I think the paragraph below needs to be publicized a lot more. Dr. Paul gets a lot of undeserved flak when it comes to Israel. Meanwhile he stood up for their right to defend themselves when "almost the entire U.S. Congress voted to condemn the act". I'm Jewish, by the way, and I fully support Dr. Paul.
Ron Paul would not stop Israel from defending her interests in any way she saw fit. When Israel attacked a nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981, almost the entire U.S. Congress voted to condemn the act. Ron Paul was one of the few dissenters: he voted against the condemnation and in favor of Israel’s right to self-determination.
