Just take a look at a map of the middle east:
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Syria....
Talk about destabilization!
If the multiple fires of war being set in the middle east turns into a raging inferno, who do you think all of these countries are going to attack?
Israel is being surrounded by the dogs of war.
Did Israel ever expect the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to spread all over the middle east? Or were they under the impression that these wars would be, "managed conflicts?"
It appears Israel has pissed off the one muslim relationship they had left in the middle east for the last time.
I don't see a note here for this article yet. I wanted to put it in so it gets more of a bump. This is a decent article from someone who is not in full agreement with Ron Paul's foreign policy, but understands it's probably a lot smarter than the status quo or neocon nonsense. This is both the type of more civil/reasonable dialogue that needs to happen and also a good example of people coming into the fold despite not being 100% in agreement.

Fox's The Five Show Trashes Ron Paul , 2011
0:53 - "Hes actually polling 4th place in a lot of places"
1:48 "Do you think there's still like a little stirring of support for him"
2:18 "If he wants to do away with FEMA, i want to do away with Ron Paul, that would be a fair swap i think"
I hope everyone who visits this site is fully conversant about the Project for a New American Century. This is the neocon think tank that has defined American foreign policy, nightmare that it is, for the last decade. If you are not aware of PNAC, please research it. While it is no longer a group effort, individuals involved in the project continue to exert great influence. Just look at the list of co-signgers here: http://www.newamericancentury.org/statementofprinciples.htm
Keep in mind that many of the founders of PNAC hold dual Israeli citizenship.
Its time we are allowed to talk about Israel without the fear of being called an anti-Semite. If indeed Israel is a democracy, then free speech should not be a problem. Just as we can criticism the White House & Washington, we should be able to criticize Jerusalem & Tel Aviv
What follows are my suggestions to Dr. Paul. I also posted this in another thread as comment. Do you agree?
Question 1. FEMA
Say that private insurance is better than public because
a. You have a choice what to insure for how much,
b. You have competition,
c. You can sue private insurer if they don’t hold to their contract – with the government you don’t even have a contract, they will do whatever, and you have no recourse, and
d. – the most important of all – you don’t force other people to pay for your problems.
a. “We should be like 1900” – not convincing
This is the utter claptrap, garbage that the mainstream media feeds on through sound bytes. The most important quote which they forget to understand is:
"Ahmadinejad on Monday said that Iranians and Muslim nations worldwide should hold Qods rallies and show their willingness to dispose of this "infectious tumor and this REGIME full of rascality."
Never did he say that the people of Israel be ERADICATED.
A Christian attorney and terrorism expert says it's outrageous that Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has no problem with Iran getting a nuclear weapon.
During the recent GOP presidential debate from Ames, Iowa, televised on the Fox News Channel, Paul was asked to expound on earlier comments he made justifying Iran's right to have nuclear weapons.
