Rand Paul’s New Message on Israel

The headline above comes directly from a WaPo blog post. The neocons are really pumping up Rand Paul.

Jennifer Rubin, the author of the blog post, writes yet another column about him:

Rand Paul has received some criticism for his own regarding Israel. This year he hung up a vote in the Senate on Iran sanctions. That, along with his previously emphatic statements against foreign aid, have given the appearance of being anti-Israel. Others, unfairly in our view, attribute his father’s views to him.

I asked him if there is one perception about him that is particularly wrong. Without skipping a beat, he replied, “That I am unfriendly to Israel.” He is going to Israel for the first time. He told me, “We’ll have some meetings with political leaders. I want to hear from all sides.”

Then she brings out the heavy artillery, a "pro-Israel leader" and a Zionist-Christian leader to comment on Rand:

Christian Zionists appear willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, for now. One pro-Israel leader says, “The question before me is if he is different than his dad — smarter than his dad – or just making the right noise.” He adds wryly, “Evangelicals believe in forgiveness.”

No cliche photos, Rand!

I hope Rand is aware of how phony it looks to have your picture taken while wearing a borrowed yarmulke at the wailing wall.

I'm as big of a Rand

I'm as big of a Rand supporter as there is, but I have to admit I don't like this at all. Rand DOES NOT need to get the support of someone like Jennifer Rubin. None of the grassroots conservatives even know who this woman is. She's completely irrelevant in Rand's quest to win the 2016 nomination. She's also a hardcore neo-con, fake conservative who criticized Jim Demint for opposing tax increases.

So I basically got this from

So I basically got this from the article. Rand is almost neo-con in the eyes of the neo-con and they want him to prove to them that he is a super neo-con. while condescending his father as being a dumb ass because in his ignorant fathers mind, America comes first before israel. now Rand do as we say. and go kiss ass to Israel and in politics you will go very far...maybe even presidency if we like how you are obeying us, your masters.
This game they play is from the very pits of hell itself.

Tread lightly, Rand.

I'm still on the fence about Rand. I really hope Rand is just playing ball with the criminals right now. I really hope that.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Can we leave group demands in the Middle East

to New World Order and concentrate on promoting individual liberties here at home?

Unhealthy obsession got to the point that DP looks like a progressive collectivist outlet confusing things. If you worry about individual rights of muslims, lets post articles about US mistreatment of muslims we occupy and muslims killed by Sharia Law. If we worry about wasted money, lets talk more about $trillions to EU banks. Otherwise, it is all a hidden agenda that wont bring us any more supporters.

Obama is a Zionist, Clinton is a Zionist, Carter is a Zionist, Putin is a Zionist, Elvis Presley was a Zionist, etc - all support Israel's right to exist as its own state. Details must be negotiated between the parties on the ground. Abbas never followed thru with signed "Road Map."

voted up for truth!

Also don't worry about the National Socialsts here who are bashing Zionists. Intelligent DP users do not take anything these mental midgets say seriously. When the racists finally realize their propaganda doesn't get any traction here they will go back to Stormfront. :)

Disregard government. Acquire liberty.

That's a great idea, lets

That's a great idea, lets shut up about the Middle East and stop supporting traitorous politicians that put foreign interests over American interests via war and sanctions.

Rand why don't you go to Bern Switzerland

and set up a meeting for both sides and help bring lasting peace this way?

Can we get all sides come together talking in a capital city of a neutral country?

David Brog can kiss my Southern grits!

The Palestinians ARE NOT my enemies, nor are they America's enemies. It's time to cut Israel loose.

Did they tell him he had to

Did they tell him he had to go to Israel or no more press appearances?
