting like the "World Police" attracts a lot of different elements out there on the fringe and some of these folks are indeed anti-Semitic & anti-Israel.

That said, didn't Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of both the Jewish Defense League (JDL) in the USA and Kach ("This is the Way"), an Israeli political party, also want to put an end to the USA sending money to Israel. Did he too want Israel to stand on their own two feet?

Dr. Paul is the only candidate that would give Israel a free-hand to deal with PA and Iran and others, but he has warned that Israel would have to deal with the consquences of any actions they take.

Nevertheless, for better or worse, and even if Dr. Paul by some miracle won an election and became our next president, US ties with Israel will never be cut, because the military industrial complex of both nations are working together on too many projects.

Further, the US has a vested interest in keeping the oil flowing and they need to keep the Middle East in turmoil, because it gives us an excuse to meddle in the affairs of the Nations in the region. If the US ever pulled out completely, the Chinese would just take our place, if you catch my drift.

Didn't R. Akiva or someone here post images of a fenced off US station (or base) in Israel? What article was that?

Here's another good video of Dr. Paul expounding on his position on Israel:
