Rand Paul: An attack on Israel is an attack on the United States

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul took what very well could be considered his most pro-Israel stance yet, saying in an interview that an attack on Israel should be treated as an attack on the United States.

Asked whether the United States would stand with Israel and provide it foreign aid if the Jewish state were attacked by its enemies, Paul went a step further.

“Well absolutely we stand with Israel,” he said in an interview with Breitbart News, “but what I think we should do is announce to the world – and I think it is pretty well known — that any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States.”

Yeah right

Rand will never get one cent or one second of support from me ever again. He should have resigned and gone back to being a doctor. At least I would still have had a smidgin of respect left for him.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau

Who's still kidding themselves?...

This body that has purchased the name Israel and the binding it to the unwitting souls there and more, they control most tools of control needed to ensure continued success, as most of us here have seen evidence of. Someone attempting to navigate a reclamation would appear suspect on every front he solicited their "fancy" from. Do I think he has the balls for it?...did Ron? They threatened Ron where it scared him the most. He backed down... maybe we would continue to come together, inspired by his vigilance and bravery.... a wise man in a time of owned fools. Bless mankind.

Can Rand Paul handle sixth generation Power Gangsters? Who could? Isn't a false sense of security usually a poor adviser? I wonder about people who are inspired to become politicians in the first place. Maybe we could use another complete letdown as a president to finally unify us with a humanitarian leader of the people.... whoever that will be. How much can one family do? Politics have purchased, swindled, control of words like "liberal" "responsibility" "freedom" into sick distortions. We will have yet another, and another tea party until we can sleep with ourselves.

The Sandy hook thing looks obvious but many are still clinging to their sanctity. It's pretty hard to wake up and realize that they refuse to play by the rules. As long as it continues brings this shit out in the open, I'm interested. I wanna see more films exposing real events, people don't even know what to call themselves anymore. Reclaim.

Well, people ARE

paying closer attention to these false flag staged shows and massacres. It might be getting harder to pull them off. There is apparently a rumor they are plotting to shoot up an airport, which would be a hilarious demonstration of the dismal failure of their so-called "security" measures. At any rate, the TSA gropers are being told to "save themselves" in the event off a lone berserk gunman.
More and more people are realizing we are under attack from our own government and their allies (Israeli agents the most likely agents assisting in these events, if not actually carrying them out).

Israel

I can not understand why an attack on a rasist Apartheid state that is hated by all of the informed world ,including most of America should have any thing to do with America . Every one knows that fear of aipac is the only reason any one that can read would make such a statement .

We should all just agree to

We should all just agree to disagree.

Somebody just took a massive "should" right in the middle of the page.

If Rand Runs For President In 2016

I'm voting for him. He's certainly way better than what we got! He is certainly way better than what the Republican Party is going to try to give us. He's young. He's ambitious. He is constitutionally closer than anybody to come along recently besides his father. Obama is currently trying to take this country apart piece by piece. I will not vote for a republican establishment candidate. However, I personally do NOT want to give Hillary the chance to finish the job of dismantling our country! There is no sense throwing the baby out with the bathwater in a fit of pique.

Rand sold out to the neocons.

Rand sold out to the neocons. It will be interesting to see how much money he gets from AIPAC and the Military Industrial Complex in his bid for re-election.

This is rich. Israel attacks

This is rich. Israel attacks America on 9/11 and ever since we have kissed its ass. Disgusting. Wake up folks. Israel did 9/11. See War by Deception 2013.

Agreed

My goodness, how in the hell

My goodness, how in the hell can you blame an entire country?

"America did it." Does that make every American guilty?

"Israel did 911." As if every single Jew is now guilty too...blanket statements like that don't make sense!

MULTIPLE countries were involved. EVIL political entities from all over the globe had their hands in the 911 pot.

The United States, Saudi Arabia (Bin Laden family), Israel, and England, "did 911."

Many colors and brushes were used to paint 911.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I doubt very seriously that

I doubt very seriously that Americans distinguished between Emperor Hirohito of Japan and Japan! Same goes for Israel. I don't blame all Israelis, and certainly not all Jews. I never said Israel was alone, but the principal figures behind 9/11 are dual Israeli/American citizens who were in the Bush administration.

I notice no one even tries to dispute that Israel was involved. They just ignore it. See War by Deception 2013 on Youtube.

I cannot believe all the negative

comments on Rand. Ron Pauls son is as close as we will get to what we are looking for. Do I agree with everything he says or does? NO! But God bless him, I'll vote for Rand Paul for prez in 2016 as early and often as I can.

just curious

Where is the line for you where you stop supporting him?

Rand Paul the judest.

Rand Paul, a control freak is not a man of liberty or principle. He is a Neocon as long as Congress declares the wars. If by some chance he got the nomination on the Republican Ticket in 2016 Republicans loose again.

Here. Rand wants to end all

Here. Rand wants to end all foreign aid.

Source: The New American

Paul proposed gradually reducing all U.S. foreign aid, with Israel being among the last recipients of such aid to feel the pinch.

“I’m all for gradualism,” he said. “I would start a little more quickly with those who are enemies of Israel, and enemies of the U.S. I would like to see their aid end more quickly. With regards to Israel, it could be a gradual phenomenon.”

In this he echoed the words of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who told Congress in 1996 that Israel needed to “achieve economic independence” from the United States by “gradually reducing the level of” U.S. aid — a speech that Paul cited twice in his remarks.

The second reason ending foreign aid would be beneficial, Paul said, is that making Israel self-sufficient would give it a free hand to make its own policy without having to seek permission from Washington. According to the Post:

Paul asked whether “our aid hampers Israel’s ability to make its own decisions as it sees fit,” and whether “our money sometimes clouds the sovereignty of Israel.”

The senator … said he was often asked what Israel should do about the settlements, Gaza and Iran.

“Well, America should and does have an opinion on these things,” he said. “But ultimately these are decisions you have to make. I don’t think you need to call me on the phone and get permission to stop missiles raining down from Gaza.”

Ron/Carol Paul will endorse Rand Paul in 2016!!!

Now what are you haters going to say about what???

What I am going to say is that

as much as I love Dr. Paul, I will not blindly support someone just because Dr. Paul endorsed him/her. Look at Ted Cruz.

I'm going to say, "He's their son"

What else could they do? Ergo, such an endorsement is meaningless.

Too bad Rand

didn't have a smidgen of that loyalty for his dad.

Sorry Michael

I love everything you've done for the liberty movement and am in no way trying to cuss out your opinion but... thats also like saying that if Ron Paul's son shared the exact same beliefs as George Bush Ron Paul would not be a traitor for endorsing him just because it's his son. I don't for a second believe that Ron Paul would jeopardize the entire liberty movement by endorsing and helping his son if he were in fact a neocon just like the rest of the establishment repubs. I think we should trust in Ron that his son is on our side rather than throw away the only chance we have at the moment of taking over the GOP. Rand realizes that in order to help our movement he must change things from within. He's one of the only people we have that can actually make it... Just because he supports Israel doesn't mean he's their puppet. Rand is the trojan horse we've needed to take our movement to the next level. We can't all agree with one another on everything, hell even Gary Johnson had many views that differed from Ron Paul. I'd still rather have someone like Rand in office who supports Israel but is still fighting things like the NDAA, TSA, Patriot Act and supporting other constitutional such as the 2nd amendment over all our other options. And if you take a hard look at what Rand is doing the only reason he went to Israel was to gain support from groups that are necessary to win the presidency. He may be saying that he wants to gradually end foreign aid but at least he actually wants to end it unlike all our other options. Even Ron Paul had to tone down his ideas of ending the fed by compromising and saying he only wanted to audit the FED. I think we all need to look at the bigger picture... thats just my opinion.

LIVE FREE OR DIE

But Ron would never make a

But Ron would never make a meaningless endorsement right?

It would be very meaningful

Wouldn't you want your son to be President of the United States?

The real question is: Meaningful to who?

I will be

surprised if Ron Paul endorses a Neocon for president, even if it is his son. Carol might. But I don't think Ron sees the presidency as such a great end all-be all.

Touché. This isn't even an

Touché. This isn't even an argument any way cause

A. Rand hasn't stated he is running
B. Ron hasn't endorsed anyone yet
C. We are not in any position to say either way cause we are not them. Everything is mere speculation at this time and completely pointless.

I could care less. Ron Paul

I could care less. Ron Paul is not perfect.

Ron Paul has endorsed some control freaks in the past

Ron Paul weakest point is his support of less than liberty minded people. So this is not new. I sure he hopes his son will come around to the liberty side of things.

Mike

Link?

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Rand Paul, you just continue

Rand Paul, you just continue your sickening decline into the pits of neoconservativism. If an attack on Israel is an attack on the US, then put on your OWN fucking uniform and die for em!

Rand is a leukemia rotting away the marrow of this withering movement. So many freakin idiots now on DP supporting him. It's depressing.

Revere, they are not rooted in liberty.

Thanks for seeing clearly Revere, Those folks who support Rand are not rooting in liberty they are just looking for a savior.

Live, eat, sleep and dream liberty.
